5 Travel Guitars To Rock On

Traveling for a musician is such a big deal, because you need to transport the instrument and make sure it will not break on the way. Travel guitars were invented to help you with that.

Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Acoustic

The Ultra-Light is probably the smallest, lightest, full-scale travel guitar on the market.

It has a proprietary, In-Body tuning system that uses standard tuning machines relocated into the body. This essentially eliminates the need for a headstock, reducing the guitar size.

Another advantage of this guitar is that you’ll have the same full-scale playing experience you already have on a standard instrument. However, this full-scale fretboard comes in a substantially shorter and lighter body than a typical full-size acoustic.

The Ultra-Light also comes equipped with electronics: an acoustic piezo pickup and a standard 1/4-inch output jack. You can plug into your favorite amp, recording device, or headphone and practice wherever you want.
