So this is a thing. Wow.
Oh, God! No, just no.
Where did I put that eye bleach?
welp, at least it's not a banjo
WTH? Does it have a speaker in it?
I travel for work with a guy who has one of those. It's okay, I guess I don't really see the benefit of moving the tuners, especially to a spot that leaves them so exposed to damage (and they're not as easily replaced as normal tuners). Sound-wise, it's just a cheap plywood guitar. Okay for practice, but its voice is dead and plunky. I don't think my friend's model has the electronics in it.
We both drive to this site where we work, so bringing a "real" guitar isn't much more of a hassle than the Traveler. I either take one of my Teles along, or my Washburn dreadnought. We sometimes sit in the motel bar and noodle on our guitars. Mine sound better.
I like it.
Looks a lot like a Taylor with an Epiphone pre in it.
+1 yeah, I don't see an advantage of having a slightly shorter guitar either. I suppose if you fly a lot, but at the other end, you have a cheap weird looking guitar to play.
They should have sunk those tuners inside the body dimensions, otherwise they should have just put them up on the 'headstock' end for all the shortening they are getting there.
Poor attempt at reinventing the wheel. No thanks.
Yea, tuner location is a fail. I'm very interested in the concept and functionality though. One of the things that make or break a sub-scale guitars tone is the scale length. The Martin D Jr, and Taylor Big Baby got that right. Maybe they'll heed the feedback.
I get it.
Heck, I might even get one!
Looks like a guitar with some non-traditional design elements.
It's not a thing, it's a thang.
Needs a Floyd.
I’m not crazy about sunbursts either, but yes they are a thing.
The best travel guitar I ever saw was the Voyage-Air, with the hinged neck. You didn't even need to detune it and when you swung the neck back into playing position it was still in-tune. The shop where I worked sold quite a few, but then they cheapened the hinge and the neck socket, and it didn't work right anymore, so we had to drop them. I hope they realized their error and returned to the better quality neck joint, because it really was a great idea that worked amazingly well in the real world.
They also make a Tele and LP Special P90 style.
