Since last couple of years I have to travel abroad alot due to my work. I need a guitar that I could carry with me. So sad that I can not find any stores who carry the traveler guitar here in my place. I have no chance to try and I think I have to buy from eBay or any online stores.

Does anybody here have or used to tried one? What is the brand and what model?

I do a lot of travelling as well and I must admit that the Traveller Speedster delivered :-)

I got my first one from Guitar Center in NY. Of the three that I tried, only the one i got had dead straight neck and acceptable side fret finish. I gave her as a present to a very good friend of mine who travels much more than I do. She's compact, light and the Candy Apple Red Metallic version is eye-catching. The neck is a 22-fret gibson scale, but the tuners are not too sturd- cannot handle big bends. I just keep in mind that when I play, so she stays in-tune.

Being satisfied by her playability (not much from the sound), I got my second one (the one that I still have) from Singapore. Again, out of the two that the store carried, I chose the one set up best.

I chanched the original single-sized humbucker with a single Tone Zone. The sound changed BIG TIME!!!! I even challenged a friend of mine who played a re-issue Gibson Les Paul ;-). Tons of mids and sustain. But maybe I was lucky enough.

Still carry her around for practice and in a few gigs she was my life-saving lady, like when I broke my A string on my Modulus - Floral - Villex Floral Jem :-D

Still I would suggest to try one hands-on to get a properly set Traveller Guitar

Hey Choo, havent seen you around here for a long time... hope you are well..

Are you after electric travel guitar or acoustic ?

I won a Washburn travel acoustic and its pretty good.... But I reckon I would rather buy an electric travel and plug into headphones. that would be way more fun

Thanks a bunch for your helpful information, etfmusic. I will order one for myself today, but a EG1. Speedloader looks strange to me ... :-) badly i have no chance to make a trial. Hope I would get a good one. I am buying a Gibson pups to replace the stock one. Hope it would help.

Hi Julien.. I have been very busy at work. Got a new promotion and much more work.. Jumping around from place to another place. How are you doing bro? Hope you are fine as always. I may go to Australia by December. I will let you know if my plan is done :-)
