Traveler Guitar Ultra Light Review
The Traveler Guitar Ultra Light is one of the smallest, lightest electric guitars available. Convenience was taken into consideration as it fits easily into airline overhead bins – making it perfect for traveling musicians. Plus, its In-Body tuning system uses standard tuners relocated inside the body of the guitar instead of requiring a headstock, providing full scale playing experience without needing to use one.
It’s the ideal size for airline carry-on spaces and comes in a convenient gig bag. Plus, it’s easy to play due to its solid wood construction – making this guitar an excellent all-around travel choice! Not only that, but it sounds pretty great too!
This guitar looks like it was handmade with joy in mind. Crafted from sapele wood, its body and neck feature some great features such as a removable armrest for practicing sitting down.
This guitar boasts plenty of output, thanks to dual humbuckers that produce some gritty, heavy sounds when the gain is turned up. It also works through clean channels for a diverse selection of tones and styles.
Touring musicians and festival goers who have room in their vehicles for an amp can benefit from this model. Additionally, students or kids looking for a lightweight yet compact acoustic-electric instrument to take on the road will find this model ideal.
The guitar features an acoustic piezo pickup and 1/4-inch output jack for connecting to any recording or amp device. Powered by a single lithium-ion battery, this instrument can be charged using the included USB cable.
For practicing and teaching guitar basics, the Yamaha SLG200S is an ideal option. Its detachable frame makes it portable while its SRT preamp captures acoustic guitar resonance without needing external amplifier. Plus, its sound quality is superb – plus, you get a convenient gig bag too.
Travel electric guitars come in a wide range of sizes and shapes, making it difficult to choose the one that’s ideal for you. Popular options include full-bodied, narrow-bodied and 3/4 sized models.
Full-bodied guitars are more commonly known and tend to be easier to play while sitting down. Furthermore, these instruments tend to be lighter in weight than narrow or 3/4 sized guitars.
They may be more expensive, but the versatility makes them worth the cost. Plus, you’re more likely to find them compatible with all standard guitar pickups, volumes and tone controls.
Narrow-bodied travel guitars tend to be the smallest and lightest, though they may not be as comfortable to play as larger instruments. Furthermore, these models may be too bulky for airline carry-on bags, making them more expensive due to higher shipping costs.
Unfortunately, the Ultra-Light has to give up playing feel and sound for portability, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. At 28% shorter and 68% lighter than an ‘average’ electric guitar, it can easily fit into most small suitcases for travel.
