After a few days with this travel guitar I can say...

It ROCKS…!!! Great little guitar. Full size neck, very similar to a Les Paul, great action very comfortable to play… Pull out the Pignose knob and you can play through it's built in amp and speaker. Don't pull out the knob and plug in a 1/4 inch jack and into an external amp and use it as a regular guitar. Only drawback is no tone control. That's more evident when using the internal amp and speaker, sounds a little tinny. Exception quality build. Very impressed...

Cool... you see no one believes me when I say its a decent guitar... Ive posted my one before and no one was interested.

 

I keep mine next to where I sit and will pick it up while watching tv or something like that. They are perfect for just mucking around on or traveling.

Never seen one in person, let alone listened to one, but I guess I will have to change that soon.

Dave, what is the length of that guitar?

 

How is re flying and hand luggage rules in Europe?

 

I ask because I have a "Flight" travel guitar which folds and is a headless design with tuners at the rear which I find a devil to use just because it is all the "wrong way round". At least that guitar has it the "right way round".

Dave, thats a really beautiful guitar, travel or otherwise! I got gas already looking at it. The price is right at only 300 too. Coolest practice git eva, does it take batteries? If you could rock it by the campfire that would be the bomb.

Yup... 9v square battery... and it lasts ages...

 

AND even cooler, when the battery does start to die you get the most awesome fuzz sound from it :)
