Great value, a real guitar at toy pricing
Bud L., 29.12.2018
I was pleasantly surprised by this little guitar. I bought it basically on a whim, since I already had shipping paid for with another guitar. For the money I figured it was worth the gamble. This is a solid little guitar. Out of the box it was nearly in tune and the action was a little high, but not too bad. The fretboard is a little dry and there is some minor fret sprout, but I've definitely seen worse on much more expensive guitars. It's an easy fix. The tuners are okay, nothing fancy but they work and seem pretty stable. Otherwise, it is a really well built instrument and is a perfect guitar for travel, practice at the office, campfires, kids, etc... It's a small body guitar with small body sound but for what it is it sounds pretty good. Definitely better than some of the full size "student" instruments I've tried at music shops. If you already have an order at Thomann you might as well throw one of these in as well since the shipping is paid for. It's absolutely worth the price if you're comfortable fixing minor issues yourself. I wouldn't buy one of these and pay to have a tech fix it, that seems like a waste of money. But again, if you can use a nail file on the frets and some lemon oil on the fretboard, that's about all you'll need to do.

Nice Traveler Acoustic Guitar
Michael Y., 31.08.2015
When I thought about a Traveler Guitar I did my research. Small guitar the size of this charming Mini DS-10 it have been used by famous guitar players in the world such as Sting, Dave Matthews, Ed Sheeran, Lindsey Buckingham, Richard Durrant etc. Besides the price was so tempting and unbeatable, it would have been silly no to get one for just a try. The guitar is very practical for transportation. Considering the size of it body, the guitar has a very pleasant, mellow and peculiar sound in comparison with the "Harley Benton Traveler-E-Steel", which is even smaller. It is similar size of the Baby Taylor however 4 times less expensive. I confess I did personal adjustments such as I lower the guitar Saddle (Bridge) and the guitar Nut, I also adjusted the neck. I made all of these changing in order to obtain the lower action possible and have a great playability smooth as butter. I liked the guitar and I began to use it since then. I wish the guitar would have install an internal Pickup. The guitar comes with a gig-bag that I wish would had a better cushioning to protect the instrument and it will be a bit bigger. Nevertheless I enjoy the guitar. The intonation is not that accurate. If I recommend it? Yes, I recommend it. I wanted to have a Traveler Acoustic Guitar now I have it, I can NOT complain for the prize I paid.
