Markus8559, 21.06.2015
Da ich in letzter Zeit wieder mal öfter mit dem Flugzeug unterwegs war, musste eine Gitarre her, die ich im Koffer mitnehmen konnte. Auf Autoreisen hatte ich bisher immer eine Epiphon Semiakustik dabei.
Ich habe mir 5 verschiedene Modelle angesehen und probegespielt. Wie es halt so ist, jede hat ihre Stärken und Schwächen, die für mich perfekte eierlegende Wollmilchsau gibt es wohl nicht. Die Escape kam in der Summe meinen Vorstellungen letztendlich dann doch am nächsten.
Irgendwelche Klapp- oder Zerleg-Lösungen schieden für mich ziemlich schnell aus, weil ich die Gitarre schnell mal zur Hand nehmen können will, ohne erst (wenn auch nicht viel) basteln zu müssen. Blieben in der engeren Auswahl also die Escape, die Ultra Light NAT Steel und die EG-1 Custom, alle drei von Traveller Guitars.

Nun zu meiner Beurteilung der Escape:
Sehr sehr gut finde ich die Verarbeitung und die wirklich kompakten Abmessungen bei originaler Mensur und Sattelbreite. Auch die Stimmstabilität finde ich beeindruckend. Ich habe die Gitarre in Deutschland in den Koffer gepackt, bin am nächsten Tag nach Griechenland in Urlaub geflogen, habe sie abends im Hotel ausgepackt und ich musste nichts nachstimmen. Unglaublich!

Richtig gut finde ich auch den Sound über den integrierten Kopfhörerverstärker oder auch komplett unverstärkt (die ideale Lösung für abendliche Sessions auf der Hotelterrasse), sowie am Amp (Fender Deluxe Reverb). Für die Bauart wirklich erstaunlich. Auch wenn die EG-1 da noch eine Klasse besser ist, was angesichts Mahagoni Korpus und Humbucker Pickup auch kein Wunder ist. Über Kopfhörer kann man die EG-1 dagegen aber vergessen. Da ist die Escape um Welten besser.

Nicht ganz so toll ist die Bespielbarkeit ohne Gurt. Da sie doch sehr kopflastig ist, kann man praktisch nur mit Gurt schwierigere Sachen üben. Gemütlich auf dem Sofa rumlümmeln und irgendwelche perfekt beherrschte Songs runterschrubben geht natürlich problemlos.
Ebenfalls nicht optimal ist die Platzierung der Buchse zum Anschluss von Kopfhörer oder Amp. Irgendwie kommen sich bei mir immer wieder mal Stecker und Oberschenkel in die Wege. Je nachdem wie man gerade sitzt und die Gitarre hält.

Richtig schlecht finde ich eigentlich nur 2 Sachen, wovon eine ganz einfach zu beheben ist: Die Befestigung des Riemens am Kopf ist ein Kabelbinder, der so ungeschickt angebracht und scharfkantig ist, dass man sich den Zeigefinger aufschneidet wenn man am ersten Bund spielt. Ein schneller Schnitt und das Teil mitsamt seinem Problem ist weg. Ich brauche den Riemen ohnehin nicht. Und falls doch, braucht man den Kabelbinder nur andersrum montieren und schon ist das Problem entschärft.
Das zweite Problem ist sicherlich individuell und von der Körperstatur abhängig, für mich aber der einzige wirkliche Kritikpunkt. Der Lautstärkeregler für den integrierten Verstärker ist auf der Oberseite des Korpus, so weit am Rand zum Körper und so leichtgängig, so dass man ihn immer wieder mal unbeabsichtigt verstellt wenn man sich bei komplizierten Griffen über die Gitarre krampft. Ich tröste mich damit darüber hinweg, dass es die Motivation fördert entspannter zu spielen ;-)

Aber wie gesagt, in Summe ist die Escape für mich der beste Kompromiss mit dem für mich und meine Ansprüche besten Preis/Leistungsverhältnis.

Was können andere besser/schlechter?
Wie gesagt ist der Sound der EG-1 über den Amp oder unverstärkt besser, aber nicht über den Kopfhörer. Auch ist sie nicht so kopflastig und damit bequemer zu spielen. Dafür ist sie deutlich teurer, schwerer (kritisch im Flugzeug!) und für mich entscheidende 2cm länger, so dass ich sie in meinen Koffer nur mehr ohne Gigbag rein bekommen würde.
Die NAT Steel ist ausgeschieden, weil sie zwar billiger ist, aber dafür nicht so gut klingt, keinen eingebauten Kopfhörerverstärker hat aber genauso kopflastig ist wie die Escape.

Ich habe meine Entscheidung bis heute jedenfalls nicht bereut, und freue mich darüber, jetzt eine "immer-dabei-hab-Gitarre" zu haben, die wirklich Spaß macht und aufgrund der Original Mensur ein vernünftiges und sinnvolles Üben erlaubt.

handlich, praktisch und gut.

Über den aktiven Shadow PU hat man einen relativ guten Klang. Die Ansprache ist sehr direkt. Der Korpus könnte wie bei der Escape MK II etwas weiter nach oben gezogen sein, geht aber.

Leider ist die MK II aktuell nicht mehr im lieferbar.

Für das ruhige Üben ein schönes Stück...

John I., 30.10.2014
I bought this guitar as a travel guitar but now despite many other guitars this has become my guitar of choice for all occasions. The sound is just like a full size acoustic guitar whether played through a pa or the headphones. In its padded case it fits easily into the overhead bins on aircraft or if sitting in a window seat down by the side. The workmanship is very good as is its pre amp and tuner. I also bought the fender passport mini for use while travelling with this guitar and the combination work really well together with a big sound for only 7 watts whether on mains or battery power. I have purchase many times from Thomann and they are great on service and delivery
