I am very pleased with the guitar. It has a clever design feature with the tuners 'inside' the body and packs for travel very well. It has a standard 24 3/4" scale length with a good neck and fret board, it feels like a real guitar. It is also great as a practice instrument, easy to pick up/put down and for learning new material.
Two disadvantages: changing strings is a more difficult than on a normal guitar with tuners at the end of the neck, and because of the very small body, at first it can be difficult to hold. I tried a strap fixed to the strap buttons, but the neck still kept wanting to drop down. The solution was to tie the strap to the leather loop at the end of the neck. Then it is nice and well balanced.
Unfortunately there was an error. Please try again later.
You probably buy a guitar of this kind only for one reason: because you would like to take it straight away (in the car, train, airplane, etc.) to be able to practice on the road, in the hotel, on the meadow, etc.
First and foremost, size plays a role. And here it is obviously unbeatable, smaller you can hardly build a serious guitar (and that is it).
At the supposedly high price, however, one is initially stutzig and wonders whether the quality can really keep up. She can! The processing is absolutely perfect. Everything sits flush, everything feels good, is stable and thought-through. I've just written, she feels good. And that's what I mean. It is a pleasure to hold this small, neat instrument in your hands. Have I already said that she feels good? As shown in Fig.
I have tested them with a chromatic tuner on all sides across the frets and I was surprised: it is absolutely bandrein!
The sound: Well, he's piezo-like. But: he likes me. Sounds like Western guitar! So, as it should sound. The basses are not quite as fat as a large acoustic guitar. But the sound is coherent.
What could be criticized? Not much. At the price you would only want a volume regulator, so that one can adjust during the game times without having to grab the amp or the mixer. In addition, the small bag is quite passable, but it is missing a proper padding and the rice closure is not covered inside, so I fear that the small could get it from scratches. Maybe just slip into a lint-free cloth before it comes into your pocket ?!
The lack of sound control is not a real criticism, since the basic sound is already neat. The rest can be controlled via the amp or mixer.
And the haptics: I find them great. I usually play Strat or Tele. A change to the Traveler is not necessary.
I can only sympathize with the fact that the guitar is a bit copious, (Ne Höfner Shorty, which is copflastig, hui!). If the Traveler is placed in the seat (with bracket) on the leg, this is negligible. If you play them standing with guitar strap, I would not attach the belt stop to the half-sided screw on the body, but at the top in the area of ??the cable picture. With this she is tidy and straight.
I can recommend it absolutely absolutist, if you are looking for something really really tiny, but what can be played reasonably and also sounds neat.
