After 21 years of leading the industry in the design of solid-body, full-scale travel guitars, Traveler Guitar introduces their first-ever hollow-body acoustic/electric: the Traveler Acoustic AG-105EQ.
“There are a lot of acoustic travel guitars out there,” says Traveler Guitar president J. Corey Oliver, “but most of them are short-scale. That’s far from ideal if you’re trying to keep up your chops while you’re out of town on business, or recording a demo in your hotel room. There are a few full-scale solutions out there—but they sacrifice portability. So, in the end, you’re still lugging around a full-sized guitar; it’s just packed differently.”
Traveler Guitar’s new acoustic offering, however, fits a full-scale playing experience into a package that is shorter in total length than the industry’s leading short-scale travel acoustics. This boon is made possible by Traveler Guitar’s new Streamline™ Tuning System, which incorporates a headless design with locking string retainers at the nut and a right-hand tuning system mounted to the endblock.
In addition to its full-scale status, the AG-105EQ boasts a custom-designed EQ with a built-in tuner and headphone amp. The on-board electronics also include a 1/8” auxiliary input so that players can jam along with music from their mobile device, or even use the guitar to pipe the tracks into a PA for performance.
“Our mission hasn’t changed,” adds Oliver. “We’re committed to providing mobile musicians with the highest quality, most innovative, most portable full-scale instruments possible.”
Traveler Guitar is the industry’s leading manufacturer of full-scale travel-sized instruments. Since 1992, the Redlands, California-based company has been an innovator in the design and marketing of electric and acoustic-electric travel guitars, offering a wide variety of solutions for the traveling player.AG-105EQ
