Traveler Guitar Escape EG-2 Sunburst
January 6, 2011
The people at Traveler Guitar are passionately engaged in shattering old preconceptions of what a travel guitar is. Their latest coup is a hearty slap in the face to the awkward, utilitarian travel instruments of old. In fact, if it didn’t weigh in at a mere 5 lbs. and fit handily in airline overhead compartments, one might not even identify the new Escape EG-2 Sunburst as a travel guitar.
The Traveler Guitar Escape EG-2 is a full 25½”-scale electric guitar featuring a compact double-cutaway body shape, 3-ply pick guard, maple neck & fretboard and a rich, lusty 2-tone sunburst finish which provide vintage looks and modern comfort to the traveling guitarist. At just 29 ½” long, the EG-2 stows easily in airline overhead compartments and weighs less than 5 pounds. Two precision-placed single-coil pickups feed into the EG-2’s built-in Pocket RockIt headphone amplifier, which is custom-designed to produce classic clean and distortion sounds through headphones or when plugged into an amplifier. Players can also go passive into their amp of choice. The EG-2’s onboard electronics include a 1/8” AUX IN jack so players can jam with tracks from an external device such as an mp3 or CD player. Additional controls include Tone & Volume knobs and a 3-way pickup selector.
The Traveler Guitar Escape EG-2 also boasts more traditional guitar features such as an alder body, standard strap pins and a fully adjustable truss rod. Includes Deluxe Gig Bag and comes standard with D’Addario EXL-110 strings.
