A Travel Guitar for Picky PickersWhat's full-scale, has two single-coil pickups, a built-in headphone amp/preamp - and a teensy postage stamp of a body? Give up? OK, it's the Traveler Escape EG-2 electric travel guitar. If you've looked at travel guitars in the past, you've probably noted the compromises you'd have to make in exchange for ultra-portability. Well, Traveler has changed the game with full-featured 25.5" scale guitars that pack all the modern conveniences you expect in a full-sized axe.
With its traditional double-cutaway alder body, maple neck, 3-ply pickguard, and a pair of single-coil pickups, the Escape EG-2 gives you the sound & styling of your favorite guitar. In a rad bit of design, the tailpiece "rolls" the strings to the back of the body, delivering them to the tuning machines. A maple fingerboard makes for slick playability, while an onboard Pocket Rock-It preamp (with distortion and an aux-in jack) provides modern functionality - so you can practice with just a pair of headphones. Plug into your amp, and you get fire-breathing performance from your pint-sized axe.
This little axe is amazingly cool. If you're a picky picker on the road a lot, check out the Traveler Escape EG-2.
