A must-have for traveling by plane

Traveler Guitar Pro-SeriesPublished on 01/23/16 at 04:08
I bought this guitar to travel by plane.
Before that, I used to take my nylon-stringed Yamaha APXT 1N which was perfect (except for its shorter scale), and plugged it on a Marshall MS2 microamp through a pocket multi-effect Korg Pandora PX3. This set has traveled the whole world with me! But now, it's become almost impossible to take the plane with an instrument that exceeds the hand luggage format - or it's taking the risk to lose it and arrive without an instrument at all.

The traveler Pro can be checked-in at the airport (70cm long), that's the main reason why I bought it.
It features Fender-standard scale. It's a great neck-through guitar, except for the fact the neck has nothing to......

I bought this guitar to travel by plane.
Before that, I used to take my nylon-stringed Yamaha APXT 1N which was perfect (except for its shorter scale), and plugged it on a Marshall MS2 microamp through a pocket multi-effect Korg Pandora PX3. This set has traveled the whole world with me! But now, it's become almost impossible to take the plane with an instrument that exceeds the hand luggage format - or it's taking the risk to lose it and arrive without an instrument at all.

The traveler Pro can be checked-in at the airport (70cm long), that's the main reason why I bought it.
It features Fender-standard scale. It's a great neck-through guitar, except for the fact the neck has nothing to get through. The neck is made of maple and features 22 frets on a mahogany fretboard. I chose the version with both a piezo pickup and a single coil pickup.

The system is well-conceived and sturdy, and it comes with a softcase. The included earbuds work fine (no need for batteries) but are not pleasant to wear, I prefer to get through a plug Vox (eg the classic rock one) or my Kork multifx and use standard earphones - but it takes batteries.

The neck is fast, its touch is pleasant and intonation is accurate. The guitar came properly set up: string height and neck setting.

The piezo is OK, but I changed the magnetic pickup for is was way less powerful and lacked punch. I first put a Di Marzio red velvet (strat bridge format), very powerful, great for country music. The pickup was easy to change, take your solder iron and it's over in 10 minutes at most.
Like all maple guitars, its sound is cristal-clean (no tone setting or neck pickup - and no room for either btw). It's not easy to get a jazz sound, but in lowering the sound from the magnetic pickup you can tame the trebles a little. I finally put my G&L Legacy's bridge pickup on it, which sounds quite soft: the result is better. Perhaps changing the strings might help? I play with 10-46s.

The guitar is difficult to hold, so it's better to use it with a strap (it has strap buttons) - or to get used to it. It can easily be used in a band.

To conclude, that's the kind of purchase I'd do again willingly, I take it everywhere with me and even use it in the train or car (not when driving of course, but during long travels). Yet, the price is excessively high, it's made in China (granted, the finish is perfect and materials are ok), but the magnetic pickup had to be changed. Its rarity (it took me 6 weeks to receive it) and patents influence its cost.
The strings are not easy to fine tune, the tuners are not to blame but that's quite unusual.

SOUNDS

This instrument is perfectly suited my approach. I played on an Alesis Transactive actuellemnt 50, through a Boss Micro BR, and works with all cohrence like a subtle soundscape.

I also tested on a Fender Hot Rod, that in a normal environment: no effect other than SETTING THE amp the sound palette is very broad. By adding the usual effects pedals as limits or operates The characteristics of the guitar with a lot of freedom.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this guitar for a few weeks. The appearance of the object and call its ergonomics play other than on a guitar design or dat format for a style, which does not exclude a wide versatility. I am satisfied with the del-of that I hope. I acquired it without trying, without Getting to know the existence of the mark Traveler APRS an Internet search. The report is excellent qualitprix (389). I'm trying to acqurir other instruments Traveler range, especially low MODEL Escape which has just been replaced by the new Escape MKII, and I do not for moment find succeded.

Translation of that final sentence: I want a low acqurir Traveler Escape "Discontinued" ... Please contact me if you have a track to find one!
