    Update on My Review

    A standard HOSA 1/8" to 1/4" TRS cable, put the guitar in headphone mode, and then plug it into a battery powered MP3/phone/Bluetooth speaker system (I'm using an Altec inMotion Air) and you've got a great sounding no AC (just like an acoustic guitar) set up loud enough for any jam session and better sounding than my Roland Mobile Cube. I'm giving some thought to a Bose Soundlink II which will fit in the gigbag's pocket.

    Perfect Air Travel Guitar

    It sounds better than I hoped as a quiet practice guitar, and pretty good through an amp if you add a bit of reverb. Direct to headphones works fine but is too dry sounding for me. The body is just large enough to play seated comfortably and the size in its gig bag will certainly fit even in a full overhead bin. As set-up by the factory with extra lights (10s) its intonation is absolutely perfect (a surprise given the not compensated saddle and the saddle's tilted orientation to accommodate the back side tuners) and it tunes more smoothly than my Gibson SG. I would put 12s on it but I don't want to "fix" something that is so clearly not broken... I've ordered a Roland Mobile Cube which I think can fit inside a suit case to go with it.

    Great Deal

    Since I spend a lot of time in hotel rooms this is just what I needed to stay quiet and personal using headphones to hear myself play. This is a good quality piece. Using better headphones (I use Sennheiser HD280 Pro) gives a much better sound. I have to turn down the strong bass though to get more balanced sound. Too bad they don't have more than just bass and treble controls. The guitar size takes some getting used to as does the extra light strings. The full scale neck gives me more frets than my standard size acoustic guitars. Putting my Tascam portable recorder inline between the guitar and headphones works great too. It's worth every penny. What's not to like?
