This guitar has exceeded my expectations. The sound is exactly what I wanted. Rich bass and crisp treble can be dialed in to suit headphones or my portable speaker. It is lightweight and compact yet durable enough to survive daily travel.

Traveler Guitar Escape Mark III

I've never ordered a guitar "online" without playing it first, but I trust Sweetwater implicitly. I needed a guitar to take on an overseas trip. I traveled light and did not wish to check any luggage. So, I carried a roll-on suitcase and the Traveler guitar. No hassles from the flight attendants, although the ladies on my flight to Israel wanted to play it! It plays well and sounds very nice through an amp. I may do a "set up " in the future but it is very acceptable the way it plays right out of the box. Your neighbors won't hear it without an amp, so it's perfect for practicing in a hotel room. Plus, as others have said, you can stuff lots of socks and t-shirts in the gig bag! I've already played it for a gig or two through big amps. It's quite a conversation-starter! I've had to get used to the tuning - just pay attention to the in-body keys. But I'm almost used to it now! What'll they think of next? Thanks, Sweetwater!

Love it

I had an ultra-light for years. Starting doing gigs with friends at BBQs etc and using that my Roland CUBE made for an awesome portable rig. Trouble was I was getting tired of the awkward playing position with the ultra-light, and having to fiddle with the metal leg support and have a separate headphone jack was getting old. Found this guy and don't think I've ever made a faster purchase. It is exactly what I hoped, too. As comfortable to play as my strat, great neck, great balance and weight. Love the built-in headphone amp -- which really sounds awesome. Still tinkering to get a rounded acoustic sound from it and the CUBE -- at the end of the day, it's not going to give you a rich full acoustic sound, but if you aren't expecting that then you'll be very happy, if that makes any sense. Overall, totally in love. Beautiful workmanship and wood grain. Hah, the only thing I like better about the ultra-light is that I can carry it to work and no one knows what it is. Despite the diminutive profile, people call me out right away with this guy.

Great in the car

I haven't actually traveled with it yet, but sometimes I have to sit in the car for extended periods. It's a little weird at first not having a headstock but I can actually play it fine sitting in the drivers seat. The thing plugs into the aux input on my car stereo so I have surround sound too and it sounds pretty darn good! Run some backing tracks from the smartphone and you're rocking out! It's also nice when I m home and if it's leaning against the wall it doesn't get knocked out of tune because the pegs are buried in the body. It looks awesome, plays well, and I'm very happy with it. With some headphones attached I can play late at night and not irritate mama. You add effects with a little VOX plug in. Great design, perfect for me. Sweetwater service is also exemplary. Thanks!

Great travel guitar

The Traveler Escape Mark iii is a wonderful guitar for travel. It fits well in the overhead with no hassle from the attendants. You can play it anywhere through headphones since it is practically silent and the best feature is the ability to play along with the aux input. It is rugged and very well built. I could not be happier.
