More than just a travel guitar
I travel frequently and wanted a small guitar that was easy to carry. My Martin backpack was ok, but the tone wasn't great and it was just a little too big. This is only 28" long and the tone is great. Without an amp, it sounds like an unplugged electric. This is fine for practice and this has made it my go to guitar for daily practice, both on the road and at home. I can practice while my wife watches tv without disturbing her. When plugged in the sound is great. I use my Fender amp directly as well as a Vox pre-amp to go to a small speaker or headphones. The removable lap support is ok, but I found that it slipped too much. I fixed this by using a strap which works great by itself. The price seemed a little high, but it is a high quality instrument. I also love the service I get from Sweetwater, no one else comes close.
