This Full-scale Bass Takes Up Less Space!

Traveler Guitar's Ultra-Light Bass gives you full-sized acoustic bass guitar sound and feel to go. Easily Traveler Guitar's lightest and most compact bass guitar model to date, the Ultra-Light Bass takes its cues from the rest of the Ultra-Light lineup, offering you both stripped-down portability and comfortable full-scale feel. In fact, despite its compact size, the Ultra-Light Bass still gives you the full 30" scale length you need to play normally. And when you get to hear the massive sound of the onboard Shadow piezo pickup system, you'll discover that the frame is the only small thing about the Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Bass.

  • This axe was made for bass players on the go
  • Ditch the bulk, not the scale length
  • Shadow pickup system delivers huge acoustic bass sound
This axe was made for bass players on the go

When you pick up a Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Bass, your search for the ultimate portable acoustic-style bass guitar is officially over. Your Ultra-Light Bass can easily fit in your luggage, backpack, or the overhead rack on the plane. What's more, it comes with its own custom, low-profile gig bag! And since there's no folding, fussing, or frustrating assembly required, you'll reach your destination ready to rock.

Ditch the bulk, keep the scale length

The Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Bass gives you something that virtually no other travel-friendly bass can promise: real full-scale feel. That's because the Ultra-Light Bass's unique design loses the access bulk of a traditional bass, without cutting down the scale length. That's how Traveler Guitar managed to fit a 30"-scale bass in an instrument that's only 33-3/4" long. And you don't even need to buy special strings!

Shadow pickup system delivers huge acoustic bass sound

Here's probably the hardest thing to wrap your head around about the super-portable Ultra-Light Bass - it sounds huge! That's because Traveler Guitar decided to outfit their Ultra-Light Bass with an impressive Shadow electronics system. This system includes a highly sensitive under-saddle piezo pickup element, which translates the Ultra-Light Bass's natural acoustic resonance into the sound of a full-sized instrument. You won't believe how great this pint-sized bass sounds!

Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Bass 4-string Acoustic-electric Bass Guitar Features:
  • Full-sized bass sound and feel that you can take anywhere
  • Traveler Guitar's lightest (3 lbs.) and most compact (30" x 5-1/2" x 2") bass guitar ever
  • Unique folded string design gives you full 30"-scale bass - no special strings needed!
  • Compact frame packs small enough to travel anywhere
  • A fantastic bass for playing on smaller stages
  • 1-piece Eastern American hard maple body and neck provide enhanced acoustic resonance
  • Shadow Under Saddle piezo electronics system captures full-scale acoustic bass guitar sound
  • Detachable lap rest, thumb rest, and custom gig bag included
Get the full bass sound and feel you need anywhere with a Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Bass from Sweetwater!

Great travel instrument

Just got back from an overseas trip where I brought my traveler bass and I love it. It sounds great, stays tuned, and is very well built. Add a small Vox amp and headphones and you're money! Great buy!

Best Bass to Carry on a Harley

This bass would have got 4-5 stars if there were volume and tone controls on it. Other than that, this little bass has a big sound and a good bright tone, yet bass'y. This bass is incredibly light weight and reminds me of a lightweight and woody version of my Steinberger XL-2.
