The Carruthers Touch
In early 2006 Traveler Guitar was busy at work updating the Escape line for 2007 when their engineer suggested they make contact with the internationally recognized guitar builder John Carruthers for some design input. An immediate friendship between John and Traveler Guitar blossomed and the end result is a completely updated line of beautiful and sophisticated instruments which exemplify Traveler Guitar's ingenuity and John Carruthers' attention to detail and extraordinary eye for beauty.

This little guitar is very well built for the price and is light and confortable, the stock Humbucker and the nut are the only two things i had to change to improve the sound. the built-in Pocket RockIt headphone amp is grate, it sounds better than others headphone amps like those VOX amplugs...Some people have complaint about the tuning keys and the bridge, but i have not had any problems with that, the guitar stays in tune like any other "normal" guitar at that price range.. this is one of the best traveler guitar i have played, I give it 5 stars
