Pro-Series Acoustic and Electric Travel Guitar w/ Gig Bag
A Hybrid Acoustic and Electric Travel guitar
The Pro-Series represents Traveler Guitar’s original production model and remains a standard of innovation and design for travel guitars. The proprietary In-Body Tuning System uses standard tuning machines relocated into the body, eliminating the need for a headstock. As a result, you’ll have the same full-scale playing experience you’re used to on an instrument that’s 28 percent shorter and 64 percent lighter than a typical full size electric.
If you have ever wanted to have both an acoustic and electric guitar in one, the Pro-Series is for you. It features a custom piezo pickup (like standard acoustic/acoustic electric guitars) and a single-coil electric pickup, so you can play a breadth of tones and styles with just one instrument. The 24 ¾-inch scale neck-through body sounds great through acoustic and electric amplifiers, or through its unique internal resonant pickup system with the included stethophone headset, which allows for private listening without batteries or an amp. The lap rest is detachable for easy transport, so guitar and bag fit easily in an airline overhead compartment.
'Full Scale' means the Pro-Series has the same playing area as a standard guitar, preserving the full-sized playing experience in a much smaller package.
Acoustic & Electric Pickups
Get great electric and acoustic tones out of one guitar. Plug into the amp of your choice, or connect the included Stethophone Headset for a private listening experience with no batteries required.
The In-Body Tuning System, minimalistic body, and detachable lap rest make the Pro-Series extremely portable.
Take it anywhere
At just 30 inches long and weighing less than 4 ½ pounds in its included gig bag, the Pro-Series can accompany you anywhere you want to go.

The ergonomics take a minute to get used to, but once you do, you'll find yourself grabbing this rather than a full-size guitar when reclining on the couch and noodling around (or at least I do). Works best with a properly adjusted guitar strap. I've had no problem traveling with this guitar in overhead compartments on planes, and it will even fit inside a large suitcase if you'd like to check it instead of carrying it on.
I placed a piece of thick tape between where the lap-rest connects to the body just to take out some of the play that I found annoying where they come together. It feels relatively durable, and the build quality is excellent, but I'd not be too rough with it. I plan to replace the tuners with the newer locking tuners that Traveler now offers which will make restringing much, much easier.
Traveler calls this an acoustic guitar, and they provide acoustic strings for feel and plugged in tone, but unplugged it makes no more sound than an unplugged electric would (maybe less, actually). The included stethophone is cool but no replacement for the sound of a real acoustic, and not particularly loud. Works best for practicing quietly in conjunction with a guitar headphone amp (VOX AP2AC amPlug AC30 G2), or running it through your iPhone or iPad using Apogee Jam or an iRig.
- The sound is really bad. The pickups are really really really noisy and have no range at all. The volume dials only function as "0 volume" and "ALL VOLUME!" switches.
- After the first month, a crack appeared right where tou screw the bottom part because of the constant pressure applied to it while playing it seated.
- It gets untuned A LOT. I need to be careful with bending and that sucks when you mainly play rock and blues.
- The switch to change pickups sometimes fails and doesn't "turn on" the pickup, so the sound goes away and you have to "switch again".
- Setting a strap into the included bolts (used for screwing the bottom piece" is really hard. They're too big, although that might just be because they have a good size for screwing/unscrewing.
All in all it is a good "travel fix" but if you're gonna be stationary, get a real guitar.
- untune all the time, and it's not easy to tune (i have boss tuner on the iphone and a dadario arm tunner, both has problems.
- its gear is so strange it produces basically strange songs.
- if you put any guitar strings (i'm using .09 light now) and start bending, it untune in just one song.
- the playing position is to up to the chest, not low as any regular guitarrs, it taks a little to get used but just after when you move to a regular one (acoustic or electric) you need to get used again.
I travel a lot and since I was a begginer when I bought it, it helped me to practice finger movements and chords, but that was it. not worth the price.
