Ultra-Light Electric Travel Guitar w/ Gig Bag
The most compact electric guitar by Traveler Guitar
The Ultra-Light Electric is the smallest, lightest full-scale electric travel guitar available.
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 68 percent lighter than a typical full size electric.
Thanks to the Ultra-Light Electric’s high-output dual-rail humbucker and a standard 1/4-inch output, you can plug it directly into your favorite amp or recording device. Since it weighs just over 3 pounds and measures only 28 inches long, you can take the Ultra-Light Electric anywhere. The lap rest is detachable for easy transport, so guitar and bag fit easily in an airline overhead compartment.
The Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Electric is the perfect solution for traveling players unwilling to compromise on scale length, but still looking for the smallest and lightest solution available.
“Full Scale” means the Ultra-Light Electric has the same playing area as a standard guitar, preserving the full-sized playing experience in a much smaller package.
The In-Body Tuning System, minimalistic body, and detachable lap rest make the Ultra-Light extremely portable.
The Ultra-Light Electric is built with a one-piece neck-through-body design and equipped with an adjustable tune-o-matic style bridge and a dual-rail high-output humbucker for huge tone in a compact package.
Take it anywhere
At just 30 inches long and weighing less than 4 pounds in its included gig bag, the Ultra-Light can accompany you anywhere you want to go.

I like to play some 80's and 90's rock and metal, and a little Jimi and Clapton from time to time, but the majority of what I play is either stuff I've written, or guitar-ified versions of video game music. These days I play exclusively into Amplitube or similar software.
I found this this guitar because the wife and I decided to sell everything we own and pair our lives down to two suitcases, and travel the world. So obviously my guitars and thousands of dollars of audio equipment had to go. Naturally I can't live without a guitar, so I had to find something that would fit in our largest 30" suitcase.
So now that you know who I am, let me tell you what I think about the guitar.
First impression on opening this thing is you can't believe how small it really is. Even experienced guitar players ask "What is that?" The novelty value is high. Unfortunately at a local retailer I went to, the Traveler Guitar stand was not very prominent, and none of the employees seemed to think it was more than just a novelty. Intellectually, you know the guitar is only 3 pounds, but that really doesn't prepare you for how light it feels when you get your hands on it. But it's a good, solid light weight, like a baseball bat.Read more ›
Knowing what I do now, I'd probably be better off with the Hotrod version of the Traveler Speedster, as it has an onboard preamp. However, once again I think that particular guitar is priced very high. I purchased a new Steinberger Synapse for about the same price and while they have different purposes, the Steinberger is a true gig-worthy instrument with killer resonance.
Unplugged, the one-piece maple guitar has very little resonance and sounds very tinny. When played aggressively whilst unplugged, it has poor acoustic tone; but the upside is that you can play it softly so as not to disturb those around you. When plugged in, everything changes, and it's no doubt an electric guitar with a hot humbucker. It's tone and power will surprise anyone who hears it, because it's a wolf in sheep's clothing.
* Decent rosewood fretboard, good medium frets, feels Fenderish. Action can get pretty low. Thin neck, radius seems pretty flat. C shape.
* Durable, one piece design. Would have to try pretty hard to break this guitar.
* Versatile with string gauges. I think it came with .09s, but I switched to 12s to try to thicken up the resonance. Now I'm using 10s.
* Play it anywhere -- bedroom, bathroom, outside on trips, etc. Very lightweight and easy to tote around. I bring it with me anywhere I know I'll have to do some waiting.
* Headless design has advantages.
* Removable lap rest
* Simple aesthetics. I like the fact that it almost doesn't look like a guitar. For that reason it doesn't look like a toy.Read more ›
- It is really light, lighter than any full scale guitars on earth, the advantage is it makes you have no excuses of not practicing, it is so cute that you just want to pick it up and start playing when you see it.
- But at the same time, it is way too light to play for real without doing some adjustment by your body, for me, I usually had to lift the neck up while playing chords or solo, it feels annoying at first, but I soon get used to it. I haven't tried but maybe someone can try to add some heavy objects attaching to the body to solve this problem.
- The metal frame for you to play while sitting sounds like a clever idea, but it turns out not work so well. Maybe it is just me having this problem, I tried to play with the frame for some time, and my arm (actually my arm near the shoulder) starts to feel pain. I figured out that though the metal frame compensates the lack of bottom body curve, the arm still lacks the upper guitar body support to rest on. So, try to change your posture a bit in order to practice with this guitar while sitting.
- About the sound of guitar, distortion sound is good enough to play rock/metal music, but I haven't really plugged it in to any amps in studio, just my practice amp. And as some reviewers said, the pickup is a little noisy (but it maybe an advantage to some who just want to make some noise). The clean sound, for me, is unsatisfactory, just barely acceptable.Read more ›
