Original Escape Nylon

Compact yet full featured Acoustic-Electric Classical

The Traveler Guitar Original Escape Nylon is a full 25 ½ inch scale travel Acoustic-Electric nylon-string guitar featuring a built-in headphone amp, piezo pickup, and an ergonomic body shape.

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 26% shorter than a typical full size classical.

The Original Escape Nylon’s custom Shadow piezo pickup & EQ system sounds great through headphones or an amplifier, and its compact body shape and full-scale neck have made it one of our most enduring models. Includes gig bag and fits in airline overhead compartments.

  • Alder body with bolt-on maple neck; natural finish
  • Custom Shadow preamp w/headphone out
  • Only 29" long and 3 lbs. 14 oz.
