Why it's awesome
With its unique modern-retro look and detachable tear-drop arm support, the Speedster represents a design revolution in travel guitars. The Speedster is built for portability and performance with its neck-through-body design and standard volume and tone controls.
The dual-rail humbucker has a coil-split switch which allows for even more sonic versatility by giving you humbucker gain or single coil clean all in one pickup.
A headphone amp built-in
The guitar features active electronics with our V2 headphone amplifier built-in, allowing you to practice privately. Plug in headphones or your favorite amp and cycle through clean, boost, overdrive and distortion tones using the custom tap-pot. In addition, the Speedster Hot Rod's V2 Headphone Amp is loaded with an aux-in jack so you can play along with your favorite tracks while listening through headphones or your favorite amp.
In-Body Tuning System™
Traveler’s 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% shorter and 51% percent lighter than a typical full-sized electric guitar.
The Traveler Guitar Speedster Hot Rod is the perfect solution for traveling players looking for a modern looking guitar that’s compact and comfortable. Fits easily in airline overhead compartments in the included Deluxe Gig Bag.
