They've been everywhere man!
“I love the EG-1! It’s lightweight/compact, yet it’s a full-scale quality instrument. The tuning machines, electronics, the feel of the neck, the fret work, the fit and finish…all astonishing!”
“My newest device, it’s a travel guitar, that I got at Guitar Center. It’s an electric guitar, because I’m learning to play the blues. And it’s light weight. And you just plug it into your Bose headspeakers, […] and it sounds like you’re playing through an amp.”
Position: Lead Vocals & Guitar
Guitar: Escape Classical
“For almost a decade, my Traveler Guitar has gone where I go. With its perfectly replicated neck, it doesn’t take long to lose myself in it just like I would an actual Acoustic. And what a breeze on airplanes! I find myself hoping my inquisitive friends at the TSA flag it. Gives me a chance to pull it out and play it for them right there in Security. They still pat me down, but at least they’re entertained.”
“The Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light rocks! It’s like a Swiss Army Knife for guitarists- take it with you wherever you go!”
“Having a traveler guitar is the next best thing to having your main guitar when you can’t take it with you. Whether you are a guitar hobbyist or a seasoned professional, a Traveler Guitar is a great tool to have for anyone who travels or needs to be away from home. My EG-1 is great to have with me when I’m on the road.”
“They have created an instrument that makes traveling a dream —rather than the usual nightmare when on the road, flying, or using public transportation. Although what I most like about it is something that goes beyond those features; the bass is exceptionally comfortable and it feels great on my hands, and for its reduced size it has a surprisingly gorgeous tone, huge and clear-sounding.
In the past few months I have played my TB-4P Bass in 3 recording sessions and numerous live performances. It keeps impressing bass players and musicians in general, as well as sound engineers.
This bass is the perfect equation for sound, playability and successful travels.”
“22 years of globe trotting with my band means some very tired crew members. I love not having to bother my tech and ask him to bring me my Warwick or Fender Bass to practice on before the show. I just grab my Traveler which I “carry on” my flights, NICE!! Tiny little thing, but sounds HEAVY in the cans and on stage. Love it! Love it! Love it!”
“As a musician in a band that is on the road 300 days a year, I can depend on my Traveler EG-1 to aid my creativity. But as a producer, engineer, and songwriter who is on the road that much, I have to be able to rely on it to give me the tones I want on my recordings. It never lets me down. I have recorded many internationally released hits using my EG-1. I love it!!!”
“I love having my bass backstage and on the bus. So much easier to go through songs and warm up before the show. Makes plane travel a lot easier too! Playability and sound are great! Thanks Traveler!”
“Because of my touring schedule and all the different artists I’m with, I’m always on the road. And even though you’re working and your playing everyday (that is your job), it’s really hard to keep up your chops during the day. Something like is is exactly what I needed, that can go in the tour bus in the little gig bag. And I can wake up and start warming up. You know all my drills and little exercises…”
“These guitars are so amazing to play. On stage, to take up a mountain, to do whatever with. The search for the perfect traveling guitar was endless for me, and I finally found these and I’m super psyched about it.”
“This thing plays really sweet and is perfect for lugging around!”
“I use my Traveler Guitar on the road with the Zac Brown Band as a practive instrument. I’ve used it in vocal warm-ups for several years now. It’s very reliable, it always sounds good.”

Guitarist for the Zac Brown Band
“My Escape EG-1 Traveler Guitar pretty much does not leave my side! It comes with me everywhere, planes, busses, hotel rooms, studios and my home. Its finally nice to have a great sounding, reliable instrument which isn’t big, bulky and awkward to travel the world with. If it wasnt for my traveler, writing the majority of my music on tour would almost be impossible!”
“Never leave for a gig without my Traveler Bass Guitar. It’s portable, light and good looking! I recommend it, 100% “
“The Traveler Speedster is such a great-feeling guitar we have two on the bus and one in the dressing room at all times. It’s the prefect warm up tool.”
“My Traveler Hot Rod guitar is totally smoking. I’m not an accomplished guitarist. I mainly write and demo songs on guitar; mostly rhythm parts and some simple leads. The Traveler guitar has a wide variety of tones for funk rhythms and ballads and when I need to do a crunch part with a fat distortion this guitar is totally happening for all of it. It’s small but mighty!!!! Handy and completely professional. I couldn’t be happier.”
“Traveler Guitars have made life as a touring musician so much easier. No need to carry big cases or practice amps into the dressing room, spare guitars taking up space in the bus or in an airplane. Now, with my Traveler Guitar, it is so easy with warming up before the gig, practicing in the bus, rehearsing, writing or recording on tour. The perfect solution is only an arm’s length away.”
“Just had to let you know that I am finishing up a new album, and I cut one of the songs on The Traveler Guitar TB-4P Bass. The song is titled “I’mma Pilgrim” and I just had to let you know that the Traveler enabled me to go from the alley to the delta as I played the blues!”
‘The only difference between my TB-4P and the best bases in the world is that I can take it anywhere, anytime.’
“I am absolutely loving my TB-4P. I can’t tell you how much more fun this has made my touring life 🙂 I had to learn a new Heart song the other day and plugged my iPhone straight into the aux input and used my headphones- it was killa man!”
“Thanks to Traveler Guitar for my new Olympic Axe!”
Writer and performer of the mega-hits “Key Largo” and “Casablanca,” Bertie uses his EG-1 Custom and Escape MK-II Guitars in concerts around the world.
“My EG-1 is packed with full-size guitar features like a full-scale neck and it fits in my luggage (No more battling with flight attendants about putting my gig bag in the overheads when I fly..)…I plugged mine into my stage rig the other day and everyone was blown away at how it sounded..I’ll definitely be using mine when I do last minute jams..what’s not to love about this guitar???”
