TRAVELER GARAGE

This is how you raise the bar.

The Traveler Guitar EG-1 Custom (Gloss Black) is a full 24 ¾-inch scale electric travel guitar. Our proprietary In-Body tuning system uses standard tuning machines relocated into the body to create a guitar that has a full-scale neck, yet is substantially shorter than full size electrics. The lack of a headstock and a small, ergonomic body allow the guitar to be 27% shorter and 50% lighter than a full-size electric, all while preserving the same full-scale playing experience you’re used to.

“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!”

- Emerson Swinford - Guitarist for Rod Stewart Band

“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!!!”

- Eric Bass of Shinedown

Active electronics. Plug in. Rock out.

Why it's awesome

The guitar features active electronics with our proprietary 4-channel headphone amplifier built-in, allowing you to practice privately. Cycle through clean, boost, overdrive and distortion tones using the custom tap-pot and listen through your headphones or favorite amp. In addition, the EG-1 Custom includes the Shadow E-tuner, a chromatic tuner built-into the pickup ring always ready to go, so you don't need to carry extra gear. The jackplate has an aux-in so you can plug in your mobile device and play along with your favorite tracks.

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 27% shorter and 50% percent lighter than a comparable full-sized guitar.

Headphone Amplifier

The Traveler Guitar 4-channel headphone amplifier is built in, allowing you to shred at full volume without waking the neighbors. Cycle through clean, boost, overdrive and distortion tones using the custom tap-pot and listen through headphones or plug into your favorite amp. The guitar is also equipped with an aux-in so you can connect your mobile device and play along with your favorite tracks.
