This is how you break the mold.

The Traveler Guitar Speedster Hot Rod is a full 24 ¾-inch scale travel guitar featuring a custom Headphone Amplifier with 4 different tones, a dual-rail humbucker and a coil-split switch.

“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.”

A Modern-Retro Electric

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 custom 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 custom 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% lighter than a typical full-sized electric guitar.
