The Traveler EG-1 Vintage Gold is a full-scale electric guitar featuring a compact single-cutaway body shape that provides vintage looks and modern comfort to the traveling guitarist. With crown inlays, gold bell knobs, a chrome-covered humbucker with cream pickup ring and its Vintage Gold finish, this travel guitar looks and feels like a travel-sized version of a timeless instrument. In addition, it is the first guitar in Traveler’s EG-1 family to feature a 24-3/4″ scale length.
Weighing in at just 4 pounds and measuring only 28 5/8″ long, the EG-1 electric guitar is an ideal carry-on guitar that stows easily in airline overhead compartments. The EG-1′s built-in Pocket RockIt headphone amp is custom-designed to produce classic clean and distortion sounds through headphones or when plugged into an amplifier. Players can also go passive into their amp of choice. The Traveler EG-1′s onboard electronics include a 1/8″ AUX IN jack so players can jam with tracks from an external device such as an MP3 or CD player.
The Traveler EG-1 also boasts more traditional guitar features such as a mahogany body and neck, ebonized rosewood fretboard, standard strap pins and a fully adjustable truss rod. Includes deluxe gig bag and comes standard with D’Addario EXL-110 strings.
