Thread: Looking for "travel" 6-string A/E

  1. #11
    The best travel guitar I've had was a Composite Acoustics Cargo Raw. 22' scale, fits in an overhead bin on a plane, and sounds and plays better than any travel guitar I've tried. Highly recommended!

    Heck I cruise it just to look at "stuff", like Inner Mongolia and Siberia's arctic coastline...

    And then there is GEOGUESSR - https://geoguessr.com/ -

    It s based on Google street view - you will be somewhere on the Earth - you can move like in street view - you have to find out where you are on this planet - The Kid had it in school - closet I ever got in somewhere in Russia was within 30cm - about one foot. You can spend hours with that. And it is free.

    At that price point, I really like the Martin D Jr-10E. I got lucky and picked up a new one at 40% off from a local store going out of business and it replaced my GAD F-20

    Coug, I know you're familiar with the Epiphone line. In 2016, I purchased a new all-mahogany (natural, not sunburst) EL-00 Pro for around $250 on sale. Having just retired, the goal was to have a super low investment guitar to throw in a vehicle while traveling. Solid mahogany top, laminated mahogany sides & back, short-scale neck, 15" lower bout, very compact size overall.

    So fwiw, after a few small personalizing tweaks, the darn thing has turned into a little sweetheart of a guitar. Made in Samick's Indonesian factory, it's a well-built, nice sounding, and super cheap acoustic you wouldn't be afraid to leave in the car while on the road.

    When I was on the hunt for a slightly smaller guitar, I tried out Alvarez, Yamaha, Epiphone, Guild, Ibanez, Taylor, Martin and several brands that I don't remember.
    When it was all said and done, the one that did it for me was a Washburn Grand Auditorium.
    It has a nice pick up with built in tuner.
    I don't like cutaway guitars and this one doesn't have that going on.

    The tone and projection is far above it's price of under $400.00. Case extra.

    Not only does it sound great, it looks great.

    My travel guitar is a cheap, beat up Yamaha that sounds way better than it should for $100. I bring it boating, camping, beaching, it sometimes gets tossed in the car for a ski trip, etc.
