(January 8, 2010) -- Traveler Guitar has announced the release of their latest model, the Escape EG-1 Vintage Gold. The guitar is designed for vintage fans looking for a full scale travel instrument that has the same feel as a classic.
The Escape 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 guitar looks and feels like a travel-sized version of a timeless instrument. In addition, it is the first guitar in the EG-1 family to feature a 24 ¾” scale length.
Weighing in at just 4 pounds and measuring only 28 5/8” long, the EG-1 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 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 Escape 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.
