A compact, full-scale acoustic/electric travel guitar.

Redlands, CA (March 31, 2017) -- In 2013, Traveler Guitar introduced their first-ever hollow-body acoustic/electric: the AG-105EQ. This year they’ve added another model to the lineup with the AG-450EQ, featuring a striking sunburst gloss top and dark stained gloss back and sides.

The Traveler Acoustic AG-450EQ is the most compact, full-scale acoustic/electric travel guitar on the market. Traveler Guitar's Streamline Tuning System eliminates the need for a headstock, making the guitar 20% smaller and 36% lighter than full size acoustics, all while preserving the same full-scale playing experience players are used to.

Features:

  • Solid spruce top with mahogany back and sides
  • Custom-designed EQ with built-in tuner and headphone amp
  • 1/8” auxiliary input for private practice with backing tracks
  • Shortest full-scale acoustic travel guitar on the market
  • Overall length 32 ¼” long
  • Uses standard guitar strings
  • Deluxe gig bag included

Traveler Guitar has been the industry’s leading manufacturer of full-scale, travel-sized instruments for 25 years. Their guitars fit in tiny spaces, play with giant sound and feature a variety of tuners, headphone amps, and EQs designed to let you practice, play or record wherever the road takes you.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018.
