Redlands, CA (August 31, 2011) -- The Traveler Guitar EG-2 is a full 25 1/2”-scale electric guitar featuring a compact double-cutaway body shape, 3-ply pick guard, maple neck & fretboard and a classic black finish with white pickup covers. At just 29 1/2” long, the EG-2 stows easily in airline overhead compartments and weighs less than 5 pounds. Two precision-placed single-coil pickups feed into the EG-2’s built-in Pocket RockIt headphone amplifier, which 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-2’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. Additional controls include Tone & Volume knobs and a 3-way pickup selector.

The Traveler Guitar EG-2 also boasts more traditional guitar features such as an alder body, standard strap pins and a fully adjustable truss rod. Includes Deluxe Gig Bag and comes standard with D’Addario EXL-110 strings. Street Price: $469.99.
