Compact guitar for traveling
Being able to bring your guitar with you if you travel regularly is a great advantage. It allows you to keep your skills up while you’re away as well as relax at the end of a long day. One option is to take a regular guitar with you, but that's not practical if you don't have a car. You can take a full-size guitar with you when traveling by train or plane, but the disadvantage is the added cost of luggage, the possibility of damage, and the constant hassle. If you do not like the idea of taking a regular guitar with you, an alternative option is to buy a travel guitar – it is designed for travel. They are compact and at the same time give the feel of a full-size guitar.
Types of travel guitars
There are several different types of guitars for travel. You have a choice between electric or acoustic, as well as a choice of portability. Some travel guitars offer full-length necks. By reducing the size of the guitar body, the neck can remain the same. This is a good option if you are willing to sacrifice some portability. The advantage here is that it looks like a regular guitar. Some travel guitars use a smaller neck to reduce the size of the instrument. They feel very different from the usual ones. Some guitarists are happy with these necks, while others hate them. If you like to play at night – you need an electric or silent travel guitar. With headphones on, you can play in the middle of the night and no one will hear you. These guitars are usually more portable, so that's an added advantage.
What kind of travel guitar to choose for yourself?
If you play both electric and acoustic guitars, consider getting an electric guitar with a piezo bridge if possible. This will give you the ability to play silently while still hearing the acoustic tone. If you play an acoustic guitar, you have the hardest choice. You can buy a travel acoustic guitar, but the disadvantage is that you will not be able to play in silence, and it will be larger than many silent portable electric/acoustic instruments. There are many acoustic travel guitars that produce good quality sound, but don't expect amazing results. Your travel guitar probably won't sound as good as a regular guitar, and that's okay. The goal is to get a portable guitar that you can play away from home. So there's nothing wrong with giving up sound quality if you can take your guitar with you on a trip.
