NAMM: Gibson's Acoustic Travel Guitar
Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere...

Gibson Guitar's Acoustic division has created what they claim is the world's first professional-quality travel acoustic guitar. According to Gibson, theTraveling Songwriter delivers everything a working, performing songwriter needs in a guitar by combining a travel-friendly design with great acoustic sound - unplugged or amplified. Designed for easy travel, the guitar comes with a custom travel case with a built-in guitar tuner. The thin body and slightly shortened headstock allow it to fit easily into spaces that won't accommodate a full-depth guitar in a hardshell case. The Guitar features a unique body style that is thin but hollow. The Sitka spruce top is designed with dome construction and the same scalloped bracing pattern as Gibsons from the 1930s, for true acoustic tone.The body shape, from Gibson's historic square-shoulder family, along with the famous 'Moustache' bridge, give the Traveling Songwriter an unmistakably Gibson look. The Traveling Songwriter is designed to fit into any performing or songwriting situation. Its rear soundhole provides the player with enhanced acoustic volume in quiet settings such as a home or office while for stage use, the pickup and onboard 4-band EQ and volume controls provide the songwriter with full live performance capability. MSRP is $3,386. More info:
