a harmonica would be easier to travel with

Best Answer

The Martin Backpacker is a great travel guitar... it is a lightweight full-fretted little powerhouse. The sound is understandably a little hollow but for actual playability... this is the one. The string height is perfect for fingering classical stylings. I reccomend it for other reasons... it has a terrific Martin warranty and is the gold standard in materials and workmanship.<br />

If the sound is not enough... try the "Little Martin" which is a shortened Fretboard and is a small-bodied guitar with formiddable sound. <br />

Good luck

Don' own one myself. Have played one, and was very uncomfortable with it - I suppose that gets better. Have also played Ibanez's travel guitar and felt it made better sound, and though small, it felt like playing a guitar.<br />

I used to use an old beat up Ovation for camping. The composite shell can take the beating, and it sounds good too. Whatever you're gonna use, tune it down(loosen strings) when heading out into temperature extremes - don' want nothin warpin'.
