Traveler Guitar Escape MK-II Acoustic-Electric Travel Bass Guitar
They say good things come in small packages, and if we’re to take that as the truth, the Traveler Escape MK-II acoustic bass guitar is really, really good. Weighing in at just 5.25 pounds and at only 36 long, this axe epitomizes everything you’d look for in a travel instrument. Its design is a bit funky with its sparse face, but that doesn’t take away from the fact this guitar is extremely playable, thanks to high action and an ebonized rosewood fretboard. Its 32 scale-length definitely will have you thinking that you’re playing an actual bass guitar if you close your eyes.
An onboard LR Baggs Hybrid-Element preamp drives the tone of this thing to the next level, giving players the option to either plug into an amp or use headphones to practice. You can also use the onboard EQ to alter the tone of this instrument to your liking. It’s unlikely that any players will full-on replace their bass guitars with a travel bass like this; however, the playability of this little thing (along with the fact it’s so easy to travel with) definitely makes it an instrument any traveling musician should look into.
