Traveler Guitar Introduces Escape EG-2
(Press Release | Posted 2009-11-15)
Traveler Guitar is proud to introduce the Escape EG-2 to its ever-expanding line of full-scale, travel-sized guitars. The EG-2 is a full 25 ½"-scale electric guitar featuring a compact traditional double-cutaway body shape and classic 3-ply pick guard, which provide vintage looks and modern comfort to the traveling guitarist. At just 29 ½" 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 Escape EG-2 also boasts more traditional guitar features such as an alder body, American Hard Maple neck, ebonized rosewood fretboard, standard strap pins and a fully adjustable truss rod. Includes Deluxe Gig Bag, 9V battery and comes standard with D’Addario EXL-110 strings.
