Travel guitars are designed for the guitarist on the go, the nomadic busker or a player who prefers a smaller sized guitar. They are made with a short scale length and scaled down ¾ sized bodies. They are easy playing, fun and accessible guitars with a full bodied steel string sound. Although made for adults they are a great choice for children 8 plus looking for a steel string guitar.
The benefits of a short scale length.
A guitar scale length is the distance between the nut and saddle. A scale length shorter than 62cm (25.4 inches) is generally considered to be a short scale. A short scale guitar is tuned to the same pitch as a long scale guitar but requires less string tension. In effect the string is looser and more elastic. Playing notes and chords requires less pressure from your fretting hand making it a little easier on your fingers to play. Shorter scale length guitars have a shorter total neck length than a long scale guitar making it easier for smaller players to reach the entire length of the guitar neck.
