OVERVIEW

Ready to go wherever you go. Order today.

The Escape Mark III is a full-scale acoustic/electric travel guitar with advanced features for the discriminating player on-the-go. The Escape Mark III is a full 25-1/2"-scale acoustic/electric travel guitar with a headphone amp built in. The proprietary In-Body Tuning System uses standard tuning machines relocated into the body, eliminating the need for a headstock. As a result, you’ll have the same full-scale playing experience you’re used to on an instrument that’s 26% shorter and 47% thinner than a typical, full-sized acoustic.

The built-in Shadow headphone amplifier produces a crisp, clean signal through headphones for private practice sessions. A Shadow Nanoflex pickup under the saddle senses the vibrations of the strings and body for an acoustic-style sound without the bulk of a resonant body. The control plate includes volume, treble and bass controls, a built-in chromatic tuner as well as a headphone output and aux-in for jamming along with your favorite tracks. A standard ¼" output jack allows you to plug into your favorite amp.

Features include a mahogany body with cutaway for high fret access, and a bolt-on mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard. It has standard tuning machines and uses standard acoustic strings, measures only 29-1/2" long, and is ready to play right out of the gig bag. The Escape Mark III is a perfect solution for traveling acoustic players unwilling to compromise on scale length, and looking for a compact yet comfortable guitar. Fits easily in airline overhead compartments in the included deluxe gig bag.

    Comments about Traveler Guitar MK3 MHG Escape Mark III Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is a well made travel guitar that can easily fit in the overhead bin or under your seat on a plane. Besides the small profile, there are no protruding tuners to be bent or broken by someone cramming their oversize luggage next to your guitar. The guitar itself is well made, stays in tune, and has good onboard electronics for tuning, listening with headphones, or playing through an amp. It is also comfortable to play. It seems a little pricey, but as I said, it is well constructed from quality materials (mine had the mahogany body) and had good sound.

      Comments about Traveler Guitar MK3 MHG Escape Mark III Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I'm mainly a fingerstyle player, and this guitar is great for that. Very well built and sounds good through
      an amp. I even recorded direct to a computer with it. Everyone I played it for was amazed when I showed
      them what I used to record it.
      I'm an early riser, and can get some good pratice without waking the house. I also take it to the office and
      play it without headphones. It's just loud enough to hear myself without disturbing anyone else.
      Changing strings is a bit of a pain, but not bad if you use a battery powered winder.

        Love my traveler guitar. I play it on my lunch breaks in the car and at home when I don't want to bother anyone. I mainly play it acoustically, but the headphones work well too. I can even output it through my car stereo system which is kinda cool. I actually find myself playing it more than my OM-28 and telecaster because it's so easy to pick up and play.

        A Great Way to Bring a Guitar on a Plane

            Comments about Traveler Guitar MK3 MHG Escape Mark III Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            Small enough to stuff in an airplane overhead even if boarding last (it will fit on top of some wheelie somewhere) but just big enough to play seated with your arm resting on the body. It comes with PB 10s and the pickup sounds better with 11s or 12s. I settled on 11s. With 11s you can practice acoustically in a quiet room. The factory setup was dead on 3/32" and 2/32" at the 12th fret, low and high E, respectively. The intonation is perfect, the neck relief was right where I would put it (something around 5 mils), and the guitar is nice looking. The built-in tuner works well and is very handy since there is no easy place to clip-on an external tuner. On the down side the minimalist finish had some tool marks in the front and back cavities around the tuners.

            With headphones the tone can be brittle, in particular with the stock strings. Heavier strings fatten it up. Using a 3.5mm Stereo (TRS) cable you can go from the headphone output into the Aux input of a Bluetooth speaker. With the right speaker this sounds really excellent. My current favorite is the Beoplay A1 which fits in the Traveller gig bag pocket and when placed on the floor sounds very good. I found Bluetooth speakers with larger drivers (such as the Beoplay A1, iLoud Monitor, Klipsch Groove, any Marshall) make better travel guitar amps than the ones based on multiple 1" drivers (most of the rest).

            Through an acoustic amp or PA the guitar sounds as you would expect; a bit "piezo-like". I found the Boss AD-2 (12 o'clock on the ambience/reverb, 9 o'clock on the resonance) makes it sound good enough that you could use it as a backup gig guitar.
