While it's common to see musical equipment like keyboards become more compact for travel, it's much less common to see a travel guitar that bends as this one does. This one from Fender hinges at the neck, making it so that this guitar can be stashed in an overhead compartment as a piece of airline carry-on.

The folding travel guitar comes with an elegant tortoiseshell pickguard, as well as a gig bag to keep the guitar free of scratches while it goes on the road—or flies through the skies. Although this travel guitar could easily be lightweight and cheap for the purposes of travel, Fender's guitar itself is beautifully crafted, featuring a mahogany neck, back and sides, as well as a rosewood fingerboard and bridge.
