While there is a certain charm about lugging a rectangular hard care or a shoulder strap-fitted acoustic guitar case through the airport, the fact of the matter is there's nothing convenient about the process, which is precisely why Minicorda have gone ahead and developed an electroacoustic travel guitar that finds an exceptional balance between big-league sound and a diminutive package that allows it to easily be transported in suitcases and backpacks.
What's great about the Minicorda electroacoustic travel guitar is the fact that it was constructed with acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) polymers on an aluminum frame, allowing it to boast a very light weight. However, this guitar is also equipped with a microphone, pre-amp and an array of tonal controls that give players a high level of control over their sound output.
Available for a price of $270, the Minicorda will appeal to guitarists on the go who don't want to travel without their six-stringed companion but aren't keen on the hassle associated with hauling around traditional guitars.
