Hey Andrew maybe you could use something like this...

Its not a guitar but it is small and portable. Also I remember seeing on one of my live music dvds a guy playing his guitar through a ciggarett box with a wee speaker in the side.

Apart from the Korg already mentioned Andrew for amplification you could try a Tom Sholz Rockman (http://www.samedaymusic.com/product--DAVROCKGA). Think he started the pocket headphone amp back in the 80s when he was with Boston... This probably comes with a free pair of spandex/latex pants and a curly wig and you have to play 'More than a feeling' 2 times a day as part of the deal.

However you could also look at a tascam - like the korg but mp3 riff tracker/player (http://www.americanmusical.com/item.aspx?i=TAS%20MPGT1&src=D0301DT0HAMS0000&utm_source=Feed&utm_medium=Shopping.com)

For a guitar my daughter loves her shortscale Daisyrock Heartbreaker.
Though if you don't like that one they also do a very fetching butterfly and a a daisy Andrew. Worthy companions to your Jem tongue.gif .

So I'm sitting here bored in my hotel room, wishing I could practice ... I would love to have a guitar that folded up to the size of a pencil, along with an entirely self contained 100w valve amp and effects rig the size of a cell phone, all weighing less than a couple of pounds, but I suspect that they are not available ...

In more realistic terms, does anyone have experience with travel guitars? I would put size as the most important criteria (the smaller the better) - definitely should be small enough to get into a suitcase somehow, and I don't care if the tone sucks as long as I can use it to practice on.

Anyone used any of these?


You can't beat an Ibanez Mikro! My son has one and it's a blast to mess around with.
