Traveler SPD Speedster Hot Rod, Gloss Black
Traveler Guitar Speedster Hot Rod, Gloss Black
The standard against which all travel guitars are measured.
Portability and performance in a compact, modern design. The Traveler Guitar Speedster Hot Rod is a full 24 ¾-inch scale travel guitar featuring a custom Headphone Amplifier with 4 different tones, a dual-rail humbucker and a coil-split switch.
With its unique modern-retro look and detachable tear-drop arm support, the Speedster represents a design revolution in travel guitars. The Speedster is built for portability and performance with its neck-through-body design and standard volume and tone controls. The dual-rail humbucker has a coil-split switch which allows for even more sonic versatility by giving you humbucker gain or single coil clean all in one pickup.
The guitar features active electronics with our V2 headphone amplifier built-in, allowing you to practice privately. Plug in headphones or your favorite amp and cycle through clean, boost, overdrive and distortion tones using the custom tap-pot. In addition, the Speedster Hot Rod's V2 Headphone Amp is loaded with an aux-in jack so you can play along with your favorite tracks while listening through headphones or your favorite amp.
Traveler’s 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 28% shorter and 51% percent lighter than a typical full-sized electric guitar.
The Traveler Guitar Speedster Hot Rod is the perfect solution for traveling players looking for a modern looking guitar that’s compact and comfortable. Fits easily in airline overhead compartments in the included Deluxe Gig Bag.
“My Traveler Hot Rod guitar is totally smoking. I’m not an accomplished guitarist. I mainly write and demo songs on guitar; mostly rhythm parts and some simple leads. The Traveler guitar has a wide variety of tones for funk rhythms and ballads and when I need to do a crunch part with a fat distortion this guitar is totally happening for all of it. It’s small but mighty!!!! Handy and completely professional. I couldn’t be happier.” - Emilio Castillo Of Tower Of Power
