Good travel guitar?
« on: April 09, 2007, 02:24:36 pm »
I will be biking the Northern tier this summer.  I would really like to bring a guitar. The guitar needs to be small light and durable.  I will be pulling a burley nomad trailer behind me and would strap it to the top, anyone have any suggestions?

I don't know much about guitars. But I do know that, on the Northern Tier, you will hit some rain. I also know that water finds its way into everything, including electronics, tents, tool kits, and presumably guitars.

I'm not a guitarist but I have backpacking friends who are and the Martin backpacker is what seems the general consensus in guitars to pack when travelling light.

considering the same issue, I decided to invest $100 in a good used
mandolin.  it is tuned like the top 4 strings of a guitar, just up-side-
down. (G-D-A-E).  turn your chords over and your are set to start
strumming.  plus you have the fun of a new instrument to fiddle with.
