What was it that sparked my interest in travel guitars? I’m traveling on beach vacation in a couple weeks and I am facing a tough decision. Should I lug my massive full-sized guitar all the way across the ocean or just leave it at home and not have anything?
I decided I didn’t like either option. So I just went out and bought a new 3/4-size travel guitar.
That was only a week ago and there hasn’t been a moment where I’ve regretted purchasing the mini-guitar. Sure, it doesn’t have the same volume as a full-size guitar but it feels great in my hands and it’s going to travel nicely in the overhead bins.
I did quite a bit of research before buying this guitar (I know, it sounded like an impulse buy but it wasn’t). I thought it might be useful to share with you what I found when it comes to travel guitars. My goal was to find a travel guitar that didn’t suck.
For those looking to purchase their first classical guitar, your research has probably brought you across the Dean Espana Classical Guitar several times. It is one of a few beginner classical guitars that have become popular due to its value and quality.
Dean Guitars has been making guitars since 1976 and have established themselves as a great American guitar maker. While they are better known for their electric guitars, they also produce acoustics, basses and of course, the classical guitar.
