Traveler Guitar LTD EC1 BLK overview

  • 1Description

An electric guitar developed in conjunction with ESP and styled in a vintage black finish, the Traveler Guitar LTD EC-1 is relatively lightweight at 5.3 lb, yet provides many of the distinctive features and timbres of an LTD EC series instrument. Its single-cutaway mahogany body has a carved arch-top design with gold-plated locking tuners sitting inside the body itself to minimize space, making the guitar more portable.

The bolt-on mahogany neck offers a 24.75” scale, a black walnut fingerboard with a 15.75” radius, 22 jumbo frets, and LTD-style pearloid inlays. The tuning machines provide a 14:1 gear ratio for precise tuning. On the body, you’ll find an adjustable tune-o-matic style bridge.

This guitar is outfitted with an active ESP-designed humbucking pickup in the bridge position, with volume and tone knobs giving you broad control over the electronics’ timbre. The guitar also offers an amenity conducive to traveling, a built-in battery-powered headphone amplifier accepting standard 3.5mm headphone connections. When plugged into the headphone amplifier, you’ll find that the tone knob also functions as a four-way selector, letting you choose between different types of sounds. Clean, boost, overdrive, and distortion are all available; simply plug in your headphones, loop them into your ears, and start wailing. If you’d like to jam along with songs off your computer, smartphone, or other compatible device, a 3.5mm auxiliary jack has been provided for this express purpose.

A deluxe gig bag has been included, making transportation even more convenient. Also, note its relatively small size. If you’ve ever traveled via plane with your guitar in a gig bag, you probably know the feeling of clutching it to your person, fearing that horrible moment when some airline employee might order you to check it into the cargo hold, and thus, possibly damage or destroy your precious instrument. This guitar, however, is compact enough to fit in most standard overhead compartments, so you can walk through the airport on the way to your flight breathing a little easier.
