A reader named Seth left me some good words in a comment or two so I followed the backlink to his website Etribe.com and was impressed by what I found: instructions and schematics for building your own travel guitar.
“I envision a distributed production network where each person can build as little or as much of a guitar as they please, with minimal tools, and be compensated somehow through an online guitar/parts/bank, in either finished guitars, parts for guitars, money or other medium of exchange.”
-Seth from Etribe.com
These travel guitars are small, hollow bodied, light, do not have a headstock, and could easily fit into a rucksack. I have met many travelers who bind themselves down with big and bulky full scale guitars. I look at them and think about what a burden it must be to carry around something so large and unweildy, which invariable occupies the use of an entire hand and arm. Likewise, I also meet many wanderers who say that they would love to be able to travel with a guitar if they were not so bulky and large. It is my impression that Seth’s little travel guitars may be a good alternative to both scenarios.
