"Very playable, but needs a few extras."

I bought this (obviously) for travel. It holds tune well and plays well. It is very lightweight and easy to pack along. The pickups sound good. My only issue is with the stethophone. The sound is adequate through the stethophone, but no matter how I adjusted it, is was HORRIBLY uncomfortable! In all fairness, I have always felt ear pain when wearing a stethoscope, be it medical or for auto mechanics. The stethophone is no different. Just painful after less than a minute of strumming. Soooo... I bought a VOX AC30 and plugged in my iPhone earbuds. Problem solved! I can play for hours now in total comfort. I would seriously recommend that anyone considering this guitar spend the extra $$$ for one of the VOX mini amplifiers and forget about the stethophone. Yes, you will need to pack a few pairs of AAA batteries, but your enjoyment of this fine instrument will be greatly increased.
Oh... When I received mine the stethophone tubing had been kinked and torn during shipping. I called Traveler and they mailed me a new tubing piece without delay. Great support!
New to guitar.
