I can’t travel with any of these guitars. I’d never get one past security, much less fit it into an overhead compartment.

Rajiv Injety says:

That Yamaha!

Diane L Jordan says:

Nice demo, I like Taylor Mini. Yamaha was soft in sound.

Aspirative Music Production says:

Objection. These are not travel guitars.

Toskaleemusic says:

I may call a BT2 my own and it’s a lovely travel guitar. Small, lightweight and offers great tone for its small size. Also very easy to play. I prefer to use custom light phosphor bronze strings by Elixir. It’s also great for practicing when you’re specifially looking for a guitar that is not as loud as a full size.

Oh and you really got me at banana pancakes!

Amy Bell says:

Can someone please name all the songs? Tnx!

Bong Crosby says:

Bang for the buck, it’s the APXT2 hands down.

At 6:46 is this a song or is the guy just jammin’? I kind of like it and ripped it off for myself.

xApachi says:

I own the GS mini walnut, but I really liked the sound of the Yamaha :3

thorn35 says:

GS Mini blows all the others out the door, the rest sound like boxy cardboard to my ears, tho i want the koa one 🙂

The lows on the Taylor Baby sound amazing! But the Yamaha is just perfect!!

The asya was so trash

Laiskaduma says:

I want to buy a travel guitar but not because i’m actually travelling, but because i’m pretty small lol currently i have a dreadnought and it’s too big for me tbh

Isaac Melo says:

A song that you’ve played on Bt2 sounds like “Novo” from “Leonardo Gonçalves” a brazilian gospel singer

I’m from Brazil and love your videos, sorrt if i wrote something wrong lol

*baby taylor* ☺️

Kate Goodwin says:

East coast kills it!!!

Andy Boston says:

I just received the Yamaha APXT2 that I bought at auction as used. AMAZING! It has all the original paperwork, tool and best of all… scratches, dings and dents are literally no where to be found. Yes, new for a used $10.00 price that includes shipping. The guitar sounds much better than I expected and much better than the video. It has a surprising full sound for its size (unplugged) and sounds better than other travelers including my previous fav, an olde Ibanez Daytripper. My only criticm… the gig bag is cheap and too thin for real travel. Yamaha should have bumped the price a bit so the gig back would be worthy of the guitar.I’m hoping this Yamaha will fit in the excellent giog bag I bought for my Daytripper.

Martin Swales says:

For affordability playability and sound I fell in love with a Segal Excursion love It.

Brian Peck says:

they may be travel guitars but none of them are minis

xneverwalkalonex says:

JJ Sagusay says:

Is yamaha JR1 good one?

Desmora Aromsed says:

Dennis Maher says:

Sorry but you missed out the best travel guitar, the takamine taka-mini. Brilliant little guitar with the best pickup in the world.

Luke’s Vintage Rc car restoration says:

The CORT Earth mini is missing why? Amazing instrument

E. C. says:
