Overall Rating:
I looked at a few other "travel" guitars, but nothing compares to this guitar.

The only flaw that I could see was that the strap buttons appeared to be too close together. Oh well.
Model Year: 2001
Price: $500.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Wright Guitars (Soloette)
Features:
This is an American made guitar made from Padauk (an African hardwood) There are 22 medum frets and 2 control knobs, one for volume and one for tone. The pickup is a proprietary pickup that sits in front of the bridge and the electronics are active. This guitar can either be plugged into an amplifier or you can plug headphones directly into this guitar yileding a rich sound. The finish is natural, the body style is single cutaway and the tuners are standard non-locking classical guitar style tuners.
Playability:
The action on this guitar cannot be modified, and the action is set to be as low as possible the with specified nylon strings. The neck is flat (no curvature - which takes some getting used to) but does not adversly alter my playing. You cannot really compare this guitar with any other travel guitar except maybe The Frame (http://www.frameworks-guitars.com ) or maybe the new Yamaha silent guitar. It is a perfect guitar.
Sound Quality:
I play this through a Tech21 Trademark 60 with a touch of compression and reverb. This guitar works best for classical or jazz, solely due to it's nylon strings and acoustic oriented pickup. The guitar sounds rich and full bodied even at the highest frets. This guitar can be played at home, in the studio or on stage.
Durability:
This guitar appears to be steady and does not have a mechanism for making adjustments (at the bridge or to the neck) as a single piece of hardwood, there should be no fluctuation in the neck unless it goes to temperature extremes.
