The CB "Tennessee Traveller" Travel Guitar

The "Tennessee Traveller" guitar came about at the request of a client who wanted a guitar specifically for airplane touring use; a guitar which would sound as good as larger-bodied guitars, look good on-stage, and fit (inside its case or gig bag) into a standard overhead bin of a passenger aircraft. This proved to be a tall order, one which took a great deal of time in development, but the results were worth the effort. The Tennessee Traveller gives up nothing to its larger brothers, featuring a unique variation of the classic pre-War X-bracing style, along with the same quality materials and workmanship found in CB Guitars' larger body sizes.

Dimensions of the CB Tennessee Traveller are as follows (compare to our other Body Sizes here):

Overall Length: 37-3/8"
Body Length: 17-1/2"
Body Width (Lower Bout): 14-1/4"

Body Depth at Tail: 4-1/16"

The CB Tennessee Traveller is a little guitar that packs a big punch!
