Folks,

Thanks for your responses.

I play for my own pleasure only (no one else would want to listen, I assure you) so portability and price outweigh sound quality for this purchase. The Ozark Travel Guitar can be had for 95 (GBP) and is near the top of my budget, and gets good reviews. That's my most likely purchase, but I might stretch to 125 for something highly recommended, or I may just buy a Johnson Travel Guitar for 50 and save a few quid instead.

I was hoping someone had tried the Aria AMG10 travel electric, which has a built-in battery amp and speaker, like the Pignose but cheaper. I think it might be too big for airliner's overhead lockers, and it probaly sounds naff anyway.

How about the Artisan Travel Guitar? It's like an Aria Sinsonido or Yamaha Silent Guitar, but it's much cheaper than they are. Has anyone tried one?

Thanks again
Phil
