Want to jam when you get there? Practice in the hotel? Jump on stage and play? Take a Rambler™ Travel Electric Guitar – a full scale professional instrument that breaks down to fit in a briefcase or computer bag. This is a great sounding, great playing instrument perfected for the traveling musician. The Rambler™ offers unsurpassed quality, playability and resonance.
The Rambler™ travel guitar features locking tuners located on the bottom of the guitar. The strings are loaded from the top of the neck through the patented StringKeeper™. Dual humbucking pickups switchable from neck to bridge or both provide a fat full sound and excellent tone. Separate tone and volume controls provide a wide range of equalization. Intonation and string action is set with a fully adjustable Tuneomatic bridge. The adjustable nut, a unique feature of the Rambler™, allows string action to also be adjusted at the top of the neck.
Weighing less than five pounds and with an overall length of about 30”, the Rambler™ is a very portable guitar even when assembled. Scale length is 24-1/2” (Gibson scale) with 20-21 frets. Many travelers prefer to take the guitar apart and place the separated neck and body in their carry on luggage. To take the guitar apart, loosen a single thumbwheel on the top of the neck and remove the StringKeeper™. Wrap the strings around the body through the StringCatcher™, tucking the StringKeeper™ between the middle tuners. Then take off the neck by loosening four thumbwheels. Simply reverse the process to assemble the guitar.
While playing and sounding like a full size electric guitar, the Rambler™ has a sonic advantage due to the absence of a headstock. The string energy normally wasted as the strings pass over the nut is channeled back into the neck, providing excellent resonance and sustain. Neck relief is adjustable with the dual action truss rod, allowing more or less relief as desired. The Rambler™ Classic has a solid Canadian Maple body, in either Tobacco or Cherry Sunburst. The Classic comes with a specially designed and embroidered Strobel Guitars gig bag.
Strobel Guitars also offers a Rambler™ Custom Travel Guitar, with choice of tone woods, neck shape, fretboard, inlay and custom colors. Options include coil tapping, on board pre-amp, Piezo bridge, etc. Strobel Guitars recently introduced the Rambler™ Custom Travel Electric Bass guitar, offering a 34” scale neck with the nut located at the third fret. Overall length of the Rambler™ Bass is less than 35”. Both the Rambler™ Custom Guitar and Bass are outfitted with high end Schaller electronics and components.Published in
