Ain't no big thing

The original travel guitar, the Chiquita's small enough to carry along anywhere, so you'll have a real guitar that sounds great wherever you go.

It's a fun guitar that's also a fine guitar. It has a Humbucking pickup and a quality tunable bridge for practice, composition, and (yes!) performance. Wherever you go, keep your chops up with a Chiquita! It's perfect for travel: a quality guitar that's about a foot shorter than a Strat.

Join other musicians including Joe Bonamassa, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Andy Summers, Paul McCartney (a left-handed bass version), Billy Gibbons, and Pat Metheny in discovering the small and mighty Chiquita Travel Guitar.
