Invented and patented by Russ Strobel, the Rambler™ travel electric guitar enables the traveling musician to bring their guitar as carryon luggage. Russ, a degreed electrical engineer and a guitar player, has been working in the field of portable electronics for over twenty five years. His career often demanded extensive travel. “Throughout my travels around the world I missed having my guitar, so I invented a professional executive travel guitar that can be taken apart and transported in a briefcase.”
Our guitars are endorsed by Jimmy Thackery and the Drivers, Smokin' Joe Kubek and Bnois King, Tommy Castro, Tim O'Donnel and Albert Castiglia. Please visit our Gallery Page to see pictures and videos of them playing their Rambler Professional Electric Travel Guitars.
Strobel guitars and basses are fabricated from the finest tone woods using expert luthier techniques. The Rambler™ Custom comes with 10+ flamey maple tops, and your choice of a swamp ash or Honduran mahogany body. The NEW affordable Rambler™ Classic shares the great design attributes of the Rambler™ Custom. The guitars have a full 24 1/2 scale length with 20 to 21 frets.
There are several travel guitars on the market, but only one travel guitar that plays and sounds good enough to take on stage. The Strobel Rambler™ conveniently breaks down to separate the neck and body so the components fit in a briefcase or computer bag. No more travel hassles! Strobel guitars are fine musical instruments perfected for the traveling musician. We offer a top quality, great sounding instrument that makes it easy to travel with your guitar.
The StringKeeper™ keeps the strings in order when the Rambler™ portable guitar is taken apart. Simply loosen the top thumbwheel, remove the StringKeeper™, wrap the strings around the body through the StringCatcher™ and tuck the StringKeeper™ between the middle string tuners.
The absence of a headstock increases sustain and resonance beyond that available with standard guitars. We combine the highest quality materials and design expertise to deliver exceptional sonic characteristics and excellent playability.
