Guitar sales are soaring during COVID-19 quarantines, and that makes perfect sense. What better way to spend time at home than learning an instrument? But not everyone is sitting on their duff all day, and traveling with a guitar can be a serious headache. This portable guitar trainer makes your music studies truly portable.

The Jamstik Guitar Trainer is a truly transportable guitar instruction tool, complete with apps and software that makes practice easy and fun. The backpack-ready controller features a shortened neck complete with six strings, frets and sensors so you can get instant feedback from your fingers.

At just over 18 inches, you can practice anywhere with the Jamstik. The new 2020 edition features an updated tactile direction pad, matte finish and spring-loaded strings for a more realistic feel. It’s a great way to learn chords, songs, scales and picking patterns, without the need to check an extra item when you fly.
