(Image credit: Jammy)

Have you ever found yourself yearning for a travel-size guitar that was a bit more, well, travel-size? If so, a new guitar called the Jammy might be just what you’ve been looking for.

Developed by RnD64, and funded to the tune of well over $170,000 by an Indiegogo campaign, the Jammy is a 17-inch long, portable, digital travel guitar that features 15 standard-sized frets and a detachable neck. Purportedly, the guitar can fit into most backpacks and is small enough to comply with most airlines’ carry-on regulations.
