Hi guys,

i was wondering if theree was a portable guitar fret board that i can use to put in the car and take with me. This would only be to practice scales etc on and doesnt need to make a sound.

I have seen the travel guitars which are similar but have a detachable frame, but are quite expensive as they normally can be plugged in.

im just basically looking for something small as i will probably use it in my work car which is only a single cab and i have no room to place even a half sized normal guitar.

cheers all!

That will probably do! Probably could use a few more frets but looks good!

Thanks mate, your a legend!

Don't bother. Those things are useless as a practice tool. Unless you can practice on something that requires you to synchronise both hands there's really no point since that's the hard part of most of what guitarists do.

Further: what's the point of practising on something that doesn't make sound? That's the whole point of what we do; making sound, unless you're playing on something that makes sounds how are you going to know if what you're doing is at all worth it?

^+1 (unless ts is using one hand to drive and one hand to practice scales...then it makes sense).

Why not just use a cheap guitar? Does your guitar have a bolt on neck? (Lol). A practice prop may seem like a good idea but who would ever use it more than once?

I drive around the work sometimes during the day and get say 10 minutes free every now and again or a lunch break when im on the road so its just something to practice scales etc on.

The car is actually a ute and i wouldnt put a guitar in the back and there is seriously no room in the front for even a small guitar with my work equipment but just a straight neck withought a body i could slidei n somewhere.

ah well worth a try, the shredneck is a start....

The shredneck is an overpriced piece of garbage and you will gain nothing from buying one.

So just buy a super cheap guitar.

Go ahead and spend your money, I don't care. It won't make you sound better.

Sure upgrading your gear will make you sound better.

Might even be able to strike up a friendship with your local repair tech/luthier...I'm sure they have their fair share of crappy and/or busted necks laying around the shop that could be jury-rigged to do pretty much the same thing for next to nothing.

It is not the problem that you are not able to practice guitar for whatever reasons.
It is those stupid ass no sound practice tool doesn't work.
Do you feel like I do!?

Heh.

Takes me back to when I was learning guitar in the 1980s. Made my own out of cardboard "laminated" with Sellotape (other sticky-backed plastic is available...).

Was convenient 'cause I wrote the natural note names for standard tuning on it \m/
