Sorry, its an interesting concept, but as I mentioned above, I am interested only in acoustic instruments for a number of reasons. I did my time messing with batteries, headphones, cables, amps, tone modifiers, etc. No longer have any interest whatsoever in any of that for me personally.
I am sorry for the irrelevancy. If I could say anything about fully acoustic travel guitars, they are all compromises at the end of the day when they are purchased not as their special kind of instruments but specifically for traveling. What I am saying by that is, when the box is altered in any way, that should affect its tone and sonority, or the neck has been connected with the body in some different ways from the non-travel guitars. There is also a lot of getting used to involved in terms of their play-ability. I am talking from my own experience with some travel/parlor guitars, including a Kurosawa Gigpacker that I had for a few years in my mid 20s.
With a special hard case it was the handiest nylon strung guitar I ever had, and liked it a lot but none compared to regular CGs. It was simply a different animal. Among the parlor guitars that I have tried or owned (just one, no brand label), some of them were nice and lovable but only as a different kind of instruments IMPO. Besides, their sizes are not so much for traveling, and more or less the same as the regular sized classicals compared to some instruments from 1960s or 70s which also sound different from today's classical guitars mainly because of the slightly smaller box sizes.
I also currently own a Godin Duet Nylon from the 90s. It's been more than two decades but its acoustic sonority is nothing comparable to regular CGs. I am mentioning it only because the neck is detachable and so it barely fits in a checked in luggage. After all, I am currently on the go with a regular flamenco guitar on which I could also play classical, as well as a locally procured Rafael Mervi Molina which was picked up from a rubbish pile and sounds OK after some minor adjustments.
I hope this helps you.
