I've seen lots of tutorials and plans for ukeleles but none for a small travel guitar.  Does anyone have any links to instructions on how to build a mini six-string guitar?

I did some google searching and found a number of travel guitar designs with full size scale (24~25").

Youtube also had several demos and at least one how-to.

Check it out

A 6 string CBG ought to travel well, its about the same size as the Martin Backpacker based on the McNally Strum-stick

Best design I've seen so far is the headless TravelGuitar, with the tuning machines located in the body. You can do something similar with a 2x4; check the recent 2x4 build challenge, and I believe there are a couple examples. Also, go to www.travelguitar.com and check out their commercial offerings for build ideas.

Here is the YouTube link for a DIY Travel Guitar
