Which travel guitar? Answered

I would like to buy either the Martin Backpacker or the Washburn Rover. The Rover is cheaper, and comes with a hard case. But, the Martin is a better quality guitar. What do you think?

They both look kind of delicate.
If the headstock/neck or the soundboard got damaged
while you were on a trip it would be a bummer,
and probably would not be worth repairing.
The Rover and Backpacker are nice,
but you have another option too. I will call it
"The RoadWarrior":

The road warrior is really cool, but I am looking for an acoustic.

Go to the store and try them both out.
