Thread Name: Guitars on flights
Subject: RE: Guitars in planes
Done a few tours abroad with Dorset Triumph Folk Dancers, taking my much loved, 'brick built' twelve string guitar, in a very solid fibre/resin case. The only problem I had was the weight of it severely limited the amount of other luggage I could take. Fortunately, the sides 'Squire' negotiated a group weight allowance and the excess was shared among the group.
I'll admit to a few qualms as I saw it disappear down the conveyer heading for the plane's hold. The case did get a couple of small holes punched in it, nothing serious but the guitar was fine. Even stayed in tune, well as much as the damn thing ever did!
(I've got and old Eko Ranger – I just wonder, could it be?)
