Subject: RE: BS: Airlines Hate instruments
When I last went to South Carolina, I took my fiddle and I carried it with me. No way was I going to check it in. I saw another guy board with a guitar in a gig bag on his back. He wouldn't check it either. They do make these big transport cases for guitars--look like the old style wooden coffins--but they shield your instrument. I wouldn't check a guitar in without it being in one of those. I'd definitely rather carry it with me.
