Thread Name: Guitars on flights
Subject: Tech: Guitars on flights
Does anyone have any knowledge/experience about guitars in gig cases carried in holds on flights. Someone once told me that the drop in air pressure in an airplane hold can seriously damage the instrument if the strings aren't loosened pre-flight. Another guy poo-pood the notion saying that he'd flown thousands of miles without loosening strings and had experienced no trouble.

Anybody have a view or opinion?
