I can tell you about my travel experiences with my baby Larriveee in a soft sided gig bag. I have taken several airline trips now with the instrument and had great success. I guess I cringe a bit when I watch other passengers stuff their bags in next to it, or shuffle the contents of the bin around - but it has travelled beautifully. It fits easily and, in fact, takes up very littel room.
I presume your baby Taylor will travel just as well.
