Thread Name: Tech: Instrument Cases for Flying
Subject: RE: Tech: Instrument Cases for Flying
I've watched guitars being unloaded at the airport. Hard cases got thrown onto the pile as they come, soft cases were PLACED on one side, them PLACED on the top.
You pays your money and you takes your chances, to rework a phrase.
In my only experience (21hrs, 2 planes) the expensive guitar in the (not very) hard case suffered, the cheapo Spanish in the soft vinyl case had not a mark.
