Thread Name: Tech: Instrument Cases for Flying
Subject: RE: Tech: Instrument Cases for Flying
A friend with a Hiscox case just recently had it trashed by baggage handlers. It looked like it had been crushed in a vice or something - hinges were all bent and stuff. Guitar inside was fine though, so the case is obviously pretty tough.

Following Gurney's comment, I've done that - I took a cheap nylon-string to Greece in a soft gig bag, and it didn't get a scratch. I guess relying on the kindness of strangers is easier when there's less at stake though!
