I'm concerned about how to get a guitar on the plane. I've seen passengers with guitar gig bags wandering through the airports, but never have actually seen a gig bag on a plane.
I was thinking of removing a bolt-on neck and putting the neck and body in a carry-on bag, then reassembling when I get to the other end. I figured out that a neck that is less than 25" from top of headstock to bottom of fingerboard wii fit in a 22" case if angled from corner to corner.
Has anybody ever done this? Any other suggestions for air travel with a guitar by those who have successfully done so?
