    I’ve had it since ‘97 and finally bringing it back to England with me from storage in the states.

    Wish me luck!

    I have a better idea.
    Flying is just too dangerous.
    Best you should leave it with ME.
    I will send you weekly updates to let you know how it gets on with its new Owner.
    -Cheers

    I have an LG2 and the thing is amazing. For a smallish-medium guitar it just booms clear toneful notes. Carry it on for sure, too cold in baggage...

    That’s no guitar, that’s a member of the family

    Gonna try for carry-on with Virgin, who are pretty cool. Only time I’ve ever had a first class ticket, so I figure it’s now or never.

    Fingers crossed.

    Calton case or similar or just smash it on the curb before you leave...

    It’s safely checked on board with the coats. Now wondering if I should start busking here in first class during the flight.

    Big brother—definitely a baritone.

    And regarding the Teles, ummm...a ’52 and ‘66. But left the ‘66 along with a ’52 reissue back in storage in the states for now.
