So I’ve had to fly twice in the last few months (not really by choice, I’m not a madman). Just passing on the info for others that might need it. It may not look cool and vintage, but man, I’m grateful I bought the most recent Fender TSA case for only a little more money. 1) If you get a super cheap flight on a budget carrier, it can cost less than checked bags to buy a seat for your instrument. I’m pleased to say it easily fits between airplane seats. 2) It survived being checked on an 8 hour flight, and then through a transfer. I thought maybe I just got lucky with the baggage handlers until... 3) Yesterday. On the last escalator in my journey, at the top of the escalator, the step knocked it out of my hand. The guitar slid and tumbled down the whole way. My stomach dropped. Like an idiot I went to grab it, and I tumbled down with it. I was stuck with it at the bottom trying to get up and getting tumbled by the escalator for like a whole minute. Case is a little beat up now, but I’m happy to report I pulled the guitar out at my apartment and it’s totally fine. Any of you have some horror stories? Recommendations/tips for others?
