The April 2010 issue of Acoustic Guitar
features an article on flying with a guitar, written by bluesman Chris Smither
for a link to the article). As someone who travels with his Collings 12-fret year around, Smither has some very specific tips to offer, and some run contrary to another article on the topic, written by our senior editor Scott Nygaard in the April 2009 issue (click HERE
for a link to that story). While Nygaard (who used to log thousands of air miles as a member of Tim O'Brien's band) prefers to check his guitar as luggage, Smither makes a case for carrying his guitar onboard in a gigbag. Obviously, there's more than one way to go about getting your guitar in the air, and we'd love to hear from Acoustic Guitar Community members about their experiences, so here's your chance to let your voice be heard!
