Need some help here. My 16 yr. old son will be traveling soon and wants to take his new Ovation with him. I've done a little looking around and am not encouraged by what I'm finding. It seems that checking the guitar is a very risky choice and trying to carry it on you are at the mercy of the flight attendents, with a great possibility of it still ending up in the cargo hold. Does anyone have any advise or recent experience to share?
