So, I know there are many threads about flying with guitars. The bottom line seems to be: Take it with you in the plane if at all possible Now, my airline told me specifically, that they will not allow it. However, I need to bring my guitars for a gig in a few weeks I *think* it might be a good idea to put the guitars (LP and Strat) in my trusted Mono Gigbag, and put this bag in a yet-to-be-bought general purpose ATA case. The reasoning is this: The case is sturdy and provides protection against other baggage piled upon it, or being bumped into it. However, the guitar would probably suffer from impacts if not a 100% snug fit with neck support and all. Enter the Mono gigbag, which does exactly this and should provide ample support for the more or less harmless impacts of the gigbag moving inside the case. The advantage: I need a rather simple ATA case without any special fitting interior and all (that I can use for any guitar, if I make it big enough), I have the gigbag handy at my destination and I think the level of protection is superior to the guitar residing directly in a ATA style hard case. However - I've not seen this idea mentioned so far, in my search. Any major thing I'm missing? Thanks!
