Hey guys. I have to travel soon and by necessity I have to travel sort-of light. I'm also flying out of LaGuardia in NYC, and as many New Yorkers know, they won't even let you get instruments past the security checkpoint anymore... NOTHING gets carried on, even in soft cases. They made a friend check his bass in a soft gig bag about a year ago. I have an anvil case for one of my guitars but for reasons too complex to go into here, it will be too bulky to actually make it to the airport with me. What are the dangers/drawbacks of taking, say, my Tokai strat or G&L asat and unbolting the neck from the body, reassembling with a fresh pack of strings at my new location? I could then carry on the guitar body or neck (or maybe even both) in a carryon suitcase packed with clothes all around it, as it would be under the 38" length limit. Both guitars have recently been set up. The G&L has a 3-bolt with a micro-tilt, the Tokai has your standard 4-bolt, 5 springs on the vibrato set to keep the bridge flat. I think there may or may not be a shim in the neck pocket, not sure. I'm wondering how drastically, if at all, this might affect the setup of either guitar when I put it back together, assuming all neck bolts are fully snug right now and nothing else changes during the flight. Any input/advice would be welcomed!
