    It has to go in the hold. Make sure the airline treats it as FRAGILE cargo. It should be fine, we've had no probs bringing a few Fenders and Gibsons over on planes at various times.

    We shipped 2 guitars, an electric and an acoustic, they were packed by the shippers and came in the container and were absolutely fine, just needed a retune but don't they always!!!

     

    Don't know about taking them on a plane and I know OH was worried as to the temp changes when being shipped but they were fine.

    Thing is the case its in is a soft one, and I don't really want to fork out for a hard case just for one journey. Think I'll let the shippers sort it out. Its Hannah's guitar though and I haven't told her she'll be without it for a couple of months!!! Might have to send her round to see Wizzywozza!! till the container gets here.

    Pete had one in a hard case and one in a soft case and the packers packed it really well and marked it fragile/handle with care and it was fine.
