Taking my G2622T on a plane in July...

Hi All,

I will be flying with my streamliner g2622t and was wondering if any of you have had any experiences with cases... I have travelled with an electromatic jr in a standard gretsch case and had no trouble brining it on the plane. However, the typycal gretsch Streamliner cases a re about 5 inches longer. Anyone have experience with the TSA-approved SKB or Gator cases? Or any other alternative cases that can withstand potentially being placed with baggage?

Thank you in advance for your time and advice.

I've never flown with a guitar in the hold. Have you seen how baggage is handled? TSA cases protect the TSA, not guitars. Buy a seat in the front of the jet and demand to bring it aboard with you.
