Comments about Gator Flight Pro TSA Series ATA Molded Classical Guitar Case:

I bought this Gator classical guitar flight case to take a guitar with me on a month-long business assignment. I was totally freaked out by all the horror stories on the internet about guitar destruction on flights. On the flight out from Boston to San Francisco, I just brought the normal guitar case tools and an Oasis humidifier with the thought that I would buy a cheap guitar in California and risk destruction on the way back. I bought a Cordoba C5 in California, which I really recommend for its good classical sound at a reasonable price. The case looked good after the trip out: only minor scratches and no lock damage.

On the trip back, I prepared this way:

1. Down-tune the guitar by a major 5th (7 half-steps) to take most tension off the neck and top.
2. Install a good sound hole humidifier (I really like the Oasis humidifier).
3. Put the sound box into a pillow case. This makes for a snug, but not too tight fit in the case.
4. Lock the case. This Gator case has TSA approved locks. They can get in to inspect without breaking the locks.

At the airport for the San Francisco to Boston flight, I just checked it as baggage. I asked them to "take care of my baby" and put on the offered "Fragile" sticker. When I arrived in Boston, the case came to me through the over-sized baggage process. The case looked good. I resisted the temptation to open the case on the spot because this is a similar situation to a guitar that has been left in the trunk all day in the winter. It has cooled down in the less controlled conditions of the cargo bay. The cool-down was probably not overly fast due to the quality insulation in the Gator case. Warm up slowly in the case.

After I had been home several hours, I opened the case. Not only was the guitar in fine shape, but there was a note inside saying that the case had been opened and inspected by the Covenant people (a service supplier hired by TSA for baggage inspection). They did a good job. The Gator case made their job easy.

    Comments about Gator Flight Pro TSA Series ATA Molded Classical Guitar Case:

    I travel a lot on airlines. I shudder whenever I see some hapless young musician checking an instrument in a light duty case at the ticket counter. I vow never to do so. I bought this case so that I could have a reasonable chance of having my guitar, intact, to practice with at my motel. I'll sleep tonight.
