Quick and dirty? er um sturdy?
cut 6 rectangles out of that cardboard you stashed away when your refrigerator was delivered, and join them with packing tape to seal the box inside, add a packing-tape handle and you are ready to go. you'll have to cut your git out of the box when you arrive, and re-tape it to return.
As to carry-on, that will depend on the airline, since that could be interesting trying to shove it under the seat in front of you, bwahaha
Can I substitute bourbon for beer?
Thanks Ken. That was my first custom build. Someone on this site named it "Rockin Peacenick" I Like it.
The Double Humbucker gives it some serious kick.
I got free acoustic guitar case, you know, the cardboardy, brass clasp style. Laid the cbg in it, added some sponge foam blocks cut to size, glued 'em in. Wasn't very compact, but it is sturdy for my git.
I saw one here somewhere where the neck could slide partially into the box, but not one that was removable. I don't think it would be overly hard to make the neck come off, for example a bolt on neck with threaded inserts, but what would happen to the strings?
1" dowel diddly bow. Will fit in a fishing rod travel case,or a piece of 2" PVC pipe with end caps.
