Traveling to Guitar Lesson Camps Travelers Beware
By Bruce Lamb
If you are planning to attend a trip to learn to play guitar this year you may want to think about how you are going to transport your guitar to the many acoustic guitar, blues guitar, flat picking guitar, rock guitar, or Hawaiian slack key guitar lesson venues that are available.
Case Extreme and The Fly It Safe guitar transporter. A new type guitar case that is designed to turn any gig bag or guitar case into a full blown hard knock travel protection unit. It’s extremely light weight material and strength, is why Air Born Express, United States Post Office, and other similar companies use shipping cartons made of this same space age material.
Comes stripped down (the shell with one handle) or with the works, carrying strap, detachable wheels and standard super thick dense foam inserts. It can even protect a guitar without a case in a gig bag.
We have tested the case with two fat guys standing on it. We got the help of a very nice volunteer and the founder and inventor of the case to stand on top of the case. The combined total weight of these two guys was over 700 pounds and it proved to have absolutely no affect what so ever to the case or its contents.
These cases won’t break by baggage handlers unless they are run over by or run into with a forklift. These cases are half the weight of the competitors and they are turtle shell tuff. See it and other travel products for the music maker at our web site or call toll free.
Here is a great testimonial from one of our customers.
“I was sitting in the Dallas airport watching the bags being unloaded from a plane I was just arriving on. After watching several bags come off the plane I finally saw my guitars that were headed to the Healdsburg Guitar Festival.
Down the conveyor came guitar #1, then #2 and #3. I saw guitar #4 start its way out of the plane but it caught the edge of the doorway and flipped off of the conveyor belt, and crashed to the cement tarmac,15-20 feet below. A few bounces later, it came to a
rest, my stomach in a knot. Luckily I had my guitars in your flight
cases because not only did the fallen guitar arrive unscathed, but all 5 of my guitars were in perfect condition. I will continue to use these
cases when shipping my guitars to shows and can highly recommend them for your travel needs. Thanks for saving the day!”
From Taylor Guitars Quarterly Magazine
Taylor Customer Service Manager Zach Arntz offers another alternative: “Until recently, we’ve never recommended a flight case because we never found one that could adequately protect the guitar during airline travel, and they were both heavy and very expensive.
At the last NAMM show we met a gentleman from a company Casextreme (www.casextreme.com) who sells The Clam, a lightweight case made of corrugated plastic that incorporates C-shaped foam pads that go over the original case to protect it for air travel.
The owner of Casextreme, Bruce Lamb actually suggests using a gig bag within the Clam. The substantially reduced weight of the gig bag verses the heaver hard shell case reduces the weight and the overall force of momentum and impact if the Clam is tossed by unruly baggage handlers.
So far he has received no reports of damaged guitars, and the price is quite reasonable. We’ve been referring customers to him and have heard nothing but positive responses.”
Suggested retail: is around $200. (Depending on options)
