I have been using The Chadwick Folding Bass on the road for the past 4 months and have been very satisfied with its performance and portability. No overage charges on any domestic or international flights. In my opinion it is the best Travel Bass for the money. That being said I have decided to upgrade to an Upton Travel Bass. They made a fully carved Brescian model for me earlier this year and I love it. So I have decided to have them build the same bass as a hybrid travel bass. Going to be on the road alot next year and looking forward to having an excellent instrument with me.
