A couple of weeks ago I posted a thread regarding air travel with a bass. For those of you that responded, I want to post an update of my experience. I purchased an Epiphone Accu bass for $30 for travel, (not worried about damage or theft). I removed the neck from the body and packed it in my suitcase. Upon arrival I reassembled the bass, did a quick setup and voila!. No problems. Plugged in my Vox mini amp device and headphones and was able to play and practice to my hearts content.
