In 3 weeks I'm flying from Toronto to the Cayman Islands where I will most likely live out the rest of my life........now I have a problem...I've read the numerous posts about people taking their basses as carry-on or checking them with the "general population" of luggage and I thought of another idea. My problem is that I have a stop-over in Charlotte, NC, and even if they let me on the first flight, I may get problems prior to getting on the second flight. I was thinking of actually separating the neck and body and putting the two pieces in my main bag, insulated by layers and layers of clothing. The bass would be in this state for no longer than 6 hours and I'd re-attach the neck as soon as I get to my hotel. It's a MIA Fender J. Am I insane or would this work?
