I know I have a thread like this somewhere else.. but didn't hear much from people. I thank Jimmy for his input. But those people who have a flight case. You know that your bass is going where your luggage is.. how do you set up your bass to makesure the neck will be fine? Do you tune down the strings a bit if so to what then? Or keep them on normal tuning E-A-D-G. Again, sorry for creating almost a same thread, but I need a bit more feeback from other people. Thankyou for those who tried and talked to me. But I want to see how others do it also. I do have a Gator Flight case for my base.. everyting is fine just worried about neck to strings wise. how do you guys or girls prepare your bass for the flights. Please Mods.. have mercy on this poor college boy that is a newbe to the bass world and to these forums. and allow this thread if possible stay up here for a bit. because I really care for my dear Cassandra Destiny (Fender Jazz bass).
