I am flying to Florida from Colorado in February to play a reunion set with my old band at the Aura Music festival. my flight connects in Atlanta. I recently purchased a Modulus Quantum 5 - seeing as these basses are no longer being made, I am worried about flying with it. I know that we are supposed to be able to carry instruments on, but no airline will guarantee it. I'm not worried about the bass getting damaged if checked, it will be packed well. I am more concerned about the bass being lost as the airline will not guarantee it's arrival if checked. In addition, by home owners insurance will cover the cost of the instrument, but that is a moot point since they are extremely difficult to find right now (try finding one on ebay...). I know the odds of the airline losing the bass are really low and I am probably worrying for no reason, but still... Anyway, I was hoping to get some input from those of you who have experience traveling with your instrument.
