Hello there name is Anthony. I got myself last month a gator flight case for my Fender Jazz (Mexican) bass. I will be flying from Hamiliton to Moncton. Question is for my bass, should I tune down the strings a bit or keep them in there normal format E,A,D,G. If I need to tune them down what should I tune them down to? Because I am afraid of the bass's neck snaping. If you peoples need to look at the flight case here it is. http://www.music123.com/Gator-GPE-Bass-Case-i11095.music People told me to tune my strings down others told me not to. I am right now confused i even called up the company there like well its your choice but even we don't really know a bit. So I am asking you guys to please tell me what do you do with your basses that are in there flight cases. Please help me I would greatly appricate it.. Like my bass feelins pretty good in there like looks snug fits well, should I do anything to the neck? but the neck where it should be position to rest fits just perfectly. I didn't know where to post this so I thought posting it here would help. Yes I even tried using the search engine. But didn't run into anything luck a bit. So please somebody help me. Thankyou for your time. Sorry for not puting this in right area of forum.. its 1:23 am and I am not thinking that well that much now.
