HSC: safe luggage check in for a ABG

  1. There's a chance I'll have to bring an ABG from the US to Brazil, Delta Airlines.
    Since it is a pretty big instrument, I'll probably have to check it in.
    Is there any HSC that will fit an ABG, and won't cost three times the value of the instrument?
    I searched and found many topics about airline travel, but anything about ABGs.

    Short answer, yes. If you Google "acoustic bass guitar case" you'll find them at MF and other online retailers.
    I'd check your bass manufacturer first for a part #.

    I have two Takamine ABG's with HSC's. One case has the Takamine plaque, the other an Alvarez plaque. They're not interchangeable, but they're both made by TKL. I would guess a similar thing with cases for the Ibanez and Dean ABG's.
