Hi folks. I'm traveling on Southwest this Christmas, and plan on bringing my bass in a gig bag as a carry on. I've already spoken with Southwest flight crews on previous flights as well as read the many informative comments on the subject right here at tb.com. Everyone seems to agree that if the gig bag fits in the overhead bin, then I won't have a problem. The only question I have is one that hasn't yet been answered, even by Southwest. How wide are the overhead bins? Does anyone know? Are different bins with different dimensions used for different planes, or are they all the same? My bass is 35" scale so it's kinda long. It sure would be nice to know beforehand if it'll be too long. If it is, I could always gate check it, but I'm a bit nervous about doing that with just a gig bag for protection.
