Travelling for Work

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by hstiles, Nov 20, 2002.


  1. How many of you have to travel overseas or long distances for work? (and not for gigs).

    I was wondering if you took a bass with you when you went.

    This may not really answer your question, but I've travelled extensively for the last 10 years or so with my job. This has included much overseas stuff and has been through phases of 100% of my working life (out Monday back Friday every week for years).

    I've never taken a bass with me, but if I was going to do it again, I'd consider buying an Ashbory. I could not imagine the thought of carrying a fullsize bass along with my clothes/ laptop/ work papers etc and the usual run around at the airports. If I could get something that would fit into a suitcase then that would be different.

    The alternative would be to keep a bass at my destination.
