Re: Hows the best way to ship a guitar in its case
Usually I will put some packing material down first, either crinkled up newspaper or packing peanuts or foam, then put the case in the add more packing material, newspaper, styrofoam peanuts or those air bags, and if it's a box I got with all the original packing material (which is usually just a piece of cardboard to hold the top of the case in place) I will use that then tape up the box and send it. When I worked at a music store that is better than 90% of what got shipped to us from the factory. Martin just puts the guitar in the case and shrink wraps it to a full length piece of cardboard, Gibson just uses the case and the top piece of cardboard to stop the guitar moving side to side, Fender just used boxes that were the same size as the case. Washburn would send the guitars no case, they would put 6 guitars in individual thin cardboard boxes then put the 6 boxes in one big box and ship them out. My EB/MM was just the case in a box, no packing material.
