As of 5th Dec I'll be getting hitched to my beloved who puts up with so much of my guitar related obsessiveness.
Obviously as a thankyou for all her patience I want to take a guitar with me to play on our honeymoon.
We are going to the Maldives so it will be a pretty much lie around doing nothing type break for two weeks. Yes I know there are other things
that you should generally be doing whilst on honeymoon, let's take that as a given. Rather than take a big pile of books to fill in the gaps between the other stuff, I want to take a guitar and work on my chops.
However I've no experience of taking guitars on planes, so I'm after a bit of advice.
My options as I see it:
Take my acoustic: I have no special attachment to it, it's just a £250 Takamine. The problem with this is that it is too large to take on as carry on so I will have to risk it in the checked in baggage.
Buy a folding travel guitar: This would likely be small enough to carry on, but I've no experience with them. Are they any good?
Buy a really
cheap acoustic/electric: One that would not bother me in the slightest if it got smashed to bits by baggage handlers. Guthrie Govan has gone on record saying that 5 mins spent practising on a really bad acoustic with an egg slicer action is worth 2 hrs on a shred machine, so maybe this is an option.
Any advice folks???
