When it comes to keeping your new guitar protected sometimes you just can’t win forever; I mean you have anything from the weather getting to it and completely ruining that beautifully sculpted wood, to Billie Joe getting hold of it and someone reminding him it’s time to go, not a pretty sight either way. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t at least try to protect it from disaster. Here are five great tips for giving your new baby the best chance for a good long life.
So you just bought a new guitar and it’s hard to imagine spending any more money at this point, right? I mean, you’ve already stretched your budget just a little to get that next best guitar. It’s especially hard if you have a salesman trying to upsell you on every little knickknack he has on the rack. The truth is, you don’t need every little toy or even the most expensive ones, but there are some accessories every beginner guitarist needs.
When it comes to traveling with your guitar on an airplane, it’s certainly become a hassle these past few years. Restrictions for carry-on luggage and cost-cutting measures by the airlines have limited what is allowed to be brought on board.
I’ve traveled with my guitar all over the world. It has been in a hard guitar case thousands of miles on countless airplanes, trains, buses and taxis.
It has also traveled in a padded case just down the street to a gig or the local guitar store.
In both cases (ha! unintentional pun) my guitar made it safely to my destination.
