Was that an answer to my question about needing a flag, because that's the only thing it seems to fit?

I might know a guy with a music store that would give you the fellow inmate deal on one if you want.

Is that it on top in the soft case? That's pretty small!

I may take you up on that offer sometime, maybe in the spring. After this trip at the end of the month, I won't be traveling much and won't really need it for a while... I did play around with one at GC a couple of weeks ago, and it sounded pretty good (this model had the Humbucker pickups, which I love)!

It's on top of the yellow bag. I had fully expected to be detained going into Canada , but the border guy asked me what was in the case and when I said it was a travel guitar he just said "nice".

I've carried a uke, never a guitar. Came down to sound quality, price, and size. The Martin backpacker is pretty underwhelming, and the really good travel guitars are pricey. A decent uke didn't break the budget, and you can restring the high G to a low G if you want more of a guitar sound for finger picking. Played like a guitar with a capo on 5th fret. Plus kids and women think they're cool. And you can do this with one (well, not right away): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qw6YL_l2YxA

Here's how I did it.

Two strings, no frets.














Disassembled







The neck rode back here. The body fit in the topbox since it was flat and didnt take up much space.








Demo tape

Well, I did end up taking my electric guitar in its hard case with me this past weekend. 300mi each way and I barely knew it was back there...

Laugh

I wouldn't bring one; but that's because I can't play one.

Nice! Man, that's a lotta overhang. I've been having the same thing rattle in my head as well. I hate not having a guitar with me.
