I've had a instrument from 1929 "tagged as suspect luggage and carried
away for termination within 30 minutes if not claimed by the owner" so
I totally get your point, Jeff!

I'll bring a guitar in a sturdy Gator case to check in and a small
second instrument in the cabin, just in case.

I bring two pair of socks. And a small bag of white powder in the
guitar case - detergent!

BTW, I'm looking forward to see your sustainer equipped guitars, Mark
and Jeff. I'd like to get such a pick-up for my fretless guitar ASAP.
Some years ago I bought a the mechanical vibrator driven Sustaniac-C
but that turned out to be a mistake as the magnet lost power and it
hardly works at all now. But since my fretless Tele can't handle the
magnetic waves from a sustaine pick-up I need to switch guitar before
I even start looking at sustainer pickups. The French Vigier
Surfretter looks as a very good instrument for the money:

life and it always surprises my that no one builds fretless necks!
