    Gate checking is the way to go. When you check in, take your guitar with you as a "carry on". Go through security and make sure you don't have dangerous things in your case. When you board your flight they will either let you put it into the overhead if the flight isn't full or they will gate check it which means they put a tag on it and then the ticket or baggage person there will load it on last and take it off first so when you get off the plane after landing they hand it to you. I always just say "Please be careful, that guitar is my pride and joy." Just travelled last week with my J-45 acoustic. Absolutely no problem.
    If you really want to check it in as baggage, which I've done as well, talk to the handler when you check it in and put a fragile sticker on the case as well as give them the same pride and joy story. They have fragile stickers for you. I travel a lot and these 2 methods have never let me down.

    Does anyone know a competent luthier in the San Jose, CA area?

    I have a friend who's having issues with string breakage. Apparently, he's almost constantly breaking strings, particularly the high E string. He's said his teacher has worked on the bridge and filed it a bit and he's tried numerous strings. I'd like to help him find someone in that area that he can take his guitar to in order to get a second opinion. I don't know the competency level of his teacher.


    No but I know an incredibly competent one in LA though. Guitar Groomer. Avi is the best.

    My son had a tonic clonic seizure when he was 9. It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed.

    A friend told me of a client who lived in Malibu who could fly to his company's HQ in Phoenix in the amount of time it takes him to get to his office in Los Angeles. Hope ya' got lots of good music to listen to while sitting in traffic.

    I've had the most difficult time getting out of town this summer.
    My son and I made it as far as the Eastern Sierras for camping and fishing. Los Angeles is becoming a distant memory. You said you took a job there? Hey, why not work in Santa Maria. We need good doctors. That's what you do right?

    Hey Phil,
    How did the show at Creekside go?
    It's hard for me to get out of Santa Maria. I usually don't like to do things alone. Kind of want my wife or a friend with me when I venture out.
    I will say this, I'll get to one of your shows in 2012. Hope all is well,

    Hi Tman,
    Thanks for the kind words! I can't say I know much about the J45 Custom Rosewood, except for the fact that it's a great guitar! I have some 'Bird trivia up my sleeve as I played them for years and found their origins interesting...if I find out any more on your J45 I'll let you know!

    sorry I missed your gig last night.
    It was my daughter's Christmas performance.
    Can't miss that now can I.
    Anyway, hopefully the 29th of December I'll be available. That's a Friday at the Creekside, right?
    Hope last night went well for you.
