willdguitar Posted December 19, 2011 Report Share Posted December 19, 2011 Hey everyone, I keep coming back with more and more ES-335 questions. I've always flown back and forth between Austin and New York with my Telecaster (gate-checking and just bringing it on the plane), but with a semi-hollow I'm more concerned than usual. My main concern is that the cargo hold will not be pressurized/heated, and it will crack the hollow portion of the guitar, or strain it enough to cause permanent damage. I ALWAYS loosen the strings before loading it, but would the changing temperatures and pressures damage it? Should I avoid ever gate-checking the ES? Thanks much! EDIT: I'm hoping for some replies pretty quickly, since I'm leaving tomorrow, and if I decide not to bring it I'll drop it off to get some work done. Once again, thanks!
