So I'm home on leave and was thinking of trying to bring my electric guitar back with me. I want to bring it as a checked bag (can check 3 bags free) since of course free is a lot better than trying to ship it across the country. I only have a soft guitar bag for it though. It's not an expensive guitar (like $150) but I'd rather have it than buy a new one right now because I'm not huge into guitar, it's just fun to have around.
Now stuff in my bags always get broken when I check them (usually minor, plastic things). So if I wrapped my guitar in bubble wrap inside the soft case and maybe throw a few shirts on the top and bottom, do you think it'd make it back in one piece (I'd loosen or take off the strings). That way I can just ship the amp over and not end up paying a lot in shipping.
Ideas? I'd buy a hard case, but it's really not worth it. I just thought it'd be nice to bring over if I can do it for free.
