So... just back from a trip to Berlin for olive bees birthday bash....... now you know I've had trouble in the past with airline baggage handlers right. So I made a folding guitar to travel as cabin baggage..... then I built a super bullet proof case with wheels...
Well it seems like the baggage boys just can't resist a game of football while they work....
This was a result of a Ryanair flight... those of you who've seen this case in person know it's super tough, so this was no "accident"

that's not cool airlines should have more respect for the instruments. Guess they can't play one so yours gets the blunt end of their frustration.
sorry you had this happen to you

Like I say... it the first time. And amazingly the case took it all, no damage to the guitar at all!
