After the recent purchase of a beautiful Dean acoustic electric guitar, I contemplated what type of case
to buy for my new axe, which I intended to take on a trip with me. Short on cash, as I was traveling to Africa and just bought a new guitar, I thought about going with a soft case and carrying my instrument on board the plane. There was a looming possibility of full flights, which meant I'd have to check my new guitar, in a minimally protective soft case
Following much contemplation, I splurged and spent $150 on a custom hard case
, so that I could check my guitar. As luck would have it, my instrument did not make it to the airport in Zimbabwe on the same day as I arrived. It apparently missed a plane change in London, and I had to wait 24 hours to retrieve my instrument. A day went by, then two, then five, and my guitar had yet to arrive. Finally on the eighth day of my stay in Zimbabwe, my guitar was delivered to my residence at last.
