Sup guys, Im heading to Montreal this summer for study abroad, and i havent flown commercially in about 6 years. Alot has changed since then. I dont even have a hard case, and im suspecting I will need to get one. But which? Arent there cases with locks or something? Do I need to go through baggage check in? Im not sure about how to get it on the plane, but also how to get it across the border if anyone has done so. I hear they make you pay a deposit, and they MAIL it back to you once you go back home.. of course as long as you still have the guitar. I seriously need some help on this... i cant risk my babies! Oh yea, and im not sure whether to risk my Jackson, or bring the 7 for fun. Jackson is way more valuable, both price wise and sentimental value. The 7 i got cheap, but doesnt have as good of a clean tone. Help!
Forgot to add, its a round trip flight, non stop from dallas to montreal through American Airlines, if that helps.
