Traveling With Your Guitar

Hi, everyone around the 🌎! I'm so excited to finally be fulfilling a user request that has been made repeatedly over the course of the past year! With the world slowly opening up to travel again, I believe it's time to tackle the question: How can we best travel with our guitars✈️


In addition to the things in the description below, I will be going over 2 of my best tricks for getting my guitar accepted as cabin luggage - one that happens at check-in, and one that happens at boarding. Come check it out! 🚄

Have you ever wondered how guitarists travel to faraway concert destinations with their expensive instruments? With travel opening back up in much of the world, it is high time to honor this user request and answer the question in today's livestream.

Having performed in over 350 concerts on 5 continents over the past two decades, tonebase instructor Mircea Gogoncea will be sharing advice from his own personal experience, as well as some of the tricks that have worked best for him.

This livestream will go over how to find cheap tickets for your concert tours, what to look for when buying airplane tickets, how to choose between airlines and other means of transportation, how to present your guitar at check-in and how to be accepted into the cabin with your guitar as hand luggage.

  • Great live stream Mircea on traveling with the guitar. I have three high end guitars and at some point in two years or so might move to Europe from the US. Any suggestions on how to travel with 3 guitars?

  • I have a guitar with Brazilian Rosewood back and sides (at least I paid for Brazilian rosewood), with no SITES documentation. Is there risk of the guitar being seized if I travel internationally with it?
