If you’re going to travel safely with something as big as a double bass, you need to reduce the footprint of the instrument and make it easier for TSA & Airline workers to handle.
This Baroque bass was brought in to us to have it’s neck converted to a removable neck to meet the owners travel demands.
Hi Eric and Gary,
Waiting for my flight in LA – the bass breezed through check-in with American Airlines, which is decidedly NOT my usual experience with them. TSA was surly, but careful enough with me standing over them…
