Sometimes you have to get over this 'new forever' syndrome. If it makes people feel better just think of those players who use original Torres or Hauser I guitars that have numerous dings, worn varnish and dirty looking soundboards. No one in their right mind would even contemplate trying to make them look brand new again. Cracks and structural problems are another issue.
I have no experiences with the airport Munich and guitars. I think there are two different aspects. The airport security guards don't really care about the dimensions of your hand luggage but only about security aspects, and it's the airline that cares about the dimensions of your hand luggage. If you know the airline then you can try to google information about carrying musical instruments. I would write a mail to both, the airport security and the airline, and ask them if they accept a guitar (in a soft case) as hand luggage. When you are in Munich and Stuttgart in October or November then you can check if there are guitar concerts. For example the Gitarrentage Vaihingen beginning of November.Sharkbait wrote: ↑Mon Jul 24, 2017 2:57 pm...
Dear Andreas777, if I decide to buy it, I would not ship it to Singapore, but only send to my Munich office. I will pick it up when I go again in October and hand-carry it back to Singapore. Or rather, I will try to arrange with the airline to allow me to hand-carry it back (since I will be in business class), assuming Munich airport lets me through with such a big piece of hand-luggage. Would you (or anyone else in Germany) know how strictly the Munich airport staff enforce the "hand-carry luggage must not exceed the specific dimensions" rules?
