    Aah!

    Yeah I've seen those. Seems cool.

    I've been thinking about these things too, but I really dont play live often enough to justify the costs

    I had one of the Dixon triples, they are great although pretty expensive, the door is a huge pain in the arse to get on though. I traded it for a Matrix power amp as I didn't think I'd be touring anymore, then landed a gig with a band in a different country a month later.

    This is my solution because I didn't want to pay a huge amount of money for another one, grabbed an SKB keyboard case off the Bay and foam lined it myself. Has wheels and comes exactly to the 23kg luggage limit when loaded. Overall cost was about 25% of a Dixon/Enki

    That is awesome! Do you put something between the fiddles so that they don't "joust" per se when luggage handlers fling the thing around?

    That is a pretty rad solution, especially since you can also fit all the other gear bits in there.

    Same question as Chris though; how do you keep the two axes from rubbin' and scrubbin'?

    The Scott Dixon ones have intrigued me for a while as if I recall you can adjust the neck rests of the bass ones to fit guitars in so my bassist and I could potentially share. Though I've heard that they're susceptible to chipping the paint off of guitars in transit, I also wonder if the foam inserts are compatible with Nitro finished guitars. The Enki ones look cool also, but I don't know if you'd be able to properly get a guitar in the bass version...

    Anyway, this thread is relevant to my interests.

    Lozek's post #10 is a very sexy solution - kodos
    I've been fiddling with a similar concept for some time, great to see it implemented
    Know Thy Self. Know Thy Law. Do What Thou Wilt.
    But it's buggy! - It's software, dummy, it's a feature..
