Guitar on the pillion seat
« on: December 08, 2018, 06:50:28 PM »
Hi, are there any guitarists out there? I guess you'll have found the aerodynamic drag on the guitar neck stops you travelling far with it on your back.

I bought this folding guitar and it fits nicely on my pillion seat:

It has a great tone and is well engineered, I love the design of the hinge. It was originally designed to fit aeroplane cabin lockers but I'm not sure if that still applies

Well I don't have any plans to put a hinge in any part of my Bass    :008:

A friend of mine for years carried a Fender Telecaster in a hard case, a Deluxe amp, a mic stand and a gear bag to gigs all over SoCal. He had an old Yamaha XS650. He never had any trouble but I always thought he was kind of crazy.

I am also a bass player, but never used a MC for gigs... you can't carry any kind of usable bass amp on a bike. Too heavy and bulky. If I did carry a bass I would bungee it flat to the passenger seat with the neck sticking out the back like a pickup truck carrying lumber.

I only tend to take this guitar when I'm going on holiday or to jam with friends :)
