I took my Gibson J45 on a 1,200 mile drive for a family 4th of July vacation just so I wouldn't be jonesin'.....

Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have in, IMO.

If irritation occurs

discontinue use.

What you need is a ukulele.

A cheap uke, like a Waterman. They're made of polycarbonate, which means a hot car, or the sand on the beach, will not affect it.

A uke is tuned just like the top four strings on a guitar, so you already know the chords.

Available in many colors--even psychedelic multi-color swirl.

I'm renting a place in Michigan for a month, brought 1 guitar, an amp and pedal board. I also brought a neck that I plan to refret with a friend. In retrospect I wish I just brought my Yamaha CSF1M parlor.

It's just a guitar, not rocket science.

I can't be without a guitar. I had bought an acoustic to keep at my in-laws house (where we spend at least 6 weeks a year) but I'm really an electric player and I wasn't happy with it. So I just sold the acoustic and bought a Yamaha THR 5 (my second one) to keep at the in-laws place.

FWIW, I fly with an electric in a Mono Guitar Sleeve whihc is thin and not heavy but offers great protection. I bring in the cabin if I can, obviously but I would accept gate check if necessary.

"wish I just brought my Yamaha CSF1M parlor."

That's what it's for ain't it? The gig bag it comes with is pretty substantial too.

I have a few instruments that can take a good bit of abuse. The Kala Waterman is one, great for a canoe, also can serve as an emergency paddle. I also have the Gold Tone Little Gem uke that is mostly acrylic with a maple neck. Also a Klos carbon fiber guitar that breaks down and can handle a lot of stress.

^ Plywood Yamaha acoustic +1.

Friend of mine used to take one to the beach in Santa Monica. He'd stick in the sand standing up so he could keep an eye on it while he went swimming.

They have three versions of this Yamaha, the CSF1M has a solid top with the laminated, aka plywood, back and sides. They offer one with all solid wood and all laminate too. My local Ma and Pa music store has the all solid wood version, I'm not sure it's worth the extra cash, but my ears aren't as good and others.

I paid a busker in Cabo $20 to play his guitar for a bit. I sat in with a reggae band in Jamaica for the same purpose. I Got's to play!

I'm at our getaway place in Bar Harbor, Maine, which I've preloaded with 4 guitars. The amp collection is thin (just a Microcube) but I usually use one of the two acoustics.

So far this summer, I've played some songs at an extended-family dinner, then had a little acoustic jam with my wife's friend who turned out to be a folkie, armed with the old folk bible "Rise Up Singing." And when I'm not hiking or cooking, I'm working on my setlist for a community arts event in September. Good times.

I'll miss mine if I'm flying. I won't/don't trust the airlines with my instruments.

If I'm driving I'll take one along.

Well, 14 days in and I’m still not missing my guitars. Hardly listened to any music either ;-)

Going home tomorrow :-(

I played for a couple of hours when I got home and my fingers were actually sore. It'd only been two weeks.

Took a 5 day cruise, the first thing I did when I got home was pick up a guitar.

Yes, I went almost 3 weeks without playing, while taking care of my mom. I "could" have played, but chose not to, for some reason. I didn't really miss it, at the time.
I had to start all over with the callouses.
