I didn't follow up on this post. Sorry about that, but thanks for the input. From what I read, you keep expensive stuff within eye sight. To me, that's too much work. Between drinking beers with the (one or two) fans and selling merch, I don't see how that is possible. We're doing a short tour (six gigs) in November, and I'm not sure what to bring. The venues are by contract responsible for arranging a safe place to park. Not that I trust that one bit. I'll probably end up bringing a BC Rich mockingbird and an Edwards LP, but it would be so much better with the Hamer standard and the double neck. Looking at ebay I'm even hesitant to bring the Gibson the V (bought from from someone on this forum a while back). Guitars are easy to carry. If my amp rack is stolen, I'll at least give some credit to the thieving bastard; It's heavy as shit.
It doesn't look like we're passing through Gothenburg. That seems to be THE city in Europe where bands lose their stuff.
