Hi, anyone have experience with checking in guitars with Qantas domestic? Apparently they charge but its not clear on their website or through their 'help' service. If my ticket says that I'm allowed a small carry on piece of luggage plus a personal item to be checked in will I be charged for checking in a guitar case as my personal item?

there are ways for musicians to get around excess baggage fees for musical equipment now.

Yeah if you are an APRA member you can get double the allowance on Qabtas and Virgin. My band flew to Sydney a few weeks ago with 2 guitars, bass, keyboard, pedal case along with cymbals and a large drum case no problem or extra fees.
