How NOT to Ship an Instrument

Ship Bad

Do not ship your banjo like this

Please do not ship your banjo like this.

Yes, these really did show up at my repair shop exactly like this.  No box, not fuss, no muss, just the case with an expensive Martin D-28 inside one and a Gibson Earl Scruggs Banjo in the other one.  Yes, they made it in one piece.  No, you should never do this.
