Guitar luggage rack

Anyone ever strap a guitar to their bike? Its getting warmer out and I'm trying to get every little bit of ride in I can. Googling now, just looking for any real life experience with it.

I thought about this too, but I think it would be risky... you risk damaging the guitar and maybe the bike... plus you risk the guitar hitting you in an accident too. At least that's what I concluded when I thought about this.

I've ridden with mine. I didn't strap it to the bike, I had it in a gig bag on my back. You'd really want to strap it lengthwise along the bike if possible. Don't know how you'd do that though.

If you want to carry a guitar on your bike and you don't want to risk an old favorite Martin Made an Acoustic for just such shenanigans a few years back called the Backpacker.It is an odd looking little thing but will surprise you with it's sound.It is still in production and still cheap,It ain't no D28 or 35,but for riding and camping it is handy,

If you see it on my bike I did it

I always thought it would be kind of neat to have a guitar hanger like the ones people use for surfboards in Australia... Obviously this would be really dangerous and unstable but it's just a thought!

If you are looking for an electric there is this option, from the looks of it they also have a bass but it looks much bigger
