Travel Neck - Is It Possible?

Recommended Posts

I travel by air for work and I would like to take a guitar along, but I want a "no-hassle" solution - one that will fit in a standard carry-on.

That means it needs to fit in a 22x14x9 bag. There is no way even the smallest-bodied guitar can do that because of the length of the neck.

Many people just unscrew a bolt-on neck to make a guitar more portable. I am wondering if it would be possible to take this one step further and have a neck that can be split in half and then re-assembled. It would require some kind of two-part trussrod and some way of easily assembling the two neck parts in a way that would be solid and not get in the way of playability.

Any ideas on whether this is feasible and how it could be accomplished?
