We also got an email this afternoon from Paul Wargaski, who came up with another interesting way to transport a bass. He is a violin maker in Chicago with a unique sense of humor.

“I came across the Have Bass Will Travel contest late in the game, but thought you would get a kick out of this.  After running into an awful bass rental in Hawaii I realized I needed a better solution for traveling with Tangleweed, my bluegrass band.  The ‘Suitbass’ is the essence of complicating a simple idea, and a solution for what to do with your dirty laundry on the road.”

Paul even uses it on stage with the band.

Thanks again to everyone who submitted an entry in the contest, and to our sponsors for their generous contributions to our list of prizes!

To cast your vote (one per customer), just visit our Have Bass Will Travel poll site.
