EVERY MUSICIANS NIGHTMARE **UPDATED**

1/8/2013

Remember the story of Dave Schneider - It has a happy ending!

A musician’s worst nightmare came true at Detroit’s Metro Airport.

Dave Schneider, lead singer of the band the Zambonis, cares so much about his classic 1965 Gibson ES-335 that he carries it on board.

But recently, while boarding a flight from Buffalo to Detroit, he was stopped and told he had to check the guitar. 

 

Here's video from the airport: 

Schneider tells Yahoo News that “As his feet touched the ground in Detroit, Schneider said he already knew something had gone horribly wrong. Sure enough, he wrote on Facebook, a "musicians worst nightmare came true."

There at the gate was his guitar — stuck between the service elevator and a loading dock rail making "this crazy sound" of "metal on metal."

We talked with Dave after the show on Tuesday -- and he's getting a NEW guitar from Gibson PLUS the original (which wasn't destroyed - just damaged) is being repaired for free!
