This beautiful jazz guitar is owned by Mr. Dieter Jagiela. He happens to be one of Northeast Ohio's better blues guitarist. He has toured internationally with some of music's finest. On one of the flights back from a tour this guitar had met a very unfortunate accident.
It's hard to tell from the first couple of pictures ,but the neck was severely broken due to bad baggage handling at the airport. We all have heard of this happening , but here is positive proof that it is extremely important to take every precaution available to protect your instrument when you are travelling. I have even heard of musicians paying for an extra seat so that the instrument does not have to be subjected to the dreaded "baggage handlers". In this case it might of prevented this accident.
