Oh the musicality!
Dave Schneider had always been able to carry his classic 1965 Gibson ES-335 guitar onto the plane with him before.
But for some undisclosed reason, employees of Delta Airlines told him he would have to check it- even after he offered to buy the instrument its own seat!
There are no words for how devastated the guitarist was when he found this!
Ch-ch-check out the video to see the estimated $2000 worth of damage done to the priceless instrument by a loading dock service elevator!
Music aficionados take heed- what you're about to see is pretty gruesome!
Only after Dave's story started to go viral did Delta Airlines finally return his calls and e-mails in an attempt to be reimbursed.
Of course, some things can never be replaced. Oh, we have to look away!
