So I'm heading to college this fall and I'm wondering if there are any tips for keeping a guitar safe at college, besides buying a locked hardcase for it? Chain-locking the hardcase to the bed post? (lol) My Fender strat isn't that valuable, but I'd rather not have it stolen

What did/do you guys use to keep your guitars safe at college?

Thanks

EDIT: Or are there any extra security features some hard cases have that I should know about?

hard cases often come with locks anyway... they're usually enough

Great suggestion, NHECOS

@Dempsey: What if someone just takes the case? They can always break the case open later. Eh, I guess I'm overreacting.

sharks with freakin' lasers on their heads.

Locking case. Chain case to bed. You had the best idea yet.

If only there were big heavy safes that hold elongated objects of value?

I would just keep it out in the open. I might steal a mystery strat in a case, but once I see it has a floyd on it I wouldn't touch the thing.

I just kept my room and window locked and if I was away for a few days, hid them in cases under the bed or at the back of the wardrobe or whatever. Never really worried about it too much. Get insurance though.
