Good evening pit-fiends, it's been a good while since I've had time or subjects to discuss here but at long last I emerge to bother you once more.

The matter of discussion is as follows, myself and wife are heading to Canada in a few days, where we'll be staying for a few weeks. Aside from the usual sightseeing of waterfalls, whales, and trying not to get eaten by bears, I will need to practice my instrument. If only for the sake that it's my job, and I can scarcely not do it, as I tend to become a very annoying human being if I do not play.

I have previously taken my guitar with me, on trips to the USA, and Tenerife. I am however always a bit nervous about being taking my guitar with me in the plane, which thus far I've always managed to do as hand-baggage. I never like taking the risk, though. As should I ever be denied I've scarcely a place to put my instrument, and not the time to return it to home.

So my question in general, where I'm from it's fine and possible to get a 2nd hand guitar for very little cash if you're handy, and I'm looking to find one in Canada - Montreal, where I'll be landing, to be specific. So, a very special question:

If there is someone in this particular city, who has a classical guitar that he or she can miss for a week or two, or knows a pawnshop where I might find one for a reasonable price, or simply rent, would be very welcome. As many suggestions as you can think of, all of which I will eternally grateful for.

...But no blowjobs.

Thanks in advance.

Lots of stores do a monthly rental. That might be an option for you. Be cheaper then buying and get a nicer guitar likely.

Long & McQuade is a nation wide chain that also does gear rentals. I would start there.

I appreciate some of these suggestions greatly, I've send a few e-mails out to see about the possibilities for foreigners in such matters. But I expect the results to solve my problem fine and good. I'll keep you posted, and if anyone has additional suggestions I am still open for them.
