I travel with all sorts of music equipment as carry on and never have 
had any problems besides some extra sniffing at security (but this 
happens many times anyway).  Usually I have a Motormix and my 
Ashboryr rubber stringed bass which are two peculiar items to airport 
peeple.  I just say I am a musician and they usually try to strike up 
a dorky conversation about music.

Oh, and don't remove the sticker.  I feel it should stay.
