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.
