This is pretty common, and it's called "gate checking". My friend travels 
his guitar a lot and that's what he always does. He just tells them when he
checks his other baggage that he wants to "gate check" the guitar and 
never gets
any flack. People do this a lot with things like baby strollers, things 
that are
too large to take onboard, but will be needed when going through the 
They return the gate checked things to you when get off the plane (not at 
baggage claim).
