‘It’s 3am and I’ve simply arrived in Darwin. I’m working with the unimaginable (Indigenous musician) Yirrmal this weekend,” Minson wrote on social media.

“Qantas baggage handlers have done their very best during this trip. They have reached a new personal low point in my 40+ year tour of this great country.

“I was told to go online and complain, so that’s what I do!”

Miraculously, the Maton, value hundreds of {dollars}, was fully unhurt.

“Cases can be changed, but this guitar was built specifically for me to play slide,” continued Minson.

“It was a great relief to find it intact when I opened what was left of the road case.”
