I once went on a sea kayaking trip with some friends to a small island off the west coast of Canada. One friend, a diehard musician type, brought his guitar along wrapped in seventeen garbage bags and lashed to the back of his kayak. How much easier it would have been to bring along an inflateable (there is an "e" isn't there) guitar: the Fender Inflatercaster.

       Yes, there is an 'e'. But only one. Your friend might wish to try one of the several 'travelling' guitars available. I have a Pignose Traveler, which is cute, useful, and battery-powered. (It, however, *does* have two 'E's. </guitarists' joke>)

       Easily made by taking a standard air guitar and covering with plastic.

       Rod's Tiger, I will reward you with the respectful groan you were looking for.

       Baked. At least twice.   

       Chrysalis Guitars makes modular guitars that include an inflatable body.   

       Francois and Bernard Baschet have made inflatable guitars since the 1950s.   

       See the links.

       your musician friend should have purchased the guitar sea kayak. Same as other sea kayak, but has six strings that can be pulled out/retracted over the opening to create a very large and long guitar. I bet that's not baked!
