You should be fine with a 60-80 Liter pack.

I don't know about the whole guitar case thing....If I were to be gone a year I think I would be tempted to bring my laptop as well, but it all depends on how you'll be traveling and what you'll be doing.

In brisbane airport I saw a guy wrangling a regular pack, day pack on his front, a surfboard under one arm, and his guitar case in the other hand. so it can be done....

^yea, ANYTHING can be done. A friend and I traveled around Europe with a two man kayak for six weeks - most of the time in it, but sometimes carrying it
