The Musician's Gear Acoustic Guitar Gig Bag is covered in the same high-grade twill found on vintage tweed cases. The Elite Series case has 1" of high-density foam keeping your beloved guitar safe. No-scratch interior lining with reinforced panels for extra headstock and bridge protection. The gig bag comes with handy shoulder straps for backpacking and pockets for guitar accessories.
I grabbed this bag to carry around my Ibanez SZ320 electric guitar. The fit is great - it's not too wide and not too long. The pockets in the front aren't too bulky and don't stick out too far, but they're still big enough to carry everything I need - manuscript book, medium-sized songbook, korg guitar tuner, and a 10-foot-long cable.
The handle is sturdy, as are the straps that let you wear the bag as a backpack. Most important - I feel pretty safe carrying my guitar around in this bag because it has padding on both sides, ensuring my guitar will be protected from dents and dings. I don't think it's sturdy enough to drop the case but, let's be honest, only a dolt is going to drop their guitar.
With all these good things, you might wonder why only 3 stars. It's because I get frustrated every time I try to zip the danged thing up. Like I said, the bag is nicely padded. Unfortunately, the padding isn't tucked in as well as it should be and it always gets stuck in the zipper. I have to keep one finger an inch ahead of the zipper, making sure the padding is hidden out of the way. It unzips problem-free 90% of the time, but that other 10%? Holy frustrating, batman.
Of course, I've only ever seen one of these bags (mine), so it could be I just got a bunk bag. Maybe Inspector No. 84 was drunk when he had to inspect my bag. Who knows?
So that's that. Good pockets. Good straps. Great padding. Zipper is dumb.
This is a well constructed, nicely designed guitar gig bag. It has enough padding for day-to-day use and good functional pockets. the back straps could be of better quality, but again it must not be bulky. the current straps are however light and clean in design. the bag's simple design is what makes it work making it not bulky or over-padded. and it's a good price.
Not a lot to say. I've taken my Fender Telecaster on 4 plane rides in this bag and I love it. it's easy to carry, the zippered compartments are not too big and bulky but they carry a lot of extras if you need them. Shoulder straps are not perfect, but I've never seen a guitar softcase with big padded super great backpack straps so not an issue for me. Well padded, that was important to me, even though my Tele is a less expensive, "crafted in Japan" 90's model.
