    Used for a Cordoba Mini II

    Bought this for a Cordoba Mini II nylon string guitar. It is bigger than needed for this guitar but works OK. The custom fit case for the Cordoba Mini II was as expensive as the guitar. This was an economical option that protects the guitar. I needed a case for winter to keep the guitar from being damaged by low humidity. I use a dampit humidifier and this case.

    It fits my Fender FA-450CE Acoustic Bads

    I have had a hard time as many do, finding something to protect my acoustic bass. This works for my fender FA-450CE. It’s tunig keys stick out quite far making it hard to fit into cases. It’s not a hard case, but it seems to be made well and it does what it promises to do.

  3. Amazon Customer

    correct size

    Hard to find a case to fit his acoustic,electric bass guitar.Yay! this one fits.

  4. P

    suites the purpose

    nice quality

  5. Rob Solo

    Fits the Mitchell T239B acoustic bass

    It fits the Mitchell T239B line of bases. It’s not a well padded bag but it does the job. It has the backpack like shoulder straps.

  6. J. D. Lynch

    Great gig bag for a mini acoustic

    Bought this gig bag for my new mini Sigma acoustic guitar. Perfect fit. Well made.

  7. electron jockey

    Great for acoustic bass

    This case was a great fit for my Fender CB-60SCE acoustic bass. Not frilly, just gets the job done.

  8. Hector

    Works well for my Ibanez acoustic bass

    This didn’t fit my instrument perfectly. It fit the body of it just fine, but has a lot of “bagginess” around the neck area. It still holds the bass and protects it well enough. I’d recommend it if you need it

  9. Chuck from Chicago


    I recently purchased a Harley Benton Hollowbody HB-60-WB MODEL bass. At time of purchase Harley Benton had no gig bag or case available for this bass. I looked all over for a suitable gig bag and took a chance on this. This bass fits in fine. Should be fine for a Jack Cassidy, Gretsch or other basses of that form. It is a little bit bigger than I would like but not by much. Not the best gig bag I have ever had but not the worst. The price is not that great for what it is but in time of need it fills the bill. This is not going anywhere but my studio anyway and that is about all this bag would be suited for.

    Nice gig bag

    This bag is not fancy. It is a slightly padded case that will keep the guitar protected from dust and from a possible scratch or mark if you should happen to bump or brush past something while transporting your instrument. It has backpack style straps for convenient, hands-free carrying. It is perfect for its intended use, and its construction is high quality. A good value for the price.

  11. stephen b. lewis

    Fine bag, perfect for Gretsch Jim Dandy.

    The bag is just what I expected for a reasonable price. The five stars are not to suggest it is the best of all possible bags, just that it is exactly what I wanted. The padding is sufficient to take this to jam sessions. I got it for the Gretsch jim dandy. As others have said, it is a perfect fit for the gretsch. I am pretty sure it would not fit a longer guitar, especially a 40′ guitar that one person has asked about in the questions.

    It’s okay

    It’s a fine case for the money. If I’m real honest it’s not top quality materials. It provides mediocre protection, yet adequate for now.

    Good bag for acoustic bass

    It’s a good bag and the padding is adequate for everyday use–probably not the sort of thing you’d want for heavy use or travel. It’s just about the only gig bag we’ve found that fits an acoustic bass. Be warned–don’t load up the pocket with heavy stuff like ring binders or pedals–we’re on the second of these bags now because my husband did just that with the first. Adding a second luggage strap (we cannibalized the one from the broken bag) makes it backpackable and less prone to get stuck in doorways. Turn the hooks away from your body so they don’t get pressed open and cause a strap to come off while you’re wearing it.

    The bag is loose on standard acoustic bass guitar.

    It works but I expected a better fit.

  15. Bob E.

    A Deal at $25.00 (twice)

    Really nicely padded case (10 mm thick) that fits my new (42″ long, 16 widest, 4″ thick) Jasmine S34C cut-away acoustic. The zipper runs around the outside seam instead of splitting down the middle of the case as some do. The inside has high needle count fabric that should protect a guitar without scratching it. The double slider zipper allows for easy closure. Just a small gator logo at the top, leaving plenty of room to cover the rest of the case with other decals if one is so inclined. I liked the thing so much I bought one for my latest guitar acquisition from Amaon.

    flimsy gig bag

    I intended to purchase a more robust and sturdy gig bag for my 11 years old Larrivee parlor guitar.The stock gig bag from Larrivee is very light and has quite a delicate outer shell.Perhaps their newer gig bags offer more protection,this one was made in 1999.I have owned little Martin guitars in the past for use as a travel guitar.The gig bags that came with the little Martins were much more sturdy with better padding.During many flights in the US and Canada I felt secure that the little Martin’s gig bag protected the guitar very well.And it performed that function very well.Particularly when it was crammed in among the heavy carry on luggage stored the overhead storage compartments.IMO,the older Larrivee case would have not been able to withstand the above treatment and I am certain my guitar would have been vulnerable to damage.So I received the Gator mini acoustic gig bag, expecting an improvemnt over the Larrivvee gig bag.Well, it is not any better.The lining is flimsy and the overall padding is much inferior to the gig bag of the Little Martin’s.It has no stiffness,no “bumber” guards and doubles over on itself without the guitar inside.Even after you have boarded an aircraft you can be asked to “gate-check” your guitar and be denied the ability to store it overhead.It then gets loaded like a checked bag.That’s the reason I always pack my guitar with extra bubblewrap -for that potential situation.With such a flimsy outer shell on the Gator mini ,I would be very concerned about puncture of the shell during the “gate -check “process.I suppose the Gator bag would be adequate for carrying your parlor to a gig.Or just to have a basic covering against the elements.One probably needs to spend in the $50-$100 range for a truly durable bag that would have a better chance of protecting your parlor guitar in the majority of travel situations.

    Great quality for the price

    Holds our guitar great and is great quality for the money. Probably wouldn’t want to take on the road with you, but to protect at home and during light transit, it works just fine.

  18. Ger

    Fits flamenco guitar

    It’s amazing how it fits my Yamaha flamenco guitar. The bag is perfect.

  19. John D.

    A good deal, just make sure it fits.

    I received the bag and stretched it out on my bed. At first I was impressed with the sturdiness but worried because, even though I knew my guitar was on the small side this bag looked like it was too small. I opened it up, unzipped the zippers all the way around and proceeded to stuff my gutar in the bag. Well, it fits like a glove, which is a good thing but if you have a guitar that measures more than 40″ long or more than 5″ thick you may need a larger bag. Mine is exactly 40″ tall x 4 1/4″ deep x 15″ wide (widest at bottom) and it fills the bag up just like the picture shows. It has some decent padding, and a zippered compartment for a music book, picks, etc… but not much else. Overall I think it’s well made with good zippers and padding. If you have a guitar like mine or smaller it’s a good choice.

    Excellent for the price

    Fit my acoustic electric bass perfect and feels nice and sturdy, the straps rock and make it convenient to carry!

  21. David

    Great bag for the price!

    A few weeks ago I picked up an Ibanez PF2 tenor guitar and I needed a case for it. I picked this one up and can confirm that the PF2 fits perfectly. It seems well made and the zippers work smoothly. It has a conventional handle as well as two adjustable straps so it can be worn like a backpack. It also has a front zippered pouch for sheet music and other supplies. It is flush with the front of the case, so I don’t think it will take real bulky items, but it’s big enough to take sheet music or a small music book without folding it.

    Good bag for the price

    I think overall this bag is pretty well made. I was concerned after reading reviews of other bags in this price range, but think for the price range this was a great purchase for my son’s 3/4 Laguna guitar. Seams and zipper seem well constructed. There is an exterior pocket for storage. The padding is not super thick, but I did not expect anything other than light protection in this price range. The guitar fit in there perfectly, with just the right amount of room. There is a single shoulder strap that can be switched to fit a left or right shouldered carry. The only reason I cannot give 5 stars is I really wish they could’ve gone the extra step and put another strap to make it more a backpack style carrier. The only soft cases I could find with backpack straps were much more expensive, so I think this is a reasonable option at a great price.

    Good quality for the price

    My long scale fender acoustic electric bass guitar fits, and the quality is good. It should last a long time. Great for short easy travel.

  24. Ed Arlington


    I’m quite pleased with this gig bag, I got the mini acoustic size. It took awhile to find a decent gig bag on amazon, as there are a ton of cheaper quality ones. This came in the biggest box we have ever seen (I got the mini acoustic for my 1/2 size classical guitar). Has a zippered pocket in front for extra strings, tuner, capo, books etc. Fits my Yamaha 1/2 size classical guitar perfectly, you might be able to squeeze a 3/4 size classical guitar in there. Padding is sufficient and the bag comes with backpack straps you can cinch up and make them out of the way. Overall I’m happy with my purchase and would recommend this to anyone.

    Perfect fit for my Ibanez Talman acoustic electric!

    I was looking for a smaller gig bag to fit my Ibanez Talman acoustic electric guitar. Ibanez only makes a hard case for this and because of its body shape it was hard to find something that would fit snuggly. It would slide all over the place in a standard gig bag because it’s only a 39 in guitar. This is the only one I could find with the correct measurements. It’s a perfect fit!

    Light weight and rugged

    Got this gig bag for Granddaughter’s 1/2 size acoustic guitar.

  27. Gerry Scott-Moore

    Super Light, Capable of Backpack Carry

    I schlepped this thing across Europe for 6 weeks with a parlor guitar inside. Worked like a charm. Very light–which was my most significant concern. Only one thin pocket on the face; generally suited to storing a few folios of sheet music. I used it for a songlist and a stash for a heavy scarf since the weather was given to rapid changes.It comes with a shoulder strap, which doesn’t seem indicated above, only the rings to which a strap would be affixed. But it’s there. The short rubber part that makes contact with your shoulder, is not the greatest, but it will do. It can be shifted to another ring for right-handers. I had another strap from something else year’s ago, and so *added* it to the configuration: Viola, it’s suitable for carrying “no hands” like a back pack.

    Too big for 3/4 guitar

    I bought this for a Laguna 3/4 size guitar, which is about exactly the same size as a Taylor or Martin 3/4. The Taylor and Martin came with bags that fit them very well. This one is almost big enough for a full size guitar, but not quite. Would probably fit a 7/8 size guitar better. It has a ton of extra room with the 3/4 in it though. A lot of reviewers seemed to like that about it, but I prefer the bag to be about the same size as the guitar. Otherwise what’s the point of getting such a little guitar if it’s swimming in a huge bag? Other than that it’s decent. The pocket is big enough to fit a bunch of stuff in. The strap is adequate but the buckle digs into your shoulder. Decent manufacturing quality.

  29. Amazon Customer

    Good generic case. Worth the price.

    It is a generic gig bag for an acoustic bass. It has to be large to fit a wide range of different basses so it is not custom made for my bass. I knew this going in and just wanted something to cover my bass when I play at friends houses. I did not pay a lot for my bass and I do not gig with it so I do not need a great case. It is well made but not thickly padded. I consider it exactly what I needed and expected. There is not a large selection of cases for acoustic basses in the price range I was willing to pay.

    Perfect fit for Tacoma Thunderchief ABG with room to spare

    I bought this case for my Tacoma Thunderchief Acoustic Bass Guitar (4 string)I have a hardshell case, but wanted a soft case for a quick jam situation that didn’t need all the protection. For those of you who have this bass you know it’s a big boy and the case makes it even bigger…kinda awkward when carrying around.measurements were approx- 49 1/2 ” full length top to bottom- 22″ body top to bottom- 17 1/2″ lower bout widthThe bass fit in this soft gig bag no problem, i’ve been searching for a while i’m happy i decided to grab this, especially for the reasonable price. If you’re truly worried about getting your bass all dinged up or “hurt” no gig bag will really full protect it. This one is sufficient for your minor bumps and bruises, but for the rest….GET A HARDSHELL CASE.with that said, great bag, does the job

    Great Case for a reasonable price

    This is the second case I ordered for my Yamaha CG 102 classic acoustic guitar. The first case had thicker foam but it smelled of a solvent. This case fits perfect! I was concerned after reading about different sizes in guitars. My guitar is 39 1/2 inches long, 14 1/2 inches at the widest part of the body and 4 inches deep. There is some room in the case beyond all of these dimensions. Great case, the single shoulder strap is removable, nice pocket in front for music and a good carry handle. I have a stand for the guitar at home so I pick it up to practice but the case is needed to protect it going back and forth to lessons. Yes, my guitar is inexpensive, it is my first but I felt bad when it accidentally hit the edge of my car door which resulted in a small dent. This inexpensive case would have prevented this damage. Great case, great price.

    Decent fit for Luna parlor guitar

    I got the Classical size for my Luna parlor guitar. The body of the case is wider than it needs to be for this particular instrument but length is perfect. Seems sturdy, will get the job done!

    May NOT fit your guitar. Dimensions listed by Amazon are incorrect!

    Despite the listing shown (40.9 x 15.7 x 5.2 inches) this case is NOT even 4 inches depth. It does not fit a Cordoba Fusion Acoustic/Classical/Electric guitar. Had to return. It seems like a nice case but it may not fit your guitar because the listing is not correct.

  34. J

    Jim Dandy

    Nice case as expected from Gator. It would be nice if the foam was a little thicker however it should be adequate for my needs. Now for the fit! There is a lot of confusion about the size needs for different guitars. This case is the perfect size for the Gretsch JIM DANDY which is a parlor size guitar. By calling it a mini you can’t help but think it is correctly sized for the Mini Martin, Baby Taylor, Mini Yamaha, Little Hohner, and so on but not so this case will be a bit big as well as long for those guitars. I hope this description helps others in what should be an otherwise simple purchase. And don’t forget to measure your guitar before ordering.

    Nice bag, tight fit

    The bag is nice, zippers are fine and there’s adequate padding. The only concern is that I have the bass pictured in the ad, a Dean, and it is a tight fit at the headstock. The points on the headstock will likely wear through the end of the bag eventually. The bag fits very snugly around the body. For the price I’m fine with it. The official Dean bag is half what I paid for the bass on Craigslist, so I wasn’t going there.

    Fits the Recording King Dirty Thirties

    Classic Size – Good bag for what I needed. I won’t give 5 stars to something so ordinary because I don’t “Love” guitar bags…ever. BUT, good bag. I have a little Recording King RPH-05 Dirty Thirties parlor to play while sitting around, watching the tv. Got that for 99 elsewhere. So invesing in Recording King’s $46 bag for a $99 guitar made no sense…. plus it’s never in stock. This one has enough padding a quality for the little RK, and very nice fit…not skin tight but good enough.

  37. C. Smith

    Fits perfect for my Takamine Jasmine S35

    When I received this gig bag Gator GBE Dread I was a little worried earlier if it would fit but when I received it everything was fine. The quality of the bag is very good. It has some nice padding inside and the zippers work really smooth. The seam work on it is really tight there no flaws. This fits just right for the Takamine Jasmine S35. The pocket is pretty nice size on the outside, you can even almost put your 15″ laptop in it in a upright position with the exception having 2″ above and outside of the zipper plus your song books. It has padding on the inside pocket so it would not harm the guitar or your laptop. It also has a warranty that comes with it.I really like having just one shoulder strap instead of the back pack method and you can switch the strap over for a left handed person or right handed by clipping to either side. The price is very reasonable for a quality gig bag.

    Perfect fit, but smells really bad.

    It smells horrible. I am going to have to search for ways to get the smell out of this bag.It is a perfect fit for my KALA-TEM Tenor Ukulele. The accessory pouch is a good size too.I rate it 4 stars. If it didn’t smell bad, I would have given it 5 stars.

    Some coverage, but not super cushy

    I like this bag for the price I paid. I’d purchased a similar one for my parlor size and decided it was worth having a light weight dread sized bag – for when I didn’t want to use my dread hard case (which is very protective, but also pretty heavy to carry). Gator is a good brand and seems durable enough. I like the back strap and extra large pocket.However, I do feel like the padding on the top is a bit thin. If I brush up against the bag I can feel the bridge and strings through the fabric very easily. I feel like I’d want to drape a hand towel across the body – just to give it a little extra padding/protection. The minimal padding surprised me, as the parlor size I’d already acquired from Gator seemed to have more cushion – couldn’t feel the bridge through the fabric.I’ll definitely reserve this case for short travel or temporary protection when I’m rotating through the guitars I’m playing.

    Standard gig bag protection. Works for a 12-string acoustic

    I actually bought this for an Epiphone Texan 12 12-string acoustic guitar. I couldn’t find a case or gig bag to fit it – it’s an extra long guitar, even for a 12 string.That all said, the case is nice, exactly what I would expect from Gator. I wouldn’t go checking my guitar in as luggage with this case, but for keeping it protected at home, and carrying it places, it works great.Some gig bags nowadays are actually pretty rigid – this is not one of them. This is a true gig bag – lightly padded, and you can fold it up when it’s not in use.

    Nice and simple

    After using for a few months, seems ok. Very basic but that’s fine. Could use a bit more padding in the base where the guitar body strap button sticks out, I may add a piece of foam with a hole in it to support the body.

    Bery good product and it fits my daughter’s needs. Good quality!

    The bag was a really light. My daughter use it to carry her guitar and her guitar lessons book. She said to me that what she likes about it so that she either carry it as a backpack with her guitar inside. She said it is comfortable on her back. She really enjoys it. Highly recommended!

    Does its job well for a classical guitar

    I just upgraded to a Cordoba C10 classical guitar, which lives in a hard case, so I needed something for my Yamaha travel guitar. This Gator bag fits them perfectly for both, and I would highly recommend it. Both of my guitars are around 39.5 inches in length, and classical guitars have different dimensions than many steel-string acoustic guitars, so be mindful of that. It’s got a little pouch in front with a zipper, a nice touch for sheet music, and shoulder straps in the back if I ever decide to go into the subway here in NYC and live as a busker. I notice there are other brands that offer heavier padding and pouches for this and that, blah, blah. Go simple and get this little guy.

    Perfect for 000/OM-size guitar

    Although this bag was designed for a classical guitar, it also fits my Recording King Dirty Thirty 000 folk guitar. It’s a snug fit, so you should definitely measure before ordering. Here are my guitar’s dimensions:40″ overall length (just barely fits)4″ deep at lower bout15″ across at widest part of lower bout11.75″ across at widest part of upper boutThe Recording King headstock has a pointy do-dad thingy on top that makes the guitar about half an inch longer than a normal 000/OM guitar, so this case fits *very* snugly from top to bottom. I know from other bags I’ve owned that it will stretch out a wee bit with use. But to echo several other reviewers: this will NOT fit a dreadnought guitar. If you’re unsure of what kind of guitar you play, google “acoustic guitar body shapes.”The padding is adequate. You can’t expect a gigbag to protect your guitar when shipping it or when flying (shudder). A gigbag is not designed for that. It’s just a lightweight carry case for short trips or home storage. If you’re worried about damaging your guitar, you should carry it in a hardshell case, not a gigbag.There’s one zippered pocket in the front, about 14″ wide x14” tall, not very deep. (Personally, that’s all I need. Room for a setlist, spare strings, pick box, slide, tuner, and I’m good to go. I don’t like a bulky gigbag with too many outside pockets that I don’t really use.) No interior pockets. Zippers seem sturdy and each has a red nylon tab attached to the zipper pull; the red stitching makes it easy to see where your zipper is. The bag unzips only to the midpoint of the bottom panel, not all the way around the bottom, but that’s typical for a low-cost gigbag.Several people complained that there’s only one strap, so you can’t carry your guitar like a backpack. This was not a problem for me, because the bag does have attachment points for a second strap, so I just unsnapped a strap from one of my other gigbags, and voilá! Backpack configuration.It has a bit of a funky chemical smell right out of the package, but so did my other Gator gigbags. The smell will fade.All in all, this is an outstanding value; I don’t think you can beat it for the price.

    Fits my Cordoba Cadete perfectly

    I wanted a very lightweight carrying case for short distances. This fits the bill nicely. Have a much sturdier and much more expensive nylon case for taking to and from rehearsals and, of course, a hard and much heavier case for planes, trains, etc.

    Nice classical guitar bag for the price.

    So far it is a good bag. I bought it to carry my classical Manuel Rodriguez guitar in. This bag has good padding. It does not have a neck strap to hold it in the bag. But it still works for me to carry my guitar to class.


    Feels like a custom fit

    I don’t do gigs, I’m just using it for easy storage, and so far so good👍

  51. K. Harriger

    For Classical Guitars, and some other small bodied guitars, too.

    Great bag. For starters, if your guitar is 40 inches long, 14.75″ across the lower bout, 11.50″ across the upper bout, and 4″ deep, it’ll fit. Anything bigger than that will not fit. For example, if you own a jumbo or dreadnought, this will not fit. I see that someone else posted almost identical dimensions, so I’m guessing the size of these bags is fairly consistent and doesn’t vary much. If you’re still with me, here’s the rest of the review.This is a rock solid gig bag made for classical (nylon stringed) guitars. It’ll also fit a variety of guitars in the OM, 00, and 000, and parlor guitar range, even though they’re all technically different sizes. The main thing is that they are no bigger than the dimensions I’ve already listed.It’s well-padded and sturdy, and the only weak link in this product is that I don’t trust the straps. If you’re going to use this as a backpack bag, be very careful. I put electrician’s tape around the snaps to make certain they hold, but I mostly just use it with the handle.This is a gig bag, not a hard case. It will protect the instrument from small knocks and dings, but will simply not take the abuse that a hard case will make. In spite of this, I still hear people complaining about how it didn’t protect their guitar from a serious impact. Duh. It’s a gig bag. It’s not designed for that.I own two of these, and for the money, there’s not a better gig bag on the market. Almost everything else in this price range is simply Cordura nylon with little padding. This is a good, solid, cheap gig bag with very adequate padding, and well worth the money.

    Is This What You Really Wanted?

    You really need to adjust your expectations with something like this. My classical guitar is my go to guitar. I use it daily, and every once in a while it goes with me to the beach and camping. Sometimes I will leave it out by accident and in the evening at the beach or by next morning when camping it gets covered with dew, which just is bad for a guitar, so this case does the job and protects it from this, and gives it a little more protection as well during transport… But realize that this is NOT going to protect your guitar from getting accidentally crushed like a hard case or even some soft cases that are built better. The best analogy I can provide for feel of thickness is like taking an oven mitt and pulling it over the top of the tuners. That’s roughly how thick (or thin depending upon how you look at it) the case is. The finish work is good, dual zippers to open, the storage part can hold full size sheets of paper, and there’s a single strap that can be adjusted for either left or right shoulder to sling it over your back, but it doesn’t have 2 straps to wear like a back pack. In the end, when you consider the price, you realize that it’s a fair price… Just make sure you adjust your expectations to see if it will meet your needs.

    Perfect length for 1/2 size guitar, but a bit too roomy elsewhere.

    The bag itself is really nice quality. I had checked out the full size ones at a guitar store first, liked them, then came to Amazon since they have this smaller size.My daughter has the and that’s what we bought this bag for. The length is perfect. I has a bit of room so that you’re not stretching the bag over it. My only issue is the width. This bag and guitar combo should be about perfectly matched, but the body of the bag is too big. It could probably fit a full-size guitar in it. Therefore, this 1/2 size one can slop around in it. The padding and everything still protects it well, so I’m not too worried, but I do wish it was more snug.The single pocket is ok – it can hold a book and small tuner just fine. There’s no other pockets, though, so if you have a ton of accessories, it might not suit you. My kids use this bag to take the guitar to school about once a week, and it’s great for that. The carry strap is a good addition.For the price, this bag was a no-brainer, but I really thought it would be more snug on the body of the guitar.

    Good Quality Bag

    Unfortunately I had to return this bag because it did not fit my dreadnaught Ibanez acoustic guitar ( Concord model 699 from the 70’s ). The guitar dimensions were within the referenced measurements of the bag but the bag would not zip past the upper bout. Called manufacturer ( Gator ) and they couldn’t figure out the problem and suggested I return the bag and order another one of the same model ( GBE-DREAD ). I think I will just shop for a different brand rather than have to return a second order. Otherwise, the bag is great.


    Fit perfect

    It fits my acoustic bass guitar perfectly.

    Nice Fit for my Guitar

    This case fit my acoustic guitar very well! I’ve been using it for three months now, and I haven’t had a single problem. The exterior pocket is perfectly sized for folder or other sheet music. If you have small items like picks, I would recommend getting another, smaller bag to keep in this pocket, as the pocket is deep, and it is incredibly easy to lose pencils and picks in the very bottom crevices.The shoulder strap isn’t super comfortable, but can easily be swapped out for better a better one. I’m sure you could replace the shoulder strap for a full backpack-setup if you wanted to. I like that there is both a shoulder strap and a handle on the side to easily grab the case from whatever angle.For my guitar, the fit isn’t too tight or too lose. Definitely check the dimensions to see if this will fit your guitar, as many reviewers complained it didn’t work for theirs. The dimensions provided were accurate to the product.Overall, I’m a big fan of the case. At some point, I’ll probably sew something new over the logo, just because I prefer logo-less items, and there isn’t any color on the bag. I definitely recommend this guitar case!

    GBE-DREAD Guitar Case

    I like the case , it is a nylon ‘canvas’ weave cloth bag , and is suitable for my minimal requirements for storage purposes . It is exactly per the advertised dimensions & so was a bit tight for my guitar . I’d advise potential buyers measure carefully before buying , a little slack would be welcome , tho I did get it inside . I am sure that with time & use it will ‘ relax ‘ some . I am not dissatisfied , in the least ; it is a great value . Thanks !

    Product is ok but has fake warranty tag

    The product is decent. However, they send a tag with date inspected and information about going to their website to register the product for warranty. So, following their instructions I went to their site and it says they do not have a warranty policy. Pretty much a click bait to let customers to go to their website. This would have received a better feedback if not for that misinformation.

    Great Gig Bag!

    The packaging is great! The packaging was large enough to hold the entire gig bag without having to be folded.The Gator Cases, Gig Bag for Dreadnaught Acoustic Guitars. Haves good foam all around the guitar to keep it safe from dents and scratches, and has several big pockets for all my accessories that are small.Good Product, Good Packaging, I like it.I recommend it, not just as a Gig bag but also as a Guitar case.Robert Folen
