I live in suburbia. 99% of the places I play - from gigs to jams with beer at friends' houses - are in suburbia. But every so often I get into the city or inner-suburbia where there is not parking right in front of my final location where carrying my guitar for several blocks is not difficult but kind of inconvenient. I have a good hard shell case for my Gibson acoustic. I googled around to see if there is some way to add backpack straps to the case and found BackAxe for just $45 vs. $150-$200 for a quality soft case with straps. http://www.backaxe.com/ https://www.elderly.com/products/backaxe-instrument-case-backpack Has anybody used this or something similar? I started out thinking I could make something like this (replacement shoulder straps are about $15 plus some webbing straps and buckles) but buying it pre-made may be worthwhile if a bit more expensive. I have an entry level RoadRunner soft case for my inexpensive Seagull acoustic and cheap semi-hollow electric but do not trust it with my Gibson. In addition to my guitar, I also carry a small bag with music, cords and a couple of pedals. That small bag currently goes on my back as I hand-carry the guitar but I was thinking it would be easier to switch the two around as I do when carrying my Tele in a soft bag. If I were to somehow start getting regular gigs where carrying the guitar on my back made sense, then I'd let those gigs pay for a good soft case. But at the moment it's just looking for some convenience. Thanks for any feedback you may have.
