    I just bought a proper quality gig bag for my #1 (which ever one happens to be my #1 at that mo). The rest are of good to fair quality except for the one I have to take a strat back to the states with... its craptacular... came with the guitar...(Below).

    The new one by Harvest Fine Leather:

    The craptacular one is little more than a guitar shaped windbreaker. Paper thin with no padding... I fear for the guitar on the journey home. Trying to secure a good one here prior to leaving. Let’s see those gig bags folks!

    That looks really nice! Congrats on the purchase!

    My main gig bag is actually a bass gig bag. Double sided gator "pro" gig bag.

    Often when I go out to play, jam or whatever, I usually take a guitar and a bass as I switch between the two. The other even bigger reason is that my Boss ME 80 will fit in the front pocket. So even if I take 2 guitars, that is still my go to bag. I dont always use the ME -80, but I almost always take it. It is my "woobie". I feel like anything that I would ever need can be done with that device and it requires zero setup time. Many things sound better, but nothing is more effective in a pinch.

    This thread inspired me to upgrade my gig bag (freebee pawn shop falling apart Alvarez acoustic bag that came with a tele)

    I picked up a Protec Contego... and man, I'm impressed with the build quality! Includes a 5 year warranty. Besides my Sheraton, all my electrics fit quite nicely. Is it as classy as @4pickupguy's Harvest? Well, no. But neither am I!

    Now I just need to wait patiently for post-pandemica so I can do something with it.

    If I can squeeze it in financially I may order one of these Inbox gig bags for another electric and one for my acoustic. They are leather, well appointed, skin tight and offer decent protection and are only $98 for the electric and only $148 for acoustic cases. They look cool (I think).

    I'm sick of poor-quality gig bags. The next one I buy will be a top-end gator. They're like hotels for guitars. If they made one big enough I'd probably sleep in it.

    Updating an old old thread but musicians friend has the Roadrunner Highway Premium acoustic gig bags for $48 (got one) and today guitar center has the electric version for $69 (ordered one)....thought some of you might be looking still, I think these are really decent gig bags...a little bulky but great padding and adjustable neck supports and lots of storage....

    I built a '61 Style Strat in faded Sonic blue.

    Before I finished it I found that Fender made a matching Sonic blue case, so I decided to treat myself to one:

    In the end, in addition to the Harvest leather bag, I ended up with a heavy duty Fender gig bag and a injection molded Fender hard shell case. All the guitars made it home safe and sound from Japan.

    The Bus Station shot. Thomann bag, still costs around £30. Pockets swallow a bunch of cables, a Mic and a couple of Pedals. Highly recommended. :)

    I did the same thing with my surf green '63 Partscaster.

    And then for my Nocaster Partscaster I couldn't resist the Rondo case, great snug fit and great customer service.

    Otherwise, my Partscasters don't get gig bags. Only bag I own is for my Recording King acoustic.

    What I do like are the hybrid cases.... Nylon outside but molded foam inside. The cases weigh next to nothing, but the guitar feels better protected and tons of storage. The brand is WolfPak.

    Sweet!
    An airport pic of a Fender gig bag I bought for the trip home. Very nice bag for the money!

    I've always liked the quality of PRS gig bags. Never owned one, though......or a PRS guitar. :lol:

    I always use my PRS gig bag that came with my S2 Mira - sold the guitar in a hardcase so I could keep the gig bag. It's just perfect. Pretty beat at this point. Looking at a Mono for my new Eastman purchase, as that will not fit into the PRS bag.
    I have a couple "windbreaker" bags too but mostly I just avoid looking at them much less using them.

    Received my Roadrunner Highway Premium Electric guitar bag and it is great...I just ordered one of the electric bass models for $30 off the regular price from GC....very protective bags, double tops and 1" padding, some sort of corrugated structure inside the back and top and stiff padded sides...sort of a hybrid bag between complete soft foam gig bag and hard case (imo).

    For serious protection I have SKB hard cases. But I now have four Ibanez Powerpad gig bags that I really like for storage and less critical transportation. They are very well made and have lots of pocket capacity.
