I've had the older model. Sure, it broke down... but /only/ after 7 years of wear and tear. The only complaint I had of the older model (Which was what succumbed to wear and tear) was the zipper. The teeth and zipper itself were made of a cheap plastic and the grip tag on the zipper broke off within a year; however, I would definitely recommend this case if the zippers, as shown, are far more improved. Though designed for an acoustic, I've also been able to put in a Fender Squire, and that never ended up scratched while in the case..
I have a hard case that is really heavy and I've needed to decrease the weight I carry. This bag is exactly what I needed! It has 2 pockets in the front. I put my cord and adaptor in the larger pocket and my capo, picks and tuner in the smaller pocket, and both have room to spare! I haven't used the backpack straps yet but I have them, plus 2 handles to carry my guitar as needed. I saw the more expensive version at the store but didn't need the extra room for what I carry. This was perfect! It has padding, too, although I am more careful setting it down just because I know it's soft sided. I have a Gibson acoustic-electric from the 80's and it fits very nicely!
I purchased this gig bag along with my new Ibanez Acoustic Electric. The bag is snug at the curves of the guitar body, which concerns me about scratching the guitar finish. I have to be extra careful zippering the bag, and not confident about the guitar's safety in transit. Padding is soft, but not thick enough for frequent trips. The pockets are large and easily accessed, handles are comfortable and well placed. Bag looks clean and attractive. This bag would be fine to keep your guitar clean at home, or for a temporary bag.
For the price, this is a very good case. I got this at my local guitar center because my Takamine EG440CS didn't come with a case. This fit the bill, luckily the store had a second EG440CS so I could see if it fit right there. The pocket on the outside won't be a big problem to me, because I carry my music in a shoulder bag (i have a lot of music). Most likely I will just put some picks and extra strings in there. Maybe even one of my guitar chords. So as I said, it won't be a big problem. This case is only temporary, I will get the Takamine hard case in June, so it does exactly what I need it to do... Protect my guitar! I have to give this case 4 stars instead of 5 though, because there are better cases out there. Say for example the next step up from this case... It is $10 more, but you get more comfortable straps and extra pockets. Then there's the soft hard case that is $60. You get more protection. I'd say probably the same amount of space for accessories as this, just not in a pocket. In a little compartment inside the case. So what I'm trying to say is, this is a good temporary case, but if you want a permanent case, go for a hard one.
Its great if your on the budget, and it does the job done. I carry my tak around for gigs and this is perfect. Nothing to complain about, it could be a little better quality, however its not THAT poorly made. It feels like a regular backpack material, however the pockets in the front is pretty much useless, i only carry picks, capos, and a strap that basicly it. If you want more room, look for a different bag. The bigger pocket can only hold papers, but not big binders, or anything like that.
I bought this case the same day I bought my first acoustic guitar. The sales representative did in fact help steer me in the right direction when buying a good quality guitar, but I should have thought twice about their recommendations concerning guitar cases. You get what you pay for. I take very good care of my personal belongings, but I found out that even with good care, that this case rips along the seams very easily. Once it rips, the (cheap) padding falls out and you lose all your protection. Spend a little more money than you want to, and buy a hard case, or a different brand soft case. It will last you much longer and you will be much more satisfied. Think twice before purchasing this product.
I needed a basic soft case for carrying my acoustic guitars around. This fits the bill. Seems well made, protects the instrument, which is the real key. The pocket on the front is a little small and strangely shaped but I'm not going to carry anything but some paper in it anyway.
it's okay, but there are definitely better gigbags out there. there are even better gigbags that cost the same as this one! it gives my guitar decent protection, which is what matters most, i guess. it fits the body perfectly, but it's loose on the neck. is that normal for a bag? i wish the front pocket was bigger. it's too small to hold my binder full of sheet music, although you can fit in seperate sheets w/o the binder. the zippers on the pockets always get stuck, too. i like all the different handles, though. and my yamaha has never been scratched inside it.
I just need a good quality gig bag. Nothing to flashy & expensive, this was perfect! If you just need something from time to time to get around this is perfect!
