I am a beginning guitarist and just needed a way to transport my guitar to and from lessons. This bag is good so far. My only complaint is the large pockets on the front aren't large enough for my music sheets and books. Other than that, the bag is good.

I purchased this gigbag today at my local guitar center. Upon first examination and purchase this gigbag seemed to have all the features I was looking for: multiple pockets, quality handles, and sufficient padding. However when I brought this gigbag back home and attempted to place my acoustic in it I realized it didn't fit. At least the zipper was not able to close all the way. Now I own a standard size dreadnought acoustic but it's hard to imagine that this case could properly fit over any std. size acoustic guitar. I was disapointed because as I said earlier this bag has all the features I was looking for.

Comments about Road Runner Roadster Acoustic Guitar Gig Bag:

I live in NYC and take my guitar on the subway often. This case, when worn on the back is very poorly balanced- the top of the straps are mounted too low on the case. As a result, no matter how adjusted, the case sits too high and has very poor balance so I worry about the guitar headstock hitting doorways/subway entrances/turnstiles. Additionally, the main front pocket is too small to fit 8.5x11 sheet music so whats the point?

Good but needs some design work.

By 

from Hurst, TX

Comments about Road Runner Roadster Acoustic Guitar Gig Bag:

Good gig bag. Fits my dreadnought with no issues and room to spare. My only suggestions on it would be this: the large front pocket needs to be a little larger, as it doesn't quite fit sheet music or a standard 8 1/2 x 11 page. I keep mine in a very thin folder that barely hold normal papers, but even so the pocket needs to be the same width at the top as the bottom to really be used properly. The other issue is that the shoulder straps on the back are placed too low. If adjusted all the way out to allow the bag to sit lower, the balance becomes awkward and if they're shortened up the headstock is easily a foot over the top of your head (or more). If you're going to carry your guitar "suitcase style" and there's room enough to keep your music inside the bag (like I do), this is a good deal.

Does what a gig bag is supposed to

By 

from Murrieta

Comments about Road Runner Roadster Acoustic Guitar Gig Bag:

This case is sturdy and durable. Heavy polyfoam protects the guitar very well and the craftsmanship is truly outstanding. The external pouches are a huge plus for extra strings/picks/anything. The backpack straps are also very convenient for when you want to carry and keep your hands free.

Great Bag!!!

By 

from Los Angeles California

Comments about Road Runner Roadster Acoustic Guitar Gig Bag:

I got this case about three months ago and I could not be happier. The padding really assures me that my guitar will be safe. I have a Fender electric-acoustic and it fits snug and transports easy. I love this bag.

Deeper Pouches Could Make this more useful

By 

from Wilmore, Kentucky

Comments about Road Runner Roadster Acoustic Guitar Gig Bag:

Brand aside, the bad is nicely built and I think that companies like GATOR would not mind slapping their label on it. After reading some of the earlier reviews, I'm glad that I checked the bag for any fraying or poor stitching that would burst open and dropping the guitar from underneath! I actually bought it for a Yamaha NTX 700 thin line for my son but it fits my Breedlove D25/SME nice and snug. The snug fit does not seem to stress the stitches so far. Because the D25/SME is mahogany back and sides, the guitar is not as heavy as one equipped with rosewood and I think the bag should last a long time under such usage. The pockets have zippers that curve around to open. It looks nice but the zipper can get a little stuck around the bends. Fitting the bag with smoother zippers should not increase the cost too much? RoadRunner R&D get busy! The main front pouch opens to a very nice organizer like layout but after putting my Dreadnaught sized Breedlove, the pockets are not wide enough and the most I feel safe packing in there is the guitar cord. You could fit a DI in the top pouch near the headstock which is nice. If you plan to bring sheet music (without folding it) along in the front pouch of the bag, make sure it's flat and not in a binder. I feel the more snug the fit, the more pressure the bag will exert on the bridge. On an acoustic guitar, that is the area that is under the most stress!

Why so small?

By 

from South Plainfield, NJ

Comments about Road Runner Roadster Acoustic Guitar Gig Bag:

I just bought a Mitchell MD100SCE. It has a standard dreadnought body with a cutaway. I have to jam it in this bag and use two hands just to TRY and get the thing closed.

I hate this bag

By 

from Grand Rapids, MI

Comments about Road Runner Roadster Acoustic Guitar Gig Bag:

I gig with some friends and schlep an acoustic and a nylon cutaway. Getting into the loft where we practice with hard shell cases is a royal pain since there are multiple doors and narrow stairs, so I bought two Roadrunners. They work OK and are light enough, but the big pocket is useless for anything but a few sheets of music. You cannot get even a thin music book in them. One would think that the person who designed this would have made the pockets a little wider and deeper. I brought them back. I would not trust these bags other than taking my beauties from my house to the loft in my car.

Bad Quality

By 

from NC

Comments about Road Runner Roadster Acoustic Guitar Gig Bag:

I've owned this bag now for about 8 months and it is already falling apart. I am very careful with my musical equipment and this bag is not holding up at all. It is already tearing. The guitar that I am carrying in it is not even one of the heavier guitar. It is an APX 500 Yamah Thinline cutaway. I wish I had never bought this bag. My other guitar is in a cheaper bag and I have had it almost 2 years and it is not torn yet.
