Overview

The Road Runner Roadster Electric Bass Gig Bag has a super-tough Cordura exterior and plenty of thick 1" foam padding to make it trustworthy. The bass guitar bag offers lots of smart pockets and comfortable, convenient handles that make it a gig bag with brains as well as brawn.

Road Runner includes a soft nonslip lining and backpack-style padded straps with the Roadster gig bag that zip in and out of their own pocket for storage. The bass guitar bag's contoured rubber handles provide a comfortable grip that's tough enough to last.

The Road Runner Roadster bag's interior has reinforcements to protect both the headstock and bridge with padded, snag-resistant nylon. The Roadster's 3 separate outer pockets have zipper closures, and the largest has an interior pocket organizer for picks, pens, and other miscellaneous bass guitar accessories.

This bag seems to be made with good, solid material. I bought it to replace the Rock Back that came with my Warwick Corvette Standard. That bag sucked and came apart on me. The only thing I don't like about the Road Runner is that it does not have neck/bridge support, but I couldn't find any in this price range that did. I would recommend this bag.

I made a quick decision in the "brick & mortar", after briefly perusing online, both searches made based on price. I have only had it one day, so can't vouch for durability one way or the other. But here's one guy's INITIAL reaction, after a little more inspection. PROS: Good thick padding, as thick as you're gonna find and still have portability; any thicker an it'd be cumbersome. It's a BAG, never will give as much protection as a hardshell, but protection is as would be expected. Handle on mid-front, hanger loop on back are good features. Good LAYOUT of pockets, but I question the location of the one on the headstock. But there's a problem with the pockets; (gettin' to that) I like the IDEA of the "retractable" shoulder straps, it's nice that you can tuck 'em away when not needed. But problem here too. CONS: There are several small inner pockets inside the large pocket on the front. Problem is, you have to UNLOAD EVERYTHING in the pocket to get to 'em. The one thing you KNOW you're gonna need with a 'lectric Bass is CORDS, after all, and that's the only pocket they'll fit in. So there WILL be something in the way of access to those inner pockets. Great idea, but those small pockets could be better located, maybe on the OUTSIDE, or just leave 'em off altogether. Where they are now, I don't see myself using 'em much, if at all. "Retractable" shoulder straps are a GREAT idea! But the storage pocket FOR them is the ONE pocket that absolutely NEEDS TWO ZIPPERS. As it is, you can only zip up from one side once you've deployed the straps for use, and the flap is left dangling on the other side. If you could pull a zipper up from EACH side, the flap would experience less "folding" and less wear & tear. THE SHOULDER STRAPS ARE ATTACHED TOO LOW, and THIS is probably the biggest shortcoming. This makes the case (AND your expensive Bass) ride too HIGH. I've only used it once (last night), and it's already an annoyance. Before I left the house, I'd already hit the headstock of the bag on SEVERAL doorframes, just walkin' around, checkin' it out. Before I got to the Club, I hit several concrete supports in the ceiling of the Parking Garage where I parked. I took it off and stowed the straps before entering the Club, so I wouldn't have to remember to BEND OVER to go through doorways and look STUPID, or forget to bend, and bang the headstock again. I'm what I consider in the range of "average" height (6'1"). Not to be politically incorrect, but was this thing designed by a MIDGET? Like I already said, I just bought it yesterday. I'm probably going back to the store to see what else they have there and since there's ALWAYS a larger selection online, I'll look there too. But I'll just be LOOKING, maybe swapping for another one, but maybe not; I haven't yet decided. The shoulder strap placement may be a problem with ALL of them, & this is the only one I've seen where they can be stowed when not in use. Bottom line: It's not a bad case, but some elements could have been thought out more. I think there are better cases out there, but there are DEFINITELY worse ones, so this gig bag might suit your needs. It's worth a look.

Weak nylon

By Luis Escobar

from TX

Strongly recommend Guitar Center to discontinue this product from their inventory. I have tried to be careful with this bag but it continues to come apart where the handle joins the bag. The zipper jams quite frequent but that doesn't bother me as much as the back comming appart. I did not like the backpak configuration either. Not very well balanced. I am replacing it with another brand. I will pay close attention on how the handle is attached on the next bag. I own 5 basses each one with their own bag. Road Runner has been the worst.

Fell apart in no time

By Dan Barbour

from Durham NC

I bought this case a year ago and the seams have separated around BOTH handles. The zipper handles have broken off ALL the zippers. I use this case once a week to go to practice . Spend your money on a different bag.

Great for the price

By Oscar

from Van Nuys California

These bags are very useful and with all the pockets makes it easy to organize. The bag is pretty good and heavy made it actually protects yor bass but the straps are not very resistant. I own two of these and one is still in excellent condition while the other one has broke from the straps several times and I use them both equally. So I guess some are better made.

OK product, but made cheaply

By Malcolm

from Berkeley, CA

I used this bass gig bag for about 18 months before one of the small pouches ripped away from the zipper. I'm not a touring musician, I just use the case to transport my bass once a week max to get to rehearsal and maybe once a month to a gig. Overall, I really liked the look and feel of the bag, especially for the price. However, to keep their prices down the manufacturer clearly has to use the cheapest materials and manufacturing techniques. I had a gig bag for an 88-keyboard and that guy ripped after about 2 months. Bottom line, if you're looking for something cheap that looks good but won't last long (i.e. you'll have to repair it yourself), then this is a good choice.

good for small gigs or school

By Luke

from La Mesa

I just bought this gig bag in August of 2010, and it is perfect for peoplae who need it for small gigs or for just bringing it to school. It has 1 pocket on the head of the bag, then 2 at the bottom. The larger bag on the bottom has some room for paper, pencils, tuner, ect.

Not bad

By Ed Burns

from Reno, NV

My first one broke where the back-pack strap attached to the snap buckle on the bottom. I caught the bass before it hit the ground. GC replaced it with no probs. So far, so good with the new one. Probably just a factory defect. I'm a big guy so I only use one strap around my shoulder. My only complaint is the back-pack strap design. It could be stronger. Other than that, it is well padded and has lot of pockets for a cell phone, straps, cords etc. Good buy. I would buy another.
