I recently purchased a new guitar. I own several guitars and most of them have hard shell cases. I decided that for the short term, I would purchase this gigbag for my new guitar and sort out a hard shell case at a later date as I would be playing the new guitar a lot.
The gigbag. Boy was I surprised. The quality is superb, tough material, not anything like the gigbag that I have for one of my guitars. Thomann?s bag comes with two large pockets to store music, music stand or guitar stand, a handle for carrying or straps for the back pack carry.
As with any gigbag, they will not prevent damage to the guitar, BUT, it is a very handy way to store my guitar, keep dust out of and off of and get to and from a gig.
If your on a budget, this is a MUST have for any guitarists, end of, besides being pleasantly surprised, for the price, you can?t beat it.
I purchased the Thomann Acoustic-Steel Jumbo Gigbag in a set with the guitar Harley Benton HB Custom Line King in 2013. This bag is very well made from waterproof material, sufficiently padded and perfect balanced at the side carrying handle. The use of the two shoulder straps is comfortable and the large zip has two sliders, so it is easy to open the gigbag. A rubbered part on the bottom of the bag helps you to set it upright. You have enough space in the large and small side pockets for music books, reserve strings, picks, capos etc., but attention: you open the side pockets correctly, if the bag is kept horizontal, not vertical! A horizontal carrying handle above the two shoulder straps would be helpful. After a lot of gigs, transports etc. our guitar is in near mint condition. It is really good value for money!
