The bag holds up nicely, you can carry anything you would need, and the price is stellar for the bag you are getting.
If you're a broke college student like me who only needs a case to keep your friends from knocking your guitar over, then look no further. I got a Yamaha F335 and this bag fits perfectly for it. The front pouch is bigger than I thought, but I only keep a capo and a handful of picks in there, I'm sure it can fit a strap if the need arises. It's good for propping up against the wall, and the straps are good for when I need to walk across campus with it. I don't use the back strap, but that's just me. For the price this is the best gig bag.
A couple of random fibers shooting off of the stitching, but nothing a pair of scissors can't fix.
I don't need a hard case for my guitar (mostly because I keep it in my dorm), and I don't gig, so this works perfectly fine for those trips inbetween dorm rooms. Perfect gig bag for a guitarist on a budget.

Very disappointed

Bought 2 of these based on the reviews on this page. Received them quickly, as usual from MF. The boxes were huge, but when I opened them it was mostly air. Read complete review

Bought 2 of these based on the reviews on this page. Received them quickly, as usual from MF. The boxes were huge, but when I opened them it was mostly air.

The case just barely fit my Martin 6 string. My Martin 12 string did not fit. This is something that should be disclosed!

The fabric looks like it is heavy duty stuff, but there is, at best, 1/2 inch of foam around the body of the guitar and maybe 1/4 inch of foam around the headstock. The zippers look to be good quality, but the fit around the body of a Martin dreadnaught is so tight that you have to use great care not to scratch the guitar while operating the zippers.

The fabric and foam around the body will only protect your guitar from scratches. Do not expect it to protect your guitar body from anything but the lightest impacts to smooth surfaces. The foam around the headstock is so thin that it will not protect your guitar from bent and broken tuners.

Bottom line, I would not recommend this to a friend. If you plan to use this for anything except storage, do more research and spend more money than I did. And do not even consider them for a 12 string.

              Comments about Gator GBE-Dread Gig Bag for Dreadnought Guitars:

              If you are careful carrying your guitar there are a lot of advantages to a close fitting gig bag with relatively thin (10mm seems to be the standard) padding. This bag fits a 6 string dreadnought fairly snugly and does not have a lot of packets and other stuff to bulk it up. As is you now have a dreadnought in just a little more space than a GS Mini in its heavily padded gig bag. If you pay for early boarding now you can carry a dreadnought on a plane (and defend it from idiots who will attempt to force their wheelie onto its neck). However, this bag is made with open cell foam and for a bit more and no extra bulk there are options out there with the stiffer closed cell foam. Given you are careful and are really just looking for a tight fitting bag to provide a handle and backpack strap, I suppose this is no reason to ding this product. 10 mm of closed cell foam is not going to make that big a difference in the protection, but I can't give up on getting as much protection as I can even though minimizing bulk was my goal for this purchase...

              i purchased this as a dust protector and to help keep scratches at bay. Seems to be well made. It doesnt provide the protection of a hard shell case, but it is a gig bag after all. I would buy this brand again

                  Highly Recommend, fit my Fender Dreadnought to a 't'. Even with the capo on the head. Keeps the tuners on the bottom. Good enough padding for home and jamming at my Bud's house. Very Very Happy ! Would buy again :)
