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.

      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 :)

                        A soft-sided bag offers only moderate protection for the instrument, but on the plus side it is much more manageable when you are carrying your own gear. This item is well-made, a perfect fit, has a generous outside pocket, and is lightweight and easy to handle. My guitar stays dry and doesn't get scratched up in its Gator bag.

                          Nice looking case. Seems to be pretty well built. Was expecting a bit more padding though. Not sure if it would protect very well against a drop.

                            Nice bag for low price. Wanted some basic protection for an inexpensive guitar [but a good one!] so didn't want to pay half the cost of the guitar for a bag. This bag was very reasonable, and is tough. Even better than I needed, fits nicely, looks good, and well-made. Only one long strap so need to get another strap if you want to "backpack" carry it [there are 2 attachment points.] I never use mine like that, just use the luggage handle, so did not mention this as a "con."
