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.

      this bag is good for the price. I do not think it would hold up to heavy use. But I do not use it much so it fits my needs.

          This bag is just built so much better than most, I don't work about the occasional bump because it is padded so well, a good quality, sporty gig bag with a great price!

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

            Got this for a cheap acoustic guitar. It is better than the one that came with my electric guitar by far. I had no problem fitting the Rogue RA-090 in it. The zipper pocket on the front is quite big, I throw my capo and some picks in it, no problems. This has decent padding on the inside, reminds me of the thickness and material of a sleeping bag. Works for me.

                    Needed something to keep the dust off and light travel. Foam lining not very dense, don't expect much protection from impact if that is what you are looking for

                          This is my second Gator bag, the first was purchased on recomendation by a Musician's Friend representative for my acoustic Dean bass. This one is just as tough, well stitched and well fitting as the first. There are less expensive bags for your instruments but this one suits the bill and is well worth what you pay for it. Since this is to get my guitar to the beach, I also Scotch Guarded the heck out of it and I recommend doing that for your bag too.
