I don't know what some of these other reviewers were expecting, but "economy" means little padding and basic protection. You wanna throw your gig bagged guitar into your trunk without worry? Then you pay for a more expensive gig bag with more padding. This is lightweight, it will keep dust off of your guitar if stored and it will protect your guitar fairly well if its raining from the car to the venue. Its not fireproof or bulletproof, or able to withstand impact. Act accordingly.

Comments about Gator GBE-ELECT Economy-Style Padded Electric Guitar Gig Bag:

A couple of weeks ago, I bought this gigbag from my local guitar shop. I have owned gator gigbags in the past, and I will say now that I will never buy another brand. The overview does not inflate, nor take away from what this bag was designed to do, protect your axe. It does this part of its job very well (albeit, not as good as a hardshell would). I'm not saying to throw it around, but I am saying that if you bump into the doorframe on the way outside, you won't destroy your instrument. This is by far the best gigbag I've ever owned for a traditional shape. Buy this if you value your guitar.

      Comments about Gator GBE-ELECT Economy-Style Padded Electric Guitar Gig Bag:

      I got this with my Squier Jaguar. The "guitar case finder" listed this as one that would fit a Jaguar. It BARELY fits around the upper horn of the guitar. If you have the whammy bar on, it won't zip up all the way. Without the whammy bar, it will but it's a tight fit.

        Comments about Gator GBE-ELECT Economy-Style Padded Electric Guitar Gig Bag:

        Warning: this bag offers only very minimal scratch and moisture protection. I was very disappointed to find the "8mm foam" padding was basically worthless since it is the cheapest flimsiest foam imaginable. It fully compresses to NOTHING with even the slightest touch and would not protect against a fall or ding of any sort. Cardboard would offer much better protection. In fact, it would be dangerous for me to use because it would give the illusion of protection without delivering which would surely end up badly for the guitar. I would be afraid to even store my cheapest guitar in a closet with this. I'm sending it back immediately.

          Comments about Gator GBE-ELECT Economy-Style Padded Electric Guitar Gig Bag:

          I've got a big guitar collection so I'm always looking for cheap bags for light use, storage & dust protection; I try to buy a different one each time so I can try them all, and this Gator one is my fave so far. It's got just a little more padding so if you suddenly need to travel unplanned, in a pinch it'll handle the trip, whereas all the other ones kinda keep me worried. Some have no padding at all and I would rather just dust the guitar everyday with a feather duster than use those. Once again, this one is the best. No worries if you keep it light duty.

            I had origionally ordered a different bag but it was on backorder for almost two months, was gonna cancel but guy talked me into this. This is the first gig bag I ever looked at. I've had it almost two weeks now. Both my Jaguar and Les Paul barely fit this thing. It has no protection at all as far as I'm concerned. I didn't want to buy another heavy hard case and didn't expect this bag to have the protection of a case either. I just wish I would have bought something local.

            The bags are economical, and sufficiently padded to afford home storage protection. I have hard cases for tons of guitars so, if I were leaving the house I'd take 'guitar of the moment' and swap for travel.

            A good way to beat the cost and space of a HSC for every instrument.

            I looked hard for a bag that would make me happy so I bought 3 this time.

            This case does what it's supposed to do: protect the guitar. I use it for an ESP LTD and as long as you don't drop it or bang it around, it's a very good case. The front pocket is large, and good storage for picks, strings, strap, allen wrenches.

            This is a lightweight, but durable gig bag. It has a basic design.
            The materials that make this gig bag will last a while and through some road trips.
            This gig bag has a good price point for its performance and features.
