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.

This gig bag is probably worth what I paid for it. It really needs more padding and thicker canvas to make it exceptional, but for the price, I guess its o.k. if you don't have the money for something better.

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

I use this bag to bring my guitar to and from practices and it does the job. As long as you aren't throwing your guitar around or in the trunk of your car, this bag will sufficiently protect it. I'm still cautious not to bang it around too much because the protection isn't as much as I expected but for the price it is a great bag. If you want a lot of protection, I wouldn't recommend this bag, go for something more pricey. But if you want a cheap bag, this does the job!

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

I use it to keep the dust off a guitar. I have other Gator products and this just wasn't up to their usual standard. I bought a Fender bag a couple years back for twelve greenbacks with double the padding. They don't sell that bag anymore or I would have bought another Fender bag. I can't recommend the bag at the regular price but if it were the stupid deal of the day at ten greenbacks I would.

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

    This was purchased for my teardrop shaped folk art stringed instrument. Measurements are adequate. I called with additional questions as it was given help to find an economical bag. This will do well for my pioneer band programs and storage.

            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.

                  Didn't need the bag. It turns out the guitar I purchased came with one. I was NOT happy about the fact that I lost money on this purchase returning the item even though I shipped it back via the U.S. Postal service.

                      Cheap. You get what you pay for. OK to store a guitar - but not good for the road. I bought to keep a couple guitars in a closet. Too many guitars/not enough cases.....

                        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.

                              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.

                                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.
