      Comments about Gator GL-Dread Lightweight Dreadnought Guitar Case:

      I purchased this case for my brother who is currently travelling around America as a singer/songwriter. After his last case literally fell apart, I decided we should look into something different.
      Most hard shell cases are the same. The handle is pretty wimpy, the case gets dinged up quickly, and if it's being regularly used you can see it start coming apart after too long.
      SKB makes a nice case that's extremely reinforced, but it's bulky and the clips protrude from the case and are consequently easily broken.

      This case has a bit of all the best parts.
      It's very light, its handle is very durable, it avoids clasps in favor of a reliable zipper, it has a softer outside that keeps it from taking too much shock, but a firm inside to keep it in place and protect it. As a nice little bonus, the external pockets are great for holding extra strings, books, harmonicas,etc.

      I can't recommend this case enough.

        I bought this for my BBT - was a perfect fit. I put a cheaper acoustic-electric guitar in the gig bag that came with the BBT. Nice Case, great price!

          I purchased this for my Father-in-law and he really loves the case. It is lighter than a hard case and still has the protective padding and interior fuzz. He has a Seagull 6S and it fits perfectly. A great gift!

              Perfect fit for my Martin 6 string dreadnought. But my Martin 12 string can't quite fit in. That would be the only 'CON'. Otherwise, it's sturdy, lightweight, and has lots of storage space! I really like this case. It's definitely worth the money!

                Comments about Gator GL-Dread Lightweight Dreadnought Guitar Case:

                I tried a few different cases to fit my Seagull S6 Original. The Gator Dreadnought hard case was very nice but would not close completely without putting unnecessary pressure on the top of the guitar.

                The Gator Lightweight case is a snug fit but much better for the top of the guitar. As you would expect it's great for travel because it is sturdy and lightweight. It also works well for storage. In the winter I can keep my acoustic in this case with the humidifier so it won't dry out due to the heat on in the house. Easy to get the guitar in and out as I play everyday. Definitely a great choice!

                This case works great with my husband's Martin DXR1AE guitar. It has a compartment inside and pockets on the outside. It has two backpack type straps on the back of the case. It is lightweight and compact making it great for taking your guitar places.

                The Ideal Soft Case!

                By Stephen De Nisi

                from Southern California

                Comments about Gator GL-Dread Lightweight Dreadnought Guitar Case:

                My Martin D-15 was presented to me as a retirement gift.The unfortunate thing, was that it came with a heavy hard case. When you utilize your guitar as much as I do (performing/leading worship), going up and down stairs, loading and unloading my vehicle, it became a chore... I have been searching high and low for a "soft case" that had utilitarian features, but the interior protection of a hard case. This soft case fits the bill. It is lightweight, with an interior cutout that fit my Martin nice and tight...

                GL-Dread Lightweight Dreadnought Guitar Case

                Comments about Gator GL-Dread Lightweight Dreadnought Guitar Case:

                I use Mooradian bags for my semi hollows, (gretsch) and bought the GL Dread for my acoustic. I just purchased another Gretsch 5120 and Mooradian bags were on back order.
                It just so happens I pulled out the acoustic the other night and then tried the 5120 in the GL Dread case. Its a perfect fit, snug and tight. I also prefer the GL dread for gigging as its not as bulky as a Mooradian

                If you are so successful that people pay to hear you play and you travel extensively, you need a hard shell guitar case. For everyone else, this is the case to have, way better protection and more features than the cardboard with vinyl flip tops that are so common with guitars. You won;t be disappointed with this one!

                Great Case For Your Acoustic Axe

                By Paul Lowery

                from Schenectady, NY

                Comments about Gator GL-Dread Lightweight Dreadnought Guitar Case:

                I recently bought this case at my local music shop for my Dean Performer. I got it for a very good price and I am very satisfied with my purchase. I was tired of carrying my favorite acoustic guitar around in nothing short of a guitar shaped canvas bag with abolutely no padding what-so-ever, so with my small lump of Christmas cash I bought this case. The first thing that told me this was a good case when I was making my way from the car to my porch I slipped on the ice and this case went flying and landed on the hard asphault and immedietely i was like "Oh $#@%" and opened the case and found not only the guitar was perfectly fine, but the case was completely unharmed to. Besides that it still proves itself to be a great case for the price. I will definitely buy another Gator Case again in the future.
