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.

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.

Well made, solid stitching quality guitar Bag like all Gator products. Ideal for dust free storage and light transport. Not built like a tank but for low cost protection, it's a winner.

Built Gator Tough

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:

      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.

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

        Our son is 11 and in year 3 of guitar lessons. We purchased him an entry level electric guitar last June. The bag that accompanied was completely destroyed after 6 months, prompting the need for this purchase. From the time we opened the box, we could see and feel the difference in quality. This Gator bag has heavy duty handles and the single strap is more than sufficient as we transport his guitar back and forth from practices. The zippers are sturdy and don't appear to be able to be easily separated from the bag like our last one. The padding is adequate for our use and the price point was right where we wanted to be. I can easily see this bag being a home run in the cost per use category. I highly recommend it.

                I bought this bag for my Fender Squire, and it fits very snuggly, especially around the cutaway area. There is a good amount of padding and I'm never worried about it getting scratched if I bump it on something. It also has a storage compartment that can fit sheet music, cables and nearly anything else you can cram into it.

                    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.

                          I picked up a very low priced guitar and needed a gig bag to store it in. This bag is very basic.
                          It has padding and is constructed well. At this low price you can not expect a heavily padded, touring gig bag. I use it for storing my guitar and keeping the dust off. You could travel with it if you wanted too. It just would not give enough protection if it was bounced around quite a bit.
                          For the price...it is a good 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!

                                Good for a cheap case to carry your guitar around, not good enough for flights!
