If you play one of Fender's classics, their own cases make perfect sense for packing it up between gigs. Not only can you be certain of an exact fit, but you've also got access to authentic Fender styling that's a perfect match for the aesthetic of a vintage Strat or Tele. Take the Fender Pro Series Stratocaster/Telecaster Tweed Guitar Case for instance. This rigid case has an unforgettable traditional look, and it'll be right at home next to one of Fender's legendary tweed amps.
Of course, it goes without saying that not every guitarist's primary axe is a Tele or Strat, so if you're in need of case for something else, you'll want to check out some other options, such as the Fender Mustang/Jag-stang/Cyclone Standard Guitar Case or a nice lineup of soft-shelled choices including the Urban Guitar Gig Bag, Metro Gig Bag and Traditional Gig Bag, which can fit a huge variety of different instruments from Fender and your other favorite luthiers, as well.
Between rigid cases and soft gig bags, which is better? There's no right answer to this question because it depends on where the case will be going. As a rule of thumb, the longer and rougher the travel, the more you need a hard case. On the other hand, a gig bag's light weight makes it perfect for local gigs or quick trips to the next town over. In the end, the choice is yours to make, so be sure to keep your travel plans in mind when choosing. As long as you do that, it'll be no problem to decide which Fender electric guitar case or gig bag is the perfect one for your needs.
