To choose the right cases and gig bags for your needs, start by thinking about where you're going. If you want something to get you to nightly gigs around town, you can narrow down the options to Gator's gig bags. These have the advantages of being lighter, easier to store and a bit more compact than rigid cases. A lot of the Gator gig bags even feature shoulder straps that make them wearable like backpacks. For convenience, it's hard to beat a gig bag.
When you're setting out on a long tour or planning to travel by air with your guitar in your luggage, then it's time to start looking at hard-shell cases. These can be molded to shape, which is the style for Gator's acoustic cases, or simply rectangular like most of their electric guitar cases. Some have retro styling and some are modern: it's all about what you like best. To get the absolute best protection for demanding trips, you'll want to give special consideration to the incredibly solid G-Tour series flight cases.
No matter your style or the sort of guitar you play, cases and gig bags are a fact of life for every guitarist. Traditional wisdom says it's hard to find a great case at an even better price, but Gator has managed to offer just that with a line of guitar cases and gig bags that are affordable enough for anyone and durable enough to survive everything you throw at them. They'll keep your instruments safely protected on the way to a venue, so the only thing you'll need to focus on will be putting on a great performance once you get there.
