    Looking for a new situation to transport a Strat and a Les Paul to and from places. Nothing crazy, just good quality straps on it with some padding on the straps.

    What's the word? Personal experiences are better than personal internet browsing but at this point, I'll consider either.

    thanks

    I have the Fender double gig bag, good price and been solid now for a few years. Haven't tried to put a LP in it though.

    yeah, I have the old canvas one, but it is shot, and I'm constantly afraid of one of the plastic strap holders busting off and my stuff crashing down the stairs.

    I’ve got the Mono double case. It’s expensive but built like a tank.

    Sucks to hear, maybe the newer ones are built a bit better?

    To be fair, I've gotten my fair share of use out of it. About 18 years or so I think.

    same here. Love the mono dual. Just be careful if you’ve got a bigger semihollow. Might be a tight squeeze.

    I love everything about my Mono dual bag other than how large it is to store.

    MONO builds great projects, for sure. I own Gator stuff, though. Pro Go dual guitar & single guitar. Have owned both for years & put a lot of miles on them. They get my vote.

    Another vote for the Mono Dual bags. I have 2 and they are killer. I even fly with these.
    Sturdy, enough space, and the company is great as well. They took care of an issue for me, no question!

    If you want a good double bag with protection, MONO.

    I have Ritter and Mono. Ritter does not have the headstock support for a Gibson.

    Mono dual here, and like the op wants I carry a strat and LP. Pricey, but then again what is your strat and LP worth? ;)

    Btw, my bassist saw my mono dual and now he’s got one as well. Quality sells itself.

    i love my mono. feels really well made.


    just be careful if you play baritones, they might not fit. i have a 26.5" scale that fits but just barely.

    I have both the Mono double and the RBX double. The Mono is a tank. But, that being said, if I were to start from scratch, I would just buy the RBX. It's got great protection, it's a little lighter and less awkward at least for me. They are both great bags but I'm not sure the Mono is really worth that much more in price vs. the RBX as it's double the price.

    Dual guitar cases are the best investment a man can make these days.

    I have an RBX and a Mono.

    However if I had to buy a case in the morning it would probably be the Gator Pro Co series. Mainly because the back straps can be adjusted and removed if I don't need them. It's something you don't think about but being able to remove those straps during storage or possibly transport is a life saver. My biggest problem with the mono is how the guitar sits on my back when I stand with it. I am 5' 11" and the back pack sits way to high so when I am loading into my SUV the guitar head crashes into the door. I don't have that problem with the RBX and it just makes putting things in and out of the car a lot easier. I usually load in the guitars last so it's on my back the entire time.

    The gator gives a great option at a price that just destroys the Mono. Plus if you order from sweetwater they can do a better price if you ask them.

    I do agree with the straps thing. It's kind of a pain when loading in an SUV but zero issues when loading into our travel van.
