    I've spent the last three days obsessing over gig bags, and in my travels came across this pic of a Suhr in a Suhr gig bag:

    We're getting suckered by these builders every which way. $4,000 and they won't throw in frets. :bitch

    One just sold in the Emporium and looked very similar to that. Gorgeous axe.

    I should really comment here that the Suhr gigbag is absolutely the best I've owned. It somehow manages to be small from an external-size perspective, spacious in terms of pockets, and solid feeling like you wouldn't believe. I can easily see myself only buying these from now on, hardcases just aren't required for me anymore. If John is listening....please make an acoustic version of your gigbag! :)

    When I saw the gig bag I did a double take thinking it was my guitar...but it's not. This is the factory photo of mine. Its much more brown in person.

    Beautiful!

    What's the model designation? I need to be on the lookout for one of these beauties.

    Beautiful, but I think I would want a hard case if I had one.

    Great gig bag and great axe. Love the modern. I recently brought home this one (only $2k used)

    It's my udnerstanding that Suhr employs fret guards in shipping not sure that's what's going on here but perhaps there are frets there.

    Not a bad idea. My T5 had a fret ding somewhere between Taylor, the shop, and me buying it.

    Pretty sure the one in the gig bag is a modern carve top.

    Nice indeed, a little too nice. I'd be afraid I'd scratch that thing.
