    I have been using a laptop bag for my chords, Mic and cable as well as a small folding guitar stand. the one I have been using had a cell phone pocket that was I deal for a TU 12 tuner. I also carried my powerstrip and pens, cards, and extra strings. Well after 5 years the handle broke so I am looking to replace. Any new bags out there that could fill the bill?

    This is a real similar bag - I have been using one of these for close to 3 years now. I have checked it and carried it on over a hundred flights - probably the best piece of gear that PV Makes:

    I've got one of the Taylor gear bags - it's a great piece of gear! I've used mine for about a year now and I still love it.

    Access makes the same bag as the PRS and Taylor. I think that Access makes the Taylor bag and PRS copied it. Or vice versa.

    Look on ebay for camera bags that look the same.

    3 guitar leads
    Shure 57 + lead
    2 power leads
    3 speaker leads
    1 Y speaker lead
    Strings
    Boss TU2 Tuner
    Spare valves
    Numerous sets of strings
    Guitar toolkit
    Plectrums
    Spectacles (I'm long sighted!!)


    Think that's it

    I have the Taylor bag which is pretty much the PRS Bag except for colors. I use it for acoustic gigs. Mine carries a lot.

    2 mics, Strobostomp, guitar cable, 2 mic cables, my monitors, backup DI, strings, speaker cables, furman pluglok, batteries and recharger, a couple balanced cables, and an extension cord. Anything I don't want getting banged up in there I put in a crown Royal bag first.

    I really couldn't jam anything else in there. Not if I want it to stay closed. But it is really heavy with all that crap in it.

    For those into firearms, I use a shooters bag I got at a gun show. Several organized compartments of different sizes, for pedals, picks, tuner, strings, tools, capo, etc.
    They resemble camera bags an awful lot.

    I've got a PRS bag, too. I wanted to be just like Alec.

    "If Alec jumped off a building, would you copy that, too?"

    "Aw, mom...not the building thing again..."

    Hey rockster12,

    I use a Musician's Friend gear bag that I bought from their website for around $30.00. The MF gear bag has good amount of space, features and a fair price.I had used the Fender gear bag for a few years, but the seams ripped apart from the amount of stuff that I put inside it. The Fender bag is a cheap, poor design even though it had a lot of space inside. Hopefully, my MF gear bag will hold up to all the jams, rehearsals and gigs I subject my equipment to.

    I have the Access bag now, had the PRS bag since 1996 and finally retired it this past summer. Same bag basically, the Access is a higher quality bag.
