    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.

    Another user of the PRS bag here. Suprising how much stuff I get in there. Currently have:

    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.
