    Hi all,

    I have been trying to search for some variety of gig bag models or brands other than the typical brands such as SKB or Ritter. Does anyone have any suggestions perhaps?

    Thanks for any feedback!

    I like the suhr one cause it has a large outer pocket.

    I'm guessing this one is designated the Musicofanatic model, because it is soooooo me!! Wow!

    Wouldn't need the 'purse" on the outside though. I like gigbags that do not invite me to weigh them down with tons of crap! I am carrying a guitar in a gigbag (as opposed to hsc) because I want a light carry.

    I have personal experience with both Mono and Reunion Blues. Both are EXCEPTIONAL bags.

    I have a slight preference for Mono but you may want to check, I think they are major back ordered. The Reunion Blues ones I've started using are just as nice.

    I've stopped using hardcases for everything but Banshee's (firebirds) years ago, you couldn't pry my Mono double bag from my cold dead hands. 30k+ miles on an airplanes with it and counting.

    I have a Reunion Blues acoustic bag and two Mono bags, a double electric and one for my 335/137. Both companies make a really fine bag, well built and protective. Both of them have features that I like that the other one doesn't have.

    All that being said, if I was buying today, I'd buy Mono.

    +1 for the Mono bags (I have a double for gigs) and PRS's SE gig bag is good enough for rehearsals :)

    I'm die hard Mono now, wish they made an acoustic + electric double bag or a thinline + electric.

    If you want something on the cheap, my parker fly gig bag is surprisingly very good.
