    well when my Suhr comes in next month, I was thinking I should get a nice gigbag....its so easy to bang up those cases, I know its kinda defeating the purpose but Ive always like gigbags...any suhr classic compatible gigbag suggestions?

    I have a Levy gigbag...lots of thick padding on the inside and leather on the outside.

    Reunion Blues. Very pricey, but it's worth it. Very sturdy and tons of form fitting padding. I dropped that bag a couple of times with a guitar in it, and nothing happened to the guitar.

    +1 for the Reunion Blues. I have both the single, and the double gig bags. The durability and high quality is worth the price tag. My Suhr's fit comfortably, with no trouble :)

    I think they have quit making them but the incase are head and shoulders above everything I've tried including Levys and Reunion Blues (both are very good bags but the incase is better)
    There is a bag from Protec called the contego that looks to be a clone of the incase thinbag that will probably be the next bag I purchase.

    I could never use a gig bag even for my cheapy guitars. To me a gig bag is the last thing I'd take to a gig. When I can I get ATA's for everything, let them take the abuse and save the nice cases for at home.

    Just regular old small bars but gear is always getting piled together or people are spilling drinks on stuff....with a gig bag I'd feel compelled to walk around with my guitar the whole time and even then some drunk guy could easily crash into me.

    I use a gig bag all of the time with my electric (incase) and even for a long time when I was playing the acoustic scene I carried my Lowden in a Reunion Blues. The only reason my acoustic is in a hard case now is because the RB was stolen, Lowdens are difficult to fit, and I can't justify another $200+ for a gig bag for an acoustic.

    thats cool, I always find a safe place for my gigbag, either being behind my amp or over by our mixing board, usually thats a no patron zone!! I'm more worried about my guitar sitting up on a stand in between sets....

    I have a Levy's double gigbag that I use for my strats and it's great! You can have them at reasonable prices, check eBay. Bolt on's will do fine, but set necks always cased.

    Maybe I'm anal retentive but something about the thought of a Suhr guitar and a mere gigbag for protection sounds macabre.

    I usually always use gigbags for my Fenders or Fender clones. They are pretty tough guitars.
