    It Fits a Jazzmaster!

    Ditto to all the previous positive reviews, to which I'll add:

    1. The dimensions are as spec'd, unlike several other brands which seem to think that "outside" measurement means "inside" measurement.

    2. It fits my Fender AVRI Jazzmaster. This is very important because I can never remember which arm I last carried it in its hardshell case. So, if I did not give each arm equal time, then at the gigs one arm was always slightly longer than the other and it looked like I was either playing an upright bass or trying to scratch a persistent itch on my left shin.

    It also has the unadvertised bonus of two velco-latching pockets inside the medium pocket w/ pen holders and room for yet more toys.

    Most importantly, It Fits a Jazzmaster! Perfectly!

    Stop shopping around and just buy the thing now from Sweetwater.

    Great product for the money!

    This bag definitely delivers more than I was expecting. It appears to be well made and the padding is thicker than I thought it would be. Here are a few features or details that I don't think were in the product description.

    1) The backpack straps on the back are easily removable if you don't want to use them. My old gig bag had a strap that just hung there and got in the way because I just use the handle.

    2) The largest pocket (there are 3 on the front!) will hold a 1 1/2" 3-ring binder with charts OR several cables and/or stomp boxes...or for you young folks...your iPAD or laptop.

    3) The medium-sized pocket has 3 smaller pockets inside that are good for things like tools, picks, capos, slides, E-bows and the like. And then you can still get strings or cables into the medium pocket.

    4) The third front pocket is also good for a cable or some strings and miscellaneous small stuff.

    5) The inside is reinforced where the headstock will be (both front and back) as well as where the bridge will be. This should work much better than my last gig bag which got shredded on the inside where the cut-off string ends snagged the light nylon.

    This bag fits both my Strat and my Les Paul pretty well. There's a little wiggle room, but not much. While it isn't rigid or a hard case, if it is standing up and falls over with a guitar inside, I think the guitar would be fine.

    I own other SKB gear and it has held up well. When a handle came off of a case after 10 + years of heavy use, they were great and sent me a replacement with no hassle. I'll be using this bag at least once a week and I expect it to do well. I highly recommend it.

    Excellent Guitar Bag

    This is an excellent bag as it is well padded really protects. It has wonderful straps and handles so it can be carried many different ways.
    I love all the pockets to store your guitar gear. A great value.

    very nice bag

    This is a very nice well made bag. Should last for years. Nice pouches in the front and great shoulder straps. I would have no problem purchasing again.

    Great bag for the money!

    The only reason I haven't given a 5-star review is that I only have had the bag for a little while now. Everything about it is great. The only thing is that although the lining is fine for the guitar, we all know that the tuning pegs (and their notorious string ends that poke out) always eat up the inside linings of guitar gig bags. Even though this bag is an inexpensive model, it would've been nice for it to have at least some little extra protection from the tuning peg issue. But again, the bag is great, the deal was great, but the free shipping and customer service that comes along with the deal from Sweetwater is awesome!

    oh my achking arm!

    after carrying my strat in the original hard case my arm became so weak i could no longer take it out of the house!

    after seeing all the kids with their guitars in gig bags like a napsake i called my rep at Sweetwater Phil Schwan and aked about the SKB gig bag and he said it offers the same protection as an original gig bag !

    i got it and now can tote my strat anywhere with this gig napsack , super padded and the zipper pockets make it so useful holding all my gear neat and easy to find , even holds full size music books a definate plus ! love it and would recommend it to anyone tired of lugging that original hard case! Great Product!!!!!!!

    Great Product for the $$

    I ordered this gig bag for my Schecter. Of couse, Sweetwaters service was top notch and I received the order within 3 days. The Gig Bag has plenty of padding and seems very durable to keep your axe protected. It has plenty of pockets for cables/picks/etc. For the price..its a great investment to keep your guitar properly protected.

    Great gig bag! ! !

    Well padded. tight fitting which is great , case itself is more than nice.

    Only one disappointment, wish they would have used metal zipper pulls because I had the small bag pull break off the day I got it!

    SKB gig bag

    Great bag. Well appointed and padded. I didn't give it a 5 because I don't know how long it'll hold up.

    SKB 1skb-gb66 Gig Bag

    First gig bag I've bought, so I wasn't sure what to expect at the price paid for this inexpensive gig bag. It gets some big plus marks for the amount of storage compartments. It will hold a Stratocaster or a Les Paul. The zipper goes fully across the top end and about half way across the bottom end, so it does not open to lie flat and the guitar must be slide into the bag. That is not a negative, just something that I didn't expect. There are no molded in sides within the padding. The carry straps are good if you want to carry your guitar like a back pack. There is a carry handle on the side and another handle on the back near the top that may be used to hang it up. I wouldn't recommend this for a $1000 guitar, but it will provide some pretty good protection from small bumps when carrying a guitar around. I may give this to my granddaughter for carrying her guitar to lessons and get a little higher end gig bag or continue to use hard cases for carrying my guitars places. For the price, this is a pretty good item that is probably quite functional.

    Really good for the price

    Overall, this is a good quality gig-bag for the money. It was a purchase for my son's Ibanez - and it was a step-up (in both pockets and protection) from the plain gig-bag he was using before. From the photos, however, I was almost expecting it to be more like the higher-quality of another G&L gig bag I have - which looks very similar in design. The SKB, however, has a substantially thinner padding - and the interior is a lighter nylon material (as opposed to the thick padding and cloth interior of the G&L bag). The SKB bag is floppy without the guitar inside - and while I wouldn't trust it for any serious protection - it's a good light bag for carrying a sturdy guitar around. Again, for the price, a good deal.

    Not as good as I thought

    The bag is just average, the padding is very light and is not what I thought it would be. The plastic strap attachments and even zipper to me are just not high quality. It will not even stay up by itself. I have seen much better, stronger and heavier padding than this bag. I have a USA CASE that I have had over 20 years, solid and it is still like new.

    A little light on padding

    Not a bad looking gig bag, but I didn't care for the lightweight padding. They could put more without adding much to the price. It otherwise seems well made, not for heavy use. I'm sending it back.

  • Craig

    You get what you pay for.

    The price of this bag is low for a reason. Padding is good. Carry handle is good. A couple of the zipper pulls broke off during first or second use. I figured I could still use the compartments with a little more effort minus the zipper pull. Then, right at one year of what I would consider gentle use (not used for touring, or long distance travelling) the plastic shoulder strap connectors began to break. I'm carrying a guitar that weighs 7.6 lbs on a 25 minute round trip walk once a week. It's ok. I can use some stronger caribbean clips with the woven eyelets. Then, the plastic strap adjustment clips break. Ugh! I called SKB and Sweetwater to see if there was anything they could do but because a year had passed, nothing. I understand. Nothing lasts forever. I kept using it until the seams started coming apart and foam padding was coming out. Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Sweetwater. Always a positive experience. Zero love for SKB and this bag. It's probably a good bag for storing a guitar you never use in a closet somewhere. I have several guitars in all kinds of cases. Even some hardshell SKB cases that I'm thinking of getting rid of. The free gig bags I have with shop logos on them are way more reliable and cheaper (FREE!)

    Not durable

    This could be the solution for Les Paul owners, but alas, the quality is terrible. I have gone through three of these cases in under a year; the zipper keeps breaking making it impossible to use.

    Too bad, could have been the one.
