Protection and convenience for your busy gig schedule

The 600-Denier nylon outer shell is just the start of the protective powers of the GL-CLASSIC. Soft and strong - EPS foam padding forms a barrier between your guitar and the thumps and bumps that happen when you're on-the-go. The foam also provides support and protection for the most vulnerable part of your instrument - the neck - ensuring your guitar stays ready to play. Two accessory pockets grace the front of the GL-CLASSIC giving you plenty of space for your cables, pedals, and strap. The pockets and the case are secured with heavy-duty zippers for easy loading and unloading of your precious passenger. For transport, choose between a sturdy parachute-nylon web handle or the removable shoulder strap. Gator Cases are made to withstand anything, making the lightweight and durable GL-CLASSIC a must-have piece of gear for your gigging life.

Awesome light weight case

I needed a lightweight case for work. I am a music therapist working for a hospital system and need to lug my guitar around all day long from room to room and hospital to hospital. Called Chris at sweet water to see if he would recommend a case that would fit my needs and guitar, he asked about the dimensions of the guitar and recommended this one. Could not be happier, guitar fits into the case like it was custom made for it. I wanted the outer pocket to be bigger, but I put all my music onto my iPad, so now the pocket size is just right for iPad, an iPod, and speaker and related cords and stuff.

Excellent value

I wanted a case for my classical guitar (Yamaha C40). I have a hard-case, but it is huge and clumsy and it seems like I bang it into every doorway between my house and my teacher's studio. This case is great... Fits my guitar like a glove. It is lighter, a bit shorter, sturdy and nice looking. Perfect. I read the spec sheet carefully before ordering and based on my measurements, I thought it would also fit my steel string... Yamaha FS700. Not a dread. Smaller. The Gator case almost worked, but not quite. Also, on my classical, use a DeOro support. (They are the best IMHO.) I had hoped I could leave the support on the guitar in the case. As I noted above, the case fits like a glove, so leaving the support affixed looked problematic. I know people have issues with suction-cup supports coming off at the worst possible time. I have never had that problem, but I'll bet the more frequently you take the support on and off, the more likely it is to come off when you don't want it to. So I decided to adjust the case. Not that hard. Cut the lining so I could pull it back to expose the foam, did a little surgery on the foam to make room for the support affixed and reattached the lining. Oila! Last observation... Sweetwater's delivery was super fast. I will not hesitate to buy from them again.


Well worth the money spent. Great Hybrid (soft/hard) case ! The nice padded outside prevents banging up the interior of your vehicle, the ballistics nylon is real durable feeling. Has back pack style handles too, so you can sling it over your back. The inside is a nice hard case with a soft fleece lining to protect your guitar. One pocket inside and two exterior pockets( the main one is big enough for music books) So there are options for some extra gear storage too. Sweetwater ships for free so its a nice value overall.

Why aren't all guitar cases made this way?

This is a great, lightweight case. My Yamaha C40 classical guitar fits perfectly & is well-cushioned, yet the case itself is fairly light. I can't understand why all manufacturers of guitar cases don't offer this type of structure for all types and sizes of guitars.

Fantastic case

This is a great guitar case for a classical guitar. I'm wondering why all guitar case manufacturers don't make models like this for all the different models of guitars. It's lightweight, but the exterior looks as if it will stand up to pretty rough treatment, and my Yamaha C40 classical guitar fits in the rigid foam interior perfectly. The rigid foam will cushion and protect the guitar as well as a hard case in my estimation. I ordered it on a Monday, and it arrived 2 days later--remember that's FREE shipping! Thank you, Sweetwater and Ben Porter.
