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-DREAD-12. 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-DREAD-12 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-DREAD-12 a must-have piece of gear for your gigging life.

I've had this case for my Ibanez 12-string for over a year now and i couldn't be more pleased! I love the fact that it fits my 12, plus the ease of carrying it around with the back straps. Very durable and fits tons of accessories. I'm actually ordering one for my Martin 6-string dreadnought because this case is MUCH lighter than carrying around one of the Martin cases.

Great Case !!!

Got a good deal on this case with my Martin Guitar... I like it for a few reasons... Sturdy and will stand up on its' own... has a neck rest and place for strings or picks not counting the pockets on the outside... Zipper seems pretty sturdy too...

Perfect fit, well built, couldn't ask for more.

Nice Lightweight case

I like it better than most because of its size and weight.Most cases for 12 strings are heavier than the guitar itself. This one has some nice storage compartments also for those little things.

Bought this case for my Epi 12 string. Turns out, i did not have a case for my Epi Hummingbird, guess what? It fits perfect ! I think im gonna have to buy another down the line. Oh well, This is an excellent case for the money. Sweetwater, as usual, great job.
