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

Extremely nice case

I bought one of these for an American standard tele recently after using one for artist series Jim root Tele two years ago. The zippers are still fine on the older one, the extra pockets on the out side fit music books just fine and the smaller pocket keeps all your accessories just fine cant beat it for the price.

What a great case!

Wow! For the money I can't imagine a much better case. Perfect for gigging around town. It offers plenty of protection for going anywhere except air travel or touring. Nice and light, yet still rigid. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another if needed.

This isn't a gig bag

I was skeptical of this case before I bought it because it looks so much like a gig bag instead of a case. But it's really a case with a foam frame and a heavy weight nylon covering. The foam is much more sturdy than I would have thought. It also makes the case very light, much lighter than a case with a wooden frame. It has very good neck support for your guitar. It has plastic feet on the bottom and it will stand up easily without worrying if it's going to fall over. I'm used to using the metal fasteners on most cases so at first the zipper opener for the case seemed bothersome but I'm used to it now, and the zippers are very sturdy and work great. The two compartments inside the case are sealed by the lid of the case and it seems to work well. I haven't had any thing come out of the compartments and rattle around in the case yet. The only thing that I would question about the case is the shoulder strap. The strap is fine, but the fastener clips on the ends of the strap are made out of thin plastic and I don't know how long they would last with regular use, but I doubt I'll use the strap much anyway. I bought one for my Squire Telecaster and liked it so much that I bought another for my Statocaster. For the money I don't think you'll get a better case.

Gator GL-Elec Gig Bag

Although it's a somewhat snug fit for my Les Paul, you would be hard pressed to find a better hybrid gig bag this close to a hard case. The price is also extremely reasonable.

excellent light case

I am very happy with this case! I already owned one for the bass and needed a new electric case. The price for this is excellent. I have a variety of guitars - mostly strat/superstrat styles. This fits all of them, including room for the strap locks that stick out a little bit further. With every guitar I own, it is a snug fit. This case protects the guitar very well and won't leave a mark on your wall or woodwork if you accidentally bang it there. I would definitely recommend this case.
