    Gator lightweight case

    Got it for my new ibanez baritone (large guitar) also fits martin jumbo and, i guess most big guitars. lighter than a wood case but still solid and protective (unlike a gig bag).

    fits a baritone Martin J-28LSE

    I wanted a light, yet rigid bag for my Martin J-28LSE. The Martin Gelb-style case is beautiful -- and built like a tank -- but when I play writers rounds it's hard not to knock into people or tables when arriving or leaving the club. The Martin case is that big! I took careful J-28 measurements and compared them to the GL-Jumbo's published specs, figured it would just fit, crossed my fingers, and made the purchase. The Gator case fits the J-28 like a glove! Wearing the J-28 in backpack mode keeps my hands free as I go from my car to the venue. Very light load in with ample protection for around-town use.

    This was exactly what I wanted in a case. I like a hard case, but it doesn't have the extra pockets for cables and etc. This case gives you the best of both. You have the protection you need like a hard case with the extra pockets and it's light. The only draw back that I see, is that it uses a zipper to keep case closed. I don't know how well it will hold up. Only time will tell. I wish it had some other small straps located at different spots like the main velcro strap. Other than that, I love it.

    Good case with some drawbacks

    The case protects very well. I ran over the case with the guitar in it one dark night and there wasn't any damage to case or guitar. But the back carrying straps are prone to breaking at the attaching hooks and otherwise coming off at inopportune times. The cover detached from the body of the case fairly soon after purchase but is still holding on. The mesh zip compartment disintegrated with in a couple of weeks and the zipper hand hold broke off the other compartment in a year. All in all it's a decent case for the money but doesn't last forever like a good hard case. But for convenience and carrying a few blocks when you've had to park away from the job and you have to carry a bunch of stuff, you can't beat it - sling it over your back (making sure that the straps are securely attached) and you're set to go. I'm probably going to replace mine with the same thing when it completely wears out.
