Guitar Case vs. Gig Bag — Or the Best of Both Worlds.
A lot went into making your baby. Not to mention the significant investment that went into acquiring it. So let’s talk about protection.
More than just obsessive, precision-focused master craftsman, the world’s great guitar builders are, yes, artists. There can be no debate on the matter, as far as this grateful beneficiary of their genius is concerned. Incalculable are the hours they spend over a lifetime learning, testing, cutting, shaving, tapping, carving, painting, finishing and, most importantly, listening. Just selecting 5-star, master-grade woods is not enough. The really good builders tap and test for the finest, most complex harmonic voiced tone woods, selecting only the best of the best for their work.
As much of a tone junkie as I am, I’ve had surprising few of these really great guitars in my life. Sure, I’ve got my ever-growing wish list (who doesn’t?), but currently I’m addicted to my Don Grosh ElectraJet. All Don’s guitars just drip with tone. And for protecting my ElectraJet, as well as your prized 6-string possession, I’ve created “The Revelator” guitar bag.
As a musician who gigs regularly, I need the convenience of a gig bag I can throw over my shoulder. But here’s the rub: I won’t trust my valuable guitars to a bag that won’t protect them fully. One awkward slip-up and your baby is off to the shop.
So “The Revelator” was designed as a special hybrid between a gig bag and a hard shell case. Inside “The Revelator”, your guitar sits in a bed of comfort. Outside, like a hard shell case, “The Revelator” affords total protection under the most extreme conditions.
“The Revelator” accommodates a standard body electric guitar: Les Paul, Strat, Tele-sized guitars.
(Side note: if you’re playing a 335 or Gretsch style hollow body guitar, hang tight — we’re hard at work to have those ready for 2013).
