Plenty of musicians dream of heading out for a tour and travelling from one place to another, playing shows on different stages every night. Tour life might be exciting and nice, but it also brings some dangers. Besides the aspect of possibly harming your own health, you have to also remember to take care of your instrument – seeing as it’s your main tool. Thus many guitarists take it seriously to own a good bag, which would definitely spare you lots of trouble, like damaging your instrument in the middle of a tour.

Soft case bags might be the most popular choice for a guitar. They’re most commonly made of light, but sustainable materials, like for example nylon. Some models are equipped with extra protection in the form of foam attached to the sides. Despite being relatively cheap and convenient, simple bags might not offer you the best protection while carrying your instrument around, your guitar might still get damaged if it for example falls down or gets hit with some other heavy object. Soft cases are recommended for musicians that are sure they’re not going to face such situations, for example if it’s only transported within short distances or gets carried around in hands at all times, where any additional weight is also crucial to avoid.
Hybrid gig bags are a sort of a compromise between a standard bag and a guitar case. The acquire advantages of both sides, such as light weight, sustainable materials, but also hard interior construction, which might do a better job saving our instrument from possible damages. They’re as easy to carry around as soft bags, so they might be the right choice for musicians who travel a lot and want to secure their instrument well enough.
When we need to find a suitable bag, we also have to think about the correct size. It’s very important, seeing as both, too small or too big, might be harmful and damage the guitar. In that purpose it’s the best to measure the instrument and fit it well with the right product.

It’s also worth noting, that some producers have assigned bags and cases for their own exclusive models of guitars, this way you can easily find a proper product designed for a given model of for example Fender or Gibson guitars.
A guitar bag is definitely a necessity in every guitarist’s equipment. Doesn’t matter if you’re a bassist or play electric or acoustic guitar – you should protect your instrument. Even if you don’t feel the need to transport your guitar from a place to place, it’s still worth to at least keep it away from dust.
