sorry for this post that maybe is not so concerning about music of Kurt or music in general. I just need a little help cause i really know nothing about gigbag and cause here there are so many great guitar players i think this could be the right place for some good advices.
Recently i have discovered that i need a gigbag, i can't carry the case anymore, too heavy and not confortable to walk. I want my guitar to be really well protected and so i would like to know from all of you, which gigbag could be good for an ES-175.
If i don't remember badly, i saw Kurt using a Levy's gigbag to carry his D'Angelico NYSS, i could be wrong. I have checked many different kind of gigbag but then some questions arised:
1) Does a gigbag ( leather or polyester or other ) provide some rigid shell? I mean there is a shell of some kind of material to protect the instruments or it's just like a "fatty cover"? In my mind the best gigbag must be something like a case ( more more more light in weight ) with comfortable shoulder straps. Is it so?
2) I have seen some nice gigbags on the internet and i am mainly thinking about these models:
Reunion Blues Continental RB 254 ( Does it fit a ES-175 ?)
Probag - hand made on demand ( it seems nice, still waiting some more informations from the producer that i have contacted by email )
Levy's - maybe the Levy's LM20 model or maybe CM20L
So the last questions are:
do you have some advice about the model or the brand or other? Which one model could be protective enough, light and maybe also not costing too much?
Me, and mainly my arms : ), we will really appreciate every kind of suggestions
All the Best
