I try to put every decent guitar into a bag or a case.  If I take guitar somewhere I have good hard cases and I only need two good hard cases.  At home, it is mostly to protect against temperature or humidity changes and in case of knockdowns.

I have 2 tric's, a hardcase and a gigbag all empty... and 6 guitars..

that why i built my guitar room.. cases take up too much space

grab  a tan bag before

they are all gone

Any Seagull bag must have the word reinforced. Or it is of poor quality.  Instead of reinforced or no mention, the ad should say reinforced, very high quality and NOT-reinforced and only serve as a cover.

Comment by Jud Hair 17 hours ago

Ron ... Well, at least now we know.  There must be a market for a cheap, poorly made gig bag.  Still frustrating that Amazon sort of "bait & switched" on you ... :-(

Comment by Ron Khoo 18 hours ago

Got the following reply from Seagull.  So Amazon had the wrong picture and the cheaper bag did not look like the bag I received.  Anyway I have sent it back and Amazon has processed my refund.  I will let Michael know.  One problem solved.

Hi Ron,

The tan gig bags have been discontinued. Our current gig bags are all black.

There are two versions available. The 029792 bag is reinforced and has a $69 list price. The 034826 is not reinforced and it has a $39 list price.

I don't like the TRIC case.  I was planning to get a nice hardcase to play musical guitar chairs.  One on my older guitars has a beat up case and I need to get it a new case.  I could move my new element to a nice gull bag, and move the older guitar to the hybrid case I use for the NE.  I like the older robust seagull bag.  Anyway, i sent the bag back and need to rethink my plan.  No rush as I have a beat up case for the old used martin.

Comment by Henk Don yesterday

Ron you should have purchased a TRIC case. Usually, trying to save a few bucks on a case which provides protection, comes back to bite you in the ass.

Comment by Ron Khoo yesterday


Need strong secure bags to make sure the gullies don't fry away.  Flimsy bags are accidents waiting to happen.

Comment by Ron Khoo yesterday


Yes, that was the listing on Amazon.  But the bag sent did not look like the picture.  There were no brown stripes and no netting.  I own 2 gig bags from Seagull -- one dread and one folk -- and the quality as Jud mentions is excellent.  The bag I received yesterday was very cheap.  

I just sent off an email to

I should have taken photos but I have sealed the package for return to Amazon and do not want to unseal it.  

Yup Judd, the bags cost about 50 but were worth the money.  The bag I received is not worth $30.  It is that bad.  I would not store any guitar costing $100 or more in that bag.
