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.

Ron ... I've bought two Seagull embroidered gig bags over the past 4 years ... one in light green/taupe, and one in black.  Both have been excellent quality. Heavy duty material with stiff, thick padding all around.  Mine each cost $50 or so.  Wondering if either the cheaper on could be a "knock-off" or if Godin has begun making a less expensive, lower quality bag?

Derick has my kinda taste!!

Hi Jud

I think the 1990s is far better than the 1890s, but that's just my opinion.

Comment by Robert Williamson on Tuesday

was it this one?

Why not report it to Michel at ? im sure he'll forward your concerns to the proper people. Include a picture or two of the poor quality bag.

Comment by Dave Fengler on Tuesday

I guess it doesn't take much to bag a Gull these days!

Poor quality Seagull Gig Bag?  

I ordered a Seagull Gig Bag from Amazon for $30 thinking that the quality is like my other Seagull Gig Bags.  The image on the Amazon site looks like my Seagull Gig Bag but in black.  I just got it today and was disappointed.  The quality was very bad and did not look like the photo.  The padding is almost non-existence and the bag was lighter than a fly.

Needless to say I am returning the bag to Amazon.

What gives?  Why would Seagull ruin its name with such poor quality products?

Last one...this is not quite as unfortunate, IMHO, depending upon your point of view... ;-)

Comment by FloridaGull on Monday

Sad, but true... ;-)
