I've dropped my guitar out of the bag cuz I forgot to zip it up
Ooh... I’ve done that with cases.
Yes and yes. I have years of wear on 3 PRS gig bags (2 SE, 1 S2) and am very pleased. Admittedly, the S2 version is an improvement, but I’ve never felt like it wasn’t up to the job. Every dive bar in my area has contributed to the smell of my oldest bag and it still works great.
No doubt the stink contributes to your considerable charm when you carry it...
Mono bags tire me out. I almost got one from kissing someone who had a Mono bag.
As one other poster said (not Alnus - he’s already been name-checked), PRSh uses a gig bag. However, unlike one other other poster (so as not to confuse him with Alnus or Les), so let the fact that PRSh throws guitars around in gig bags sway you. I’ve seen him throw around guitars without any protection.
Now you Alan, you make me blush
I see the damn bridge is out. Again!
Another exquisite derailment complete.
I use a gig bag for taking my electric PRSi to a gig/practice, unless it is a hollowbody - they go in hardcases.
I use gig bags for acoustic instruments too - guitars, mandos, banjos.
Using the gig bag allows me to throw in on my back while lugging the amp & pedalboard.
But I'm not loading into the back of a trailer with amp heads & cabs ready to fall over, or trusting unknown roadies or airline staff to handle it.
I’m much like shinksma.
If the guitar has a shaped hard case, I take that. I travel with a bag over a big rectangle all the time.
Yeah, their bags are great...I remember most of the Experience musical guests using the SE bags (bags made for their Imports, but guests keeping their Core/Personal guitars), running around everywhere,
and their S2 bags are just as nice, if not, a little nicer.
I actually recommend not leaving guitars out on stands all the time, because eventually, dust will get into your electronics and cause all sorts of scratchy noise when you plug 'em in.
The only downside I’ve noticed, is that the straps on the new(er-ish) brown SE bags aren’t as strong as the old ones.
I have two of them that are splitting at the seams, which is a shame because I kinda like the color.
I've been using this for the last several months. I don't have any worries about putting my 594 in it. But I wouldn't go throwing it around.
The SS bag is the bomb! I even bought another w/o the guitar. I take everything out in them. Private stocks, Me's, no fear for any but I am still very careful in handling them. Two guitars ride comfortably in the front seat w no other gear near. No trem arms though till I get there. I like to wedge a folded up polishing cloth between the the bottom of the bag and the butt pin. Just in case it gets set down hard for some extra padding between the floor.
You need some PRS goo
I understand your reasoning, but I'm still very much in a learning phase and I try to practice lessons almost everyday. So just being able to walk by the guitar, grab it, turn on the amp, and play it really helps me to do it everyday.
Leaving guitars out of their cases can lead to damaged finishes from light damage (doesn’t even need to be sunlight — Try reading the Fading Northern Lights thread)
I was raised to always wipe down my strings and case my guitar when done playing it. Apparently I was raised in the caveman days.
I have osteoarthritis in my hands, but it doesn’t dissuade me from taking a few seconds to open or close a case.
I don’t leave dental floss loose on the countertop in order to remind me to floss daily.
