You know what? I'd be okay if PRS offered ANY model in a gigbag instead of a hardshell case. I currently have a Core guitar on order and would be just fine taking delivery in a gigbag. Include it in the base price - you want a bag or a case? I don't think I've taken a guitar out of my house in YEARS in a case. That, and it's like my house has been overtaken by guitar cases. Just a thought.
