That's New Gig Bag Day. My Cronkhite leather case arrived for my Guild Starfire yesterday. Previously I had been hauling it around in a huge purple Calton case, which is awesome for the road, but for around town gigs is a complete PITA. This case is wonderful. It's extremely sturdy and protects the bass very well. I've used tons of other gig bags and none of them have offered this level of protection. Downside: a little pricey, but if you consider that it will easily last the rest of my life (I'm 51), then it's not bad at all. It will probably last for most of my son's life (he's 7 months).
