    OK, I screwed up (maybe). I should have asked your opinion first. But, no, I went ahead and ordered a Ritter Gig bag sight unseen.

    Has anyone seen/used one and do you have any comments to its quality and workmanship?

    Yeah, same here. They looked really cool. They are not yet distributed in the US. I called them in the UK, credit card in hand.

  4. We sell Ritter bags in our shop. Have had no returns or complaints about them.

    Marty,
    That is hardly a ringing endorsement ;)

    I guess my question is "would you feel comfortable putting a $4,000 Us bass in one ?"

    BTW I ordered a Star Pak in Metallic Red

  6. Sorry Mike, yeah, they're as good as any bags I've seen, except maybe the Pedulla. I'd be OK with it for local gigs.

    Thanks for the info, Marty.

    I wonder if Pedulla (like so many others) use the UnderCover bag
