Soft bags for acoustic guitars are perfect for beginners wanting an affordable and effective way to protect their instrument. Unlike hard shell cases made of plastic, soft gig bags use heavy-duty fabric and padding to offer a good and flexible layer of protection. This will keep small impacts from damaging the guitar's surface and finish. The size of the bag is key. Most are designed to fit standard acoustic sizes, but if you have something smaller like a travel or 3/4 guitar, you will need to look for options tailor-made to those sizes. Gig bags are ideal for daily use such as taking the guitar to practice or lessons. Heavier touring or recording, however, may benefit from a more rigid hard case.
