    Decent gig bag for a V?

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a gig bag for my ESP Ninja. The case I have is great, but it's ABSOLUTELY FUCKING ENORMOUS (it's just short of twice as wide as the case for my M-1000) and is 100% of the reason this guitar never really gets played out. Transporting it is a nightmare.

    I see this gig bag here: [VIDEO]] World Tour Deluxe Flying V Electric Guitar Gig Bag: Musical Instruments[/VIDEO] but at $30, I'm having a hard time believing it'll do a good job of protecting my guitar.

    I'm not afraid to spend a little bit of money, but I'm definitely not in the market for another hardshell, even if it is a bit smaller. Any recommendations?

    You should stick with the hardshell, because a gig bag will not protect a V body at all.

    Dood, 5/5 stars, $30.
    What's stopping you? Otherwise try gig bags for basses.

    Personally, I'd never carry any of my Vs in a gig bag.

    That one looks great! I'll need to do a few measurements before I pull the trigger, but that's a strong contender.

    And yeah, I know gig bags aren't always ideal. Thing is, I drive a focus and I can't fit the case for the V anywhere in the car - backseat, trunk, nothing. If I want to gig with this guitar, taking that case is totally out of the question.

    I ended up with the overized Gator gig bag for my BC Rich V, but those ones posted look better. One day I will buy the matching case though, but for now I'm not gigging it so
