Whether you are an amateur or a rock star, protecting your guitar while you lug it around to gigs, rehearsals, coffee shops, or a friend’s house is as important as always having your strings in tune. That is to say, guitars don’t come cheap so you better take care of the one you have. Traditional cases can be heavy and awkward, but backpack style soft cases are often cheap-looking and just…ugly. If you have a little extra cash, it might be worthwhile to splurge on a beautiful leather guitar case like this Whipping Post Leather Case in Georgia Brown ($825). The case is made from 100% Full Grain Leather and uses 1-inch-thick high-density foam padding to protect your guitar. The case has a large front pocket for music, tabs, lyric pages, etc. and two smaller pockets to fit capos, picks, and other small items. The attached strap can be worn as a shoulder strap or used as a backpack for versatility. Stainless steel hardware, hand-sewing, and marine-grade thread finish off the high-quality details of this rugged-looking case. The case is also available in caramel and sand color leather finishes.
