That’s where our UpStart bag comes in. In this series, we utilize our HardCell™ foam to provide a huge step up in protection over the standard, flimsy, entry-level slip – at a fantastic value that ANY musician can afford.
With our Stage One series of bags and cases, every player can have professional-level protection at an affordable price. Our Stage One gig bag is so well engineered that it has become the most-copied bag and case design in our industry – often sold as a deluxe model in competitors’ lines. By utilizing our OEM experience and assets and eschewing fashion for function, we’re able to deliver extraordinary protection and convenience at the lowest price possible.
The Access Stage Three gig bag is the original Hybrid/Hard Bag. Often imitated today, we invented an entirely new category of bag years ago to eclipse the protection level and feature set of our hardy Stage One gig bags, thereby launching the hard bag revolution. Features like dense polymer panels in the foam shell of our Stage Three Hard Bag and thicker, arched-top plywood tops and bottoms on the Stage Three Case deliver previously unheard of protection and integrity, while the durability of materials and attention to exterior appointments is increased as well.
The most durable gig bag on the market, the Stage Five Hybrid Bag mates a TSA-approved lock to highly engineered and incredibly tough laminated ballistic paneling over an encapsulated, EVA shock-absorbing foam interior. An all-important moisture barrier rounds out the protective feature set – allowing these bags to actually be checked as luggage. Resilient without sacrificing style, Stage Five also remains light and comfortable enough to elicit envy in all other road warriors you pass by.
Stage Five Cases feature our toughest shells and employ strength-enhancing arched tops and backs along with innovative custom-molded inserts to completely immobilize your guitar within the case. The presentation is enhanced by luxurious, crushed velvet linings and textured exterior finishes.
Each bag is guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind due to natural variations in the genuine leather, and each model is available in an array of leather types, finishes, and colors. Sturdy fittings and solid protective features ensure the bags’ protection factor matches the style factor. We’re proud to be one of very few US companies to carry the Harvest Fine Leather lines of gig bags and guitar straps.
