Getting your guitar in a good guitar case

The best way to get somewhere with your guitar is a solid guitar case. A cover is a good start but protects your guitar only partially. If you let fall hard guitar or have a big collision with something or someone, a sleeve protects but limited. A solid guitar case is an excellent protection. Even if you have to speak is going to throw it, then your guitar survives it. The cost for a good suitcase is very subjective. Rather a well-protected guitar for a few bucks more than a damaged guitar.

Buy a good standard guitar

There is much difference in standard guitar, but that’s not for nothing. For 10 euros you have a small standard, but there are also guitar standards for sale that are three or four times more expensive. The difference lies partly in the soundness of the materials and construction, but especially in the protection that the standard provides the guitar. A good rule ensures that a guitar can not fall out when you walk into. This can be a U-shaped stirrup structure which is on the guitar, but also by a valve or clamp that allows you to attach the neck to the standard. Especially on a small stage walk (or run someone) often against your guitar. If it is a low standard, that will provide little protection. So avoid having a good standard to make you fall over and guitar with his precious neck just Scheps or falls hard, with all its consequences! (more…)
