Ever since my first gig onstage, let’s say ‘several’ years ago… (cough, cough). I have always been a guitar player who chooses to use rackable equipment. In this time, I have found that it’s more convenient, durable, and safe to use a well built rack case… Which by the way all those elements add up to ‘trustworthy’. For the last 7 years now I have been a Gator case user (12 space rack system)… I found myself needing more room than my 6-space **** case was providing… Why not another ****, you might ask? At the time, I really wasnt aware of Gator cases, but seeing one on the sales floor of my local music shopwith it’s well builtconstruction, looks and locking system was enough to sell me. When I ordered the size Gator I needed, I found out the price. To my surprise, much, much lower than what I expected to pay. Which was ‘music’ to my ears. Enclosed is a photo of myself onstage with my three favorite pieces of equipment. My ’94 Gibson Les Paul Custom, Marshall Full Stack, and of course my trustworthy Gator Case. Even though, as you can see in the photo, my Gator case might not be up front and personal onstage for all to see. But it’s always there and NEVER lets me down. I really couldnt do a show without it. Even after the show, my Gator case keeps on working, by keeping the equipment inside safe and sound for uploads, and downloads between shows. So in the end, thanks for letting me share my story, and thanks for making such a well constructed case. As I said, I can sum up the relationship with my Gatorcase in one word… Trustworthy.
