Been playing guitar for 26 years and I play about 60 shows a year. I just recently bought the Taylor 814-CE as I'm a performing musician and I was looking for the best case available to protect my investment and this case is AWESOME! The inside of the case is amazingly soft and it even has a cushion where you would plug in the guitar to protect it when you set it down on the ground. It's built very solid, has a ton of pockets to store anything you need from capos, slides, cables, ipad, folder, albums (as I always keep albums on me to sell) and it even has a rain cover too! I like the fact you can adjust the shoulder straps as it has 2 places on each side to hook the strap to so you can find what is comfortable to you. It's also much more comfortable to carry on my back, as it sits straight up instead of dragging me backwards a bit, than my other case I have. All in all I'm very happy I bought this case as it's my new favorite gig bag!
