A gigbag is a type of bag designed to protect musical instruments, particularly guitars. They are typically made from durable materials such as nylon or polyester, and often have padding to help safeguard the instrument. Gigbags usually have handles and/or shoulder straps for easy transport, and may also have compartments for storing accessories such as strings, picks, and sheet music. Whether you’re a gigging musician or simply someone who likes to keep their prized instrument safe at home, a gigbag can be a valuable investment.

It’s called a gig bag because of the way it protects your guitar when you take it out to a “gig” or live performance.
