Gator Economy GWE-000AC Acoustic Guitar Case

Gearank Recommendation

The Gator Economy GWE-000AC appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic Guitar Cases & Gig Bags from March 2019 until November 2021.


The Gator Economy Wood Case line is a budget friendly option that's doing well in the market, thanks to its good balance of quality and cost.

It has a straightforward design, crafted from plywood, with black tolex covering.

As expected, the interior comes with plush padding, to prevent damage on your guitar, and it houses a compact accessory compartment around the neck area.

It comes with locking latches with keys, to keep unwanted people from getting access to your instrument.

Note that this particular model is meant for "Auditorium" or concert profile guitars, these are smaller than the typical dreadnought.

  • Middle Bout: 9.5"
  • Upper Bout: 11.5"
