Product Description

For songwriters, troubadours, and players alike, the acoustic guitar is a beautiful thing. Once you've found the one that's right for you, you know it - when the feel and the tone are right, playing feels more natural than ever before. However, you've got to take care of your investment - hollow bodies and thin construction mean acoustic guitars are a good deal more fragile than their electric brethren. The Gator GC-Dread offers durable, sleek insurance against tragedy. Its ABS construction offers great protection in the back of your van, car, bus or other touring conveyance. Gator's patent-pending through-bolted handle system also offers unparalleled protection for the price, binding the interior and exterior of the case where the handle meets for added reinforcement. The GC-Dread also features a Class A plush interior so your guitar rides with the utmost of comfort. Finally, the case is lockable, and features an accessory pocket, for your capo, extra strings, tuner, picks, and whatever else you need to make your music.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Gator products.

"Good case for the money"
Sound: n/a Feature: Has what is typical. Storage comparatment is large and holds what is needed. Ease of Use: Typical guitar case. Latches and hinges. Works like any other. Quality: Well made. Hinges and latches are strong. Durable shell. Value: Good value for the money. Probably not good for airplanes though.

Sound: Not Applicable Feature: Can't beat it for the price. I've paid more and gotten less Quality: I've use all variety of cases over the last 40 plus years and this one is one of the best yet. Compares equally to a case I had with a Gretch Country Gentelman I had back in 65. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed it and don't expect to

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
