Everyone has different preferences and priorities, so to make choosing easier we have attempted to give a frank review of the products. Let's start with the Gator Electric Guitar Lightweight Polyfoam Case (GL-ELECTRIC). Gator is a great, wholesome family company with an inspiring back story. They were established in the year 2000 by the father and daughter duo Jerry Freed and Crystal Morris. Initially, they would frequent guitar shows around the US spreading the word of their products, slowly expanding into the brilliant company they are today.
Now we will have look at an alternative, the Gator Cases Deluxe ABS Plastic Stratocaster and Telecaster Style Electric Guitar Case. As stated in our other Gator gear reviews they are a great company. For 18 years now they have been turning out brilliant products such as guitar, keyboard, and amp cases and they also cater to other interesting markets with offerings in the DJ, mixing, screen projection, lighting and utility categories.
They specialize in both hard and fabric cases and since then have expanded into one of the best all round guitar accessory and storage outfits in the industry. Through acquisitions, mergers and business savvy they now offer a wide range of products such as stands, pedalboards, picks, effects pedals and a whole suite of other gear, although cases is still the heart and soul of the company.
With a host of relevant company takeovers and an OEM division to add to their already encyclopedic knowledge of the instrument case and accessory industry Gator products really are top of the line. If you are looking for quality and value for money then their name should be high on your list.
