I'm gonna need a bigger raincoat...

Recommended Posts

It's Wednesday and we rehearse, so of course, if I'm taking guitars out, Mrs can guarantee it will rain at 6pm.  Tonight I'm taking my rct signature Black Strat, so I don't care about the rain because Fenders are pretty robust and all.

So I thought of something in my spare time which is all of it.

Guitar Case Raincoat.  Yes, bright yellow like when we was  young and fine, made out of that shiny plastic-y stuff, shaped like a Fender rectangle, single opening in it for the handle, open at the bottom.

Could even put like logos or initials on it.

There you have it.  My brilliant idea du jour of the...quarter, maybe half year or so.  Free of charge.  Make 'em, I'll B test 'em for you, and I'll buy a couple.

You know, that's not as stupid an idea as it sounds.

:-k

EDIT : FWIW when I first saw the title I thought you were announcing an impending visit to Scotland. True!

Sacrifices my friend, sacrifices.  Who needs electricity when there's a bottle of the good stuff in hand?

Those are nice for sure.  But if I'm paying 175 for a cover, I'm going to have to pay 50 to cover my 175 dollar cover.

I was thinking lightweight, not too expensive(I don't know how much that is), and not really adding value to anything, just a rain coat for the case.

eh.  I'll forget before the weekend.

Great idea. While you’re at it please bring some rain this direction.  To test it and drink Champagne at the same time.

I wish I could bring great clouds of rain out there to you guys.  We could go up to Iron Horse and sample the morning fog picked nectar.   Best. California. Champagne Ever.

good bit of investigative work there jdgm.

 

I thankyou....\:D/......they are a bit pricey though. 

Think I'd need a matching amp mac for my guitar case mac. 

Of course (cut-glass English accent)  one would prefer Burberry, naturally......

........but I've got some old black plastic garden sheeting out in the shed and a roll of gaffa tape.

Goodnight!

=D>

Glad it is a guitar raincoat.

This  man steals an almost Euro 9000 Gibson in Sint Niklaas, Belgium guitar shop using …. yes his raincoat.

I don't see the point of using a guitar case to protect  your guitar, if you have to buy something else to cover and protect the case.  Where does it end?

If your guitar case is old and leaky and won't keep a little rain off your axe, then maybe you need a new case.
