Just got a gorgeous Brian Setzer Black Phoenix and want angig bag for it as the hard case is heavy as hell. I know some don‘t like this idea, but I carry also my vintage Gibsons in Mono Bags without problems. The Mono I have for my 335 won‘t fit… Anybody know wchich nice gig bag would fit? I saw a few Gretsch bags but not sure as the guitar is huge…Thanks!

A Black Phoenix is Falcon sized with a 17” inch(43cm) lower bout width, so no…

Don’t focus on Gretsch branded bags. Look for reputable gig bag brands. Mono is expensive, look at Gator or Ritter for a bit less money. Don’t go cheap for a Black Phoenix unless you have good insurance. :)
A Jumbo acoustic has about a 44cm lower bout width(a Dreadnaught about 40 cm so too small)

NOOOOO!! NEVER!!
Bags are for laundry or trash… your guitar is obviously neither….

I have a Black Phoenix and that is not going in a gig bag. Yes I work out but even if I was a stick figure back in 8th grade, I would not consider my Black Phoenix in a hard case as heavy.

Congrats on get the Black Phoenix but just consider a case for it if you can.
