So, I just started to play the guitar. Since I live in greece, where things are kinda tight, I went for a Jackson JS12 Dinky. I would have got a gig bag too, but seeing as the top of the fretboard(don't know the english word) has a quite odd shape, I was wondering if a convensional gig bag would do. Can you guys answer?

Any gig bag does the job. Gator has a warranty on theirs that will cover damages to your guitar if it's due to a manufacturer failure of the bag/case. Gator kicks butt like that.

well, i am not worried about the guitar, I just dunno if it will fit.

can't you just measure your guitar from the bottom strap peg to the tip of the headstock (that's the word for it, btw) and compare with the stats on the website of the gig bag?

Or simply bring your guitar to the store to try it out?

But the dinky is a pretty standard shaped guitar. I would be surprised as hell if any average electric guitar gig bag didn't fit it

only reason why it may not is if there is good support at the neck joint and the case is forcing it down, and applying pressure, i have one or two that are generic that won't fit certain guitars. but i like gator too.

+1 re overly supportive bags ^^

You would definitely want to measure depth if you were buying a hard case to allow for the backward tilt on the headstock but any soft generic bag will be fine.

to be honest, 99% of the time i use a gig bag and not a case, even if i have the matching case. i have a really nice and dense and thick padded. easier to transport.

if i am gigging, HSC only, but around town a gig bag should be fine.

but for a HSC which IMO is needed as well, measure everything you can. if something is too big, stick a shirt in there.
