Reunion Blues Expands RBX Series

Two new double gig bag models for both electric and bass guitars.

Petaluma, CA (September 11, 2014) -- In a further expansion of the widely popular new RBX Series, Reunion Blues welcomes the arrival of two new double gig bag models for both electric and bass guitars. Reunion Blues is known for crafting the world’s finest gig bags, and the RBX Series continues to demonstrate the brands unrivaled design innovation. “The response to RBX has been so overwhelmingly positive, it was time to take the series to the next level. One of the most frequent requests we get is for lightweight and affordable double gig bags, so these were a natural next step for us” says Vice President Dave Andrus. From their sleek aesthetic design, to the quilted chevron exterior and padded blue luster lining, all RBX gig bags reflect Reunion Blues’ passion for outstanding quality and superior protection.

Beyond striking visual aesthetic, RBX double bass and guitar gig bags are defined by their finely tuned blend of form and function. Each bag is constructed using the RBX Protection System, which features a lightweight, ultra-protective multi-layer foam surround, and strategically placed impact panels. For targeted protection, a dense foam neck cradle and endpin rest in each compartment keep both guitars safe and secure within the bag.

RBX is designed for musicians on the go. Whether traveling by car, train, bus, or bike, RBX bags are easy to carry, and keep gear protected. Padded backpack straps, an integrated subway grip and Reunion Blues signature Zero-G handle make getting around town a breeze. A large, low profile front pocket includes a cable loop and organizer to keep all your accessories right where you need them, and provides ample storage without adding bulk. Best of all, RBX gig bags are priced to sell, and include Reunion Blues Limited Lifetime Warranty.

My years-long search for the “right” Bigsby-outfitted box finally paid off. Now how do I make this sumbitch work in my band?

Considering the amount of time I’ve spent (here and elsewhere) talking about and lusting after Gretsch hollowbody guitars, it’s taken me a remarkably long time to end up with a big Bigsby-outfitted box I truly love. High-end Gretsches are pricey enough that, for a long time, I just couldn’t swing it. Years ago I had an Electromatic for a while, and it looked and played lovely, but didn’t have the open, blooming acoustic resonance I hoped for. A while later, I reviewed the stellar Players Edition Broadkaster semi-hollow, and it was so great in so many ways that I set my sights on it, eventually got one, and adore it to this day. Yet the full-hollowbody lust remained.
