Reunion Blues Introduces the Continental Case

Reunion Blues introduces a new rugged, refined RB Continental guitar case, designed to outperform common wood and plastic cases.

Petaluma, CA (August 13, 2009) -- Known as the ultimate musical instrument gig bag, Reunion Blues introduces a new rugged, refined RB Continental guitar case, designed to outperform common wood and plastic cases.

“When we set out to develop a new case, we knew it had a lot to live up to. That’s why we spent 3 years thinking through every detail of the RB Continental.” said Dave Andrus, Reunion Blues Director of Product Development. “The result is a revolutionary fusion of strength and elegance, using the toughest, most stylish materials we could find.

The RB Continental is made with a water-resistant ballistic exterior that surrounds a new, lightweight Flexoskeleton protection system of high-density foam and EVA impact panels that offer enough protection to survive a 40-foot drop without so much as a nick or scratch. (They actually tried it. And when the guitar inside emerged unscathed, they did it again just for fun.)

Inside this new case, a velvet tuck interior lining, solid-cell neck brace suspension system and thick Softmesh-lined side panels cradle the instrument in a cocoon of scuff-proof luxury. And its roomy exterior pockets, Zero G palm-contoured handle, and hideaway backpack straps are designed for getting around in the real world.

All artists copy, but reinterpretation is where the magic lies.

While I have a special place in my heart for the classics, I yearn for reinterpretation that wears its reverence for the past on its sleeve but doesn’t just feel like an imposter. In my own instruments, I try to pay homage to the vintage guitars that inspired me to play, design, and build. That will never change. But it also doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate and even adore new things. This sentiment is true for both guitars and the music they make. Hybrid mashups have existed forever, and a lot of what people think of as original musical examples are in fact reinterpretations of something they just didn’t know previously existed.
