Reunion Blues Releases RBX Series of Gig Bags

Each bag is constructed using the RBX Protection System, which features a lightweight, ultra-protective multi-layer foam surround, and strategically placed impact panels.

Petaluma, CA (December 26, 2013) -- For nearly 40 years, Reunion Blues has crafted the world’s finest gig bags. With the official debut of the new RBX Series, they have once again demonstrated the brands unrivaled design innovation. “The RBX Series represents a fusion of our passion for quality, and the desire to make an affordable, lightweight, and protective gig bag perfect for musicians on the go”, says Director of Product Development Dave Andrus. The essence of this passion is reflected in the sleek aesthetic design of RBX bags, from the Quilted Chevron exterior, to the padded Blue Luster lining.

Beyond striking visual aesthetic, RBX 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 keep the guitar 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.

Street prices will range between $99.95 (electric models) and $119.95 (acoustic models).

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
