Reunion Blues Unveils Midnight Series Guitar and Bass RB Continental Cases

The line features numerous design refinements incorporating user feedback gathered over the last two years.

Petaluma, CA (April 4, 2012) – Reunion Blues is expanding its RB Continental guitar and bass case line with a striking new all-black design. Dubbed the "Midnight Series", these new cases still utilize the same drop-tested construction that has made the line so dependable for travel, but also features numerous design refinements incorporating user feedback gathered over the last two years.

In keeping with the Reunion Blues “bullet-proof” reputation, a thick shock-absorbing Flexoskeleton exterior is featured, lined with reinforced impact panels that will withstand the roughest road trip. Plus, an exterior EVA-reinforced multi-pocket features musician-friendly storage for easy access to accessories without having to open the case. A large zippered accessory pocket is also provided, along with adjustable, hideaway padded back-pack straps, and a Reunion Blues Continental Zero-G palm-contoured handle.

Inside, the RB Continental Midnight contains a unique neck brace suspension system which includes a locking strap built on a dense foam block to prevent movement when the case is bumped, or dropped. The interior is crafted with plush, quilted blue velvet lining, a trademark of the entire Reunion Blues RB Continental case line.

Design refinements include a second zipper on the front pocket, creating opposing pulls for easier access while reducing wear. A new D-ring for attaching after-market straps has also been incorporated, allowing the owner to “wear” the case lower on the back for easier passage through doorways.

But the question remains, what school should you choose for your lutherie training? And what might a school have to offer that would best suit your educational needs?
