Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal has teamed up with Eastsport to release his own signature line of guitar cases.
Twelve custom cases have been released, including the Deluxe Electric Roller Case, which can be wheeled around to gigs and also features extra padding, deeper pockets and a clear window on the front to display gig flyers.
"A big motivation for this guitar case was a car accident two years ago that left me with a permanent neck injury, nerve damage in both arms and pain issues," says Thal. "Carrying a guitar became a challenge. I needed something that could make life easier, and other people's lives easier."

"I've taken years of carrying guitars to gigs, thought about everything that would make it better and put it into this guitar case. Extra padding, deeper pockets, wheels, an attachable gear bag, cable ties, and even a clear window to put your flyer in to advertise your band, gig, teaching... this is the guitar case I wish I had all my life - I never would have walked into a venue with sore arms." says Thal.
