What is your overall opinion of this product?
Like Mark from LA, I too noticed the noxious smell the moment I opened the box it came in. Airing it out seems to help a little, but not much. The bad smell comes from the rubber components on the bag - the handle, bumpers, and other pieces. Same exact smell as from my son's T-ball tee made from the same kind of rubber - from China, of course. Now, I really like the bag [I got two of them], the padding, the design, the way my guitars fit in them , and the low price was perfect. World Tour just needs a slight re-design or re-source the rubber parts and they will have a winner. The inside, although sturdy, isn't as plush as I'd like, with only slightly finer nylon than the outside of the bag. Other than those 2 grips, there's nothing here to complain about. Good bag, lots of room for accessories, protects well, will probably last longer than I will, but time will tell if the smell eventually becomes a non-issue.
