Default Gig bag option for Rainsong CH-WS?

I need a gig bag for my CH-WS. The combination of the Auditorium body size and short scale make me think this guitar would swim around in a dreadnought bag but is slightly bigger than what would fit in a classical bag. I sent Rainsong an email, but was wondering if anyone had found a good bag that fits these? Looking for something in the $50 range, like the Gator 4G bags.

I don't think a WS would "swim" in a dreadnought bag; the WS isn't a small guitar by any means. It's got a narrower waist than a DR, for sure, and a cutaway. But besides that, they are very similar in size: 19.5" vs. 20" body length, 15.8" vs. 16" lower bout, both 5" deep. It's about the same size as some companies' "Grand Symphony" guitars, if that gives you any comparison. And many of those companies use their dreadnought cases interchangeably with those GS-sized guitars.

Heard back from Dave at Rainsong. Access makes a “small bodied” guitar bag that fits the WS. I’ll be getting one of those.

I use my access “small bodied” guitar bag for both the Shorty and the WS-1000. The WS is a bit snug but no problems with it fitting in or zipping. Good choice.

The Road Runner Boulevard Series dreadnought gig bag (available at Guitar Center) costs $60.00 and it is great, rugged and fits the CH-WS of my son like a glove.
