The ACCESS Story ACCESS Bags and Cases evolved from years of experience designing and producing OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) products for many of the Music Products IndustryÕs leading brands. Chances are you own and use music accessory products made by ACCESS for one of our many OEM partners. The same focus on quality, value and innovation thatÕs guided our OEM manufacturing for more than 20 years is the cornerstone of every ACCESS product and that commitment is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
The ACCESS mission: Offer musicians the finest guitar bags and cases to satisfy their needs at every stage of their musical journey.
Guitar Cases In 2004, ACCESS introduced Stage Oneª: the first traditional real wood, full-featured hardshell guitar case retailing for under $ 100.00. Thanks to our OEM economies-of-scale, the Stage One line continues to evolve and improve.
Stage Threeª & Stage Fiveª hardshell guitar cases are designed and built to exceed the needs of the worldÕs most demanding guitar builders. The incorporation of proprietary blends of hardwood plies in the shells and open and closed-cell foam in the interiors provide superior strength and protection at an affordable price-point. Every Stage Three and Stage Five case features the removable HeelPadª to insure a custom fit for every style of acoustic guitar.
CoverRingª sealed seam process secures and seals the seam of the exterior covering material on Access cases. The exterior covering seam line on traditional wooden hardshell cases is a problem area. These seam lines usually meet at the bottom edge of the case. ThatÕs a high-contact area and when the exterior material gets snagged or the glue weakens, the covering will separate. Our solution was to first move the covering seam up the sidewall of the case and away from the vulnerable bottom edge. We then seal the seam line using the CoverRingª process. Problem solved.
Guitar Bags ACCESS introduced the use of composite blends of foam in its Stage Oneª bags, providing guitarists professional-grade protection at popular prices.
ACCESS pioneered hybrid guitar bag technology with Stage Threeª and Stage Fiveª. Proprietary HTª (Hybrid Transporterª) Type-1 & Type-2 shells combine layers of composite foam with solid barriers to produce the first real hard bag. Innovative features like MagBagª magnetic strap keepers, MicroBallª neck yokes, HeadLockª neck fasteners and Branditª accessory pockets raise the bar for the hybrid bag category.
