Guitar Center is the best

By Carol Owens

Comments about Alvarez FC1 Folk Arched Acoustic Guitar Hardshell Case:

This is the second purchase I have made from this excellent company. From advice, superb customer service, great care of the product, fast shipping, perfect wrapping, and accurate descriptions of their stuff, they fill the bill for me. More companies should adopt their principles. The guitar case is a superb buy, I am surprised it is not more expensive. Sturdy, not too heavy, and great looking. Thanks, Guitar Center! (and the Little Martin I bought from you is grrreat!)

      Comments about Alvarez FC1 Folk Arched Acoustic Guitar Hardshell Case:

      Purchased this case to store my Alverez Artist 66 Folk guitar in. Main purpose was for protection. After I seasoned the case and then used the Boveda 49% humidity control packets I am confident that my guitar is well protected and cared for. I live in a part of the country were humidity control is essential. This case fits the bill perfectly. Very pleased with every aspect of this case from the cosmetics to the fit. Gave it a five star rating based on my needs and expectations.

              I bought this case along with new twelve string and it fits perfectly. I love the vintage look. It cost no more than an Alvarez case cost me 40 years ago. It is of good quality at a great price.

              Comments about Alvarez FC1 Folk Arched Acoustic Guitar Hardshell Case:

              A well made beautiful case that fits the guitar I bought it for. An excellent price and free shipping. It arrived in 4 days beating the 3-7 day allowance. The tan color and leather bindings are as nice as the guitar I'm putting inside and that is saying a lot because I dearly love the guitar. Both the case and guitar were made by Alvarez and are exceptional values. I had it shipped to my local store because my home address confuses UPS. The rep that helped me at the store couldn't believe the quality and appearance of the case for the money. You will not find a better made or more attractive case for the money anywhere.

              Did not fit my acoustic guitar, however, it works well with another electric guitar I have, so I am keeping it.

                Comments about Alvarez FC1 Folk Arched Acoustic Guitar Hardshell Case:

                Needed to purchase a guitar case online for my new Alvarez AF60 folk sized guitar. Considered Gator and Guardian cases, but I was unable to determine online if either brand would fit exactly. So I went with this Alvarez brand case for their folk sized guitars, which cost slightly more. My AF60 fit the case perfectly, like the case was made for it. The quality is very good and consistent with cases in the $90 - $120 price range. It is not very heavy - a lightweight case. Attractive outside and the handle is placed in a position where the case sits at an angle that is easy to carry. Overall, very pleased with the purchase.
