Overview

The Gator ATA acoustic dreadnought guitar case has an outer shell made of nearly indestructible military-grade polyethylene. The case's TSA-approved, impact-resistant, locking latches are ideal for air travel. Black, powder-coated hardware and a sealing valance are other enhancements added to the ATA guitar case.

Inside, the dreadnought case has crushed velvet, luxury plush; an extended-reach, protective neck cradle; and a universal-fit, EPS protective-foam interior nest. When you're running for your next flight to your next gig, you'll appreciate the injection-molded, ergo-grip carrying handle with a built-in ID tag holder beneath it and the fact that once you stop to stand in line, this Gator guitar case stands up on its own on sturdy polyethylene feet. Don't travel by air without it!

    Comments about Gator ATA Molded Acoustic Dreadnought Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

    Here's the deal. I have purchased and destroyed a lot of guitar cases. My experience has been that they all eventually fail. Handles, clasps, hinges, and corners. All. Fail. To be fair, this case fits my vintage Alvarez 5064 (dreadnought with cutaway) very well on the sides. It doesn't fit so well on the top. For instance, if I set the cased guitar down quickly I can hear the strings ring a little. Also, if I press on the top a bit it has a little too much give in my opinion. I feel like the bridge could get pressed down quite a lot if something were stacked on top of it. Not too confidence inspiring.

    I have no idea how well the clasps will hold up, so I am reserving judgement on this component.

    The thing is, this is not the cheapest case out there. It sure looks nice and gets high marks from other reviewers. It is by no means junk, but I was hoping for a little more.

      High Flying Value

      By Randal Davis

      from Virginia

      Comments about Gator ATA Molded Acoustic Dreadnought Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

      Purchased this last month for my Epiphone DR 500 to make a roundtrip flight from east coast to west coast. Well made case for the money and fits my guitar very nicely. Written interior Specs for the case were well covered on the manufacturers site, so I was fairly certain the fit would not be an issue. 6000 miles and no problems!

      Fits Epiphone DR500 Perfectly!

      By Randal Davis

      Comments about Gator ATA Molded Acoustic Dreadnought Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

      Very well made case, fits my instrument very nicely. Will get a coast to coast flight test in the next few months. Good cushioning in the interior and 3 solid latches on the exterior. Excellent heavy duty webbed hinge restraint between the case and lid. My guitar fell wthin the published dimensions and the case fits like a glove.

      Nice case but bad size!

      By Roger Sherrin

      from Wylie, TX

      Comments about Gator ATA Molded Acoustic Dreadnought Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

      I recently purchased a 1960 Gibson J45 and it only came with a soft gig bag. I have been gigging ever since I got the J45 and worrying about carrying such a rare gutar around. In addition, I will be returning to Japan shortly and needed a TSA type case for the flight, so we ordered this case delivered to my house. The case came quicky and looked great. It was a bit heavy, but nice design and cool TSA locks. But neither my J45 dreadnought, nor my Guild dreadnought could squeeze inside this case. I suspect they send the next smaller size, although the invoice showed specifically dreadnought. Mislabeled, or mishandled? I don't know. I took it back to the Plano GTC and they exchanged it with a Roadrunner case. It is extrememly lighter, but does not have the ATA locks. Still which I had a light case like the Road Runner, but with cool style and TSA locks like the Gator.

      Comments about Gator ATA Molded Acoustic Dreadnought Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

      I bought this case for my son who will not go anywhere without (one of) his guitar(s)and trashes his guitar cases. He travels with it as well as gigs, etc. He has been able to charm the airline check in people to let him take it on the plane as a carry on where they will store it up front for him, but I'm sure that won't always work and NO ONE wants to check a guitar as baggage. The TSA latches are a huge perk. He loves it.

      I bought this case a week ago for my hummingbird and when i got the case i tried to put it in. The body fits but the neck on my hummingbird is to long for the case.

      10,000 air miles and all is well!

      By Brian

      from San Antonio, Texas

      Comments about Gator ATA Molded Acoustic Dreadnought Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

      We purchased two gator cases for our trip to South America this summer. We needed to take two acoustic guitars, in the mid to upper range in price, so we really needed high quality cases. I looked locally in out Guitar Center store and did not find anything that I felt would withstand the rigors of air travel. I asked the salesperson about Gator cases and he informed me they were available online. A friend had recommended Gators, so I went ahead and purchased them blindly. Both guitars fit perfectly in the case, with essentially no wiggle room. We flew roughly 10,000 miles during this trip, checking the guitars as baggage, and the guitars and cases survived with no issues. I would highly recommend these cases for anyone that needs to ship guitars as baggage.
