Perfect for 12 strings!

By Carl Engel _

from Atlanta Georgia

I travel four days a week with one of my 12 string acoustics in tow. The airlines have destroyed several of the standard skb cases but have not been able to do more than cosmetic damage to this one. It is much heavier but you need that extra protection. The built in wheels and handle let you get around easily. Padding inside is first rate holding my guitars firmly while still allowing enough room to adjust to subtle differences in body shapes. Only part that does't seem extra sturdy is the compartment lid inside which is trivial and will not impact the safety of my guitars. Put this beast side by side with other cases and pick them up and yo will see and feel the substantial improvements. It costs a bunch more but it's a bargain when compared with the loss or damage to your favorite (and expensive) instrument. Only gripe I have is that our area Guitar Centers don't carry them in stock. Good news is that GS has easy shipping and a great return policy.

Almost Perfect

By Jim

from Cincinnati, OH

So I docked this case one star because one of the wheels fell off. I was able to put it back on tight and it's been fine ever since, but if it had come off in the plane or in transit I never would have seen it again. Other than that the case was perfect. I just took it to Belize and back from Cincinnati and it held up like a champ. Rolling through the airport was great since with a guitar in it the weight is just over 20lbs. One of my friends was watching while they were loading it on the plane and it fell off the conveyor belt up to to the plane and landed hard. When I got back to the states the case had 3 solid gashes on it but the guitar was in perfect shape! After that I almost wanted to put it back at 5 stars. I would recommend it for sure.

Road worthy case.......

By Lee Smedley

from Shoemakersville, PA

I've thought about buying this case for more than a year, but hesitated thinking it too expensive. I took the plunge and feel it is worth the bucks. I have a Taylor 710ce, and had NOT been happy with how my case fared getting lugged in and out of my station wagon and through airports for gigs. The stitching is seriously worn, and one of the clasps is broken. I'm not such a spring chicken any more and like the wheeled option. I definitely will feel safe using this for air travel, especially with the guarantee Things I especially like - the clasps open and close very smoothly, and do NOT stick out much when open. The indentation for the handle means that the chances of it getting banged up are reduced. The seal seems like a great one, especially for controlling humidity. The inside contains lots of of foam, an especially nice component for stuff that gets tossed around. However, the accessories case is not as nice or as large as my Taylor case and the internal "velvet" fabric seems a bit thinner. Still, these are minor inconveniences - hence my 4 star review.

Great Product

By Jamtheman

from Kansas City, MO

This is by far my favorite guitar case. I purchased this case so I could take my guitar to Florida. I checked my guitar and no one was careful with it at all. It arrived to Florida and back flawlessly. This is the best case out there. If you need something that will last, and that you won't have to worry about your instrument in then this is the case for you.
