Great Case

By Tom Tropp

from Lake Forest, Illinois

I travel every week and wanted to bring my Manuel Rodriguez Model E along with me on the plane. This case is perfect because it is light and thin but provides excellent protection against luggage handling machinery. The TSA approved locks are also helpful.

Comment on this review



By Michael Coleman

from Arlington, Tx.

This the worst buy I have ever made from guitar center. When I received my case It had a major ding on the seal on the top of the case and the case would not stay open. The strap inside the case that determines how far it will open was too short. Was afraid the lid would slam on my hands or guitar as I was either putting my guitar in or removing the guitar from the case. Took the case back to guitar center to attempt an exchange. the three guitar cases that were in stock at the local guitar center had worse seals than mine. One of which was right out of the box and you could slip a peice of paper threw the bottom seal of the case. All of the cases at the local guitar centerhad the same issue with not staying open. The Guitar center rep told me that it is a case and that it's job was to protect the guitar and although it wouldn't stay open it still did its job. I needed a guitar case really bad and I needed one that would fit my thin guitar, I decided just to make do. I didn't want to have to hold the guitar case open with my head while I pull my guitar out of the case and or access the storage compartment. I cut the strap on the inside of the guitar case to fix my immediate need and replaced the strap later with something longer later. Do not waste your money on this.

Too heavy and too tight

By Lorena Sikorski

from Cypress Ca

I bought this case for my Yamaha thin line acoustic/electric APX 500II. The guitar fit in the case very snugly. There wasn't enough extra room for the strap to stay on. The case is made very well, but it is also very heavy to carry. I am returning it for the soft case. This is a good case if you take it on air planes. But if you don't, it's extra protection features make it very inconvenient for everyday use.

You can't go wrong with this case.


from Pittsburgh, PA

I was amazed at how light and sturdy this case is. I also bought one for my main electric. I've been a studio and session player for more years than I care to remember and used to travel with my guitars in the old Anvil cases. They weigh a ton and I travel extensively. That got old really fast. Since my initial purchase I've had the opportunity to use them on three different occasions, (California, Washington State and Arizona) and they've proven their stuff. Don't be fooled by their light weight. The construction is great and you'll have piece of mind when you travel. I even use them locally because they're lighter and better built than my standard cases.

Wonderful Case, Great SKB Service

By Joe

from Stratham, NH

I just bought this case to fit my Ibanez AES20E, and it fits just perfectly. It really was exactly what I was looking for. The only thing I wanted was a strap, but that was really secondary. Now that I have it in my hands, I'm plenty happy with it. What's more, as soon as I pulled it out of the box from Guitarcenter, I noticed the security keys were missing. So I called up SKB, and they were so nice ... they mailed out a new set of keys the very next day. Wow, you don't get that kind of quality customer service everywhere. So, I'm impressed not only by the product but by the company that stands behind it. Way to go SKB!

Excellent Case

By Desert Rose

from Coweta, Oklahoma

I bought this for my 15 year old daughter who travels by plane occasionally. We wanted an upgrade so that she could start taking her accoustice with her when travelling. She is VERY pleased with the case. Her Dean fits perfectly in it as if the case were custom made for it. The locks are very user friendly and the case is quite light. The green was an added plus since this is her favorite color!

Great Case!

By Ivan

from Las Vegas

The case is great for classical guitars. I thought it was going to be heavy, however to my surprise it is very light but strong enough to protect your precious guitar. I definitely recommend this case! It's worth the value. It comes with a set of keys for whenever you want to travel and lock it. The lock is also TSA compatible, which means you can lock your case and don't have to worry if for any reason they have to open your case in the airports. They have universal keys to open these type of locks. Again I loved the case, it will be with me for many years to come.
