He got some of the popular brands of guitar cases for some of his guitars for almost 2 years and it has held up very well. I was able to carry it once and it is very convenient and safe to use. The only thing you have to be careful about is the metal edge while you are placing the guitar in the case- it is not padded at all for the model that he had. So the risk scratching the guitar was there. That’s why he switched to SKB Cases which are just perfect for his guitars. His instruments are precious and he’s now content that they have the best case he can afford.
