"NOT JUST FOR LES PAULS"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have 17 electric guitars , many with their original cases and I have to say when it comes to protecting guitars worth a few thousand dollars SKB Has what you need and I feel very confident in their craft .
Sound
Very quiet when opening and closing .
Features
I very much like the 5 trigger latches , the arched lid , the extruded aluminum closure and the very plush interior combined with the hard shell case makes this on a winner .
Ease of Use
especially the latches .
Quality
I'm proud to say this one was made in the USA and the quality is state of the art in instrument protection .
Value
This case would sell like hot cakes at $99.00 but I gave the extra 20 knowing SKBs reputation .
Manufacturer Support
I give the the bebefit of the doubt , as I have many SKS cases , many of which are protecting my pro sound equiptment and they all are holding up very well and I have never had to call SKB regarding any problems over the last 8 years .
The Wow Factor
I have two of these case which I bought separately over time to protect a PRS singlecut and an 1977 Ibanez Artist AR-300 . After seeing the first one and knowing the Ibanez would fit in one , well it was a no brainer . I wanted another .
