I decided to get this matching case for my Alvarez guitar and I like the look of this case, easy to carry, padding is very nice, and the guitar fits for a nice tight, snug fit. I see some complaints as the outer shell will show dirt easily, dents, dings,ect.. especially if your gigging. These are all true statements but thats why I bought the case to protect that thing inside you know my guitar. Better the case than my axe. Very stylish and I would recommend it

I purchased the Alvarez DC1 Arched Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Hardshell Case for my 40 year old Alvarez Dreadnought. Nice looking case, but the fabric outer cover is like a magnet to dirt, scrapes and smudges. The case is very light in weight which makes me wonder how many layers of plywood were used and just how sturdy in will be to protect my guitar. The interior is nicely padded and my guitar fits securely. Finally, the case only has four latches. Other acoustic cases I have purchased have six. While the price was reasonable, I wonder if I will be buying another one soon.

Comments about Alvarez DC1 Arched Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Hardshell Case:

I bought this to hold my new practice guitar. It is just what I wanted and thought I was getting. It looks good because I like the tweek-like look and the sculpted, arched look as opposed to a flat, thin cardboard look. I has decent clasps that close with only a little pushing to get them aligned. The lining is decent and doesn't have any strong smells. It has all the features I like, like four clasps as opposed to three or five, Feet bumpers on the back and the side to protect the fabric. A good size storage bin and best of all, extra room at the headstock so I can leave my Snark tuner on the headstock when I case my guitar. Awesome. The case is not constructed with precision. The alignment is decent, but not precise. The liner fits the case, but is high on some areas and slightly low on others. Fortunately there are no gaps or unglued spots, so for an economy case I am pleased. Another perk for me, is the Alvarez badge on the outside that matches the guitar. I am pleased.

    Comments about Alvarez DC1 Arched Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Hardshell Case:

    Wanted an Alvarez case for my newly-purchased Alvarez guitar (took it home from Guitar Center in a generic one that I returned after receiving this one - didn't like the way the guitar fit in it, a bit too loose). I lucked out that this case had just gone on sale at Musician's Friend, it cost less than the generic one from GC. Anyway, the guitar fits in this case nice and snugly. Reasons for not rating it five stars: received it with a (very) small nick in the brown binding; I think the canvas(?) covering could be glued on a bit tighter in a few spots; the covering is a bit "irregular" (but after the first few times I take it out of the house, that will all blend right in with the road grime, I'm sure); and the accessory compartment cover inside seems a bit weakly attached and "flappy." But in the grand scheme of things, especially for the price, the fact that it's a genuine Alvarez case, the nice plush lining, the way the guitar fits in it; and it's really cool tan/brown/tweed vintage look, those are all pretty minor issues in my opinion.

      Comments about Alvarez DC1 Arched Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Hardshell Case:

      This is a very nice case. I purchased it specifically for my Alvarez acoustic guitar. The case I received had marks on the outer fabric and small bumps under the fabric,along what appeared to be cuts in the leather handle. Musicians Friend exchanged promptly Sith no hassle.The guitar seems to fit excessively tight in the case around the main body. A friend saw the case and decided to purchase one himself and his Alvarez guitar fit the same way. Both are dreadnought body guitars. Otherwise very happy with case that comes with locking clasps.

          Nice case, fits my AD60 very nicely. My only disappointment is that it arrived with 3 dark spots on it (similar to oil stains). I attempted to scrub them out with a wet cloth but after drying, the spots remain.

            Comments about Alvarez DC1 Arched Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Hardshell Case:

            The case fits the GD 50 year guitar well and has a decent liner; the stitching outside the case is concerning. Hopefully it holds up and doesn't continue to fray over time. Also, the latches are very nice in their ease of use and construction. Overall the case will work in protecting the guitar as long as the stitching holds up.

                This case is a perfect fit for your AD-60 12 string. It's throwback canvas look is spectacular something out of the 50's. Construction is very good. The only flaw in mine was the Alvarez emblem had a slight bend in it nothing worth returning though. I just like looking at this case, nothing but very cool. It is worth the extra few coins over a generic case.
