    I purchased this Case and received it 3 days after purchase- GREAT. I had never seen a case with this color and style, which gave it a new look to my liking. The case is light enough to carry, the handle is soft and it tilts the case perfectly to keep it from hitting off your legs. Some other reviews say the case is too thin, it is very sturdy. It is obviously plywood, but there has to be some kind of strong plastic to it also. Other reviews say that the "latches don't match up". This is an incorrect statement. The Lid positions onto the body of the case perfectly. With the guitar inside it is necessary to give the body a little push in, or the lid a little pull out to make the fit snug, which just shows it is healthy. Then the latches latch smoothly, and securely. The interior of the case is soft/heavily padded with a fake fur-carpet material. It is black, also stylish. The case is like none other I have owned, and it tops them all. Get it, it is worth 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 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

        Comments about Alvarez DC1 Arched Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Hardshell Case:

        I was looking for something fairly inexpensive for my Alvarez AD30 CE. This fit the bill nicely. I wouldn't go on the road with it but it does protect my guitar nicely back and forth to local gigs.

            I've owned my Yairi Alvarez D50 for well over 20 years, transporting it when necessary in a variety of plain-Jane cases and gig bags. When I saw this "Branded" case on line, it looked great. Imagine my delight when it arrived and looked even better in person. This is not an expensive case, but for the money, it offers great looks, a great fit for my dread, and reasonable protection for car trips. It's perfect for my needs.

                Comments about Alvarez DC1 Arched Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Hardshell Case:

                So there was some confusion over this case, so I called Alvarez, and confirmed that we shouldn't be confused by the DC-1 model number. This is simply a dreadnought case, and it is beautiful. If you're looking to carry your guitar in style, then you have to look at this case. The interior padding is luxurious, and although the case itself is not quite as sturdy as some cases that I have purchased, this is a case that I would baby. It just looks too good to throw around.

                This is a case that will turn heads when you carry your guitar in, and if treated as such, it will serve you and your guitar very well.

                  Way more padding than a TKL case I have. Construction doesn't seem to be the most durable for long lasting wear, but seriously, if you are going to buy a case in this color you are probably not going to be tossing it into a truck every weekend. This is an excellent case for general storage and light transport. I wouldn't use it as a steady gig case or put it on a plane if I could help it. It really does cuddle the guitar well tough and it just looks great.

                        Sent it back. Sales people were great. Returned it and they sent me a silver creek.
                        Much better case, and about the same money.
                        It looks good in pictures, I should have known better. Awful Construction. Case was crushed on the back. Not from shipping,Tolex was perfectly smooth.I just happened to touch the back and my hand went thru to the padding. LOL......
                        Dings and dents all over. Lid did not close properly,
                        Much better case out there, Cases are no longer cheap, you get what you pay for. Lesson Learned.
                        Amazingly Bad
