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:

      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.

                      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.
