I have to disagree with the two negative reviews which kept me from buying
until Stupid Deals offered it for half price.

I suspected a bit of review petulance (the photos looked pretty good to me)
and I'm happy to report on a quality case.

First of all, It looks awesome! Tweed rules! Plus there are Plether bindings
on the top and bottom edges that help define lines of its coolness.
When opened, the plush red lining really rocks.

The hardware is fine and three of the upper cover latches
actually have a tang inside the loop.
This little tang fits into a hole in the lower body latch .
This makes it very secure for three of the latches.
Another heavier duty latch has a locking mechanism (keys are included).
I don't find the criticism of the "flimsy latches" valid.
The case that this replaces has the same latches minus the tangs
and they've held up just fine for thirty years.
With proper care, this will serve you well.

The case is light but sturdy and the arched lid aids in its strength.

I'm using it for a Yamaha jumbo and the fit could not be more perfect.
The measurements given in the specs are accurate and if you're concerned about
loose fit, measure your guitar, for cryin' out loud. :)

There are three brass casters to protect the fabric on the flat bottom and
the four casters on the lower end allow it to stand vertically (on the long end).
Casters on the edge serve it when it's standing on the horizontal.

Empty, I thought the case was unbalanced when I picked it up by the
excellent, comfortable, padded, sturdy handle.

When I cased the guitar, the balance was just fine.

There were some some very minor tweed wrinkles on the arched top
but, for me, they're forgivable since the arced top
won't lend itself to easy smoothing when that heavy duty tweed is glued on.

It didn't have a fender logo... really? Get a sticker then...
The pictures don't show one and you know what?
I'm fine with that.

For the money: A great cool case even at full price

There are some "Musician's Gear" cases that are exactly like these, but are priced at half what this one cost. Here's a tip: it's the same thing! This is *not* worth the price. It's barely worth half the price. It's flimsy, the latches and hinges are rickety, fly-weight stuff that won't last a year. I hate to give such a negative review, but this is a shockingly cheap-o case they're selling for this price. Get a Gator case - same or a bit more, but you get a decent product.

It's worth noting that Fender's name is nowhere on this case. I don't blame them - there's NO name on this thing. Save your money - really.

          • regular in town gigging.

          Comments about Fender Jumbo Acoustic Arch Top Guitar Case:

          I have an Alverez ABT60 Baritone acoustic 6 string. The bottom bout width is 17". Where in the world can you find a case that will fit that size? It's a Super Jumbo, not a regular one. So MF has the Stupid Deal of the Day which I check every day. Low and behold, they have a jumbo case & included the measurements. Thank you MF! The case measures out to fit the baritone exactly. I really didn't care if it was a road worthy case, I just needed something / anything for it to go into. Even a dreadnaught gig bag was too small.
          The case arrived in a black thin fabric like sleeve. Since the tweed is yellow, in shipment there were some black scuffs on the top which wouldn't come out with any kind of cleaning. I got it at 1/2 price so I'm not going to worry about the big black marks. The insides are that fuzzy red material. Fit my baritone perfectly. The latches are its weak spot. They're definitely substandard quality compared to TKL case latches.
          For my use, I just needed something to fit my overlarge baritone. I got the hard case at half price & was very happy. I think luck had more to do with it. The case at full price isn't quite the value it should be. A TKL or other brand around that same price will yield better latches & maybe thicker construction.

            I have an old Gretsch that I couldn't find a reasonably priced case that would actually fit. This case showed up as a stupid deal of the day and I couldn't pass it up. My guitar fits perfectly, and the case is beautiful.

                  I am more of a smalltime collector of guitars, I don't have a special place to keep my instruments, so at the least I need hard shell cases to store them in. This works great for that.

                          This case is stunning. Real Fender product, classic tweed with leather trim, red plush interior ; it's gorgeous! Now I just need a guitar big enough to fit it. Bought it on SDOTD, so the price was great but it swallowed my jazz box whole. Nobody's fault but mine. Maybe I can find a thin gig bag and put em both in it. When they said "jumbo", they were serious.

                                Try to get this on sale, because is a very good case, but I am not sure one should spend the usual price when the generic ones MF sells are simular and a lot less.
