OVERVIEW

The right case for air travel with your dreadnought acoustic.

Inside, the dreadnought case has crushed velvet, luxury plush; an extended-reach, protective neck cradle; and a universal-fit, EPS protective-foam interior nest. When you're running for your next flight to your next gig, you'll appreciate the injection-molded, ergo-grip carrying handle with a built-in ID tag holder beneath it and the fact that once you stop to stand in line, this Gator guitar case stands up on its own on sturdy polyethylene feet.

Bought this case after contacting Gator directly for advice. I needed a case to fly my acoustic overseas as checked baggage. This case did not dissappoint in any way! The plastic is VERY durable and much thicker than my other ABS cases. The strong metal gasket held together well, as did the TSA latches. I flew to Thailand and back with this case, and my guitar, as well as the case, still looks amazing! It made it through 8 different flights, all as checked baggage unscathed. The TSA agents had no problems unlocking it, as it was checked at several different airports along the way.

This case is absolutely outstanding! Would buy this for any guitar! Thanks Gator!
Great weight (not too heavy), nice TSA latches, beautiful interior, red handle makes it easy to spot, and the molded feet are very stable! Just wish it had one more latch.
VERY solid plastic. Much more rugged than my previous ABS cases. NICE interior materials, and the fit and finish of the gasket/lid are first rate. Latches are very solid, and held up well to the rigors of the airline baggage handlers. Handle is very stable and easy to spot due to the red inset.
There is not a better case out there for the money, IMO. Hands down a better case than their rival's case, which costs more money.

Be Careful on Sizing

I ordered a case that was supposed to be for DN's. However neither my Gibson AJ or my Taylor 510 would fit. Returned item.

            Got my acoustic over to Europe safe and sound. That was the criteria. It has enough storage for a strap, tuner, slid, capo and extra set of strings. It is strong, yet not much heavier than my Martin case. Great price.

              Comments about Gator ATA Molded Acoustic Dreadnought Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

              I have flown with this case all over the world, mainly from the US to Asia and Europe, and ALWAYS as checked baggage. I have lost count of how many flights this thing has been on, and it still looks nearly new. Only signs of use are a few scuffs, inspection/airport stickers, and one of the little "feet" on the back came off. Gator said they would fix/replace it if I would ship it back. I have not done so, as it's really not a major problem.

              My guitars all fit in this case, and the protection is very good. Not only has it been on flights, but it has been in loaded trailers, been in harsh environments/rain, and has protected the guitar amazingly well. It is a bit on the heavy side, but hey... it has to be, and that's fine by me. This case has proven it's worth over and over. It will be with me for a long time to come!

                This travel case is solid! It is on the big side. And most flights if you ask if you are able to take it on board. Are usually ok with it as a carry on. However on smaller planes they will ask you to check it at the gate. Then somone will bring it back up to you from the bottom of the plane. The only thing I wish is that it was a little lighter and had more locks on the system. But over all for the price very happy with the product!

                  I needed to travel for a gig via air. Definitely something new for me. I picked this up for the trip, instead of chancing a standard ABS case. It took a few lumps, as indicated by the marks on the case, but it stood up. I don't know that it would stand up to daily use, like a wooden one with metal corners, but for the occasional flyer, it would work great. Make sure you check your dims, though before you buy! I had to switch guitars.

                    Comments about Gator ATA Molded Acoustic Dreadnought Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

                    I have a Martin D1 that I have owned for nine years. I have wanted a good hard shell case for a long time but the prices were a little high for our budget. But at this price and with the reviews I couldn't pass. The case that came with my D1 was getting pretty beat up and though it was a good solid case it didn't compare with this one.

                    The fit is snug but that is good. It is well balanced and easy to carry. The lining is soft and plush providing nice protection for the guitar. The latches are easy to manage.

                    My only complaint is the storage compartment is not deep enough so I barely have room for my strap, tuner and two capos. However that small sacrifice is worth it.

                    I initially ordered the wrong case (Classical) by mistake and the customer service rep was very understanding and courteous, getting the order canceled for me and ordering the correct one. Five stars to the customer service as well!

                    All in all I am very happy with this case.
