      I have not used the case for traveling yet I'll
      know end of May. The latches are to easy to trigger and could open during handling.

        Comments about Gator ATA Molded Classical Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

        Had to return it because it didn't fit. Most classical guitar cases fit a square neck dobro... Not this one. Seemed like a very well constructed case for the money though.

        Comments about Gator ATA Molded Classical Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

        This is a good quality case for the money. The latches seem secure. I'm not sure I would trust my guitar to the vagaries of airline baggage handlers in this case, but in this price range, it seems to provide a good level of protection and better than most. To get one that will do better, will cost far far more.

        As for having a TSA compliant lock, that's nice, but the only real value of a lock on a guitar case is to prevent the latch from inadvertently coming open.

            Comments about Gator ATA Molded Classical Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

            Case has tough exterior, fits my classical acoustic-electric Ibanez very snug (a good thing) and is not bulky, at all - same size as a plywood case. Recommended.

            My guitar has traveled inside this case 4 times on long flights so far. It was gate-checked every time, but once I had to pick it up at the carousel with all the checked bags. The case ended up with a few scratches on the metal parts, the middle latch was open (I forgot to lock it), but the guitar was protected.

            Two things to watch out for:
            1 - lock the middle latch when going on a flight so it doesn't open by accident.
            2 - the top and bottom hinges are small and strong, but kind of exposed. Just be careful setting the case down on concrete and hard surfaces

                This is about the best case I've found in this price range. It is nice and stiff, provides good protection, and is reasonably light weight. The lid for the storage compartment could be better, but is functional and will hold strings, tuner and related gear.

                  The posted specs do not reflect actual. All interior dimensions were at least 1/2 inch shorter than advertized. After waiting over a week to receive it, had to end up sending it back.

                  This is one SOLID case...

                  By voxfan

                  from Austin, TX

                  Comments about Gator ATA Molded Classical Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

                  I bought this case because I needed to check it as luggage on an overseas flight. I was a bit skeptical when I first looked into them. figured it was just a dressed up standard hardshell case. I can tell you for certain that this is no standard case. Plastic is thicker, valance is thicker/stronger, latches are tough, good handle. LOVE the built in luggage tag. Nice fit for my acoustic, good padding.
                  Good, solid latches, hinges, and valance that is quite strong and larger than a standard case. The TSA locks are a nice feature, as well. The extended "feet" on the bottom of the guitar are nice, as it will stand on it's end in a very stable manner.
                  Gator really builds solid cases. Opens and closes very well. Just feels solid without being overly bulky. LOVE the interior material. Padding is dence and solid. Again, obviously higher quality than your typical hardshell case.
                  Compared to similar cases by the competition, you cannot beat the price!
