    At first glance I thought the case seemed a bit bulky for such a compact guitar as the AF75, but after seeing how the instrument fits I can see why. The combination of the neck angle and the floating bridge both have to be taken into account. Since the case has a flat rather than arched top, it has to be a bit deeper. Like a violin case this one includes a suspension pad at the base of the neck where it joins the body. This prevents the full back of the guitar from resting against the back of the case and thus protecting it from an impact. While I would not say it is light weight, it is still easy enough to carry around unlike the case that came with my Taylor 510 which is heavy and awkward. Finally, the large simple latches with the option of adding a pad lock, the roomy storage compartment and general good fit all add up to a nice case. A hint, if the glue smell from the new case bothers you like it did me, leave it open for a few days on the back porch and it will air out nicely.

    I bought this case for my Artcore, mainly because I could not find another case that would fit. For the price, I expected a high quality case. I did not get high quality. I have purchased Musician's Gear cases (for half the price) that had better quality control than this one. Where the tolex meets up is very sloppy, and already has some fraying. The case interior lining is also coming away from the sides in two places, and this is all before I ever put my guitar in it. If you can find another case for less money, do it.

        Priced right, delivered promtly.
        Mine had a slight seam issue that I called MF about and they had it "taken care of" that day!
        Musicians Friend is great to deal with, and has never left me hanging.

              Comments about Ibanez AF100C Artcore Hardshell Case for AF Series Guitars:

              This case arrived in a very timely manner and appears to be an overall decent case...however...there is an extremely strong odor coming from the inside...I figure it might be the glue that binds the thing together, but whatever it is, it is strong enough to cause my guitar to smell the same way for an hour or two after I pull it out of the case. I've played guitar for over 30 years, have owned many electric and acoustic guitars with cases, and have never experienced anything like this. Like I said, the case seems sturdy enough so I'll keep it. Hopefully the smell will disappear over time.

              Better quality than competitive brand I purchased several years ago.
              Standard
              Lining and latches are good and my new AF55 fits perfectly. Nice and snug.

              Comments about Ibanez AF100C Artcore Hardshell Case for AF Series Guitars:

              I bought this case used from my local music store. It's a good case for the price. I use it to put my Hofner club guitar in. It has a storage compartment and a nice interior. Overall I'm impressed with it.

              Comments about Ibanez AF100C Artcore Hardshell Case for AF Series Guitars:

              I like this case very much. My guitar fits inside very nicely, very tightly, with no wiggle room, but plenty of space for accessories. I got it in the mail this morning, so I haven't had a chance to evaluate it's durability yet. It might not hold up cosmetically, but I'm certain it'll do it's job for a long time to come.

              Artcore case fills the bill

              By Spearce

              from South Gerogia

              Comments about Ibanez AF100C Artcore Hardshell Case for AF Series Guitars:

              My artcore case is exactly what I needed for my AF85. It may not be bullet proof carbon fiber with titanium latches and hinges but it provides more than adequate protection for my guitar. The price was reasonable and considering it was the ONLY one I could find it is perfect for my needs. I'm very pleased with the plush interior and sturdy exterior.
