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.

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

    Love this guitar case, it fits my guitar perfectly. The old hardshell case I had for it was pretty lightweight, so in comparison it does seem pretty heavy, but this is my first 'newer' case I've ever owned, and that may just be normal.

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

      It fits perfectly my Ibanez Artcore AF75 Red-sunburst. I'm a happy customer because I bought the case for that exact reason. I'm the type of person who does not like to take the straps off the guitar, and this case allows me to continue doing exactly that. The compartment is big enough to add some accessories, but most importantly I feel that the guitar is protected. the latch for the lock is not the nicest one of all my guitar cases -- look closely in the picture -- you would need a little pad-lock, similar to the ones you use for your luggage. No big deal, I just wanted to have a case to avoid my guitar become a dust bunny heaven. If you're an AF Series Artcore owner, this is a must-have.

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

      This may be the only case that will fit an Ibanez Artcore AF 75 or 85, due to the "fat lower bout" on these guitars. And it fits these guitars very tightly and secures and protects them well.

            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.
