I got this case for the resophonic guitar I bought my son for Christmas. The guitar came in the case and I have to say that it fits it like a glove. It is very tight and the guitar does not rattle around in it like some cases that I have had. Although I would call this a hardshell case, it is maybe not as heavy as some I have had. Still, it is much better than a lot of cases I have had over the years (does anyone remember those old chipboard cases from the 70's? ugh!)and I expect my son to get many years of use out of it.

I wasn't sure which case to get for my new "Hound Dog Acoustic Deluxe Square Neck Dobro Guitar", so the sales representative recommended "Musicians Gear Deluxe Archtop Hardshell Squareneck Guitar Case". When it arrived, the Dobro did not fit well in the case. Also, it was kind of flimsy. I thought I could deal with these because it was a rather inexpensive case. However, within the first week, one of the latches fell off. It appears to simply be a poorly made case. I'm hoping to find a case that was actually made for the instrument I bought, but I have not been able to find one.

Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Archtop Hardshell Squareneck Guitar Case:

I needed a light duty case for my Ovation. I truly didn't expect a lot when I ordered this case. But I must say that I'm more than pleased.It will definately met my 'off to the campfire' requirements. If I gigged professionally, I'd buy a hardshell. But this case will do just fine.If fact I'm going to order another of the same brand for my Washburn 12 string!

protects the dobro

By DenB

Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Archtop Hardshell Squareneck Guitar Case:

I keep my roundneck houndog inthe case, fits great, and I'm not worried about it. The only beef I have with the case is the cheap handle. For the price, it was a good value to me and I'd buy another one. I'm not slinging around gear and can be careful with it.
It's a basic case, padded, with a storage compartment...reason why I gave it a 7...the handle fasteners look like they could break at any minute.
the case itself is what I needed...padded, fits my Houndog fine, latches are fine, again the handle hardware looks cheap. I don't use my dobro much, so I just needed to keep it protected. I wouldn't expect this case to take much abuse, nor do I expect the handle to hold up for a gigging musician. I am careful with it because I want it to last a while.
For me, the value was above average. Again, I rarely take my dobro out of the house, so an inexpensive case worked for me. Or if you are careful with your gear, this is a fine case for the money.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Archtop Hardshell Squareneck Guitar Case:

    I;ve had a Regal resonator guitar that I have been lugging around in a dreadnought size guitar case for years because I have been unable to find a decent match for until now. I actually stumbled on this looking for a case for a different guitar. I have to say that I am more than pleased with it not only for fit but for overall construction quality at the price point. First off, the Regal resonator fits very well. It;s actually a little snug which I actually prefer. Although I would want to fly with it. it provides adequated protection and feels quite sturdy. I'm not overwhelmed by the storage box as it's a little small and seems fragile, it's no deal breaker. Remember that this is an economy model and that usually means there will be some minor flaws

    Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Archtop Hardshell Squareneck Guitar Case:

    The heal of the neck of my Gold Tone PBS did not quite match the shape of the foam neck support attached to the accessory compartment. The neck didn't seat fully so the case couldn't be closed. I didn't want to return the case (liked it for my purposes), so I removed the screws to the neck support end of the compartment and slipped it out. I peeled the covering off the area of the foam that needed shaping and shaved a curve in it with an exacto knife to match the curve of the heal. I reapplied the covering and screwed it back into the case. It was easy to do. Now the PBS fits great and I'm happy with the case.

          Not a flight case but a good medium plus duty case for protecting a guitar in a van, etc. Finish looks great cleans easily. Very good neck fit. Body cavity a bit large for a Gretsch 9230 but OK. I would buy this again.

            I bought this for a Gretsch 9230 and the case is a bit large for the Gretsch body but I'd rather add some padding than have it too tight. Neck fit is perfect.
            2008 comments on weak handle appear to have been addressed by the manufacturer. I'm very tempted replace my dreadnought's case with one from this company.

              I have 3 of these for resonator guitars. I have no problems with any of them. This however is not a flight case, but should provide good protection for normal use.
              These are a solid case for local use or light road use.
              This is a quality case for the price. The latches latch. The interior is plush , and the exterior will stand some use but not abuse.
              This is a good price for what you get.

                        Needed a case for a roundneck resonator (Regal RD-40), and didn't want to spend a lot. The classical size might have worked, but I went with this case. There is some room for movement, and the square neck shaped cavity allows the roundneck a slight bit of play, but not enough to be a problem. All in all, for the price, these cases are great. Definitely not a flight or touring case, but for car travel and protection at home in the guitar harem, I couldn't be happier. I have several cases of this brand, and I always get them quickly and well packed, and shipped free!
