I bought this case during a holiday sale, and I feel I got an excellent deal. I was buying this for an Irish bouzouki, as they usually fit fine in a 5-string banjo case. The only issue that worried me was the length from the strap button to the top of the neck joint, which is longer on a bouzouki than a round banjo head. Fortunately, it fit perfectly, but with no room to spare (15.5" in case anyone else is buying it for the same reason).

As others have noted, this case will require some additional padding in the body area because the neck rest creates a fulcrum and the instrument flops around in the case until the lid is closed. I found some black material similar to the type used in the case, and covered a piece of 1" foam with it, and now the instrument fits snugly without flopping around.

Overall, this is a nice, solid case that's well-constructed for carrying to the occasional gig, or safely storing the instrument. I wouldn't recommend it for a hard-working touring professional, or for extended travel, but for nearly all other uses, it's well worth it.

This case would be ideal for a beginner class or other lightweight model banjo. The only neck support that this case offers is at the base of the neck just above the heal. If this case is dropped with a heavier banjo inside of it, the neck could break. The exterior strength, as previously mentioned, isn't all that great. It gives under moderate pressure. So if something we dropped onto the case, anything inside of it is going to feel the hit as well. The hardware seems to be OK. The locks secure the lid down firmly. Again, this case would be good for a lightweight banjo or cheaper model. It would even go well for someone who is going to be using this case for storage. The price is right, but just understand that the quality is affected somewhat when not spending as much money on other brands.
The features on this banjo case are pretty much standard on all banjo cases.
The exterior strength and protection is OK. It's nothing fantastic, but will hold up to light/moderate use.
The price is amazingly low. However, with "value" being more about what product your getting for the money spent, it's hard to rate this in the top of it's class. It's overall strength isn't great. The interior padding is someone hard and not forgiving.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Hardshell Banjo Case:

      Having multiple banjos, keeping them all in a case is an expensive undertaking. This hard-shell case from Musician's Friend was a very affordable, decent quality solution. This is not a flimsy banjo case.

      I was very pleased with both the quality of the product and the exceptional level of service from Mucisian's Friend.

          Great case for the money but should have better neck protection. There should be another neck support closer to the head.

              Case is great, however it is of little use to me since the item I ordered was in stock when I ordered it and now suddenly it is on back order until sometime next year when this was a Christmas gift this year. Sure you offered me another one but at a much higher price. If I had wanted to pay more I would have ordered the higher priced one to begin with. Unsatisfied with your business practices. Sadly a musician recommended me to you, not a good way to gain more business.

              Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Hardshell Banjo Case:

              I purchased two of these cases for safe storage of banjos when they were not being used. They are excellent for that use but I would not use them for transport. The interior has plenty of storage room. However, the two cases are not the same size and the exterior hardware parts are not attached in the same positions. One case leans to one side when standing it upright and one case is slightly shorter. I had to add a spacer under the resonators so the necks would be parallel to the lid to take the stress off the neck. Overall I am satisfied with the cases because they serve the purpose for which they were purchased and the sale price was reasonable for the quality.

                Perfectly sized & balanced for a Mastertone resonator banjo. Not quite as heavy but very similar to my more expensive cases that cost 3-4 times as much. Good fit & finish to all components.

                  Does not fit a gretsch dixie deluxe banjo which I would think is a standard 5 string banjo. I needed to build up the body part of the case so that all the pressure would not be on the neck. For the price its not worth the cost of shipping back.

                    I talked with Musician's Friend consultants before buying this to ensure it would fit the Banjo I also bought from them. After about 15 minutes of checking, I would told it would fit great. This case is WAY too big and offers no neck support. I had purchased Gretsch Guitars G9451 Dixie Deluxe 5-String Banjo and there is about 3 or 4 inches all around the banjo body so the banjo slides around inside the case when just lifting it. The neck support is in the wrong spot as well. I would not carry the banjo outside my house in this case. If I could find a manufacture case for this banjo, I would return this case.
