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:

          Fits my Alvarez deluxe banjo with 14" resonator ! My banjo is a little larger than most so a case with 13.75" internal width won't work. It also has a larger headstock so it needs a good 39" long (internal) case as well. Most hard cases don't fit but this one does. It's also very cheap for the quality. Latches are gold tone so is the accent stitching, they really didn't have to go that far at this price point but the quality is there. Half the price of the next case up, and that one would not fit my banjo. 70's Alvarez banjos are smaller and would have fit but these later ones are larger and need a full 14" width.

              I was not expecting the quality level I received with this case, (due to extremely low price), but as ALWAYS M.F. proves yet once again to be a "Friend Indeed"!! Thanx folks, Y'all's the "Bees' Knees"!!!

                            Probably great for a banjo of the proper size, but bought to use as it was recommended as an alternative to the hard to find bouzouki case. Biggest issue is that the dimensions were not as advertised. I had to relocate the accessory pocket so that it was out of the way of the bouzouki's neck heel. No real biggie, but it need to be done if it was to fit at all. Only other issue I found was as the center of gravity is different between the banjo and bouzouki, I need to carry the case backwards for the balance to improve and not get a tired arm/wrist quickly. Probably a great case for the intended use of a banjo.
