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:

This case is an excellent value. It fits my Savannah six string Banjo perfectly.

As it is not marketed as a flight case, I rate it as a hard case and it gets five stars. I believe I could stand on it without doing any damage to the case or contents.

Received promptly, packaged and protected nicely. Musicians Friend does it again.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Hardshell Banjo Case:

      You really can't beat this case for the money. It's solid and does the job adequately. If you are a pro and play banjo for a living, you may want something that can take the kind of beating that the baggage handlers at airports give out on a daily basis, but, then again, you probably aren't reading reviews on Musician's Friend anyway.

      Slight Mod for Open Back Banjo

          Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Hardshell Banjo Case:

          I am a life lifelong guitarist, but brand new to the banjo. I got this to protect a Fender Rustler Open Back Banjo I just purchased (see that review too). It is a great case, sturdy and well built. Can't beat it for the price. The case is too deep for an open back banjo. I cut some foam from an old mattress pad to the shape of the well for the banjo head, and covered the foam with a black towel. I tucked the towel in behind the foam. It now looks great, fits the instrument perfectly and provides secure support for the banjo.

                  Very nice case, fits my Fender banjo like a glove. Good neck support. Excellent value. Exceeded my expectations. I gave it 4 stars as I'd reserve 5 stars for a super-swanky high end flight worthy case.
