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:

            I have purchased cases for much more money that were flimsy and basically worthless. This case is none of those. It is sturdy, the latches are solid, and it fits my Fender Rustler 6 string like a glove! The interior is very plush, so I won't worry about the finish getting scratched. I wouldn't try and fly with this case but, for every day use, it protects my banjo perfectly.

              Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Hardshell Banjo Case:

              for the price, this is an awesome case. fits my washburn b9 perfectly. I did add a bit of padding in the upper section for more neck support. I wouldn't trust it if I ever had to fly with it, baggage handlers may find a way to damage it, but not a concern for me, since I'm not a gigging musician. perfect for normal use, just playing with friends, and traveling around town. just what I was looking for.

                    I am a Banjo builder with 39 years of experience. This case was the best buy I have ever found on this case and free shipping was amazing. Shipping on cases these days is very expensive for a small time builder. Great buy! I will buy many!

                        A pretty decent case I'd say.

                        It's on the light side as far as ply thickness, but should do the job of protecting your banjo.

                        The workmanship seems good and the price is right, so I can find nothing not to like.

                        If you need something better than a gig bag and don't want to spend too much, this case is the way to go.

                          I've purchased other guitar cases which were more than twice as expensive. This case is as good, and in some cases better, than my others. This is my first banjo case and I feel confident it will provide good protection.
