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:

    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.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Hardshell Banjo Case:

      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.

      Fits Gold Tone 6-string Banjitar

          Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Hardshell Banjo Case:

          If you are looking for a hard-shell case for a 6-string banjo look no further. Bought this for a Gold Tone 6-string Banjitar. The banjitar fits perfectly. No adjustments or special fitting necessary. Nice black "fur" lining and well padded interior. Typical pocket in middle by neck support for picks, strap, tuner, etc. Metal latches lock securely. Black tolex covering with stiched accents looks nice. Really a super case for the price. If you are looking for something to take on an airline, this may not be it. But for general transport to local gigs, home storage in the closet, etc. you can't beat it for the price.

              Asuper Value in a hard shell case provides excelent protection of valuable instrument. Only drawback is that brass latched align poorly and I suspect will eventually break with continous use.
              The padding and fur lining inside is superb and will provide maximum protection to the finish of instrument. I personally would like to see extra neck support but won't complain considering the low price.

                      My Fender Rustler has a sound board and overall thickness required me to remove the extra pad over the banjo head. This was easily done with an exacto knife and double sided carpet tape. this kept the case lid from pushing down on the banjo drum head
                      and distorting the set up tension. (something that should be checked with any case) Overall a great case for the price.
