I picked up one of these along with the purchase of my Alvarez acoustic. It is true, as stated in other reviews, that this case fits very tight, with the lid not wanting to close fully to be zipped. However, I have noticed that this was only temporary, because now my case is broken in and fits the guitar just right, and the lid now shuts fully. I suppose with the infinite number of various guitar sizes/shapes out there, these "fit-all" guitar cases must be designed this way so that the case can support any guitar securely. I really love this case, because it is light weight, and protects the guitar extremely well, yet allows the guitar to breathe since it is not locked inside an air-tight hardshell case. I always prefer a good gig bag over a hard case any day personally, due to I have several hardshell cases that must trap moisture inside and they tarnish the frets and hardware ( not to mention it ruins your strings prematurely ). This is a best of both worlds design. You have all of the comfort and storage benefits of a gig bag, combined with protection on par with a hardshell case!
I was about to order a hardshell case but I chose this on the last minute considering it has a strap so that I can easily travel around by sticking it on my shoulder...and it weighs less.Now it is overall a very good case but the only problem with this is that some Dreadnought acoustic guitars won't fit in properly...I have a Yamaha F310 and I have to push it forcefully inside and then zip it...it takes an effort!This is a very good case, except for the size issues.
I was tired of lugging sturdy, but heavy, guitar cases around and thought I would give this case a try. My Rogue 12-string fits and zips up perfectly. It has the padding and rigidness needed to protect my instrument but does not burden me with extra weight. I love it and will be buying more in the future as it is a quality product. I believe it is manufactured by Guardian.
I just got it. I stepped on it to see how durable it is; the body area flexed a couple inches under 150lbs of pressure. It's definitely not as protective as an actual hardshell case, but the foam makes it so that I can drop it and it won't damage the guitar. Just don't sit on it or put tons of stuff on top and it's an excellent guitar case. I bought it for my Martin DCX1E, it doesnt fit snuggly by any means, but the air pockets on the lid make it so the guitar doesnt shift during use. The pockets and backpack straps are very convienient and thats why I chose this case in the first place, but if it didnt have those I would've gone with a hardshell case.
Let me start off by saying that I hate gig bags. I endeavor to put my guitars in hardshell cases. I know that for musicians on a budget (like me) that can be a problem. I was looking online for a case for my beater guitar and came across the Durafoam. I read the reviews and for the price, decided to purchase one. I am very pleased with this product. It has alot of protection, is very light weight and has a nice set of compartments on the outside. Anyone who travels with guitars knows the abuse that they can get while loading, unloading and road trips. Although this isn't a hard case, it will definitely protect your axe.
This is the perfect case for people who occasionally pack a guitar for a car trip and want more protection than a gig bag can offer. The plush interior perfectly cradles any of my Fender electrics and between the spacious interior and the outer pockets, I have plenty of space for cords, tuner, picks, strings, etc. If anyone had told me ten years ago that there'd be a protective case that weighed so little, I'd have laughed and asked if it would fit snugly inside my flying car. This is the most practical case I've ever owned.
I bought a Travelite Durafoam-type case for my Metal Bodied Resonator, and liked it so much, I decided to order another for my my Washburn Dreadnaught. Well, it arrived today, and its not the same case, nor the same quality as the Travelite (which was the same price back when I bought it last year). This one is a Guardian case, will work just fine, but, next to the T.lite, is just not the same. I wish I had just bought the hard case, instead.
This a great case for the money. Well made, protective and nice looking. THe only issue I had with it was that it was very snug depth-wise. I am afraid it may put too much pressure on the bridge. I am hoping the foam will conform to my specific guitar. Only had it one day so only time will tell.
Had this case for about 7-8 months now. Fit my Washburn EA-9 like a glove and wraps it up in a stiff foam protective layer that is thick! It definitely takes the bumps and bruises in stride. A great value and light as can be. Outside pocket is large and comes in real handy. A definite winner.
Very pleased with the case. Very rugged and fits the guitar perfectly...no wiggle room!! Big roomy outside pockets...great case for the price...you can't go wrong....BUY THIS!!
