I use a Line6 Helix for my local gigs, and the associated backpack. So my back is already accounted for as far as carrying gear goes. My local gigs are usually downtown affairs, often with a bit of a walk to the venue. While my gig bag was fine, it was a bit fussy because of the back straps. They gave me something to trip over or drag on the ground mostly. Enter this soft case. Although it gives a bit less storage space than the gig bag, it actually feels lighter to carry than my Mono M80, and the handle is in just the right place for balance, for my guitar at least. I still have enough room in the accessories area for the stuff I need. One word of caution, if you use a thick strap, or have strap locks on your strap, you may have to get creative to find a place for it. The accessory compartments are somewhat shallow, and are really only suitable for a thinner strap. Otherwise couldn't be happier. Build is great for the price, zippers are smooth. And the outer pocket is convenient, if not a little thin and unprotected feeling. I could probably fit my strap in that pocket...

Warning, if you love your guitar then don't buy this case. There is a screw that protrudes from the rubber foot and into the case thus jabbing gapping holes into whatever is in its way. This is not a dud, it is a manufacturing issue. I went into my local music store and touched my finger to the contact point of the bottom right bout of the case and I could feel the tip of the screw in every single one. You have been warned.....buy something else, i promise that you wont regret it.

this thing ruined guitar finish

By P-Whammy1

from nj

Comments about Road Runner Polyfoam Electric Guitar Case:

watch out!!! there is a problem with these cases!!it ruined the finish on my PRS. There is a screw like a sheet rock screw, that holds on the rubber feet and when the case gets bounced it pokes thru the padding into the body of your guitar. What a dissapointmet over all, Also the zipper broke on the storage compartment.

BUYER BEWARE

Comments about Road Runner Polyfoam Electric Guitar Case:

I own two of these and started out being very impressed with the cases. Until...

I noticed that one of my guitars was severely chipped near the input jack. Turns out, it was from the Road Runner case. The screw that attaches one of the four rubber feet to the case was poking through the interior foam and damaged the guitar.

I contacted Road Runner, and they asked for photos. They then said they would replace the case and pay for the repairs to the guitar. A month went by and I didn't hear or receive anything from them. I contacted them again, and they gave me the same story. It has now been four months, and I still have not heard or received anything from them.

I would strongly caution anyone looking at this case and would suggest going with another brand.

Comments about Road Runner Polyfoam Electric Guitar Case:

The case has four resting pegs on the bottom attached with screws. On one of my cases, one of the screws poked through the foam liner causing significant damage to the body of the guitar resulting in a large repair bill. I won't be using this case anymore.

Road Runner Polyfoam Electric Guitar Case

Ask me a question

Comments about Road Runner Polyfoam Electric Guitar Case:

I once dropped my fave guitar while it was in this case. It fell about four feet onto concrete, bounced up about two feet, and totally did it's job to a greater extent than a hardshell case would have because of the styrofoam interior surrounding the guitar - and the case even looked then same with no nicks. But the best thing is that you get all that protection at a very light weight! So if you have to schlepp your own rig, this really helps.
I love this case because it provides 1st class protection, but weighs much less than the standard "hardshell" cases do.
Had it two years and it still looks as good as when I bought it. And I don't baby cases either - I treat them as expendable objects that are designed to protect the contents.
The price vs service on this case has been exceptionally good.

Ruined my guitar

By Nameless-N90oE

from KC

Comments about Road Runner Polyfoam Electric Guitar Case:

Nice enough for the price, but only used a couple times, before it destroyed my guitar finish. I think I just got a bad one, but make sure you review yours. The rubber button that the case sits up on in the back, went through the case creating multiple screw holes in my guitar.Be advised

      This case is a perfect fit for a strat. It's lightweight but provides substantial protection. For typical transporting it's an excellent choice.

          Comments about Road Runner Polyfoam Electric Guitar Case:

          I bought this to go with my new MIM Strat and it fits perfectly. I was using a gig bag before this and always worried about the limited amount of protection provided. I had tried a hard case but it was so heavy (heavier than the guitar itself!) that I wanted to find something protective that did not weigh as much. This case weighs only a little more than a gig bag but provides the structural rigidity inside of a hard case, without all of the weight. It has a long tunnel for the neck and holds it very securely. The only things that I don't like are 1) the glue smell was very strong when I first opened it, and even after a few weeks it is still noticeable (I leave it open as much as possible and it is getting better with time) and 2) it is a little wobbly when sitting on the floor on carpet (not so bad on wood). I would highly recommend this case to anyone that wants protection and light weight.

                Works great to store guitar and help with dust etc. Ok to travel to take to a friend's or small gig but not for regular gig or heavy traveling. Using for Les Paul Studio - caution with toggle (I pressed and formed foam under lining to help protect toggle) also used a small wood block I lined with felt to put under head stock to help fit better to protect head and heck of guitar. Good basic case and reasonable price but not perfect fit for Studio even though used the case finder tool

                  Comments about Road Runner Polyfoam Electric Guitar Case:

                  Case is pretty nice. It feels sturdy and has 2 compartments on the inside for storage and two outside pockets for storage. I have no problem fitting extra strings my tremelo bar 2 pedals cables and picks. I thought it was a little pricey but there wasnt anything available cheaper that would fit my guitar according to the musicians friend case finder tool. ( i have an esp ltd m100fm, it fits great). Besides the price the only downside ive found was that the straps that hold the top of the case when its open get caught in the zipper when closing it, but thats not a big deal just push them in. There were some reviews saying there was a screw that pertrudes into the case, I dont see any screw they must have fixed that. Overall good case i would be comfertable taking it to some shows in it.

                        This is the second one of these I've bought. The first came with a guitar and I liked enough to buy another. Very light. Roomy. Dual string boxes keep things organized. The outer pockets are roomy enough to actually be useful. Offers decent protection for the price and the weight. Neither of my cases have the protruding screw issue. If I need another case I'd certainly buy another. They are also well balanced and you can carry two guitars with one hand leaving the other free for your amp or pedalboard.

                        Its a bit big for my Ibanez S-Classic, it was able to slide a bit top to bottom and side to side. Only say an inch or two in any direction.
                        I just put an old T-shirt in there to stop that from being possible.

                        There are a few reviews that state the screw from the feet pushes into the interior of the case, I checked that before I put my guitar in there -- Roadrunner must have altered the design because there's no screw there.

                        For the cost, this case is great.

                              I Love this Roadrunner guitar case, it's lightweight but, tough enough to handle the road. I would like one for my "V" and my Warrior. It doesn't take up as much space as my Explorer case does and really cuts down on the weight issue.

                              Nice basic rigid soft side case with lots of features. Well made, good quality zippers. Looks like it can take some abuse but wouldn't want to run it over with a car with my prized guitar in it. Could us a set of backpack straps or at least a set of D rings, but I'm picking nits. Usual lightning fast shipping from MF.
