Purchased for a vintage mid-range classical guitar. Fit is perfect. Excellent build quality, certainly the best case you'll find for the money. It's very well balanced when carrying.

Although this is a budget case, I wouldn't have any problem using this for an expensive concert guitar. The build quality is that good.

The only thing that would make this case complete is if the put external D-rings so you could use a shoulder strap like high end classical guitar cases, but that's a minor issue and I think I'm going to add my own.

I tried 4 (four) classical guitars -- and not a single one of them could fit inside of this case. Nada. The interior is too small. Don't get this case unless it is for an unusually small guitar -- like a child size or some other specialty guitar.

Although the spec's say that the upper bough width is 11 inches -- that is technically true, but the part of the case interior which is 11" wide is so tiny that you cannot fit a classical guitar in there without smashing. And no one should be squeezing and smashing the thin wood of a classical guitar, right? They didn't get the curves right -- by a long shot. After pressing the very hard cushions for a very long time, I managed to finally squeeze (OMG) one guitar in the case -- but then I couldn't close the lid because the depth of the case isn't deep enough for my thinnest standard classical guitar. GMAB.

However, if you happen to have a non-standard *small* guitar, this case looks great -- fabulous for the money. If it were usable, (!) I would have given it five stars. It looks very nice and seems sturdy. The plush interior looks nice and a little compartment is always handy. Although some reviewers complained about the six latches, I actually see that as a plus because the case closes nice and tightly -- Looks like it would be excellent for holding the humidity inside, which was my primary goal in looking for a case. Also, I think it's a plus that it does not have a wood lining to soak up humidity away from the guitar.

So, five stars, except for the fact that it is not usable. Well, unless you have a miniature guitar.

        Comments about Silver Creek Classical Guitar Case:

        Very well made, sturdy and a beautiful green interior, much like the cases Martin use but without the gorgeous smell!
        One note of caution - check your instrument dimensions - it really is snug verging on tight for larger classicals.

        A superb case for your classical

        By Ron-f9AO1

        from Dallas, TX

        Comments about Silver Creek Classical Guitar Case:

        This is a superb case for a classical guitar. The arched top has a sort of "volute" that old Martin guitars had. The workmanship and quality of hardware are first rate. I find I like looking at the case almost as much as I like looking at my new classical guitar. An excellent deal, expecially at the reduced price.

          Comments about Silver Creek Classical Guitar Case:

          MF's case finder steered me to this, but it does not fit the AC65CE. This is primarily due to Alvarez's newer electronics which are no longer recessed (they protrude now).

          Comments about Silver Creek Classical Guitar Case:

          Just received this an hour ago, it was on backorder. My Alvarez Hybrid Nylon Electro Acoustic fits nicely & tightly in. Just be careful with the knobs on the top bout if you have an electro/acoustic, until the foam conforms with time.

          Too many latches, real overkill, but hey better than not enough! It's also lightweight and seems well made. Mine had a slight scuff in the Tolex when it arrived, nothing worth sending it back for, but the lack of padded packaging probably caused it (screwed up brown paper doesn't make it these days MF). Some bubble wrap would have prevented it.

          Good case for the money.

            I purchased one of these cases to keep my better classical guitar in. I was impressed the first time I laid my guitar down in it. I had a case that looked similar some years ago but it was not made nearly as well as this case. I recommend you buy this case and not sell it if you happen to want a different classical guitar in the future. Keep this case for your present guitar and any guitar you might have in the future.

            Comments about Silver Creek Classical Guitar Case:

            I needed a case for an Alvarez AC65CE Classical guitar. The case didn't seem deep enough at first, but the top is deeper than most cases, which makes up for the short sides. The top arch makes good room for the bridge.

            It was a tight fit at first, but the foam padding compressed just enough. I've used the case for a month with no complaints. It looks more expensive and it is comfortable to carry. I may buy a second one for an older guitar.

              Comments about Silver Creek Classical Guitar Case:

              I've owned a number of these cases, and I continue to recommend them to folks who own smaller-sized flattop guitars, such as Gibson LG-2 or L-00. I bought this case for a new, Chinese-made Gretsch Alligator resonator guitar. It's an excellent fit, though I had to place a folded towel under the guitar to make up some excess space under the top of the case.

              These cases are nicely constructed, compactly proportioned, and well balanced. Comfortable handle, too. And the price is right.

              The only thing I'd like to see changed is an option for a light colored (e.g., tweed) covering. Good instruments should not be exposed to summer heat and sunlight in black cases.

                  Great case and I'm glad I invested the extra money. The inside is beautiful and the overall case is pretty durable. My Cordoba C5-CE fits but it is quite snug. No problem though. Just tilt the side with the tuner in first then get other side in. Highly recommended but if your guitar is bigger than a C5-CE look elsewhere.

                  It might look nice, but when I bought it recently,the handle fell off after one day. Cosmetically it's great, but the workmanship is not up to par. Save your money and get a more expensive case, that's what I should have done.

                  .
                  Just purchased this case for my 1965 Gibson LG1 acoustic guitar. The fit is perfect and the quality of the product high. As others have observed, the handle is not as securely attached to the case as it could be and may need to reinforced at some point. That having been said, I am pretty confident that you won't find a better case for a parlor-sized guitar at this price point.

                  Bottom-line, this is a good product at a very reasonable cost.

                  Comments about Silver Creek Classical Guitar Case:

                  Great bargain, solid case. These isn't a lot of data or guidance out there regarding the proper case to house a resonator; I took a chance on this and came out ahead. I'm sure that it would be a good choice for the classical guitars its designed for. BTW, I love the green crushed velvet lining...unusual color. I would recommend that vendors include more precise measurements in their online descriptions to eliminate this guesswork, because if it hadn't fit well I would have had to hassle with sending it back...at vendor's expense.. I think you could avoid some of this by measurements, and maybe a partial list of guitars that fit perfectly in the case.
                  I took a chance and bought this for an all-brass resonator that I recently purchased. I wasn't sure it would fit, but it is nearly perfect. I might have to bolster the lower bout slightly to get the neck to sit flatter in there, since the body is slightly thinner than a typical classical, but other than that, no worries
                  I was surprised at how nice the case is for the price. Very solid with a nice padded handle, arched top, 5 good latches and solid hinges. Nice finish to the outside. Looks, feels and functions like a much more expensive case. This is better than a factory case that came with one of my Larrivees and I'm tempted to replace it with one of these.
                  As stated above; if these are consistant as to quality, you can't go wrong.

                        I bought this case for my boyfriend and he absolutely loves it! We had no issues with the function of the case. This case was exactly what I was looking for, but I almost didn't purchase it because of the leather handle. I was specifically looking for a hard shell case with out leather, which is why I was interested in this case in the first place, but the handle had to be leather. There's just no reason to mix materials. However, this is still a stellar case and we will enjoy it for many years to come!

                            I tried 4 (four) classical guitars -- and not a single one of them could fit inside of this case. Nada. The interior is too small. Don't get this case unless it is for an unusually small guitar -- like a child size or some other specialty guitar.

                            Although the spec's say that the upper bough width is 11 inches -- that is technically true, but the part of the case interior which is 11" wide is so tiny that you cannot fit a classical guitar in there without smashing. And no one should be squeezing and smashing the thin wood of a classical guitar, right? They didn't get the curves right -- by a long shot. After pressing the very hard cushions for a very long time, I managed to finally squeeze (OMG) one guitar in the case -- but then I couldn't close the lid because the depth of the case isn't deep enough for my thinnest standard classical guitar. GMAB.

                            However, if you happen to have a non-standard *small* guitar, this case looks great -- fabulous for the money. If it were usable, (!) I would have given it five stars. It looks very nice and seems sturdy. The plush interior looks nice and a little compartment is always handy. Although some reviewers complained about the six latches, I actually see that as a plus because the case closes nice and tightly -- Looks like it would be excellent for holding the humidity inside, which was my primary goal in looking for a case. Also, I think it's a plus that it does not have a wood lining to soak up humidity away from the guitar.

                            So, five stars, except for the fact that it is not usable. Well, unless you have a miniature guitar.

                              I couldn't believe any of our classical guitars wouldn't fit..the space for the upper bout was too narrow by far..the case seems well built and 6 matches is overkill..i decided to house my 60yr old Stella in it
