I was looking for my first banjo hard case. Deering Special with resonator. The case is in my opinion sturdy construction: metal hinges and buckles, I really like green interior sets the vintage appearance. I gently pulled back the green velvet cloth and remove some of the padding to provide better fit for resonator, which was too snug until adjustment was made. Nice small compartment. The only improvement i could see would wish it came as a left hand case. Well made and recommend overall.

I too was diappointed that my banjo would not fit. Th lis would noy close. But, there is a real easy fix...the cradle blocks that hold the neck are made of styofoam. Take the screws out holding the blocks in the case. After peeling back the lining, take a knife and cut about a 1/4 inch of the block. Put the lining back and re-secure the blocks. Banjo fits like a glove.

Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Case for Banjo:

I bought this case in part because a few other comments indicate that this case is good for the Deering Goodtime 2. However, without alterations this is not the case - the case will not close. I like the case so need to decide whether to make alterations or return.

          Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Case for Banjo:

          I purchased this case to replace the gig bag included with a previous banjo purchase I didn't want to spend to much but wanted maximum protection for my Deering goodtime 2 banjo. When I recieved it and put my banjo in it I couldn't believe how well it fit, as they say, " fits like a glove" after ordering it I promptly received a confirmation email and three days later received the case, I will defenetly will deal with musician's friend in the future.

          Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Case for Banjo:

          The case was completely ill fitting but the larger problem was the quality. The fibers on the velveteen degraded, the glue that held the case together clearly did not hold the case together as it fell apart. Your money would be better spent on a different case. ps Musicians Friend customer service was awesome

          Like others have said Banjos don't fit in this case. Had to modify the supports for the neck just to get it closed. After modifying it is a very nice case.

                      I just bought a Deering Goodtime Two for my wife. Since it doesn't come with a case so we were looking for a quality, affordable case. This Silver Creek case is a great fit, has solid latches, and looks very nice. The case is a great value for the money.

                          Good value for the money. Excellent neck support, and padding around the rim. Somewhat light weigh for hardshell case, but the arched top is a nice feature. Hardware looks thin and easily damaged, but otherwise functional.
                          A best buy if you don't want to spend a bundle.

                              I bought this as a replacement for my 40 year old Gibson Mastertone case. The orignal case was in pretty bad shape. I am very very pleased with this new case and my Mastertone looks great and fits perfectly in it's new home. An outstanding value! If you are looking for a great looking, well made case, I highly recommend this one!

                                  The case is nice and it has a good cushion on the interior, i like the green felt over some with
                                  black felt. Just be careful with the tolex because
                                  it rips easy so don't slide it around. For this
                                  price i'm ok with it because i'm careful with all
                                  my gear. Save a bunch here and you will like the case. I will buy another one for my other Banjo
                                  soon.

                                  I bought this case to house my Fender FB-58. I will tell you, it is very snug at first. I was afraid it wasn't deep enough. But because it has the arched case, after a night of being snuggled in, the case closes easier now, and it feels and looks very secure. The handle is soft and I like the gold accents. This was a good buy for my banjo.

                                  This is a rugged, good looking case. I took my Gibson Mastertone to Ireland in this case. Although I did take extra precautions -loosening the strings and packing behind the pot and around the instrument with newspaper, I felt confident that the case would do its job, and it did. I don't think that you could find a better case for the money.

                                  I bought this case to replace my old wornout Fender case that was falling apart. This is a well-made case that cradles my 1968 Fender Artist banjo. It really fits like a glove. The inner compartment has loads of room and the outer clasps are really solid. The handle is great, too -- nice real leather. And the cushions for the peghead were an added bonus. At the price, it certainly is a bargain. I would recommend this to anyone who wants excellent storage/protection at an unbelieveably low price.
