I love this case and I bought it because of the price and the many many positive reviews. I'd been looking for a while but most cases in this price range look feel and perform like you'd expect but this case is in a different league. One review I read the guy talked about being over 200lbs. and standing on top to test it, noting the case passed with flying colors. I wouldn't do that but I have no doubt they are being truthful as this case is so well built for the price I almost think they sent me the wrong one. But no mistake was made, this IS the case I ordered and it is as good or better then a $150 or $200 case easy; and that's not just lip service. You can't disguise the true quality of a case when you get your hands on one, cheap cases are flimsy and not well padded with cheap latches and appointments. This case is the opposite in each and every way possible, it is very well made, sturdy, stiff and fairly heavy too. The interior padding is thick and substantial and the emerald green crushed velvet interior is just more beautiful then I can express.

I am still sort of stunned and surprised by the quality and quantity of the latches. There are no less then SIX count em SIX latches. I've actually seen a couple of reviews complaining about this and it made me laugh, I'll take all six thank you very much. Four and five latches are good, six is better plain and simple.

You could take this case to any number of experienced musicians and ask "How much do you think this case costs?" and you're going to get $150 to $200 every time, it's simply that well built. One guy said he weighs over 200lbs. and stood on top of it to test it and it passed with ease. Although I myself wouldn't go that far to test the quality I have no doubt it is true, you can just see and feel how well built this case is.

As always MF gave me a great price, sent it with free shipping, no tax and got it to me faster then any company I have ever worked with which is standard practice at MF they do it every time. MF doesn't mess around when it comes to shipping, you buy it and the product is out their doors and shipped before the day is out with an email sent letting you know before you can check. It took only two days and it was at my door smiling back at me AMAZING really.

Understand this case isn't for the touring musician, it's not a road case or a flight case but I it will do very well in almost any other situation from the local gigger to the Tuesday night open jammer.

Make no mistake a standard dreadnought will fit like a glove in a glove, zero movement within the case ZERO. I didn't want a case where my guitar flops around inside during travel,if that had been the ...case ...I would have returned it in a second.

Bottom line if you're looking for a good solid case for you dread you can spend more if you want but you won't get a better case even for much more money.

One more thing. I have read one or two people that were concerned that the case isn't deep enough to fit a 4.5 deep dread but that is NOT an issue at all. My dread is almost a full 5 inches in depth and the guitar fits perfectly in the case, there is no lack of depth in the case itself as far as holding a dread safely none. You can expect your dread to fit without issue so buy with confidence this case is a world beater.

This was the fourth or fifth of these Silver Creek cases I bought...have been my favorites until this one.the Tolex (?) covering was shrunk away from two seams, leaving a white glue strip exposed.
the lid is flimsy-er feeling now..lighter and thinner.
One of the rear hinges seems to have been crushed in..obvious when case is opened.
Last one I'll buy...apparently the bean counters have taken over, and its a pity. Has been a class act until now!

    Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Dreadnought Archtop Case:

    Bought case to protect guitar in car to take to classes. It does add weight but its a small inconvenience for sturdy protection. Beautiful plush lining but a little thick around the accessory door making it hard to close. All in all its a stand out case

      Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Dreadnought Archtop Case:

      This is a fantastic case for the money. It is well built and looks great. The crushed green velvet lining is beautiful against any guitar. It is a lot nicer than I expected for the price. I bought it for a 1968 Gibson J160E and it fits very well. It is superior to other budget cases that are slightly less expensive.
      I will buy this when I need another case. It exceeded my expectations.

        Fits my dreadnought perfect! Accessory lid a bit tight but I have no problem with that. Great value! Only time will tell.

          Good padding and strong construction. 6 latches. Taylor 150e 12 string fits a little snug around the body but plenty of room for head and tuning keys. Neck supports well placed. Can't beat it for the price.

            My Breedlove dreadnought fits very snug. You can hear wind get pushed out as the guitar is pushed down in. The green interior make the abalone inlay pop. I was worried about taking my guitar anywhere in my old cardboard case, but this case makes me feel much better.

              Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Dreadnought Archtop Case:

              This seems like a very solid good-quality case, but it was a little too snug for my Epiphone Masterbilt DR500MCE. I was told to avoid any pressure on the preamp controls when selecting a case, so that was the main problem. For a purely acoustic guitar of the same size it would probably be okay. I ended up going with the MF black case, which fits perfectly and does not squeeze the knobs.

              Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Dreadnought Archtop Case:

              Very satisfied with this beautiful case. Can't imagine a better case for even twice the money paid. The internal padding is just right for my Takamine dreadnought and the double neck support is a great design over most all other cases I researched. The interior fabric looks great but most importantly is protects as it should. It's not furry & fluffy like other cases which is good because the furry stuff gets padded down & compacted which ultimately won't remain as tight a fit as this. Therefor this case will hold the guitar more firmly for a longer period of time. The extra latches are terrific, work perfectly, and everything lines up perfectly as well. Overall I couldn't be more satisfied and if I needed another acoustic case I wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

                more than met my expectation, arrived in good condition. I wanted a case that would protect the guitar I spent 6 weeks building and it does an excellent job at that. very satisfied.

                  I have not taken it on the road yet. I will also take a flight this summer so I will see how it fair then. However, the case seems very well constructed and sturdy and my Ibanez Acoustic/Electric fits like a glove.
                  Even though some might disagree, i really like the six sturdy gold locks!
