    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.

    Just received my Silver Creek archtop dreadnaught case. I grew up in music retailing, and understand import quality can be spotty at best. This case is pretty ok, but for the money go for the a house brand and save a little. the interior is glued really sloppily, and that accessory compartment won't open and close without pulling the lining loose even further. I am using it mostly to house a guitar I don't play much in my instrument closet, so it is fine for that.

    Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Dreadnought Archtop Case:

    This is a nice case. I was not sure if this particular case fit my guitars that I build, but bought one anyway. It is a tight, tight fit for a dread with 16" lower bought, but will work. I wish the MF site would have listed the internal dims.
    The latches don't clamp down snugly.
    My comments are favorable over-all due to the price. I would not buy this case if it were any more expensive.

        This is a solid and truly well-made case. It triumphed where the GC-DREAD-12 DELUXE DREADNOUGHT 6/12-STRING GUITAR CASE failed in accommodating my new Seagull Coastline 12-String guitar, in fact, with ease and style!

            I can't believe what a beautiful, sturdy, and well-made case this is for the price. I love the extra strength and protection the arched top gives. The vintage touches really set of the beauty of my high end guitar. Highly recommend these cases. I don't think you'll be disappointed!

                    Appears to be a good solid case for my Seagull 12 string. Looks good. Not sure how it would hold up to a lot of abuse-(regular gigging), but for me it should work well. Only issue is the inside pocket cover which is too tight and hard to open- not a big deal.

                    Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Dreadnought Archtop Case:

                    I was looking for a case to protect a Breedlove 12 string with a concert size body and this fit the bill really well, it has a little extra room but not much. Head stock fits with 1" plus to spare. Lots of latches, maybe even over kill, but what the heck, the case won't open unless you want it to. Love the plush green insides, well padded, nice stitching on the outside, covering could be a little thicher, but for this kind of money if it looks ratty in 5 years, I'll buy another one. I don't think you'll find a better case for this kind of money and probably not even for 50% more money. If you need a case, buy this one, you won't be dissapointed, and if you don't like it Musicians Friend always makes it easy to return.

                      I bought this case at the recommendation of a Musicians' Friend consultant to house a Dean Resonator I purchased. He said it would be a good fit. The case is sturdy with more than enough latches (maybe too many?) but it is not as good a fit for the guitar as I might have wanted. But when you try to fit something like that aftermarket you have sometimes accept what is available.

                            I got this case for an early '90's Ephiphone dobro I had rebuilt. It fits like a glove, but it was too deep. The fix was easy. Went to a craft store & got some 1 inch foam, cut it to shape, laid it in the bottom & it works like a charm. Covered the foam with some matching material & it looks like it belongs there.
                            My favorite cases are the SKB hard shells,but when your working with odd size guitars sometimes you have to get innovative. I have one case for an old Harmony arch top that I ripped the lining out of & added & subtracted foam material to get a good fit for the guitar. This approach probably wouldn't work for some people, because it takes some time & patience, but it works for me. If a case is close to what I need I can tweak it here & there & make it work.
