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.

Vintage Dreadnought Archtop Case

This is an OK case for the money, it will protect and serve. I had to pull out the foam and put in additional foam to make a tight fit for my guitar.

    Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Dreadnought Archtop Case:

    A good and functional case my Guild D25 has a really deep body and the case is pretty tight, but will wear in and the padding will compress to fit better in a few weeks. The lock didn't work, but since I don't use these locks anyway it is no problem, probably if I took the time I could make the lock work. I would like to have a larger storage compartment, but I knew that it was just barely adequate before I bought. A good value and works well, I like the large number of latches.

        Good quality and good price. Seems a little small. I have a Martin 000 size. It fits snug in the dreadnought case without being too tight. Same guitar would not fit in their 000 case. Many dreadnoughts might not fit this case.

                  This acoustic guitar case is build better than the top selling cases. The most obvious is the thick bottom plywood. The arched top and sides appear to be just as strong. The hardware is as impressive. There are 6 large brass latches and 3 very sturdy hinges. Also the interior padding is thick and very attractive. To top it all off the case comes in a black bag which will keep your case clean from dust while in storage. For the money, I bought the right case & had it in 3 days. There is no reason to buy a premium priced case. I might even buy the tweed model too. Jeff

                    I bought this case for a used 12 string Takamine but it fits my Seagull just as perfectly. Was pleasantly surprised, excellent case for the price. Very snug fit (almost too snug) for a standard dreadnought style guitar. Hardware is nice, not extreme duty but adequate for the type case and with six latches, guitar will not be in danger of falling out even if one would ever fail. No issues with adhesive smell I read about in another review. Tolex covering looks nice, not sure what is under the tolex but case feels very sturdy and strong . Will provide good protection.

                        Was looking for a case for my Burgundy AE Dreadnought. Once I saw this case on Musicians Friend, and read the reviews, I knew it would be perfect. And it absolutely is! The fit is perfect. The hardware secures it better than all my other cases. The liner is beautiful. I truly love this case.

                            Bought this case for my new Seagull Entourage Rustic Dreadnaught . It fits like a glove! And looks great! The big selling point for me was that it has 6 latches and the added protection of the arch topped lid! Add in the fact that it went on sale and It was a no brainer. (I was gonna buy one anyway, really)!
