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.

      I expected better quality from MF supplies! The handle is incredibly poorly attached and makes the case pretty useless without means of moving the item around let alone for gigs!!

        Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Dreadnought Archtop Case:

        I purchased one of these cases from Musicians Friend a few years ago and I have been very happy with it. So when I needed a case for another guitar this was my first choice. I have a 1976 Alvarez Yairi DY 77 in one and a 1979 Fender F-80 12 string in the other. Because of the excellent padding both guitars fit like a glove with no movement. I hope this helps with sizing.

                    I would like to second the review done by KYGUILD from Ashlund , KY ( 5-7-16 ). The case is very appealing to the eye and fits my STARCASTER DREAD. perfectly. The quality is better than case's at this price and several costing much more. Now to be ( real nick picky ) , there were two small finger tip glue prints, on each side of case near the neck support exterior screws closest to the headstock. I also noticed the bottom/side overlap seam had approx. 5/8th in. x 1/8 in. that didn't get glue down nice like the rest of the tolex did. After having this case for a few months now, there has become a 6 in.+ section of cloth in the center of the archtop that has lost it's tack to the foam padding, and Lastly, the latch and hinge alignment are not perfect but are satisfactory. The glue issues are easily remedied with a syringe and a little glue. I feel the LOOK, QUALITY, and VALUE are all there and wouldn't hesitate to purchase this case again.

                        Tight secure fitting for Mitchell MD100, Yamaha F335, Yamaha FG-512 12 string, & several other dreadnoughts I have put in it. They did not have that 1" of end travel sliding space that I have seen with most of my other cases. I have only used this for in house & local gatherings. No hard road use, but appears to be built very sturdy. If I needed another dreadnought case, I would not hesitate to purchase it without looking at other brand options.
