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.

        Impressive quality on the case construction and materials used. Easily the best bang for the buck at this price imo. My Yamaha FG720SL fits perfect.

          Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Dreadnought Archtop Case:

          I bought this case to house my recently purchased Sigma SD-18 dreadnought size guitar. I wanted to get an affordable case to replace the gig bag that I originally purchased with the guitar, without paying as much for the case as I did for the guitar.

          First off, the case is absolutely gorgeous. The emerald green lining is beautiful, and compliments the mahogany and spruce colors of the guitar very well, as well as the tortoise colored binding and pickguard on the guitar. The whole combination looks very vintage, and much more expensive than it actually cost. The case is a perfect fit for this standard dreadnought size guitar, and holds the guitar securely with no movement back and forth. The case has 2 support points for the neck, and encases a larger than average storage pocket with ample room for capo, tuner, picks, and other accessories. The pull tab for the storage pocket is leather, a nice touch. The padded lining of the case is 3/4" thick, and while firm to the touch, allows some compression to absorb shock. There is a cut-out space in the lining at the bottom of the case to allow room for the end pin to reside, without making contact with the case.... a very nice and unexpected safety feature. You can actually feel the pattern in the emerald green lining that you see in the photos, and the lining material is nice and soft. The arched top built into the top of the case provides room for the bridge and saddle of the guitar. There is an extra layer of padding on the bottom of the case at the upper bout to securely position the guitar body with respect to the neck supports, as well as an extra layer of padding around the perimeter of the arched top of the case, to securely hold the body of the guitar when the lid is closed. The case hinges are covered by a layer of the lining to guard against nicking your guitar while taking the guitar in and out.

                See Pros and Cons, there are no cons. Silver Creek Dreds were awesome as wells as the 000's, I miss them. But if all they make are the cases, I'm glad they are still in the business. Dred and 000 cases for everyone's clone. I put my Silver Creek Dred in one, and my son's Ibanez 12 string too. Fit and finish is great and the cost doesn't break the bank.
