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:

        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.

                I needed a guitar case that would fit my 67 Gibson Southern jumbo acoustic guitar. This one fit the bill perfectly. The case accommodated to Qatar like it was custom-made.

                      I own a Silver Creek Vintage Archtop 000 Auditorium case , I got for my Epiphone 1964 reissue Caballero and it's a great case fits the Caballero Perfect and has held up very well over the last couple years of in and out the van and at the gigs , so I ordered the Silver Creek vintage Dreadnought case and tried 4 of my Best Gibson and Epiphone acoustics in and they fit PERFECT , the Green plush is very nice and holds the guitars nice and snug, also the Arch top lids are pretty sturdy and the latches are also pretty sturdy , DONT be afraid to order this case because of its price or past reviews that put it down, they have stepped up the Q.C. on these and they really are nice I'm ordering 3 more .

                          I am just learning to play the guitar. I have a Washburn WD100 and it fit in this case perfect. It is fantastic looking and seems very well made. I am a trumpet player and can tell you even high end horns come with cases that are plain garbage. This guitar case is a pleasant surprise. It is beautiful and sturdy with quality material. Get one and you will love it!
