A good case for the price. I had to send back the first case because the case didn't close tight by the lower bout. The metal binding appeared to be bent at the factory. Replacement case was just fine. The case interior is larger than my Seagull guitars and had to fill in the space around the guitar body with soft cloths which was not a problem.
Sturdy hardshell exterior. Interior is plush enough to protect guitar finish. Hinges on the case are a little light, but work well enough.
Metal bindings/seals don't line up perfectly when closing the case.
For me this case is worth the price.

This hardshell case does not provide the proper fit for a standard Dreadnought Acc. guitar!!! It is too big for your standard Dreadnought, and therefore the guitar is not held properly and moves around. I also found that to be true of their skb-18 case as well !!! I have many standard Dread guitars and NONE of them fit properly into this case-- it was to big for every one of them. Thay must have made it bigger to be more of a universal case, but that does not help the person who justs wants a case to fit their Dreadnought properly. I was very disappointed and returned two of these cases.

    Comments about SKB Economy Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Case:

    Yup, the reviews are correct. The case does not close flush and needs to be tweaked to fully close. It's functional for an at home practice case but certainly not durable enough to take on the road.

        Comments about SKB Economy Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Case:

        This case is as advertised. It fits my dreadnought sized Yamaha folk guitar perfectly. It will be too large for my grandson's jumbo acoustic, however. Since he does not travel with his guitar, we'll use the towel at the end of the case trick to secure the guitar.

          I use this case for my Seagull Maritime SWS. As other reviews stated, it's a little big but a a small towel takes care of that. The inside is very nice and plush. Overall construction is solid.

            Comments about SKB Economy Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Case:

            I bought this SKB economy dreadnaught case for my son's Taylor 114 grand auditorium sized guitar. The case is great. It is a little big for the body of the guitar, but will still hold the guitar when closed. I took measurements before ordering and purchased knowing it would be a little big ... by about 1.25". A thin Ernie Ball strap folded in half and placed at the tail of the case can fill up the space, but isn't necessary.

            I have two SKB's, one for my Fender and one for my Ibanez semi-hollow electric. This is my son's second SKB. We like the brand.

            SKB's are cool cases.

              Comments about SKB Economy Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Case:

              I had ordered a different case, but it was backordered, so I wound up getting this one. I've read other reviews that the latches didn't line up exactly. I have not had this problem. Latches are just fine. The lining of the case surprised me. It's a nice soft green interior with a roomy hidden storage area underneath the neck channel for picks or small metronome, or whatever.

              I'm glad I didn't get the other case. Super happy with this one.

                I purchased this case as a gift for my son. The case was sent to his address so as yet i have not seen the case for myself. However, my son is very pleased with it and said it fits his guitar perfectly.

                  I had recently purchased a Jasmine S34C without a case but found out I had to travel by airline for an extended stay. Called Muscian's Friend and they hooked me up with this case. Was slightly large and with some polishing cloths worked great. The airline checked in at the oversized door. At the other end was safe and sound. Very study, nice looking inside and out. Great job Musician's Friend!

                    A Good Case

                    Comments about SKB Economy Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Case:

                    I purchased this case as it seemed most similar to the case that comes with higher end Martins. I like the hard plastic exterior, aluminmum rim around the whole thing. It does fit my dread quite well, with a small amount of wiggle that is resolved with a polish cloth tucked in. It has to fit "all" dreads so expect some space. I recently traveled on airline and everything arrived safely both ways. Passes my test.
