Drive a tank over this case and it will protect your guitar

By Mikey and the Muddy Puppies

from Williamsburg, VA

Comments about SKB Injection Molded Waterproof Acoustic Guitar Case w/ Wheels:

I stood on this case and it did not budge a millimeter. I think you could drive a tank over it. It will protect your guitar. It will NOT hold a 12 string.

Remember that now you can take your guitars on planes. This of course will not fit in the overhead compartment. But you can check it at the door of the plane and they will stow it along with the wheelchairs and baby carriages. Then you retrieve it and do it for the next leg of the trip.

Comments about SKB Injection Molded Waterproof Acoustic Guitar Case w/ Wheels:

I flew from Washington, DC to Tanzania in east Africa with my prized acoustic guitar in this case. I bought this case because it was waterproof and I thought SKB was a reliable brand. My guitar fit in the molded case nice and snug and the neck and head stock had excellent support. My guitar made it in perfect condition...arriving with me just like I had packed it. It has played great, just like at home. The price of this case was well worth the protection it gave guitar. Anyone flying with their acoustic guitar should have this case!

Comments about SKB Injection Molded Waterproof Acoustic Guitar Case w/ Wheels:

SKB absolutely got this one right!
I immediately ordered this case and a Planet Waves humidifying system from MF when I bought my expensive Taylor, even before I had the guitar. I wish they still offered the green interior, but no matter...
It's heavy and takes up some space, yes, but it's the BEST case I have ever seen or owned. These are heads and tails much better than the old plywood based travel cases, and no heavier or expensive than they are either.
THREE large & comfortable handles for carrying and the wheels are a huge plus as well.
The latches are a dream to operate and there are many (6.) The two at each end are of the locking variety.
The guitar fits VERY snugly in this case. It will NOT move once fully inside.
The life expectancy of the humidifier packets is 3 months. This case is so watertight that I've had the same two packets in the for well over a year now!! A time and money saver.
The two large storage bins are an extra added bonus.
If going to a local gig or party, I wouldn't use this case. It's too heavy and not necessary for that. But for safe, humidified storage and traveling I wouldn't use anything else!!
'Think this is a lot to pay for a case? Nah, cheap insurance for your $2000, or any prized instrument. Believe me.

So Far It Has protected my Bourgeois D slope

    Comments about SKB Injection Molded Waterproof Acoustic Guitar Case w/ Wheels:

    Well it has traveled from Virginia to Mexico. Then to Guatemala and bus and van rides throughout Guatemala. Then back to Mexico, Denmark, Scotland and Spain. It has done the job of protecting my costly instrument. But, let me tell you if you have to do anything other than car to airport and to car or bus...watch out! I have had to lug this guitar and it is a beast, especially packed with other things that the great case accommodates. I have had to walk it up steep trails that needed a Sherpa for my old handcarts that was huffing and puffing. No need to pump iron when hoisting the mammoth around. Also, the cost of transportation begins to add up! Every flight outside of the USA cost additional money .

    Again, if you don't have to lug it other than to a truck, van, and the airport. NO problem other than the stares! I ordered a very expensive replacement, and I mean expensive, because of the type traveling I am doing. Bottom line, if you want a case, and size and weights no issue, this baby has done the job! And for that I would recommend it highly! But, the amount of traveling I am doing it won't be long before I have recovered the cost of what I paid for my fancy case.And as a previous commenter said my humi-paks are 9 months and still functioning from jungle to desert environments!

      Comments about SKB Injection Molded Waterproof Acoustic Guitar Case w/ Wheels:

      I have a vintage Martin dreadnaught and usually travel with it on my person 100% of the time. I needed a better quality case that would protect it in a more uncertain environment. I shopped the Calton cases and the new lightweight fiberglass cases out there. They were $1100-1200 and 6 weeks delivery in most cases. I needed something fast and went for this case. It was super easy to order. It shipped that same day and arrived at my doorstep 2 days later. The ole' D-18 fit in there very well. I plan to snug up the fit a bit with some bubblewrap or something similar. I like the additional storage space in there. The workmanship seems excellent and there is a lifetime guarantee. I'm quite pleased with the price and value of this case.

          Bought this case a couple of years ago, and have flown extensively with it overseas. Never an issue, protects the contents very well, and is easy to transport with the built in wheels. Also has plenty of storage for other gear. Best cases on the market.

            Its actually not too heavy considering its size and strength. Finally I can check my guitar instead of having to carry it.
