Great CaseWhen I read other reviews here I hesitated to buy this case. One said the handle was off-center and made it hard to carry (this reviewer was talking about a completely different item). Another said there were only 3 latches with out a lock. However it does have 4 latches, one with a lock. The only thing I was disappointed about was that the photo in the Sweetwater listing shows that there is room for the pedals and cords at the end of the keyboard and there isn't. I have a Hammond SK1 and it just fits in the case with no room to spare. The SK1 is shorter than my midi controller so I'm thinking there may be a 49 key keyboard that would be too long for this box.
Overall, the quality of the case is excellent with an abundance of padding and very sturdy construction. If your new keyboard made it to you in a cardboard box, it should last forever in this case.

Great case!Worked well out of the box. I had this and the controller to go in it, shipped to an out-of-town job and flew to two different locations using it. The built in TSA lock is great! The case is a little on the heavy side, but well under the 50lb limit of the airlines ( with a keyboard inside, pedal and cables) and did an axcellent job keeping my gear flawless like I like it:)

Great case for Hammond SK-1 keyboardThe Gator 49-key hard case turned out to be a great value for the money. I was told by the salesperson at a large chain music store that I wouldn't be able to find a hard case for my new Hammond SK-1 keyboard for under $350. However, the Gator 49-key hard case at Sweetwater was only around half that price, and my Hammond SK-1 fits perfect in the case. My only negative about the case is that the online pictures show it with wheels which it actually doesn't have. Nonetheless, I highly recommend the case for protecting the Hammond SK-1.

Does the trickReally solid case. I'm using it for my D.S.I. Prophet 08 and it fits perfectly. I suspect a nord 61 would also fit perfectly since they are about the same size. I feel okay piling my prized synth in the back of a tour van or in a cab because of this thing. The locking thing is a nice feature too.

Gator CaseI got this For my Hammond SK1. The SK1 fits perfect. Not really any room left for more than a cord or two. Makes a great package for getting the SK1 around.

Perfect Case For The Korg PS60As the last review stated, the 3 latches (not 4) force the handle to be off center. This is no big deal. The case might be just a little bit harder to carry and one end might droop, but this is not a problem for me because, #1. I have a light-weight keyboard and #2. I have fairly good wrist strength. This case seems to be made exclusively for the Korg PS60. It's such a perfect fit, I'm still in shock. The dimensions of the interior they give you are of the foam liner, not the case. This is soooo cool!
The only down side is, the latches seem like they might be trouble down the road...but only because I've never seen/used any like these before. Just me being paranoid, I guess.
