CASE CLOSED...HAPPY CUSTOMER
by from UKAfter purchasing the exact same case 4 years ago, I can see the differences straight away regarding the new style. Goodbye metal edges and pins and hello black moulded hard plastic...apparently indest... read more [+]ructible. After checking my guitar onto a recent international flight in previous case, I was boasting about the strength and durability of these great cases...picked it up and it fell to the floor...handle broken due to pins dislodged! It was brilliant comic timing but very worrying! As soon as I reached my destination I bought the new style..more fitting on the inside, no pins and I like the locks...so a good purchase.. close [-]

Great value for the price

I'd give this case a higher rating, but these latches tend to pop open easily. Still finding need to gaffer tape before flying. My case does not close perfectly tight around the headstock.
Nevertheless, this Gator Case w TSA latches has served well on the half dozen or so flights so far as checked baggage. It's taking a beating for sure and showing signs of it, but the guitar has been fully protected. Therefore I consider it a great value. Nothing else I've found compares in it's price range. If it ends up trashed after a year of heavy travel, I'll have no problem buying another. close [-]
