The best case scenario for your cherished electric guitar? A case, of course! Can you even imagine going anywhere without a guitar case? Everyone wants a top-quality, nice looking case that safely transports their instrument.
Electric guitar cases protect your guitar and keep it snugly in place so it doesn't move around during transport. Using a case for your electric guitar protects it from damage and keeps it sounding its best. Cases also insulate your instrument from inclement weather like rain or snow, as well as severe temperature changes that can occur during air travel.
Most electric guitar cases feature a padded interior or plush lining with a hard shell made of plastic or wood. Hardshell cases are perfect for the road. They're sturdy and heavy-duty, and offer great protection from bumps, smashes, bangs and temperature changes. Many of our hardshell guitar cases are able to lock, feature built-in wheels, offer extra compartments for storage, and have comfortable straps and handles. These extra features ensure your electric guitar stays safe and secure, regardless of how baggage handlers may move it around.
Some cases copy the shape of the guitar body itself, while others have a rectangular shape. The rectangular shape makes them easy to stack and to load along with other gear. Which style you choose is often up to your preference — do you prefer utility or style?
Features like a waterproof exterior ensure protection from rain and snow. If you take your guitar for longer trips than from the car to your studio, check out our cases with wheels. These make flight travel a breeze as you stroll through the airport. Plus, they come outfitted with high-quality, reliable TSA-approved latches and locks, seam gaskets for protection against temperature change, and comfy handles. These features will keep your guitar secured and protected during the entire flight and give you peace of mind. Both of you will reach your destination safe and sound.
