I have been looking for a hard-shell case for my Fender Sonoran acoustic . It has a Strat neck and a dreadnought body. Sweetwater helped me fine the right one with ease. Love the treats they send in the packaging too! :-)

SKB 1SKB-8 Case - Solid Stuff

This marks the fifth SKB case in this same basic line now in our stable. They are sturdy, light, and very manageable. Though I prefer multi-laminate, archtop wood cases in general, thermoplastic cases have definite utility in some situations. These are the best value I've found so far in that configuration. If you want something beefier, badder and battle-ready, look for other pricier options. If you need something the works well in peacetime for a reasonable cost, consider the 1SKB-8.

SKB 1SKB-8 Case is just great

Thanks Seeetwater for this great case at at an even greater price. Shipped for free. Can't beat that. I was concerned about the fit for the Ibanez V300 due to the large headstock on it. This case fits the guitar like a glove. Inside has great padding so no concern about damage to the guitar. I purchased another brand dreadnaught case previously but returned it as quality was not as good and it did not fit my guitars. Learned my lesson, will purchase my gear from the fine folks at Sweetwater. Thanks guys, this case made a wonderful Birthday present.

Great case

SKB makes great, solid cases for a good price. This is the third SKB case I've purchased; it's replacing a dreadnought case that I left on a mission trip. I'm confident the old case will keep their guitar safe even in the rain forest. The new one is better than their previous design, with nicer padding, but still the same tough shell and secure latches. I also have an electric bass case from SKB that is very good. And, it's American made.
