Great Case

These are very sturdy cases, I own 3. The first one I bought (about 7-8 yrs ago) has the metal draw-latches, the 2 newer ones have the TSA latches, which are great! My only reason for not giving a 5-star rating is because the handle mounts on the 2 newer cases have broken while I was carrying them, resulting in the cases falling to the ground. Neither guitar sustained damage, and I'll continue to use SKB cases, but beware, the handle mounts are only small pieces of solid plastic. In both instances SKB sent me the parts to repair the cases, free of charge.

First I have to say that "Delvin" in sales was and always has been a great guy, not just goes beyond a sales person but a REAL person and a guy that looks out for my needs. Now, secondly, I have heard that this bass case may be discontinued. Why, ? I ask. It is the best shaped case that has the best protection and price for a traveling musician. It fits well in a car, truck, van or plane, so why would they NOT continue this model. if this so true, I will have to buy at least 6 before they go out of circulation and production.
