Great for vintage Fender dreadnoughts and triple-Os

I bought two of these cases for my vintage Fender Kingman and Wildwood, respectively, and both do an excellent job at keeping the guitars safe. I highly recommend the SKB-18 for anyone with a vintage Fender dreadnought, or any dreadnought for that matter.

SKB just earned my business forever.

I've bought this case back in 2006 and it's the only acoustic case I use. I transport my guitar in it to practice, to shows, even across the country multiple times. You could say I'm a credible source. Back in 2006, I was attracted by SKB's very confident lifetime warranty. What ultimately sold me was an SKB review I read in which a guy had his bass in an SKB on a trailer. While driving, the guitar fell onto the road and was run over. The case was destroyed, but the guitar was completely fine. Sure, that story seemed like a stretch, but it sold me. Since then, I bought two more SKB cases for other guitars. Fast forward to 2014 as I write this. I just took my acoustic on a weekend trip to the beach in my 8-year-old SKB case. I've known for 8 years this thing is a tank. Well, how about water damage? Long story short, I took my guitar to the beach, forgot about it, and the tide rose. My case, guitar inside, was floating in the salt water, the wake crashing over it. No doubt in my mind - I had just lost hundreds of dollars. I brought it to shore, opened it, and to my shock, the only water that was inside the case were the drips from opening it. If 8 years and 3 SKB cases wasn't enough to convince me, I am certain now. I am so grateful I made this purchase, and will continue to do so. Do yourself a favor and never buy a case that isn't SKB.

Excellent Case High Quality

This is the 2nd SKB guitar case I have purchased and they will be the only guitar cases I ever buy. The SKB company build a excellent case, very high quality, and worth every penny for the peace of mind you get knowing that you guitar is protected. They are great for traveling and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a durable well built guitar case.

SKB-18 Guitar Case

This case looks and feels like it could drop out of an airplane and my 12-string would still be in tune!

Great Case

I purchased this case for my D-55 Guild guitar. A great guitar deserves a great case and this is a dandy. Very durable case with beautiful plush lining and plenty of room for all the accessories I carry with my guitar. The latches are so easy to open and close the case. The handle has a great grip and the case is lighter than the case that came with the guitar originally and much better quality. I would highly recommend this case for any gigging musician who wants the ultimate protection for their guitar.
