cases

Recommended Posts

Yes, I was sorry enough to picture some of my cases. I dont suppose I'm the only one though.

The first one is not actually that much good. Its strong enough to do its job, but the latches dont line up well, so the head end needs a thump to engage. Its a Kinsman:

This is a ric case. Its pretty good. The best part are the latches they can be opened & closed with just a finger. Quiet too, like a quality car door.

Good old generic 80s tweed case with  Tele - which in fact has its own black Fender case

Calton (UK) early 80s made to measure, reinforced fiberglass -  apologies for kitchen floor shot

My favourite guitar case would be a black Gibson chainsaw with all the latches working.  Those recent steel(?) ones didn't look bad either.

That's a much better tweed case than my cheapie one. 

The Gibson metalic ones were aluminium. Yes I very much like the look of those too. This is a SG one (e-bay add)

My LP Chainsaw case proved to be a very good fit for my Blues Hawk..

I have a few identical LP cases.

Another one of my LP cases, one of a few I got at the same time.

I have 3 different SG cases for 4 guitars.

My Gibson SG case fits my Wilshire a little more snug than my Epiphone SG case.

SG case for my Tele.

My oldest LP case that survived travel, the other LP cases are cushier inside and fit the contour a little better, but this one protects my Blueshawk's Tremolo the best.

Same old LP case for beating around.

My Strat case for my  Ibanez....

Most of my cases are used for unrelated guitars

You guys got work to do. There are not enough stickers on those case. Which is what cases are for other than storing your guitar.

I had a post that simply said "Dino".  I didn't think a soul would know what I was talking about.  Man I laughed at this one.

All good responses this is actually kind of an antique Explorer case from the mid 60's that I found on eBay, But my Frankensplorer loves it.

Here's a surprising one. Hagstrom. Chinese made (so is the guitar). The case, like Hagstrom branded components on the guitar (pickups, tuners), are surprisingly good.  Its one of the few that I could stand on. I weigh 11.5 stone (161lbs).

True. Some of them are good and they're all easier to store. I use two MIJ bags to hang guitars in a wardrobe (closet). The PRS ones are good, but I still don't like them. I'm selling a PRS right now & it'll be good to see the back of that scribbly black bag.

I suppose I'm old school. Even the shltty old Stagg case (that's unfit for purpose), became usable once I filled it with shaped foam board. Its a bit of a jigsaw puzzle, but you know, in a pinch...
