Stuck out of town on a long trip for work, I indulged myself and bought a Baby Taylor. But Guitar Megastore didn't have a hardshell case, and I was doubtful about trying to get it home as carry-on. But Amazon's 1-day shipping (since I'm a Prime member, it was only 3.99) came to the rescue. As for the case, it's great -- tight fit and extremely sturdy. I trust this one more than the hardshell case that came with my Martin. Slackened the strings, got the airline counter person to slap a couple of "Fragile" stickers on it, then held my breath. When I got home, it looked like it hadn't been touched, and everything was perfect. Now I want to see what SKB cases might be available for my other guitars.

If you own a Baby Taylor guitar or a Alvarez MSD1 like I do, then you must realize how difficult it is to find a hard shell case for your guitar. This SKB case is superb and very difficult to find. This guitar case is not a card board case. If you value your guitars then this a requirement for you to have. This my second SKB case. I purchased an SBK case for my 3/4 folk guitar. This case is also difficult to find. You will not be disappointed in either of these cases if you can find one to buy. The amazon merchant I bought this from was great and notified me of every step of the process. I had the case within seven days. Great case and great merchant.

Such a good case and fits the martin LX1e perfectly. Seems to be very strong and would withstand a good beating. Recommend this to every baby taylor/little martin owner that wants to travel their guitar round!

This case fits my Baby Taylor perfectly. After getting this, I'm ashamed of myself for carrying it around in a gig bag for 10 years. I should have bought one of these long ago.

It's super high quality and looks really nice. If you have a Baby Taylor, you need one of these. It's really that simple.

I own an Ibanez Daytripper, a very nice guitar in the "3/4" or "traveling" guitar size, and almost exactly the same size as the Baby Taylor or the Martin LX. My Daytripper came with only a padded gig bag, and I wanted something more substantial to prevent damage during storage and transport. The SKB delivers protection in abundance. Constructed of a firm polycarbonate shell, filled with expanded foam (such as used in bicycle helmets), and lined with soft plush "teddy bear fur", the 1SKB-300 promises to extend the life of it's contents many times over. The top and bottom halves have a sturdy aluminum band running around the edge, and these bands have a "tongue and groove" profile which locks together when the case closes, further enhancing rigidity.
Three sturdy, locking metal latches make sure the case stays closed when carrying, and a small lined compartment inside allows carrying picks, tuning devices, and/or straps safely without them touching the guitar and possibly damaging it's finish. There are also some thoughtful details such as molded in "bumpers" to protect one of the latches on the lower portion of the case, and "feet" upon which the case can rest when opened. Latches, hinges and a sturdy, comfortable handle are all riveted on nicely.
There aren't a lot of hard shell case options for 3/4 size guitars, and most of what is available doesn't seem to provide the protection of this case. I went to a major, nationwide guitar store which had many, many cases in stock, but they had nothing in 3/4 size. I saw this on Amazon, and researched the dimensions of the Baby Taylor and Martin LX to determine if the case would also work for my Daytripper. As it turns out, the fit is perfect, and SKB should advertise this case as also fitting the Daytripper.

I Received the case in a timely manner, case is great Both guitars fit snully into the case. I have a Baby Tayor as well as a Martin LX. This case will serve me well when I need to take one of them with me, The soft cases are OK but not as good as a Hard Shell Cases. Don't be afraid to buy this case.

This case was ordered for a 1920s Regal tenor parlor-sized guitar. I did a lot of searching around for a hardshell case for this instrument, but didn't find anything just right (it is very small!). I was finally able to get some dimensions for this one through the SKB website and decided to buy this case even though I knew it might be a little large. For the benefit of others who have vintage parlor guitars, here is some info. Interior length of the case is about 34 1/2 inches. Upper bout is around 9 1/2 inches. Lower bout is around 12 1/2 inches. My guitar fits inside the case with a little over an inch of space all the way around the body. I will put a couple of pieces of foam in the case to fill that gap. There was a problem with the headstock part of the case - not really the fault of the case. My guitar has banjo type friction tuners (the tuners stick out the back of the head). The headstock and tuners prevented the guitar from resting properly in the case. The solution was to use a sharp knife to cut the plush fabric away from the case up where the neck rest is located. I then removed the rigid styrofoam stuff until the guitar fit comfortably inside the case. Tomorrow, I will reglue the fabric onto the remaining styrofoam. Anyhow, all that to say that it was possible to modify the case to fit my old Regal, so other vintage parlor guitar owners may find that this case will work for them too.

As for the quality of the case -- the exterior seems durable. I read some comments about this case being difficult to close properly. It is a little weird - the case edges have to be in just the right position to meet before locking the case. If you don't get that right, the case edge could be damaged or you will find it near impossible to latch the case properly.
