I was originally going to purchase the TSA lock version, but all were out of stock, so I decided to purchase the metal-latch model. When the case arrived, I suppose I expected very heavy-duty metal latches akin to what I know from older guitar cases made in the 70s and 80s, but the latches appear to be lighter gauge folded steel and overall have a medium-duty feel. I do not know if the TSA latches would be 'better' but a part of me wishes that I held out to buy the TSA latch model; with this said the metal latches work well and they are correctly placed to ensure secure closing/latching. I also didn't know what to expect from the Faux-Fur lining; the fur seems to be pretty-good quality where certain tight corners and edges you can see through the fur to the mesh fur backing - not really a bad thing, it's similar to comparing a great wig with a so-so wig; the so-so wig you can sometimes see in some places the mesh backing. The handle is plastic and the hande-mounts are bent-steel, which could've been a bit heavier gauge in my opinion - but work well as is. I also have a Bigsby mounted on my Les Paul which means that I needed to compress some of the internal foam to have it close correctly; this was no-big deal but while doing it, the foam crackled and creaked meaning that some of the glue wasn't fully adhered to the shell - again, none of this is bad per-se, but could be better.
The primary purpose of the case is to protect and transport your beloved guitar and this case does do a great job at that overall. The exterior shell material is durable, stiff and attractive. It is very nicely proportioned and shaped, having a very slim, svelte appearance for a hard case, with appropriately placed 'feet' and hardware. The shoulder-straps and shoulder-strap hardware is very good quality, and really makes this case unique. Carrying a hard shell case on your back seems like it would be horrible, yet these straps and this case are actually quite comfortable and very secure - this is a huge positive for this product. Minus the minimal foam-compression that I needed to do for the Bigsby, the fit inside the case is impeccable and very secure; the neck is fully supported while the headstock and tuning machines have airspace and float safely. There is a small compartment (about 4in x 6in x 2inD) under the neck that can fit a set of strings, a tuner and that's about it. The case is so snug that it will not fit a strap on the instrument and actually my strap does not even fit in the compartment, but I consider this a very good attribute, since I wanted a secure and minimal case (the more storage I have in a case the more I fill it up and the heavier it becomes, so less is more in my opinion).
Overall I am very satisfied with this case, some details could be better, but for this price it prioritizes a secure fit, a stiff attractive shell, and excellent shoulder-straps.
The carton it shipped in looked like it had gone through a gauntlet of the worst postal handlers -- huge chunks of cardboard missing and crushed corners and sides, but the actual case inside was okay. When I unwrapped the case I noticed the color was very nearly black instead of the blue color that is listed. Not that the color really mattered, but I would have opted for the black case if it hadn't been 50 dollars more, so this was actually a pleasant surprise.
When we placed the guitar inside, even my hard-to-impress 15 year old son commented It was like this case was designed for the Taylor-- right down to the opening for the electric pickup controls (see photo) on the guitar's body. He's right--it was a great fit after we added only about a half inch of padding to the bottom. Just enough room inside and the first time it falls over with the guitar in it, it will have paid for itself seven times over!
BTW... this case is built very well. It has an arched top (not found on the vinyl and wood cases) which adds strength and will prevent it from being crushed down into the face of the instrument. It has four "Indexing" latches on the front and bottom with a fifth latch on the back side -- something that many higher priced cases lack. Another nice feature is that it stays open when you raise the lid and does not tip over backward as you take out the guitar. That may not sound too impressive, but if you have ever had a guitar case lid swing shut or the case suddenly flip up as you are taking a guitar out (ouch!!!-the dreaded "latches scratches" on your hand and/or the guitar!!!), you will really appreciate a well behaved case! In all, it looks like this case should clearly stand up to some rough handling. maybe not "airline" weekly travel, but certainly any trip in the back of the van to and from lessons and jam sessions travel.
There are practically zero reason's not to love this case so far. I couldn't be happier with this decision to purchase and would buy it again. In fact, I might even buy one to keep my 1960's Daimaru Acoustic Gibson knock-off in, but the case might be worth more than the guitar!!!!
They are essentially identical, but without TSA locks. Since the TSA locks weren't my highest priority, I'm not going thru the headache of repackaging and returning the thing! I would note that I paid less than half the current sale price for this case over holidays and had I not, I would certainly be returning it for the correct case.
I bought this subsequent to the Crossrock case and its a much superior case for about the same price. Superior CD-2530 Deluxe Hardshell 5 String Resonator Banjo Case
