Everyone knows that flying with a guitar sucks, to be frank, but with this case and a little help I think I've found a way to fly with my ES-335 and feel safe. I bought this guitar purely as a flight case, not for regular use (I only use backpack cases). The outside is pretty stiff. If you push near the body of the guitar the case definitely bends inward, which is not ideal, but towards the headstock where it slims down it's very sturdy. The padding on the inside is MINIMAL. That's the biggest reason for the 3/5 star rating. It kinda baffles me that no one out there has made an AFFORDABLE flight case that's heavily padded. Everyone focuses on the intense steel-like exterior but seems to overlook the necessity of a good foam padding inside! For hollow bodies and I believe acoustics Calton cases are perfect...but you're looking at almost $1000.
However, I do plan on keeping and using this case with the help of good ol' bubble wrap. First off, I use this with a 2012 Gibson...
I recently bought this case to take a new Luna trinity Dreadnought home from Austin to Dayton Ohio. I tried another case and the fit for the dreadnought was terrible. While it had TSA approved locks, the guitar rattled around in the case. I was afraid it would not travel well through the airlines. I took that case back and bought this case from Amazon. They shipped it overnight to my temporary Austin home and it fit great. In fact the fit was so perfect you would think the case was made specifically for that guitar. Nice snug fit but not too tight. Good storage area for capo, strings etc and a plush interior. I have a few complaints. It did get scuffed up a lot in the transportation. It has an aluminum black finish around the case that took a few really good hits on the loading ramp apparently. While not the cases fault,it now looks well used after it's maiden voyage on the airlines. The good news is the guitar survived with no issues. My other complaint is the storage area was too...
I bought this case for my Gibson ES-335.
I wish I could review this product on several levels. On build quality I give it 5 stars.
On fit, not so much. The cavity that the body of the guitar sits in, is too deep. It's built to hold a guitar with a body that's about an inch thicker than my Gibson. This being the case the neck of the guitar does not rest on both supports and therefore I worry about the affect of this over time.
The rest of the fit is fine.
I decided to keep the case however and resolve the fit issue by placing a folded towel under the body.
