Common Concerns:

How snug should my instrument fit?
Fairly tight, but not forced. An instrument should fit almost tight and be secure around the lower bout area. Your instrument should not move around once the case is closed. Of course, a slightly loose fitting case is better than too tight or none at all!
What brands of cases do you carry?
We carry a few brands, and we're all about the size selection. We sell cases from many different brands and manufacturers, and we are still adding more. Our current selections are primarily from Guardian®, Godin®, Gator®, Superior™, Carion™, Golden Gate™, and we have our own specially made gigbags as well.
Do you make custom sized cases?
No. But we plan on adding a line of boutique cases with custom options in the future.
How much does the padding change the sizing?
This depends on the case. Except for the Length dimensions, all of the measurements listed are for approximate guitar sizes within (+/-) 0.25" (1/4 inch.) We reference the ideal guitar size limit, not the case with a specified amount of squished padding.
Is the waist measurement important?
The waist measurement is the least important. Usually the most important dimensions are the lower bout, the depth, and the body length, in that order. If you have a strangely shaped guitar, or you are concerned about this variable, please contact us with the form on the right.
What if the case I order doesn't fit?
If the case doesn’t fit you can send it back to us in the same box and we'll find you a replacement that fits. Visit our returns page for details.
What is your shipping method?
We currently use UPS Ground Service for most shipments within the United States. We sometimes use FedEx when expediting orders with our distribution partners. We use US Postal Service International when shipping to other countries.
When will my order ship?
Your order will ship within 24 hours from one of three locations in the U.S. Depending on your location and our inventory, we will get your case delivered ASAP and you will be notified with tracking info.
Do you ship internationally?
Our system is not set up to calculate for international shipping rates at this time. Please contact us here and inquire about your location and rates. We will happily process international orders via email.
