It goes without saying that looking after your guitar is the key to its long and happy life. Finding the right case is a must, but it’s worth thinking about what you need to get the most out of what you’re buying. Here are our tips.
1. Shop Around
Take the time to find a good case. If you look at the market, there’s a lot to choose from, both online and in stores. And if you do your research, you may just end up with a genuinely good deal. Don’t rush the search for the perfect bit of kit.
You get what you pay for. No truer statement has been made when it comes to buying a guitar case. Yes, the cheap ones are out there, but you’ll want something that can go the distance. After all, in the long run you’ll only have to spend more money to keep replacing something that’s flimsy and prone to breakage. Invest in a good case.
3. Check the specs.
You’ve got your eye on the perfect case. You can see yourself with it. You’ve gotta have it. But first… make sure your guitar actually fits. Staff in guitar stores should be happy to help you figure this one out, or if you’re buying online, check the case’s specifications so you know it measures up. We like to include dimensions for you on our website – but if you have something unique you can reach out to our reps.
4. Get a warranty
Any manufacturer worth their salt offers a decent warranty with their gear. Always ask so you know how long the warranty lasts for. You don’t want to be stuck with a piece of gear that’s flawed or imperfect. Check out our warranty here.
5. Extra compartments
It’s rare that you’ll be taking a guitar with you and nothing else. A decent case should always have a few extra slots or compartments so you can fit straps, leads, picks, pedals or whatever else you need, like our M80 single electric guitar case. It’s built to provide you with the ultimate capacity.
Treat your guitar well, and it’ll do the same for you.
