Orange, CA – The Ultimate guitar case line continues with the introduction of the 3i-4217-18 Acoustic Guitar and the 3i-4217-30 Classical Guitar watertight injection molded guitar case. The 3i-4217-18 case will fit any Dreadnought acoustic guitar while the 3i-4217-30 will fit any standard Classical guitar.
SKB 3i Series Injection Molded Mil-Standard Watertight Cases are molded of ultra-high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin, featuring a gasketed, water and dust proof, submersible design (MIL-C-4150J) that is resistant to corrosion and impact damage. The cases include stainless steel molded-in hinges, patented "trigger release" latch system (two with TSA locks), comfortable, snap-down rubber over-molded cushion grip handle, automatic ambient pressure equalization valve (MIL-STD-648C), and in-line skate wheels.
“This solves a major problem in transporting acoustic guitars safely,” states Steph Maffei SKB Product Manager. “These cases can be checked as baggage and provide a level of protection that has never been available before. Because it is waterproof, there will never be condensation on the guitar due to the cold baggage compartment environment. All of this protection in a case that weighs much less than a wood flight case or Fiberglass case, is a perfect combination.”
