SKB Revolutionizes Guitar Transport Again!


SKB Revolutionizes Guitar Transport Again!

February 1, 2007

SKB Corporation revolutionized guitar transport 30 years ago with the introduction of the lightweight molded SKB-66 Electric Guitar Rectangular hard case to take the place of the gig bag with the added protection of a plush lining to cover the molded EPS foam interior that cradles the guitar and provides neck support as well as a convenient accessory compartment.



Always striving to improve, SKB’s design engineers have been busy with innovative new design features to add to the guitar case line. The guitar valances have been re-tooled to accommodate SKB’s new patented fiberglass reinforced nylon trigger release latching system with the inclusion of a TSA recognized and accepted locking latch. The TSA lock enables you to lock your case yet still be inspected for airline security.



Another feature is the addition of their new, nearly indestructible injection molded rubber-over-molded cushioned carrying handle and injection molded feet and bumper protected valance. The new latching system, cushioned handles and molded feet have been incorporated into all models of SKB’s signature guitar case line as well as the conveniences and protection that SKB has delivered for 30 years like the full length neck support and accessories compartment. All of SKB’s Deluxe Molded Guitar cases are covered by the SKB Million Mile Guaranty.
