Firebird And Explorer Style Guitar Cases


Firebird and Explorer Style Guitar Cases

January 17, 2008

SKB introduced another new distinctively shaped guitar case at the 2008 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, the SKB-63 Firebird/Explorer case was designed to fit “pointy-style” guitars, such as Firebirds (including models with “banjo” style tuners), Explorers, Jackson KellyTM, and Jackson WarriorTM models, etc.

The case features a plush lining to cover the molded EPS foam interior that cradles the guitar and provides neck support. The SKB-63 Firebird/Explorer case has a convenient accessory compartment for carrying extra strings, picks or guitar cables. The recognizably shaped exterior is constructed from a nearly indestructible molded ABS polymer that has been engineered to provide the ultimate protection during transportation of these delicate instruments while on the road.


As with all other SKB Deluxe Guitar cases, these cases include TSA recognized and accepted patented SKB trigger locking latch that enables the user to safely lock the case and still have it inspected by airline security personnel. SKB is the only case manufacturer to include TSA approved locks allowing TSA screeners to unlock cases for security checks. Additional features include a nearly indestructible injection molded rubber-over-molded cushioned carrying handle; injection molded feet and bumper protected valance; and like all SKB cases, the new SKB-63 Firebird/Explorer case is covered by SKB’s acclaimed Million Mile Guaranty™(Lifetime Warranty).
