Hardshell Style Protection In A Guitar Soft Case


Hardshell Style Protection in a Guitar Soft Case

September 15, 2008

These new Guitar Soft Cases offer the protection of the same rigid foam found in our hardshell cases with the style and portability of nylon gig bags. Six new soft case models are being offered, including the two newest case designs: the 1SKB-SC58 for Flying V® Type Guitars and the 1SKB-SC63 for Explorer®/Firebird® Type Guitars.



Unlike conventional, rectangular shaped guitar cases, these soft cases employ distinctive designs (both interior and exterior) that mirror the actual shape of these unique instruments, yielding a smaller footprint while cradling the guitars for added protection. The other four models are the 1SKB-SC300 for Baby Taylor/Martin LX, 1SKB-SCFS6 for Universal Shaped Electric Guitars, 1SKB-SC56 for Les Paul Type Guitars, and 1SKB-SCFB4 for Universal Shaped Electric Basses.



These Guitar Soft Cases are manufactured of a rugged, weather resistant 600 Denier ballistic nylon exterior with a hard-core EPS foam interior to provide more substantial protection than a conventional gig bag at an affordable price. The plush lined interiors also offer full neck support for added protection over a conventional gig bag. All soft case models include two external zippered pouches, one with numerous internal compartments for organized accessory storage, as well as adjustable padded backpack straps for easy transport.



“SKB has been the consistent leader in hard case development, and it only makes sense to offer the same protective innovations of our renowned hard cases with the convenience and benefits of a soft nylon exterior,” stated Steph Maffei, SKB Product Manager. “With an affordable price, a lighter construction and enhanced portability with the padded back pack straps, these cases offer the ultimate in SKB protection for the guitarist on the go.”
