Hi Guys,

Have any of you ever built a guitar case for your guitars? What did you use to make it? Have you got any pictures?

Cheers,

Russ

Hey Russ - This won't help you but... I famously made a guitar case when I was at school because they wouldn't let me make a guitar...said it was 'too hard'. Been proving them wrong ever since.

The case was not a total success as it weighed almost as much as a BATTLESHIP. By the time I finished carrying it anywhere I was unable to play guitar for about 1/2 hr as my hand was crippled with strain. Oh to be 14 again...I had an even heavier case once but I'll save that for another story...

Measure twice, cut once...

Thankfully not! I use a soft case now that was given to me by someone very special!

I think that unless you are trying to copy a historic case or have built a guitar beyond the wildest dreams of any case maker then you are probably better off just buying a stock Hiscox or similar. Hiscox are pretty good at giving trade discount to makers so if you tell them that you are a 'luthier' then you will probably get a chunk knocked off their usual retail price. It helps if you are buying a couple by the way.

Thanks Darren. I'll have a look at Hiscox.
