My only problem with this case is that there's no lid on the internal storage compartment. This seems to be a trend among case manufacturers these days. Most plastic cases have open storage, which is an odd choice to me.
Ease of Use:
The latches work great. Just an excellent design.
Very well made by SKB, seems like you could throw it from the roof and it would be unharmed.
Well, I was trying to get a decent hardshell case for less than $100, but there's not much to be had for less, and most cases are more, if not much more. I'd say it's well worth $99 to protect your baby.
The Wow Factor:
Well, it's pretty f'n cool.
Great case. Balances perfectly. Cradles my JV strat very well. Light weight but sturdy. The big latches are fantastic. It would have a 10 if the compartment had a lid.
