Hi guys! I bought a fender acoustic guitar yesterday, and it came with a nice hardshell locking case. But, when I put the key in the keyhole and turn, it doesn't lock it!!Is there anyone out there who can help?

Yeah, in my opinion, it's not even worth it. The locks on guitar cases are usually really flimsy pieces of crap, and as you've made a notion, they're hard to tell when it's succesfully locked and when it's not. And, trust me, if someone really wants your guitar, they'll just steal the whole damn case. It's not necessary to lock it if you're worried about the guitars safety as far as the case staying closed goes, those things don't open very easily by accident.
