My last guitar was £240, one before was 136.
I have 4 guitars.
I would spend up to £50, as I don't take my guitar anywhere much.
Yes.
Quality.
A lock, internal compartment for accessories, fluffy interior and rigid construction.
Most are rectangular shaped and are too big.

$50-100, but I think my last one (an SKB) was about $120.
Just about. There's a little wiggle room since they're made to accommodate jazz basses too. (Yes, it's a bass case.)
Quality. There's not much variety in looks, so...
Lots of room for accessories without compromising thickness, and dohickys to keep the lid from falling down when open.
See above, weight on occasion, but I know it (hopefully) keeps my axes safe, so I deal with it.
I pride myself on my humility.

On average how much do you spend on a guitar?
About $300-$400

How many guitars do you own ?
Two

How much would you spend on a guitar hard case?
Not more than $100, I have one that was free with the guitar

Does your guitar case fit your guitar/s perfectly?
Yeah, its shaped for a Warlock, but a strat body will fit

Do you prefer looks or quality on a guitar case?
Someone painted a pentagram on my hard case, so I love the way it looks, but quality is a no-brainer, I don't want the case to come undone or break while I'm carrying it or driving somewhere.

What features would you like on a guitar case?
I love the fur/fuzz stuff inside the case, lets me know that my guitar won't get dinged or scratched. I also like the storage compartment, the more things I can shove in there, the better - picks, strap, tuner, whammy, extra strings, my wallet?, girls phone numbers, maybe a small pedal, cables..

What do you dislike about guitar cases?
Personally I dislike bulky handles, maybe something soft but still durable?

LOTS OF MONEY D: >NZ$1000
Only one, but in the house there are 7ish
NZ$300? Never bought a hardcase before...
Well, it's an Ashton... so sort of.
QUALITY! After years of losing zips off Ashton softcases I think it's time for some quality. And you don't take your case on stage.
A handle, and proper zips. Or clasps if it's a hardcase.
Nothing

I think it's time we blow this scene

$200 for my starter set (starter amp, etc included) and $650 for my new one. Take the set how you will.
2
No more than $100. Most likely $50-$80.
It fit's one of them, but the other is a V so it doesn't fit in most cases anyways, so I just use the gigbag that came with it.
Quality. I'm going to be a lot more pissed if my $650 guitar gets wrecked than I would if my <$100 case looks crappy. Not that it's hard to find a decent looking case.
Sturdy, well padded, a lock, and some extra storage space. My current one has a compartment under the guitar's neck that's perfect.
Not much. The way they smell like glue when you first get them?

plenty of places to hold things
handles are poorly designed/cases uncomfortable to carry for extended periods.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

> Pretty much, but it's just a gig bag atm.
> Both, I don't see why I should have to sacrifice one for the other.
> Moar ponies, perhaps a built-in 1 watt battery/solar-powered amp and speaker for the dedicated busker.
> Um, not much really. They're pretty simple products.
