hey guys

anyone got any info/pics on the new fender hardcase for this year

i just bought my John Mayer Signature Strat at the guitar shop and i asked if i could have the 2008 Fender Hard Case with it.

i did some extensive searching on google and could only find this picture of the hard case



if anyone has this case (im sure many people do) could you please write to tell me what features it has or take pictures if you could be so generous.

pretty weird how i cant find any info on the case at all.
i know its only a case but apparently its damn good.

thanks guys

Its custom made by SKB and has latches that look like military style. TSA approved lock so they can steal your MIA and replace it with a kitten. Its pretty militaristic looking... just needs a Stark Industries label.

thanks soviet
i juts had a gander at the SKB site and it didnt have any info on the fender case
although it had heaps of info on its other stock cases


I have a SKB freedom that i got with my Schecter, inside is the same. Just metal latches instead of the military looking ones and the body isnt contured with those ridges, you'll see what i mean,,,,,

I have the SKB for my American Standard. Brilliant.

The latches work good, and it's TSA approved so you can take it on a plane or what not.

Even though it is my first hard case, I couldn't imagine anything better.

Outside of Fender case with quicklock latches, GI JOE grip look like it was made by Stark Industries.



Inside: Normal no covers for the bottom pockets.



Outside of the SKB Freedom. No military looking bumps on the case makes it easier to stack though... and does have a lock but I don't think its TSA ready. Size is about the same as Stark Industries Fender case.



Inside: Normal, also no covers for the bottom pockets.

Sorry about the large size.... I have a large monitor and so they looked small on my screen lol. The pics are like twice the size of the default forum width.

Here is another picture lol.
