This isn't really a technical question about a guitar but;

I just got a new guitar shipped to me, it's here in the hard case.

But I can't open it. It's a fender strat in the fender hard case, anyone ever had theirs jam before?

I even have a key from my other hard case (epiphone hollow body guitar) but it won't open.

I want to play it

Any ideas to get into the case (without damaging it)

Use that strength and bust that shit open. Seriously, it's not that hard to pop the lock on fender cases.

are the... hooking things not coming up? you know, the things around the edge of the case that keep it locked? well, go around the case trying to find the one that is still shut. if all of them are open, and it STILL won't work, then you have to pry it i would assume; but be very careful as to not harm the guitar. but make sure you didn't leave any of the things around the case shut still!

Maybe get a credit card or something else thin but strong and try an go around the edges and see if there is anything stopping it form opening

That was a really bad suggestion; I just wanted to tell you that the 'edited' bit on your sig is rather fail, partly because it is in the wrong font, but mostly because you've spelt tomorrow wrong.

Rape your neighbour, then you go to a guitar store or a store where they fix things and ask if they can open it for you.
I just need about $3.50

Use a butter knife and jimmy it open. Possibly a ball peen hammer to tap the knife in further for more leverage.
#21
Try pushing the locks with the little keyhole (shown in the second picture) off to the left or right, thats how mine opens.

Woah...deja vu

I don't know if it was on UG, but I swear I've read about this exact problem-same case, same guitar-on some forum.
