David, I like to.
I can't figure out how to do either one.
I've got the photo archive of CBG's on Photobucket.
All I gotta do is get off my *** an post somethin to the Soundclick site I guess. "D'OH" !!!

Whoa, don't think I could pay $2000 for a guitar case. I like my $100 SKB cases just fine thanks LOL

Haha, same here. But they do look like nice cases, I think $2000 was for the most exspensive one. Funny thing is, if I were to buy one of thier cases I would be more worried about damaging/lossing the case than the guitar inside it LOL

I really hate to have to worry about getting my case scuffed up.

I've got a special Gibson SJ-200 in a really nice case (which would've gone several times over the total of all my other instruments if I'd paid for it, which I didn't) that I am a bit more careful with than the rest. I figure they've all got to get some honest wear in use, though. I don't go along with the idea of buying collectible things and keeping them preserved in the box, new. I've got to play with them!

I'm the same way, but I suppose if I could afford to do so I would. Don't we all secretly dream of having a huge room full of so many rare and exspensive guitars and amps, that we would never have the time to play them all. I know I do.

Reminds me of that Pink Floyd song from the Wall, where the guy and girl walk into the house and the girls says "Wow, are these all your guitars". The name of the song escapes me, but everytime I hear that it, I imagine a huge medevil hall fill with shiney guitars from wall to wall.

OK, so the deal is, When I bought my last guitar it came with a soft shell case. Originally, a custom hard shell case from Martin was to be included. (Martin didn't come through on the deal.) It's a cigar box instrument so it's not shaped like anything but a cigar box guitar. Noth'n else will work. So, I went look'n for a place that would build me a case to fit.
I didn't spend $2000.00, but I did get a nice case. I don't know if there's a comparitive price for a case compared to the cost of the instrument. (a $2000 guitar and a $20 case ? or vice versa) But, when you buy a nice instrument (no matter what kind) you'de think a decent case would be one thing to consider.

Sorry man, I wasn't trying to get on you or your purchase. I just happened to click on one of their pricer cases and made a comment about it. I have no doubt that their cases are worth every penny and are as finely crafted as the custom guitars I lust after. I would love to be able to afford something of thier's when I actually get a real job.


And I completey agree that a fine instrument deserves a fine case to hold it, I own no fine instruments so I have no need for fine cases at the momment LOL

No Offense,
We're all brothers and sisters here and can fight like cats and dogs one day and the next back each other up.
If you could see the guitar I'm talk'n about you'd understand.
I paid enough for the guitar that I want to keep it safe in travel an somehow shove'n it into an old epiphone/LP case just wasn't gonna get it.
