Sturdy case for 6 and 12-string acoustic guitars
Granted, in most cases a simple gig bag is perfectly adequate for transporting a guitar, but sometimes you need a bit more protection. For instance, when the instrument vanishes among boxes and cases inside the tour bus, or if it needs to be stored under optimum protective conditions over a long period of time. The Gator Hardshell Case Dreadnought 6+12 with its extremely durable plywood construction and PVC covering made of humidity-resistant Tolex, is an affordable way to transport and store 6 and 12-string dreadnought acoustic guitars safely.
Custom-built for dreadnoughts
The Gator product range offers a large number of custom-made cases for almost every type of guitar. The Hardshell Case Dreadnought 6+12 was developed specifically for bulky dreadnought-shape guitars and fits instruments of this type perfectly. A sturdy handle has been attached to ensure that the case is perfectly balanced when carried, while the arched lid also provides the best possible protection for the instrument's top. The interior contains a padded and velvety-soft inner lining, providing both a perfect fit and optimum protection from scratches thanks to its soft surface. Moreover, the case contains a storage compartment for important utensils such as strings, picks, or tuners. Thanks to the four metal feet on the bottom edge, the case can be placed upright as well as propped up against a wall.
Affordable case with a hard shell and soft core
The Hardshell Case Dreadnought 6+12 is suitable for all musicians with steel-string guitars who travel a lot and attach great importance to transporting their delicate instruments as safely as possible. Although hardly more expensive than a decent gig bag, this case offers considerably better protection and is the ideal companion when heading to lessons and the rehearsal room as well as for tours and gigs. The sturdy handle facilitates transport in an optimally balanced position, while the velvety-soft inner lining effectively protects the instrument from scratches.
Gator, or Gator Cases, is an American firm founded in 2000 by father-daughter team Jerry Freed and Crystal Morris in Tampa, Florida. Initially, Gator began with a modest range of moulded plastic guitar cases. From there, they expanded the product line to include case and bag solutions for the whole field of instruments and equipment. A wide variety is covered: Instruments, microphones, and all aspects of live performance, including lighting equipment. At the same time, products for other media areas such as photo and video are also available. All products are made of high-quality plastics, wood, textiles, and EVA materials. The Gator companies also include flight case manufacturer Viking Cases and guitar strap manufacturer Levy's Leathers Ltd., as well as Gator Rackworks and Gator Frameworks.
For the gig, the trip to the rehearsal room, or for long-term safe storage
The Hardshell Case Dreadnought 6+12 shows its potential mainly when transport requires a bit of rough handling. The shock-resistant outer shell made of multi-layer plywood with its durable Tolex covering can easily withstand even the hardest of knocks. If, on the other hand, the instrument is to be stored for long periods of time in the cellar or rehearsal room where conditions are not ideal, the case also rises effortlessly to the occasion. In this way, a guitar can be stored for extended periods and well protected from external influences, embedded in soft plush. Naturally, the Hardshell Case Dreadnought 6+12 guitar case is also equipped with a lock to prevent unauthorised access.
