this is the only case i have made , maybe it's a bit OTT for most of you guys ?- it's not what would be classed a simple took forever to make but i was pleased with the end results as was the customer who comissioned it - made from 6mm or marine ply for the top and bott , sides are 18mm marine ply then it was all veneered with Zebra wood - the bottom padding is 100mm Polystryrene coverd in Red crushed velvet - top linling is 50mm medeim density upholstry Foam again coverd in crushed velvet - it also has a large Cigar Box Embedded in the base for a stash box for leads ,tuner, strap ect
Some simple cases I made for the 'Twins'.
8mm ply with some nylon fur inside with some foam under that.
Holds guitars without any movement and the fittings (hinges,handle etc.) didn't cost a lot.
Hope this helps.
I had forgotten about this thread. Hogs- that looks good! I was deciding on how to do a neck rest. I think thin wood that I can cut with a xacto knife might work. That might be easier to handle?? How did you carve that divot? Gary that is a cool amp case you have there. Does it ever rattle itself over from blasting it! Just kidding.
I found an old chemical shipping box in my parents basement that is the perfect size for my bar. uke size git. I do not have a good digital camera anymore so no photos.
