DFC701 - Perfect Hard Case for Travelling

By: on 4 April 2018
I am REALLY happy with this purchase- both the product and the service from Artist Guitars. The case is very light (about 1.8kg) and fits my Yamaha FG650 guitar perfectly. The protection looks pretty good- with high density foam making up the structure of the case. MUCH lighter than conventional hard cases- my guitar and case together weights 3.7kg total, which makes flying with a weight limit easier and more environmentally friendly. Big thanks to everyone at Artist Guitars for answering my questions and for the fast delivery!

Excellent Value

The Artist DFC701 foam hard case offers you the same foam inner and soft lining of other hard cases but with a soft (but very firmly stretched and studded) gig bag style exterior. This makes it quite lightweight but still strong, keeping your guitar safe from those knocks and bumps while offering gig-bag features like a large external pocket and shoulder straps which can be attached or removed. This is a well made case suitable for general use. Excellent value!

Great value case

I’d been searching for a good value case to travel overseas with. Thought I’d give this a try cause at worst, I could return it. Was very impressed with the customer service and speed of delivery. The case is perfect as it fits my needs for portability and checking in with the luggage. Definitely keeping it and it’s already travelled with me through three airports. Everything inside is intact!

Awesome Case

Artist DFC701 - The sweetest, lightest hardcase fo

By: on 1 September 2017
The Artist DFC701 is a great hard case 40 and 41 inch dreadnoughts whether busking, gigging or just storing at home. I only am doing the storing at home part with it but that doesn't stop me dreaming of busking or gigging.. And when that happy day comes, my trusty DFC701 will be ready for me with its super light weight, shoulder straps and plush interior with compartment for accessories... Really the best a hard case has to offer but a heck of a lot lighter and with the added bones of shoulder straps - It's really comfy too, wears like a backpack and sits well on the back - No having to be careful navigating through doors or corners; a very well built case and all my nice gittys get one!

Very satisfied

this is an excellent product, especially for the price - I have purchased similar for the same price and the quality is not as good - I have also purchased other more expensive big brand foam cases and this Artist case is just as good - recommend this product

The case fit my daughter's Yamaha CPX900 perfectly like the case was custom built for the guitar, light but very good quality for the price and excellent customer service from Jason & Ian for helping me chose the right case, thanks, highly recommended.

This case is very favorably priced and of quite high quality . . I bought it for an archtop guitar I had built, when I delivered the guitar to the new owner he assumed the case had been made for it. Zips are very strong Loads of storage .. for strings leads and a tuner and a generous sized pocket for music on the outside Very happy As always with Artist delivery was fast and hassle free
