Hiscox: ARTIST D BLACK(Item ID: ARTIST D BLACK)
Travel Case for Dreadnought Guitar - Black Shell with Silver Interior
From the Hiscox website:
"The construction consists of a moulded, high impact resistant A.B.S. plastic outer shell, bonded directly to an inner moulding manufactured from a unique blend of 'High Tech' cellular foam. This inner moulding is feather light and, being semi-rigid, is designed to soak up impact shocks from the outside world. The UNIQUE bonding of the inner moulding to the outer shell gives unbeatable, total structural rigidity which is UNMATCHED BY ANY OTHER CASE IN THE WORLD in our price range.
The case lining is completed with a crushed velvet type fabric of different grades depending on case type. This is bonded directly onto the shaped foam moulding giving a neatly tailored luxurious feel, perfectly fitted every time. Extra cushioning is provided by upholstered pads in the PRO and Artist ranges which are factory fitted in key areas. These can also be supplied loose in order that the body cavity may be customized to provide a closer fit for a particular instrument.
The aluminum valance is unique to Hiscox Cases. It's design not only increases the rigidity of the case, but ensures a positive location of lid to base when the two halves are closed. Unlike any other case available on the market, the valance extends deep inside the case behind the plastic shell, into which all the hardware (handles, catches, hinges etc.) is riveted. This method of fixing greatly reduces the possibility of fittings working loose. With their incredible structural rigidity, all Hiscox 'Liteflite' cases exhibit enormous crush strength - even our standard case range have has been tested to over 500kg (five fully grown people)."
