This is my choice for a medium weight, low-priced, all-purpose, ATA-approved. flight-worthy case for harp guitars that are too big for the CaseXtreme.

Designed to accommodate all manner of 76-note keyboards, this molded poly-ethylene case includes 8 detachable Velcro foam panels that are perfect for surrounding a variety of oversize harp guitars. Above shows the common Gibson Style U perfectly fitted; at right is the breakdown of the panel placement I used.

Dimensions (at right) illustrate what will fit inside - remember, unlike the bare-bones CaseXtreme, this is lined with stiff padding already.  Would I count on that alone to protect a maximum size instrument?  Possibly.  The molded plastic shell is harder than the CaseXtreme, but has a bit more flex (i.e.: don't stand on it).

In weight, it's about halfway between the CaseXtreme and an anvil case.  For true shipping dimensions, I would add 2+" to the exterior as given by the manufacturer and an extra 3/4" to the width (for handles, latches and wheels).

Due to its large size, ask about discounts on shipping to your location.
