SKB launches Injection Molded Guitar Cases

SKB has launched the first injection molded guitar cases. That's right; it's cases, as in more than one – the 3i-4214-66 for "Strat" and 'Tele" style guitars and the 3i-4214-56 for "LP" style guitars. These two new cases are the latest sizes in SKB's successful 3i series of cases. SKB now has 52 different 3i models in the series and growing! 3i Series injection molded waterproof cases are constructed of ultra high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin and feature a gasketed, waterproof and airtight, submersible design (IP67) that is resistant to corrosion and impact damage.

Its molded-in hinge, patented "trigger release" latch system, comfortable, snap-down rubber over-molded cushion grip handles, secure stacking, and automatic ambient pressure equalization valve (MIL-STD-648C) all contribute to its military grade design. With four (4) SKB patented trigger latches (two with built-in TSA locks), four reinforced padlock locations, lockout handles on three (3) sides and recessed, in-line skate style wheels, transporting your guitar around the world is both worry and trouble free. Meanwhile, your instrument is cradled in a crushed velvet lined EPS interior.

The biggest drawback to any heavy duty flight case, designed for air travel is weight. Traditional flight cases loaded with gear can exceed the 50 lbs weight limit for checked baggage. The 3i-4214-66 Strat/Tele Case and the 3i-4214-56 LP Style case are based on a uni-body design which eliminates the need for excessive metal reinforcing hardware found on traditional flight cases. These cases are under 20 lbs (empty)!

The new guitar cases are covered by SKB's unsurpassed no-fault Million Mile Guaranty™ (Lifetime Warranty).

The 3i-4214-56 and the 3i-4214-66 will be available February 2010 from authorized SKB dealers with estimated street price of $249.99 (US).
