Default SOLD: Karura dred case (like new) Comparison pix added (Hiscox and Hoffee)

This is a top-of-the-line, carbon fiber Karura flight case in perfect condition...never taken out of my house. The only “issue” is that it is too beautiful to actually USE! While IMO not a case to take your beater to a gig at the local tavern, there is no better case anywhere (and I have/have had them all) to store or display your prized custom, vintage, or cherished dreadnought. More photos available—please email or PM me. These are about $1200 new. Buy this one for $925, including shipping and insurance (CONUS)

REDUCED TO $875 Delivered

A couple of interesting inquiries so far--but this case is still available.

Karura (center) compared to dred cases from Hoffee (bottom) and Hiscox (top). The karura is lighter weight and provides a much slimmer profile than either of these excellent cases. I don’t currently have a Calton dred case—but it probably comes closer to the Karura profile—but weighs CONSIDERALY more.

Great question! I tried it out for the first time tonight--first with a Martin D-35S, and then with a Gibson Jackson Browne Model 1 (the closest i have to a J45). Both fit snugly, but safely. Hope that helps.

If you want some photos of those guitars in the case, send me your email address and i will forward them to you.
