OK, so my son in law is sorta famous.
 He flies around the world playing shows, and at all the big music festivals etc.
usually he gets his guitars supplied, sometimes he has to take his newer martin D-28.
My daughter bought him a TRIC case- lightweight and wonderful a year ago.

 Apparently he has worn it out.
 now she sends me this link and wants to buy this case. asks my opinion.
 Looks pretty cool, I never heard of it.

 anyone else?

"Senior" member means "old" right?
Like over 50?

Too many guitars to list here.
 Too few brain cells to be bothered with...

I've not seen that one personally, but Reunion Blues makes good stuff. I think my son has one of their very expensive leather cases (which he won in a drawing at a local guitar shop in Omaha - he keeps his SG in it).

It looks like a feather weight hard foam inside gig bag covered.Nice case's light weight pretty sturdy can take some abuse.

I wouldn't use that for an acoustic. Look how flexible those walls are at 1:05 in the video. The high levels of padding might be fine for an electric but I wouldn't even consider traveling with an acoustic in a bag like that.

Indeed - "strategically placed impact panels," don't sound baggage-handler/roadie proof. The direction of impact will always be totally unpredictable, no matter how good a "strategist" you might be.

They look like the liner portion of something tougher -  like a style conscious case for someone who's idea of a road trip includes having the butler arrange the entire back seat of a Cayman for one guitar.

If there's time for research it might be worth looking into a company that makes "road cases" for cello and guitar. If they can build something that protects a cello . . .
