Flew 'checked in' all the way to Costa Rica
yamilhas, 04.05.2017
I flew home (Costa Rica) with my beloved 2013 Gibson Les Paul Signature 'T' and was FORCED to check in my guitar for such flight.
I already had a hard case but did not want to take my chances with my Gibson so I decided to spend my hard earned Euros on this thing.

The thing is HUGE.. its heavy and its robust like nothing I have ever seen before.
The guitar fits inside nothing short from PERFECT in its bed. Mind you, mine has that Force-G tuning system (which is the biggest and clunkiest tuners found on any Gibson) and the most projected part of the tuners stays clear from the bottom of the case by at least 2 cm or more. Meaning, I cannot see how on earth the headstock could possibly touch the case even with the most ill intended and hateful treatment that the airport gorillas provide.

The case arrived in my beloved country safe and sound after 22 hours of flight, 3 airplane changes!!

When I got home I could immediately tell that the airport luggage handling gorillas DID beat the hell out of it as I found some serious scratches and dents on the outside bottom of the case. When I opened the case while sweating cold like a zombie I found the guitar was 100% intact inside!!!

What else do you need to know? Visit Costa Rica with your Les Paul :P

SKB 3i SKB56 Les Paul style/ Single Cut Case
Michael5689, 06.10.2015
If you plan to fly with your guitar, from my experience there simply isn't a better case that these iSeries SKB cases. I fly and travel with my band alot so I needed to find a case that would stand up to it. This particular case is designed to fit Gibson Les Paul style guitars (also fits left handed Les Pauls like my own one) It also fits similar shaped guitars such as theESP/Ltd Eclipse , Yamaha SG, and Ibanez Artist style guitars. There is also plenty of room inside the case for your spare strings, tuner, spare leads etc.
The handles on either side of the case and wheels are very useful when you have to walk long distances with the case as it is quite heavy. The 4 TSA latches are high quality, two of them can be locked if desired for extra security. There are even holes to padlock the case too! These cases are also air tight and water proof! I have done 4 flights so far with the case and it is still perfect apart from the usual scuffs cases recieve when thrown around by baggage handlers at airports.
The iSeries cases are a bit more expensive than the standard SKB cases or other brands cases, but it is well worth paying the extra money for the level of protection these cases offer. I now have total peace of mind when I fly with my vintage Gibson Les Paul knowing there is no chance of it getting damaged from mishandling.
Full marks, well done on a greatly designed case SKB.
