ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
SKB's 3i-4217-18 hardshell case offers military-strength protection to your prized dreadnought acoustic guitar. Following in the footsteps of SKB's wildly successful MIL-Spec waterproof 3i cases, this portable guitar vault won't just keep out moisture, it'll keep out a flood! The SKB 3i-4217-18 case is made of ultra high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin and built to last. It shrugs off impact, humidity, and changes in pressure. Built-in wheels and a comfortable, snap-down-rubber over molded-cushion-grip handle also make the SKB 3i-4217-18 dreadnought acoustic guitar case easy to transport.
If you fly often, then you already know how hard air travel can be on your gear. The SKB 3i-4217-18 is the perfect case for protecting your favorite dreadnought acoustic guitar from the hazards of air travel. In addition to being waterproof, the SKB 3i-4217-18 hardshell case is virtually "airproof" too. Its injection molded, high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin shell can shrug off scrapes and bumps like no other hardshell case on the market. What's more, even the best built hardshell guitar case won't travel well, unless it's TSA approved. Fortunately, the SKB 3i-4217-18 also features TSA-approved locking latches so both your guitar and your case will arrive in one piece.
The SKB 3i-4217-18's gasketed, waterproof, and airtight seals allow it to maintain its own independent internal pressure. That means even if you're flying, you don't have to worry about the extreme change in altitude affecting your guitar. In fact, the SKB 3i-4217-18 meets the US military's strict regulations for moisture and pressure resistance, even qualifying as waterproof under full immersion. When all of this adds up to is that your acoustic guitar couldn't be safer than it is in a SKB 3i-4217-18 hardshell dreadnought acoustic guitar case.
What's great about the SKB 3i-4217-18 is that its practical perks aren't all there is to it. In addition to being a truly elegant acoustic guitar case (worthy of even the highest end acoustic guitars), it also offers significant onboard features that make traveling with your guitar comfortable and easy. Built-in wheels allow you to trail the SKB 3i-4217-18 behind you as you rush from the car to the gig, or the terminal to the gate. The SKB 3i-4217-18 also features extremely comfortable handles, whose cushioned grips feature snap down rubber coverings. Cushioned handles may seem like a small bonus, but when you been lugging around a case for hours, you'll sure be glad you have them!
