    The ones without a combination lock, all latches.

    Happy about the quality ?

    How do they compare to the ones with the lock ?



    Thanks !!

    I got one of those. It's perfect so far, but It's new and hasn't been kicked around yet. Don't know how it holds up to road abuse.... (I have three Gibbys with different cases, and this is the one I like the most)

    I've bought two of these year, from an eBay seller. The quality seems fine, although I miss the shroud!

    The first had a terribly strong factory odor. I had to air it out for a day, but it's okay now. The second one didn't require an air-out. Both were brand new.

    Other than the latches, they seem like the same case to me.

    I put a deposit on a Non Reverse Firebird last week & the sales guy was excited that the case smelled like cookies & cream. ;)

    I have a couple of them and they all seem to work fine. One has a small puncture hole in the back of it. (Not sure how that happened) If I am really worried, I have on of the SKB waterproof I series flight cases I use

    My LP Premium came in that very case - I much prefer it to my old SG case with the sewed in drop cloth and combo lock, it feels more substantial.

    Also, I can confirm that the cases smell like baked goods. I imagine it's like new car smell - smells great but probably toxic so I wouldn't necessarily be taking deep whiffs of your case.

    My doesnt smell like baked goods, LOL, but its a very nice case. Fits my SG literally like a glove and protected it well during shipping.
