I purchased 2 of the Foam Hard cases and am really satisfied with the product. Good quality, absolutely fit for purpose as I was looking for something that would protect the guitars but be light weight as well. Super quick delivery by Artist Guitars and great communication confirming purchase, despatch, delivery etc. All-round great experience

Good quality product, Service can be improved

Good product and speedy reply. The downside experience is that it took nearly 2 weeks for the product to get sent from one AKL address to another AKL address. Clearly something went wrong with the delivery. CS team assumed it was due to Covid delay and asked me to keep waiting (but in reality there was little to no delay on the NZ post side). Finally they followed up with NZ post and got it resolved after I am about to cancel the order.

Great case, light and robust, electric guitar fits perfectly. Great firm to deal with worth bookmarking .

Gig bag/case

Strong and light, I've been using one like this for years, the baggage handlers seem to treat these with more care. Mine's been to Australia and back 10 - 12 times with no damage sustained.

Surprisingly usable

By: on 5 July 2019
My wife will tell you I own w-a-y too many guitars. And being someone who likes to keeps his gear in pristine condition, I have hard cases for each of them. (Never did trust gig bags!) Anyway, I needed another hard case for my latest acquisition (a superb Artist TC59 Telecaster, incidentally), and I came across this budget-priced item. Initially, to me at least, the description "Foam Hard Case" seemed an oxymoron — I had no desire to carry my pride-and-joy around in marshmallow — but positive reviews encouraged me to look closer, and I eventually ordered. Anyway, this case surprised me — yes, it's of foam construction, but it really is a solid build, and I have absolutely no concerns re its ability to protect my guitar. No, I wouldn't entrust it to an airport baggage handler, but then I wouldn't do that with a good guitar anyway. In short, it's lightweight yet surprisingly usable — top marks, AG!

Fantastic case

By: on 22 May 2019
This was a surprise as the case is fantastic. Fits the electric guitar well. Easy to carry and has a sling too. Also an outside pouch for all the music notes. The inside is lined with a velvet like material and holds the guitar snugly. Additionally, the retailer was prompt and the case arrived packed securely in a cardboard box. Recommended +++

Artist EFC701 Economy Foam Hard Case for Electric

By: on 13 March 2019
This case was delivered promptly and was well packed. As an economy product it is very adequate for the task. The quality of zips (being an important component) seems very good. Tags on the zips are large with holes through end for securing bag with a small padlock if so desired. The space for guitar body is ample, perhaps a little on wide side for a typical Strat design so guitar slides around a bit, but being a universal sizing, it's probably not a bad thing to have more room than not enough! I found I could leave the guitar strap attached and pack this in beside the guitar to act as lateral padding. The shell is robust enough and my only thought for improvement would be a slightly softer interior - i.e. more padding. However, this is indeed an economy case! A shoulder strap is supplied and all up, makes for a nice easy carry across one's back. I do like the feel and ease of packing these cases in vehicle without knocking anything around. Value for money - good. Thanks Artist Guitars, CL

Perfect size and weight

By: on 9 November 2018
I purchased this case for my 12yr old son who has an electric guitar and has just started guitar lessons. Not only is it the perfect size, firm and sturdy, it is extremely light weight. Considering my son is only tiny in size, this is great for him to handle and carry on his own. 100% happy with my buy.

Very good case for the weight factor but still protects your guitar. Straps help with spreading the load - comfortably fits many different guitars.*Gerry, Wollongong*

I am throughly satisfied with both the product and the service provided by ARTIST GUITARS. Initially I ordered the wrong case size and after letting Artist know, they promptly sent me return mail pre-paid labels and I posted them back and shortly after the correct cases arrived. Robustly packed and a very nice case for my two Ernie Ball Armada guitars. Well done Raul and the guys. Will definitely buy again from ARTIST GUITARS. Dr Vaughan Coffey

I bought this for one guitar but found it fitted another as well which I never thought I'd find a case for. The inside contours are really versatile and considering it's an economy model it's solidly made and protects the guitar very well.
