    Those are some might fine looking cases! I hear they are the best. I guess the only thing you have to worry about is someone stealing your case since they look so cool.

    Wow, really nice cases! ((And they cost more than my first three cars combined---my yardstick for expensiveness--LOL)).

    Geez, that felt like The Devil Wears Prada film.
    That said Calton is the Prada of Guitar Cases.

    I've seen Caltons in the flesh, and they're exceedingly well-built. That said, I'm pretty sure most of you will nope it right on out of here on seeing the price of entry.

    Not only that. They cost more than I've ever paid for a guitar.

    Yes true that! Probably the only time you have to worry about stealing your empty case and leaving the guitar behind.

    What @radiocaster said is true for me as well. About a grand or so is the most I've ever paid for a guitar. In nearly 67 years of life, I've traveled via commercial airlines with a guitar exactly three times. Twice it was in the baggage compartment, and once another guitar was carried onboard and stowed in the overhead. I have no plans to fly with a guitar ever again.

    I do have one guitar that I paid $600 for back in 1983, that an online inflation calculator says is well over $1,500 in today's money. But I actually bought the guitar with money given to me by a group of friends, for the expressed purpose of getting a new guitar to replace one that was accidentally destroyed. One couple in that group of friends is my best friend and his wife. Their guitar playing son strummed his first chords ever on that gift guitar. It was my only guitar from 1983 until the year 2000, and it's still the single most important guitar in my modest collection.

    So I get it. Not because of the monetary value of the instrument, though if I paid 7-10 grand on a guitar, I'd want the best case out there. But more so because of the sentiment of an old guitar that's been with me for 37 years, I'd want the best case out there if I were to travel with it very much. (As of late, it rarely leaves the house.)
