One of the best leather craftsmen in the USA makes Cumberland Cases fine handcrafted leather guitar cases.
As a result of Jeffrey Spoor’s decision in 2011, he decided to stop making guitar cases, but his craftsmanship, and attention to detail are why many guitar players still crave his beautifully crafted guitar cases.
Guitar cases are a trade tool that can easily be overlooked. Many technicians and musicians also make their own cases.
To sum up, we can all agree that cases are indispensable for touring and for performances. If you do not have the right tools and the right expertise, then you are better off not trying to build your own case, since it’s not worth it!
Materials of the highest quality are also required.
You won’t find much help at the local DIY store, unless you want to build a guitar case out of chipboard, as my friend did when I was a kid. The weight is a bit much (but then my friend would say that, wouldn’t he…)!
Our experts are a valuable resource, and you won’t pay an arm and a leg for their advice on this site and elsewhere.
