Hiscox PRO-II-GS Semi-Acoustic Hard Case, Small, Black/Silver
Pro Hard Case for Small-Bodied Semi-Acoustic Guitars
Unique "Liteflite" Construction
The criteria for the design called for the construction of the very best lightweight cases possible, encompassing the use of the finest modern materials. The result is a range of cases manufactured using a unique composite double moulded construction which gives unparalleled protection for your instrument from a lightweight case.
The construction consists of a moulded, high impact resistant A.B.S. plastic outer shell, bonded directly to an inner moulding manufactured from a unique blend of 'High Tech' cellular foam. This inner moulding is feather light and, being semi-rigid, is designed to soak up impact shocks from the outside world. The unique bonding of the inner moulding to the outer shell gives unbeatable, total structural rigidity which is unmatched by any other case in the world.
ABS (due to it's unique balance of properties), produces mouldings which have strength, toughness and rigidity over a wide temperature range. These characteristics make it first choice for applications throughout manufacturing businesses world-wide - from computer housings to motor car bumpers - and of course, Hiscox cases!
The case lining is complete with a crushed velvet type cloth on the PRO range, and a deep pile fur fabric on the STD range. This is bonded directly onto the shaped foam moulding giving a neatly tailored luxurious feel, perfectly fitted every time.
Extra cushioning is provided by upholstered pads in the PRO range which are factory fitted in key areas. These can also be supplied loose in order that the body cavity may be customised to provide a closer fit for a particular instrument.
The aluminium valance is unique to Hiscox Cases. It's design not only increases the rigidity of the case, but ensures a positive location of lid to base when the two halves are closed. Unlike any other case available on the market, the valance extends deep inside the case behind the plastic shell, into which all the hardware (handles, catches, hinges etc.) is riveted. This method of fixing greatly reduces the possibility of fittings working loose.
With their incredible structural rigidity, all Hiscox 'Liteflite' cases exhibit enormous crush strength (comfortably supporting the weight of a 15st - 90kg person).

My fourth Hiscox case. They are very good, which is why I buy them if I need another case. Not much competition at their level.
All my guitar cases are from Hiscox. A great British manufacturer. However, the first case arrived with a problem, the lid would not stay up making it difficult to withdraw the instrument without trapping my fingers. Only a quick email and a replacement was sent within the week. Great service, many thanks to all.
