Contestant number one is the ProRockGear Artist Series Rectangular Electric Guitar Case. Pro Rock Gear is a relatively new outfit who have been founded by some music industry veterans, experienced roadies and music gear and accessory junkies. They specialize in hardshell cases and gig bags, robust thermoplastic multi unit rack cases, anodized steel stands and a whole host of other accessories specific to guitar and microphone requirements.
Now we will have look at an alternative, the SKB Jaguar/Jazzmaster Type Shaped Hardshell Case. SKB is a well-established name in the guitar case industry. They were founded in 1977 by Dave Sanderson and Steve Kottman and believe it or not actually manufactured their first case out of a garage in California. When they first started their only client, albeit a highly impressive one was Fender, giving them a stamp of approval and quality that many of their competitors are no doubt envious of.
They have an extensive range of cases covering acoustic, electric, bass, drums and even banjo’s, mandolins and ukuleles - find your next instrument here. In terms of electric guitar cases, their offering is impressive. As well as a superbly stocked standard range they also carry 335, Les Paul and Flying V products. The latter being a very pleasant surprise, especially for a relatively new company still finding its feet.
As a company, they have adapted throughout the years and not only operate in musical instrument cases and gig bags but also in cases for the telecommunications and sports industries.

|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
|All in all a good product. This is not a case that will blow you away with the latest and greatest features. What this is, is a solid bit of gear that should do exactly as it says it does for a reasonable price.||Quite simply, if you have a Jaguar or Jazzmaster then you should probably get yourself one of these. Really nothing else will come close to the level of quality or protection for your specific requirements.|
