Sherlock Oms here again along with my faithful and loyal assistant Wattage. Today I hereby proclaim that Fender's new TSA approved HSC is TOO BIG and TOO HEAVY!

I compared the new version to the previous TSA case and the new case suffers from acute "Big Honkingness," both weight and width.

It's a nice case, if you're not dragging it around. The only thing heavier is the PRS case for my McCarty.

Ugh!

You should try that aluminum case Gibson was issuing with their LPs and SGs for a stretch.

The thing looked like the capsule they launched Spock's carcass in. Probably just as heavy too.

Sorry gents, but Gibson had everybody beat back in the early eighties.


Big, heavy, clunky, but also...

annoyingly uncomfortable to carry

They must secretly hate guitarists and bass players . . . or they're in league with some cult comprised of back surgeons. (;oD

That chainsaw case is actually light and ...ergonomic by comparison to the photon torpedo cases.

I have two torpedoes, and well, I can surf the magma wave when the caldera lights up here.

They are VERY nice cases, though - and do their job. They just need wheels.
