You got me interested until I saw the $500+ pricetag.

Gil,

I bought a Super Light Classical Case about six months ago from the big river website....the price was $200 plus freight. It seems the only third-party sellers offering the cases on the big river website are located in Japan. My seller was located in California. The one I had was the best soft case I've ever owned, but they're not worth $600 in my humble opinion. They were an excellent value at $200.

Rokkoman Super Light classical guitar case (advertised 4.6 lbs weight) is now $399 shipped on Amazon. I just found on Amazon another lightweight case (around 5 lbs) for $79 shipped (Prime). Search "ProRockGear RG330FC Armourguard Light Weight Polyfoam Classical Guitar Case" and you'll find it. It likely does not have the YKK water proof zipper. But it is a lot cheaper and is only 1/2 lb to 1 lb heavier.

Does anyone have this case and what do you think of it?

Any updates on where to get Superlight in the USA? The major online marketplace currently has two versions, both in the $400+ price range. I found a German supplier online that has them for 230EUR, but that's it.

I'm thinking about ordering another one through Rakuten Global. The order goes through a Japanese website and price is close to $200 (yen converted to dollars), plus shipping. Shipping is the big question mark. The website checkout system is a bit different and wasn't able to establish the shipping cost without placing the order...not quite ready.

Hands down the best guitar case I've ever owned for everyday around town use. I'll keep you posted as I'm probably going to place an order in the next week or two through Rakuten Global.
