I went to the big river place and checked them out. The lower end ones look like the generic ABS or wood hard shell cases sold at the place where shred guitar is played much to the dismay of the staff. The lowest priced fiberglass case was over $300. I found it very odd that for each case there was no photo of what it looked like inside. The glass case had multiple photos of the latches.

I agree that their lower end hard shell cases appear to be flimsy.

I have 2 Crossrock CRF1000 cases for my classical guitars. They are priced in the $200-250 range on the big river site. Price varied depending on your color preferences. If you visit reverb, you can find them for less.

FWIW I just checked and there are interior photos of this particular model on the big river site.

I am looking to potentially buy a carbon fiber Crossrock for my Ramirez 1a. I have checked on the dimensions and it seems ok. There have been some years this thread has existed. Anyone out there experience a carbon fiber crossrock?
