Since some of my guitars travel thousands of miles, I take care to use lots of packing materials, protect the neck inside the case, and of course de-tune the strings.The hardware works (although the locking latch doesn’t catch), but the exterior has a few dings and bruises.It is very difficult to find a hard shell case which fits the smaller lower bout of the F-25; the guitar fits this case almost perfectly, and it offers this classic instrument great protection while looking very authentic and cool.Amazingly, the trademark white pick guards seem to still have their original plastic coverings on them, which I have left in place for the next owner to peel off (or not).However, the back lower bout has about a 4” section which has a very funky finish, probably indicating a major repair.
