Bam Cases Now Available for Hill Guitars

Bam Guitar case
We have just received new Bam Hightech Cases. These cases answer a frequently asked question, can we recommend any high quality travel cases? Bam cases.

These very light-weight cases are very strong and provide an excellent choice for those looking for a protective case to use for travel. The interior provides an excellent fit for our guitars.

We carry the Tweed and Brushed Chrome models presently.

At this time, these cases are not easy to acquire, and we are offering them to Hill Guitar owners only. Price is $800.

Information from the Bam website:
Using the experience gained from developing the cello cases,
we have conceived this case to be the lightest of the guitar cases, yet
without compromising protection. Looking very stylish, this case is
made of high performance composite materials. Thanks to its sandwich
structure, we obtain an excellent weight to rigidity ratio. The core of
this structure, called Airex, is a rigid cellular material, almost
indestructible, bringing high isothermic and mechanical characteristics.
Inside, the guitar is maintained in suspension. The neck is supported by
a cushion made of bam's injected foam. The case is equipped with
3 soft touch latches, a comfortable handle and a set of two anti-slip
neoprene backpack straps. A removable accessory pouch is located
under the neck.
Weight: 6.2 lbs
