La Défense Hightech 8002XLA Classical Guitar Case
Composite ABS Structure
Requires Special Order
Brushed Aluminium Look Exterior

The BAM La Défense Hightech 8002 XLA hard shell classical guitar travel case is small, stylish with its brushed aluminum exterior look, ultra light (weighs only 6.2 pounds), and strong. Drawing upon its years of experience developing and producing a highly regarded line of Hightech violin and 'cello cases, BAM's Hightech clasical guitar cases offer outstanding shock, compression and thermal protection.

The BAM classical guitar case's high performance three ply composite structure gives it an excellent weight to rigidity ratio. The core of this composite structure, Airex, is a rigid cellular material. Airex provides the case with its high isotherm and mechanical characteristics. As a result of these special material properties, the BAM Hightech case is a particularly rugged, unusually light weight, attractive alternative to other classical guitar cases.

A well thought out, full body perimeter, top and bottom internal padded suspension system provides further overall shock protection: All but the outer edge of a guitar's back floats above and safely away from the case bottom while much of a guitar's soundboard floats below and safely away from the case top. A set of adjustable internal side cushions assures a perfect fit for guitars of various widths and contours.

Each BAM Hightech classical guitar case also comes with: a sturdy neck cradle made of BAM's injected foam, a removable padded accessory pouch which provides secure neck support, a seamless tongue and groove weather gasket, three sturdy soft-touch latches for quick easy opening (each latch may be locked), tough non-skid rubber bumpers,  an unusually comfortable ergonomically correct padded handle, and three D-rings to accommodate the two BAM padded neoprene anti-slip back-pack straps with security hooks which are included with each case.

Fit, finish and hardware are excellent.
