Hiscox Case LiteFlite Artist Maximum Heavy Duty Acoustic Guitar Case

The Hiscox Case LiteFlite Artist Maximum Heavy Duty Guitar cases are beautifully styled and incredibly rugged with padded crushed velour interior and integrated accessory compartment. The instrument sits on strategically placed foam cushions to create the ultimate in lightweight protection.

 

Unique “Liteflite” Construction

The construction consists of a moulded, high impact resistant A.B.S. plastic outer shell, bonded directly to an inner moulding manufactured from a unique blend of ‘High Tech’ cellular foam. This inner moulding is feather light and, being semi-rigid, is designed to soak up impact shocks from the outside world. The UNIQUE bonding of the inner moulding to the outer shell gives unbeatable, total structural rigidity which is UNMATCHED BY ANY OTHER CASE IN THE WORLD.

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, (A.B.S.) due to it’s unique balance of properties, produces mouldings which have strength, toughness and rigidity over a wide temperature range. These characteristics make it first choice for applications throughout manufacturing businesses world-wide, from computer housings to motor car bumpers and of course, Hiscox Cases!

The Hiscox Case LiteFlite Artist lining is completed with a crushed velvet type fabric of different grades depending on case type. This is bonded directly onto the shaped foam moulding giving a neatly tailored luxurious feel, perfectly fitted every time. Extra cushioning is provided by upholstered pads in both this Artist range and the Pro ranges which are factory fitted in key areas. These can also be supplied loose in order that the body cavity may be customised to provide a closer fit for a particular instrument.

The aluminium valance is unique to Hiscox Cases. It’s design not only increases the rigidity of the case, but ensures a positive location of lid to base when the two halves are closed. Unlike any other case available on the market, the valance extends deep inside the case behind the plastic shell, into which all the hardware (handles, catches, hinges etc.) is riveted. This method of fixing greatly reduces the possibility of fittings working loose. With their incredible structural rigidity, all Hiscox ‘Liteflite’ cases exhibit enormous crush strength – even our standard case range have has been tested to over 500kg (five fully grown people).

More About Hiscox Cases

Established in 1985, Hiscox Cases Ltd. is the brainchild of Brynn Hiscox, a professional guitar maker. Being acutely aware of the lack of quality cases on the market, he used his engineering background to design a case that stood up to his exacting requirements. Brynn’s customers demanded cases that had higher protection but with less weight. And so the Hiscox family of instrument cases was born. Utilizing a proprietary polyurethane injection molding system, superior shell materials, and best-in-class hardware, Hiscox cases provide the best thermal protection, crush resistance and puncture resistance of any case in its weight or price range.
