If you are talking about the Lifton the answer is NO! They appear to be made more for studio storage than gigging. I have special cases and gig bags for gigging.I’d love to see one of these new Protector cases in person. I have two of the old protector cases. The Red lined case (Gen 2?) has 3 plastic latches, is a much sleeker shape and has a nice squishy handle which makes a difference when you’re walking for a bit. I used this case through high school and college and took it to many gigs. Was missing one plastic latch when I got it, but still held together just fine with two.
The Blue lined case (Gen 3) is bigger and boxier and has a hard plastic handle, but has metal latches. I use this whenever I have to transport my R8, or 72 Deluxe. Its okay… big, boxy, heavy. But heavy duty protection.
The Lifton style case that came with my R8 sits in a box in the attic and never gets used (does anyone actually use their case?).
