"This was the last guitar case I built. $20 or less to build, if you don't mind the weight, it is fun to build you're own.  I also made one out of Styrofoam, cost $15 just for the duct tape."

"Cause, that maybe true, but did you make it? The fact that it's custom made with your own hands makes them priceless for some people."

"Aren't you in the U.K.? That would definitely make them costly. Nice looking case though. What's the price tag on it?"

"For the cost I can buy a used guitar case. I look for ones without formed interiors. By the time I figure in the cost of latches, hinges and the wood it's only slightly cheaper than what I can pick up a used one for. "

"Big 5 sells those, as does Walmart, but beware, some are flimsy, I have used a few good rifle cases, but those could be pricey? also make sure you’re using a dense foam, that soft egg carton stuff won’t do much in the way of an impact,…"
