I bought this for a very special Strat part-o-caster I am building. I needed SOMETHING I could fly home with and not cause problems getting it there. From second one I knew THIS case would work! Fits a Strat perfectly! Positive the latches will stay locked no matter what the flight monkeys decide they need to do with it! Not sure why it has no covered strap/pick etc. storage, but pretty sure a clear baggie with my stuff will be fine. AWESOME protection for the price, will have to critique it again after some flights, we'll see! A little concerned about the coverage of just the case, not the contents as well, but then again, not a combat grade case, but close.
