Michael says: "On the road with Paul Butterfield and Rick Danko, I carried 5 guitars with me: a 1958 Stratocaster®, 1960 Sunburst Les Paul, 1956 Les Paul Jr., 1963 Firebird, and a 1950 Telecaster®. All 5 guitars traveled in a specially-made Anvil case. It was an extensive tour all over the world, so you can imagine treatment that case withstood from the baggage handlers... the constant pounding of travel on trucks, busses and airplanes. The Anvil case took the punishment and I never had a single problem.

"A few years later, when touring with Albert Hammond’s band, I carried a Precision Bass® in an Anvil case and a Martin D41 in another very expensive brand ATA-approved case (not made by Anvil). That trip was the definition of rough handling! We performed throughout Africa. Even though the two guitars were shipped side-by-side, the Martin's neck was broken. . . . "Need I say more?"


All ANVIL cases are custom-made to order. Although we take Strat® and Tele®-style case orders directly from the website, it is recommended that you call us with your specific requirements (materials including color and laminates). Please see the ANVIL section of our site or email/call in your requests. (All guitar and bass, amp, and gear designs available.) DeTemple Guitars an official ANVIL Case dealer - (818) 782-9933.
