I looked for a case specifically for the round Back Ovation. Most places could only get aftermarket types. they didn't have the same padding or interior. The Ovation case also has a convex mold to its top. I believe this feature saved my Guitar when the tire was put on it.
the Guitar fits so tight I cant even leave the strap on it and get the case closed. this leaves no room for the case to flex or crush. it is a very strong case and this has never been a problem. I own a Gibson case also and the Ovation case is stronger.
I would Buy this case again in a heart beat. But I would pitty anyone that stole it. It locks and I wouldn't want to be the one trying to break into it.
It's top Quality protection for something I don't feel I could replace.

A tough case I was worried about the latches and hinges at first because the Guitar fits so tight that I thought the hinges woul get sprung or the latches woul start loosening up. after a year they are still tight and I've shut the case a few time with rags or a strap stucking out. my Guitar gets hauled back and forthe a couple of times a week. once I blow a tire and somebody put the old tire in the trunk on tor of it.it was no problem although I wasn't happy about finding a tire on top of my Guitar. It really isn't that scratched up for as much travel as it sees.
It has alot of styrafoam padding in it so I can put it in my trunk for short trips and the Guitar doesn't got effected by the weather. I left it in the trunk once during the summer for a couple of hours and the Guitar inside didn't even get hot although I cuold bareoy hold the case.
