July 25, 2007 — SKB Corporation has completed the re-design of the SKB-61 SG Type Guitar case to incorporate the new technologies and features that were introduced in January 2007 to their Deluxe Guitar Line. The SKB-61 SG Type Guitar case has a new plush lined, molded interior that will accommodate all Gibson and Epiphone SG Type guitars (except 12 string) as well as the ESP LTD. Viper series guitars (except 12 string).
The new SKB-61 SG Type Guitar case now features SKB’s new patented fiberglass reinforced nylon trigger release latching system with the inclusion of a TSA recognized and accepted locking latch. The TSA lock enables you to lock your case yet still be inspected for airline security. SKB Corporation is the only case manufacturer authorized to use the TSA logo notifying TSA screeners that the latches do not need to be broken for a security check.
Also included is the addition of SKB’s new, nearly indestructible injection molded rubber-over-molded cushioned carrying handle and injection molded feet and bumper protected valance. The new latching system, cushioned handles and molded feet have been incorporated into all models of SKB’s signature guitar case line as well as the conveniences and protection that SKB has delivered for 30 years like the plush lining to cover the molded EPS foam interior that cradles the guitar and provides neck support as well as a convenient accessory compartment.
The SKB-61 SG Type Guitar case is covered by the SKB Million Mile Guaranty and will be shipping in October 2007.
