Road Warriors

FREE FALLIN'

 
This past week I was astonished with the quality of your product and felt the need to tell you guys the story and say thank you!

I had my favorite childhood guitar with me camping and was attacked by a coyote when I found myself blocking its only path of escape, and had to repeatedly hit it with my guitar to get it away from me. This isn’t the remarkable part of the story at all.

When driving home from this experience my father left the tailgate of his pickup truck open on one stop of our trip and my guitar (secured safely in its Road Runner case) fell out of the back, and slid down one of the steepest hills in Toronto, hitting curbs and things on its way down. It was then picked up by a stranger who apparently either hit it or almost hit it with their car, and was dropped off at a police station.

It was improperly logged so it was never actually put into their system when it was checked in so even when I called and asked, they told me they didn’t have it. I finally convinced someone to go physically look in the found property locker for any sign of a guitar. Sure enough after 5 days of being lost and in jail, picked up by a stranger, sliding down an asphalt hill after falling out of a moving truck, and beating up a coyote… the guitar is still in tune and the case only has aesthetic surface scratches!

I’ve had other cases collapse and fail from the slightest accident, but your product has completely saved the life of my most prized possession, and for that I couldn’t be more grateful! Will be going out to purchase Road Runners for all of my other instruments as well, because its just not worth owning anything else. (I have 12 guitars and enough other instruments to outfit multiple bands)

LEAVING ON A JET PLANE

 
I have traveled all over the US and abroad with my acoustic guitar in a RoadRunner case. In 2007, I probably flew 100 times and your case performed like a champ…and I checked the guitar every flight…I never carried it on-board. About two months ago, I was standing at the baggage carousel and when my guitar never showed up, I had a sinking feeling something happened to it.

At that moment, my name was announced over the loudspeaker to come to the baggage claim office at Lamber International Airport in St. Louis, Missouri. I walked in and could see my RoadRunner case completely mangled, like it was run over by a car or something. By the looks of the case, it was a forgone conclusion in my mind that the neck had to be broken but I hadn’t opened the case yet.

You can imagine my surprise, when I did open the case to find the guitar completely intact without a scratch on it! I have attached five photos to show you the damaged case but how the guitar was totally protected from your great product.

Thank you very much for making such an amazing case (at such an affordable price). The airlines confirmed that a baggage truck or something ran over it at another airport during my connection to St. Louis and reimbursed me for the cost of the case.

Needless to say, I went to the music store and bought the exact same case. Ridiculously good deal. Thank you again for the quality product!

APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION

 
Here is our home in South West Oklahoma City after the May 20th storm. The closet my guitars were in was narrowly missed by the red truck…

My Road Runner case was dug out of the rubble in the third photo – and besides a few scratches it came out pretty well. My Les Paul was perfectly fine!

Great case, thanks again!

ON THE ROAD AGAIN

 
Last night I ran over my son’s snare drum with our Dodge Caravan. Not only did I run it over, I dragged it about 400 yards before I realized that the scraping noise was not the rock music blaring from the car stereo.

Fortunately, the drum was packed in one of your RoadRunner drum cases. There wasn’t a scratch on the drum and I think it actually sounds better now, but what do I know, I am a flute player.

The quality of your product is very impressive. I have attached some photos for your amusement and confirmation.
