Up for consideration is a brand new Ameritage 10-String / 8-String classical guitar hardshell case. This guitar is from the Ameritage Silver Series, which features a ultra-sturdy 6-ply hardwood shell, with black trim, brass hardware, and a compression-fit suspension system to offer maximum protection for your concert instrument. It is very difficult to find high-end custom cases for multi-string guitars, and here for the very first time is a model specifically made for the concert 10-string guitar.

This is a superb, high-end 10-string guitar case, and might well be the only such case in standard production that you can order right now, without having to place an expensive one-off custom case order!!!
This case was designed by Alex, Ameritage's design / production magager, at the 2006 Summer NAMM show in Austin, TX. The photos below show Alex measuring my 1984 Ramirez 1a De Camera 10-String guitar. The second to last photo partially shows the original Ramirez case, which was a flimsy case, and a terrible match for a fine concert instrument.
The case has an interior length of 42" and this should fit practically every 10-string model, like the 1972 Kohno 15 in the photo, it is best to measure your guitar to make sure it is not longer than 42". The neck braces are sculpted to fit the 10-string neck with, but the 8-string will fit in this case perfectly as well.

* Silver Series
* 6-Ply Hardwood Shell

In short, this case represents one of the best cases on the market today for high-end concert instruments, but it does not come with a high-end price tag. It protects the guitar from handling associated with travel, and it seals the guitar in an enveronment that is protected from swings in temperature and humidity.
My website Cathedral Guitar has a lot of info on multi-string guitars; I also run an internet radio station on multi-string guitars and lutes 10-String Radio; and also I moderate a 265-member 10-String Yahoo Group on the subject, and am working on an instructional website, 10-string.com. Perf De Castro has a YouTube Multi-String Guitar channel on the instrument. James R. Smith has an excellent intoductory article to the world of multi-strings, here.
