“Luthier Series Carbon Case” by Leona Cases is the newest high-quality guitar case available on the market. The case, named after the famous “La Leona” guitar by Antonio de Torres, immediately captured our attention with its elegant design that is the outcome of almost 5 years of careful planning using innovative tools.

Our good friend and the producer of this case, Qingchuan Li, shared with us a story that led to the creation of this beautiful product. The whole process started when Qingchuan met with his good friend and great luthier, Gernot Wagner. Gernot asked Qingchuan if he could make a special case for his guitars that would be an ideal fit for his instruments.

Cases produced during the first year focused mostly on improving interior design to meet the requirements expressed by Gernot. At first, the exterior was created with pre-existing moulds. The first cases made by Qingchuan allowed him to finally acquire enough funds to create the ideal design he envisioned. To pursue his dreams, Qingchuan partnered up with Janis Ober, the son of Fritz Ober, a luthier from Munich. Janis studied design in Amsterdam for many years. Their design process was very similar to Mercedes-Benz car factories which they visited in Germany. Just like the designers from Mercedes-Benz, Qingchuan and Janis used clay models, forms, 3D scans and rendering for planning.

It’s taken 5 years to design, but now the product is finally finished. In the photo gallery below you’ll see behind the scenes photos documenting the creation of the case. The first photo presents the very basic concept that Qingchuan and Janis sketched together. It’s remarkable how it led to the creation of the “Luthier Series” Leona Cases.

Today the product is finished and very soon the first cases will arrive at GSI. “Luthier Series” Leona Cases are available in many different colors and can fit guitars of many different sizes. See the photo gallery below highlighting the execution of details in this new case.

  1. Good looking case. Do you have a weight for these? And a wait, (expected delivery date? too? I’m pretty sure I’d want a blue one.

    Cost… is irrelevant when you have a concert instrument, what testing has been done?
    I own several Pegasus and Calton cases, and Concerto Carbon Cases. ALL ROAD WORTHY. None of them cheap. I have a BAM and house to car is great, and so is the weight.
    What weight are we looking at? What options? What color of interior?

    I have a new guitar from one of your luthiers coming…and wouldn’t mind adding one of these. Ready to see the details when you have them.

    At first blush…impressive.

  6. where can i rob a bank to afford one?

  7. Mildnomsed says:
