    You are much better off buying the case for protection reasons alone. Sell which one you rather not keep later to make back some of the money spent. It's worth it. You're asking for problems if you ship without a case over any borders.

    im calculating the hardcase is $159 in our money its P8000 pesos, the price of what im planning to buy is P74000 philippines pesos = $1462 us dollars, the solar guitar when shipped is $1200 = P60000 pesos plus taxes without hardcase, P68000 plus taxes with hardcase, if the duties and taxes are $100 then maybe your right

    im just thinking of the gig bag where the solar guitar will have, need a tough gig bag this is the first time i will have evertune guitar so i want to be right and careful

    Even if Solar offers a return policy or gig bag etc. you should still get the hard case, because if then if there's a problem you'd lose out on shipping costs or something. If you want a good experience and to take every precaution to keep the guitar safe it really is the best way to do it. I've had guitars get damaged shipping only couple states over and they were still in the hard case even.

    You can afford the guitar but not a case? Are you spending every cent you have?

    If you can't afford the case, you prolly can't afford the guitar. If your budget is that tight you should look into something else or keep saving until you can pull the trigger comfortably if you're set on Solar. They aren't going anywhere.
    Just my 2 cents, but we're adults here, you do you

    if i order directly it will pass through the customs and airport personnel here, there are many horror stories about shipping accidents and airport incompentency here in the philippines

    Where are you ordering, from Thomann? It will probably pass either way, and you have to pay custom fees and your country's value added tax in top of price of a guitar.

    I'm sure your seller will go through the same process.
