I bought this case for my Yamaha p120s. As the specified dimensions of the SV-1 (88) is reported as more than the p120 I thought it would fit easily but it was tighter than I bought this case for my Yamaha p120s. As the specified dimensions of the SV-1 (88) is reported as more than the P120 I thought it would fit easily but it was tighter than I expected. I think it has to do with the difference in the corners. The SV-1 is more rounded at the ends than the Yamaha and so getting the corners in took a bit of effort. It does fit and as I use it it gets easier to get in and out but the first time it took a bit of effort. I was concerned that it would cause strain on the zips but this has proved not to be the case. The zips are of strong construction as is the case on the whole.
The build quality is excellent it is well padded and double sewn. The are carry handles on the side and a spring retractable handle on the end for wheeling it along (see Pic 4 below ). This feels good quality but if I were to nit-pick it could have done with a bit more padding.
There is plenty of pockets. A large pocket on the back is meant for the SV-1 stand but is not big enough to accommodate a standard x-stand. However, I use it for practically everything else: cables, sheet music, accordian divider organiser, laptop, pedals, music stand, and still has plenty room for more. That is before I get to the front pocket which is smaller (Seen Below with A4 sheet and Aliens DVD Boxset inside) but can be used for more delicate items.
I bought this item blind because there is very little on it on the net but my reasoning was it has the right dimensions (P120 same as P140 P155). Considering it was advertised as a case designed for a £1500 keyboard it should have a reasonable build quality, and because of the abundance of storage. Well in short I was not disappointed. This is a great case and I have no problem recommending it to you.
