What happened to SalemB's case is par for the course with those molded plastic cases - i've owned the Ibanez one and the SKB one. *the same thing happened on both.
Either you can can be super super careful with it, or you cn just expect it will happen and not be too bummed out about it when it happens.
You can be just as sure that at some point, something moderately sharp is going to scrape along the edge of your UV1000 case a rip a little of the vinyl/plastic stuff on the outside.
This is why we have cases folks, in case you didn't know. *Beat the crap out of the cases. *They're much cheaper and easily replaceable than the guitars they carry.
