The Epiphone Swingster guitar does not fit in this case due to the Bigsby tremolo arm. Even if you swing the arm down opposite the headstock and use an allen wrench to slide the arm in,...the Bigsby arm will still contact the edge of the case and press it downward. To make if fit you would have to modify the case by cutting out some of the edge. This is a great case,...very sturdy,,...but it does not accomodate the new Epiphone Swingster electric guitar.

Worthless

Very low quality the lining even sags inside on lid.
Takes effort to align and close the latches.
My Es-295 did fit though.

        Nice case, plush interior, fits guitar perfectly, good support for the neck, interior storage compartment for accessories, robust hardware, sturdy handle. I prefer this style of case over the soft shelled. I do not feel inconvenienced of having to carry the guitar over "back packing" it when transporting.

            Beautiful to hear, easy to play, split coils are a great innovation. Loud enough to play without an amp.
            I play it more than others I've owned.

                          I bought this case for a Epiphone ES-175 Guitar... This case is way too thin to fit the 175... When you close the top the latches buckle out and you can barely close the case... Called Gibson to no avail... They said this EEMCS was supposed to be the correct case for the 175... (NOT) Do not buy this case for the 175... I believe it is for the Emperor which is a little thinner...

                          Thie is a beautiful, well-made case. I bought it level 1 open box but it is mint. Tolex is not as tough as ABS but is great for around the house and light gigging/travel. Inside is plush and despite some claims I read on the internet: THIS IS THE PROPER CASE FOR THE SWINGSTER! You don't have to take the chet wire off. Just dial it around between the two tone knobs and the lid shuts fine with no pressure on the bigsby. There was a slight glue smell but nothing a dryer sheet won't cure.
