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.

      Comments about Epiphone Emperor Hardshell Guitar Case:

      Just to confirm, this model case fits the Epiphone ES 175 Premium perfectly. I've owned earlier versions of the Epiphone hard cases and this one is better overall in quality of materials and fit and finish. The others I've had used a shiny vinyl covering that was not resistant to most handling. They also were a bit sloppy in the fit of the top to the case. The latches did not close tightly. This case is improved in all areas. The outer finish is a matte finished vinyl that seems a bit sturdier than previous. The case closes tight and the latches hold firmly. Very pleased especially at the new lower price.

        Really good case for the money. Guitar fits nice and snug. Should hold up well for traveling. Very pleased with this purchase. I bought the Epiphone ES-175 and needed this to house it in.

            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...
