I have 3 other hardcases for my guitars. I would say this is overall a good case it does its job. Nice soft interior. Tight fitting to the body of the guitar. Absolutely no wiggle room so your explorer shaped guitar won't bounce around. Hardware is solid. I think it should last. Honestly the only thing I can complain about is that it came with a huge scratch on the front of it brand new. A disappointment musicians friend...but it is a case and it bought it for its functionality. And it does a good job. I would also like to add that gibson makes the best hardcases in my opinion. My sg modeled case is the best, skb is good too but for the price I would say this case is well worth it if you want to protect your ax...

The handle assembly is junk. The case itself is not too bad - but the handle on my case held up for about a month. First, one of the rivets that attach the plastic handle to the metal bracket came lose. I replaced these with a small bolt. Then the actual metal atted to the case came loose from the case.

    Comments about Epiphone Explorer Hardshell Case:

    Overall the case is very nice. The inside compartment lid is a little sloppy feeling. The Epiphone 58 Korina Explorer fits very snug so it will not shift. I did get a great price when purchased and well worth it.

        Comments about Epiphone Explorer Hardshell Case:

        For the money this case cannot be beat. Is it as good as a Gibson case? No, but it is 1/4 of the price. Lid is a little flimsy but it is lined very well and most of the case is pretty solid construction. Probably would not last during heavy touring but for home use and taking out for occasional gigs it will be fine. Bottom line, if you need an explorer case that gets the job done for a decent price, buy it!

            I got this for my 58 goth explorer with a Dimebucker. When I got it I thought that it was huge compared to other guitar cases. Its kind of bulky but it keeps my guitar protected and safe. The inner lining is a nice soft fuzzy material and the storage box inside can hold more then you can imagine. good price for a great case

                        Comments about Epiphone Explorer Hardshell Case:

                        Needed a case for my 2016 Gibson Explorer. There's no way my Explorer was going to survive all the rigors of gigging and back and forth to rehearsal in the flimsy gigbag Gibson provided. I couldn't afford any of the other cases which are around double the price, so I picked up the Epiphone case. It's well built, the guitar fits snugly, and it will protect it when bouncing around in the car or shoved in the corner at a gig. The only part that feels somewhat on the flimsy side would be the handle, but I think it will hold up well enough. Very good value for the money, as far as I'm concerned.
