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.

          It protects the guitars-ok for the money.As I opened the case from one end I could see the top bend from the weight.Its ok for the price,because I don't travel with it.It does provide protection which is it's purpose.

          Comments about Epiphone Explorer Hardshell Case:

          This is overall a great case. Nice plushy lining, outside covered in Tolex, solid construction, a HUGE accessory compartment inside and a lockable clasp. The only thing that may concern me in the future is the handle assembly; it seems a little flimsy. Time will tell I guess. Oh... there was mention on a previous review that this case does not fit the Epiphone Goth Explorer... well that's completely false! This case fits the Epiphone Goth explorer perfectly. MF even shipped mine in this case when I ordered them together.

            Nice explorer case. Great for any explorer body without paying an arm and a leg. Was surprised how nicely done and the decent materials used. Definitely good enough for a full price Gibson.
            Good for basic collector or practical regular playing. Outside will of course take a beating if regular gigging. Case built tough enough though to hold up for years. as new case smell only bad thing about it. May take some time to dissapate as it is very strong.

            Comments about Epiphone Explorer Hardshell Case:

            This is a big case, about 1/3 larger than a typical Strat/Tele case. But it houses a big guitar so it's about right and you can put your cords and other accessories in it with room to spare. Seems to be very sturdy and well made for every day use.
