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:

      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

                  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.

                          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.
