I just got this case for my Epiphone Firebird Studio. I wasnt sure what i would get because the site used to have pictures of a case that wasnt molded and the reviews were pretty harsh. But after months of living with no case for my darling guitar i decided to risk investing in one of these. When i got it i was blown away. This case is absolutely beautiful. It had no blemishes and everything worked perfectly. The firebird fits beautifully. It IS molded and very well made. If you own one of the Epiphone Firebirds i highly recommend this case.

I bought the Firebird VII and absolutely love it. I ordered this case at the same time from a local dealer (not Musician's Friend). It was on backorder at Epiphone for almost 4 months and i finally cancelled it. Instead, I bought the Musician's Freind bass case hoping it would fit, and it did! It won't fit in the guitar case but the bass case fits it like a glove with a little room to spare at the headstock. It's a cheaper solution, and judging by the other reviews, better quality. (Also, it looks great in the TWEED.)

Comments about Epiphone Firebird Hardshell Case:

I bought one of these for my new Gibson Firebird. It is a very nice case, the lining is very plush and the guitar fits perfectly snug inside of it. It seems to be well protected in its new home, versus the gig bag that came with the guitar when I bought it. For the money this case is great. The only downside I see so far to it, is that the case seems really heavy compared to my other guitars and cases. The fake leather covering looks like it may scratch easy too, especially someone gigging a lot and traveling with the guitar and case. Luckily for me, I just use it at home to store my guitar, and it fits my needs perfectly. I expect the case to last for years and in its original like new condition!

The interior is PLUSH thick soft protection for the guitar and is the high point of the features of this case that and the HUGE storage area with lid for MANY packs of strings, slides and picks even a sandwich!

          Comments about Epiphone Firebird Hardshell Case:

          I bought this case to protect my Gibson Firebird V. It has a form fitting cutout of the body shape, so the guitar fits very securely with no room to move around. The case covering material is not super tough, so if you throw the case around, it will get dinged. The guitar came with a gig bag from Gibson, and this case will provide far better protection. I bought it because I didn't want to pay three times as much for the Gibson version of the case. I have used different Anvil cases in the past, and while they are the ultimate protection, they are very heavy and take up much more space than a regular case. If I was to tour with this guitar I would probably go that route, but to play around the city, carrying the guitar myself, this was an attractive choice. I would recommend it to any gigging musician who wants to invest in a nice guitar, but doesn't mind saving a little on the case.

            I bought this case for my 2016 Gibson firebird. It is a very good case for the money. I really like that it form fits the guitar perfectly. It is sturdy and well made but as with all epiphone cases, the tolex tends to tear easily.

                The 2016 Gibson Firebird T only comes with a gig bag. This case works just fine. There isn't a lot of extra room behind the headstock but it does fit. The Stienberger tuners aren't a problem.
                The illustration shows a universal fit case. It's not. This is a form fitting case. The only guitar going in this case is a Firebird.

                Fits my new Gibson Firebird T great. Not as good as a Gibson case but for the price it worth it.
                Better protection than the gig bag it came with.

                  I bought this case for an ESP LTD Phoenix and it fits well. The case looks really nice. It is on the bulky side, but that's just the way it is for odd shaped guitars.
