Your guitar will fit snug as a bug in this case. Musician's Friend is great. I have cases that cost more and the quality of the Epiphone is even better than most. There is plenty room for strap, strings, tuner etc. in the compartment. It's very plush inside and out. Good hardware. Only downside is the fit is so tight you can't leave your strap on the guitar although a set of strap locks allows quick disconnect.

This is a nice case however when it says new I expected to receive new. The case I got has a huge crack in it. The only way I would recommend this case is if you are willing to take the risk of buying something "New" and getting something used. There was no damage to the packaging so it wasn't the people who delivered it.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Hardshell Case:

      I own both the Gibson and Epi cases. This case is just as rugged and spacious as the Gibson case. It's also padded better. My Gibson fits perfectly in it, nobody knows what's inside, and I saved a lot of money. You are simply paying for a name - get the Epi case and you will be just as happy, with more $$$ left in your pocket.

      Perfect Case for my Les Paul Pro/FX

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Hardshell Case:

      Perfect case for my Les Paul Plustop PRO/FX. Fits very snug. The case has an extra latch on the opposite side, that took me by surprise. I need to remember to unlatch it first before unlatching the three main ones. The internal compartment is great for the tremolo bar, picks, etc.
      The best part is...the case doesn't stink! Some cases have a foul chemical odor. This case actually has a pleasant scent.

      I have been putting off buying a hardshell case because of the price but im sure glad i bought this case. Its a lot better than using a bag and i feel more at ease with my les paul in this case than in a bag.

          Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Hardshell Case:

          If you have a good epiphone guitar you need a good case to protect it. Same as a gibson case in my book. Nice and sturdy and black in color. As long as it keeps my guitar from the outside elements, that is all i care. Need to keep your guitar in good condition.

              Had one of these for an Ultra lll & it couldn't have fit better! Just purchased another Ultra lll but it was in a generic, rectangle, strat case & has movement & no neck support so, needless to say, I forsee another purchace of this case. I've looked at other, cheaper, "made for LPs" off brand cases but I'm not taking a chance on a bad fit or quality issues. Like I said, it is MADE for the Epi LP...so I'm taking her home.
              Anyone need a Strat case? Lol

                      First of all this was an exchange that Musician's Friend handled beautifully!!! The case is cool, stylish, and makes me feel like my new guitar is very well protected! The only reason I didn't rate it higher is that I just got it, so I don't have a lot of history with it yet. My guitar fits very snug, but that just makes it feel more loved. Thanks Epiphone and Musician's friend!!!

                      My wife got me this case for my birthday and I was excited when I first opened the box. It looked really nice, but when I started to examine the case carefully, I noticed that the black vinyl was peeling back and you could see the wood under it. It was in four different spots, so I decided to return it for another one. The return process was painless and MF sent me another case within a week. The second case was worst then the first one! This one wouldn't close properly and the wood was exposed in a couple of places. I finally decided to return it for a refund. I did write to Epiphone letting them know of the poor quality of the case, hopefully they will fix the problem going forward.

                          Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Hardshell Case:

                          I prefer this case to the Gibson one that came with my LP Studio. The coating is nice and supple, though that also means that it's quite easy to scuff up. Fortunately, it also has little metal feet on three sides, so it won't rock around and will protect the covering. Inside, the thick plush holds your guitar snug, and the door over the compartment is sturdy and doesn't flop around. On the exterior, again, the handle is big and solid, but just soft enough to be comfortable.

                          This is an incredibly nice case, and MF has them for a great price right now. You won't find a real case this cheap new anywhere else, and if it saying Epiphone really bothers you, you can easily clear that off with some paint thinner.
