I own two of these cases. Simply put, this case cannot be beat for the money. This stylish case fits the instrument perfectly and firmly cradles the neck. Unless you are prone to dropping your case out of 10th story windows or shipping them, this is more case than you will ever need for a fraction of the cost. The "older" Epiphone cases had a single clasp on the back (hinge side) of the case that was about as useful as a parachute on a submarine. Most folks forgot to unlatch before opening, resulting in a broken clasp. Epiphone/Gibson wised up, because the back clasp is no longer a feature on these cases!

I bought the case for a Gibson SG, thought since it was an Epiphone it would be sure to fit...wrong! The case lid won't close without being pushed down, which creates too much pressure on the guitar. Also in the description it said the case was non-locking but mine had a lock on it so I guess this is a new/different case; even though they are the same item number. I have two other Gibson SGs with two Gibson cases and both fit. One case is the Gibson SG case that is listed on MF site. Ending up sending Epi case back and buying a Gator Traditional Brown which fits perfectly. Am disappointed the case didn't fit as advertised! I read many great reviews on the case before the purchase...something has changed, the new case IS lockable.

Perfect Case for Wilshire Phantomatic Guitar

      Comments about Epiphone SG Hardshell Case:

      I recently purchased an Epiphone Wilshire Phantomatic guitar, but I had conflicting information regarding the ideal hardshell case for it. I had several reliable sopurces tell me that an SG-type case would be perfect, but one good friend cautioned that only an Epiphone SG case would do, since the headstock on an Epi SG is longer than that of a Gibson. Since the Phanto has an SG-type neck, I decided to go with the Epi case, and I'm glad I did. The guitar fits perfectly. The only reason I didn't give this case five stars is that it doesn't have a latch on the back side.

          Comments about Epiphone SG Hardshell Case:

          Needed a case to fit my new Epiphone G-400 SG, this fits like a glove. The design is a lot lighter than my old hard shell rectangular cases. Between that and the G-400 being a fairly light solid body guitar, the combination is very easy to carry and transport.

              Overall a very nice case. Would prefer to have 1-2 extra latches on the back side, but not a major issue unless it become a problem down the road at some time.

              Comments about Epiphone SG Hardshell Case:

              I bought this case for my son after I gave him my old Epiphone SG that I bought in 1983. I had been using an old converted acoustic guitar case all those years ago but figured it was time to have a proper case especially since I am passing it on. It's a great case and for the price hard to beat! My only complaint, and this goes for pretty much everything, is the made in China label. I understand that is just the way things are these days but I try and buy Made in USA as much as I can.

                  I recently bought a Gibson SG and needed a hard shell case. Instead of paying extra for a Gibson case, I bought the Epiphone. It's great. It serves the purpose, nice soft inside. Hard shell exterior. It's the best case for the money.

                    I was concerned that this case wouldn't be a good fit for my Epiphone G-400. However, when I placed my guitar into it, I was amazed at how it fit perfectly. I'm confident it's the best protection when I hand it over to the airlines for my upcoming trip from the U.S. to Australia where I live. Unfortunately, there's nothing I can do about the scrapes and scratches which the airlines will add.

                      The Nighthawk needs a rolled wash cloth on the lower bout to make a perfect fit, the case is well built and could last forever.
