    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 don't own an sg guitar but many of the players I play with do and they own this case. The case works well for sg's. Guitars fit snuggly and the case provides decent protection for simple carrying around from gig to gig or rehearsals. Doubt it would hold up on flights but I haven't tested that so I really can't say on that.

    I own an Epiphone Nighthawk and this case is the one recommened for it. I got one immediately and is wouldn't work. The body fit with no issues and was held in place securely. Problem with the case and guitar is that the neck of the guitar wouldn't lie down horizontally. With how the guitar was held in the case the neck would be curved upwards ever so slight that when I would attemp to close the case the top would press down on the neck which could have caused damage. I tried 4 cases from the newer versions out to older ones from the 80s and 90s. Not really what I wanted.

    Great case for sg's from what I can tell but for nighthawks avoid. I ended up finding an older godin rectangle case for my nighthakw.

            Comments about Epiphone SG Hardshell Case:

            I ordered one of these for my first SG Special. MF gave me an SKB instead of an Epiphone case, which is all well and good except for the fact that the SKB cases fit the LTD Vipers much better than standard SG shapes. Either way, I was mostly satisfied, but be wary of MF sending the wrong product.

              I was given an Epiphone SG special as a Christmas present from my son but needed a case to protect it. This case is not only a perfect fit but it's sturdy, great looking and even has the Epiphone logo. Who could ask for more?

                Comments about Epiphone SG Hardshell Case:

                I just bought my first SG & I bought this case to take it with me. This case is rugged, offers plenty of protection for your guitar. It has a accessory compartment with lots of room for extra strings, picks, a small tuner, capo, etc. Bottom like if you own a SG or are planing on owning a SG then it would be well worth your time & money to invest in a good case for your SG.

                I got the Epiphone SG hardshell case as a free gift with my Epiphone 1966 SG G-400 PRO. Over all it is a good case. The SG fits snug and the case appears to be constructed well. My case only came with one key which could be a problem if I was in the habit of locking my case and in turn lost the key. Had this case not come as a free gift I would have purchased this case for my guitar.

                    I needed a case for my SG Classic, which came with a flimsy soft case hardly fitting for a grown-up's guit-fiddle. This provides a pretty good fit. And when I'm playing at home, my Pomeranian always jumps into the case and sleeps. It so cute, you'd puke.

                      I have an Epiphone G-400 Custom. I ordered this case for it, and it fits perfectly.

                      It's much nicer than I was expecting! The interior reminds me of a nice Geib case from the 60s or 70s, and the exterior looks like a high-end Aria or Ibanez case from the 70s or 80s. All in all, a very good deal and a pleasant surprise.

                      I like that they left off the back latch. Barring a sudden, simultaneous failure of all the hinges at once, I could never see what purpose the back latch served.

                      A great case!

                        A well built and well padded case that accomodates my Epi SG Pro. I bought a less expensive case for my Epi Les Paul Studio and it is too tight putting pressure on the neck. I have bought this Epiphone case and one for my ES 339 Pro and will stick with the Epiphone cases in the future should the need arise.
