I'm a big believer in SKB cases. Saw one that had been through a house fire. Looked horrible, but the Ovation acoustic inside did not even smell like smoke. Their gear is built well, and is built to last. Compared to similarly priced options from other companies, SKB wins the price/quality war. Countless musicians will agree that their gear does stand the test of time.
Latches are outstanding, interior is roomy and very supportive. I noticed someone say that this will not fit a Tele. This is absolutely NOT correct. My American Standard Telecaster came in one of these from the factory, and it fits like a glove. Also have one for my Strat.
You simply cannot beat an SKB case for durability and quality. Gator, Roadrunner, etc. make okay stuff, but SKB is tops, IMO. Hinges, latches, and gasket fit and work well, every time. Handle is a work of art by itself. Well balanced case, especially with a guitar inside. All this in a case that is lightweight, yet quite strong.
Actually about 30 dollars cheaper than the SKB branded case, and at $99...it beats any other offering at this price hands down.

The case is okay but defiantly not great. The outside is good but the inside leaves a lot to be desired. The lining is not plush and seems cheap. It would be nice if the accessory space had a lid or someway to keep things from falling out. The interior molding holds the guitar okay but the overall feel to me is cheap. I didn't get ripped off...I just expected a little better quality from something with Fender on it.

Great Case

By cmjandro

from Marquette, MI

See all my reviews

Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

i like this case so much, i just ordered the bass version for my squier cv jazz bass. i would buy it again if anything were to happen to it, but if it was stolen, that would mean my guitar was too, so it would be pointless to buy a case for a non-existent guitar. but anyways, buy this case and you wont be disappointed. it is a good value, airline friendly, and very protective.
I gave this case an 8 just because i wish the storage compartment was a little bigger, but that really is a small issue because it is big enough to hold almost all the things i need. other than that, i think its perfect. the latches/lock are really clever and useful. it fits my squier vm telecaster modified perfectly.
it really is a durable case. i can see myself still using it years down the road. the latches and hinges seem very durable, and the lock is reliable. the padding is perfectly snug around my tele.
its not so neccessary for a mid range guitar like im using it for, but it is a fantastic case, and i honestly think it is a great value. it protects your guitar, while also being user friendly.

SKB Does It Again

By KidRocker

from Memphis, Tn.

See all my reviews

Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

The SKB Fender Molded Case is excellent and well made. It fits all of my Strats perfectly including the ones Ive built. The locks are tight, the fit is tight, the grooves are tight, and it has become my favorite case. And thats saying something because I have about 30 of them including other SKB cases. I have a similar one for a SG but this one is a newer style with better locks. But note this isnt a Flight case. Baggage handlers will destroy a M1A1 tank! But it will stand up to regular gigs without a problem.

When I build another Strat I will definitely purchase another to cuddle it.
It's a keeper.
SKB. Do I need to say more?
Great Value.

Great buy! ( Fender SKB case, TSA latches)

Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

This is what I'll buy for my next project guitar. I invest a lot of time & money to do guitars the right way, & a good case is essential to protect them.
Well constructed. Sturdy hinges & latches. Room in compartments for a strap, tuner, extra strings, etc. My parts Strat fit perfectly w/ no sliding around. I don't even mind that it says Fender on it.
Top shelf.
I did exhaustive searching on the web, & in area shops. This case was & is the best electric guitar case I've found, FOR THE MONEY.

Best case I own

By StratocasterMaster696

from Utah

Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

I own a few different cases and gig bags for my different guitars, and this one is the best. It's not the best case I have ever seen, but for the price you can't beat it. The only complaint I have is the handle is uncomfortable to hold for very long because the case is heavy and there isn't really any padding on it.

Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

I needed a case for my custom Strat and am very pleased with the SKB. My Strat fits, with ClipLocks attached, and the loose parts are kept in their open compartment by a pillow in the lid. Nice design, durable, and a great value for the price. Highly recommended for Strat players who don't want to ding up a nice factory custom case.

Will NOT fit most teles!!

By Montavilla steve

from Portland

Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

Hey guys, great case here. Just be warned, it won't fit a tele. The reason it won't fit a tele is that there's not enough clearance for the knobs (or for a top hat switch in the middle position). I tried it with a nashville tele, and a '69 thinline. It wouldn't fit either of them because of the knobs. Hopefully, they change the title for this case or skb redesigns it so it'll fit standard teles. Until then, only buy this case if you're playing a strat or plan to put strat control knobs on your tele. I had to return this case and get a G&G, which is a bummer, 'cause this case has a lot going for it.

Excellent case for Strats and Teles

By Stanlo

from Kentucky

See all my reviews

Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

Okay, if you are worried about this case, don't be. I received mine with my American Standard Strat and it has held up great for 3 years now. I am a gigging pro and my equipment gets pretty abused and this has been able to take it. I am a die-hard Fender guy and have an American Standard, Am. Special and a Custom Shop Tele. I also have a Charvel Limited Edition (owned by Fender)with a Fender-licensed neck. ALL of these guitars fit in this case with no issues whatsoever. As far as TSA approved means...all that means is that if you travel with your axe in this case, that the TSA case can open your locked case with their master key to make sure you aren't smuggling contraband in there...so be fore-warned. I have some very nice Fender Tweed Cases and I prefer to put my guitar in this case so the tweed ones don't look like they wen't through a war when we travel. Buy it...great price!

Airline damaged case, but tele OK

By Charles Wilson

from Nevada

Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

Sacrificed itself to protect my beloved telecaster!
My case survived its first airline trip intact, with no damage. On its second trip, the airline managed to puncture and tear the very tough shell of the case at its corner. However; my American Standard Tele remained undamaged, despite the very great force it must have taken to rip the shell. In other words, the case did what it was supposed to do: protect my guitar from damage. By the way, the case fits my telecaster quite well, and has room for my tuner, picks, and cable. A thin strap fits in as well, but a thick padded strap is a challenge. I'm fighting the airline to reimburse me for the cost of replacing the case - when they do, I will immediately buy this same model again. Get one, they do the job at a great price.
Would give it a 10 if the airline had not been able to damage the shell at all.
Great price.

Great but Short

Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

This is a really great case. Super light. TSA locks. The only problem I had with it is the case is really short. My G&L tele was too long for the case. Had to return it.

this WILL fit your Tele...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

I don't understand the complaints from some Telecaster users about this case. I have several Tele's of all combinations (from traditional single coils with a standard 3 way lever switch to dual humbucking Tele's with Les Paul style toggle) and this case comfortably fits any of them. I can't speak for every Telecaster in the world, but I have no problem with these cases. The inside is very plush and my guitar doesn't move around and the lock and the clasps are very sturdy. Fender did a great job with these cases. Oh, one last perk... The plastic is much lighter than several of my older wooden Tweed covered cases which makes it nice when you are moving around multiple cases after a long night. I strongly recommend adding this to your case collection!

Perfect fit for my Squire "Tele"

By Scott Coker

from Undisclosed

See all my reviews

Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

If the compartments had lids and the price was a tad lower(probably had to pay extra for the "Fender" on the side), I would have rated it "Fantastic", but a great case just the same. Was going to order the "Gator" case , but it was out of stock, not one bit sorry thou. Some reviews said they had fitment problems but my "Squire Tele" fits like it was custom made for it. My brothers "Strat" fits perfect as well.
Would have given a ten, but there are no lids on the storage compartments.

Nice sturdy lightweight case. Strat fits perfectly. The latches are nice and work well but are plastic. How will they hold up to years of use? Definitely worth the money for me. The case is a little thick but not bad. Handle is nice and balances well.

    Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

    I bought this case because my Modern Player Thinline Deluxe Telecaster did not come with a case and I was going to take the guitar on a 2200 mile road trip. The case fit the guitar perfectly! There is enough space in the accessories compartment to fit a spare set of strings, tuner, strap, tools, and picks. The trip was over some very poor roads and the case rode in the back with all the rest of the luggage. The luggage looks worse for the wear but there is not a mark or scratch on the case. The only negative of this case is that is more bulky than some others but I think that is more than compensated for by the protection it provides.

    Cheap, Fits good, protects my strat

    By Chris Boehmer

    from Utah

    Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

    This case is the best case for the money out there. I couldn't find it cheaper anywhere else! (Even looking used). Smells kinda funny at first but eh. My strat fits in it just fine and it will keep it protected from anything/anyone who tries to mess

    The latches are okay, they're a bit different to get used to but hey they keep it closed. Love that I can lock my strat up from the pesky gremlins that roam my house!

    If you're trying to find a case for your strat get this one. Its the best quality for the best price. Plus you can't beat free shipping Very satisfied with purchase.

    SKB molded guitar case

    By Robert Corbett

    from N.C.

    See all my reviews

    Ask me a question

    Comments about Fender SKB Molded Case for Right or Left Hand Strat or Tele Guitars:

    Overall a great case for value and especially protection. You invest a lot of money in a good guitar and you'll need a way to transport it from one place to another SAFELY ! Hey, accidents are going to happen eventually so you might as well be prepared for them. If you're not going to throw it off the Empire State Building or think an elephant might sit on it, get something cheeper.
    This is a really good case for either a stratocaster or telecaster guitar. It is a molded plastic case that is heavy duty enough to handle the rigors of constant transport to the shows. I bought one a while back for my telecaster and have been glad I did. The Fender cases are nice looking and hold up well with care but these cases are really tough! The only reason that I gave this case an 8 was because they don't have a seperate storage compartment for straps and picks etc.I carry a seperate gig bag for my straps and cords and so it's not that big of a deal as I"d much rather have my guitar protected than straps. A really well made case.
    As I said the quality is excellent. This case is molded out of tough plastic and is rigid enough to take reasonable abuse of transporting in a trailer, and probably enough on an airplane. The latches are really great and heavy duty as well with a single locking center latch. This case holds my telecaster and stratocaster guitars nice and snugly so there is absolutely no moving of the guitar to rub while in the case. As I said the reason for the 9 rating is due to there not being a seperate holding compartment for accessories.
    The real purpose of a case is to protect your instrument and that's exactly what this case does. For the money, I haven't seen a better case. Gig bags really don't protect except for maybe minor scratches, but this case really does the job and looks great and professional as well. You really cain't go wrong at this price, and I've seen more expensive cases not as well made as this one.
