    I don't travel much and want to take my guitar out ready to play. This case is PERFECT for me. It is classy and has the Fender tag and G-and-G tag inside which I like. I got the tweed and red and just ordered the brown and gold and my first one was pretty much flawless. The best thing of all is that I can leave my strap with strap locks ON my guitar in the case. I have two new deluxe American strats and the nice hard plastic cases that came with them don't have room for the strap! And they COME with strap locks! It really bugs me to take off and store the strap after each time I play. If I traveled frequently, I would want a tough, light-weight ugly plastic case. THIS is not that case. It is very distinguished looking, heavy and probably wouldn't look great for long being abused. That being said, if you want a regal setting for your prized axe that gives you a sense of satisfaction each time you flip open the latches, this case is the one.

    G&G Fender Cases - Ghosts of Quality Long Past

    Maybe in its heyday these were THE cases to have. I bought one of their nice looking Fender branded tweed cases to protect a nice Strat I am lucky to own, and was shocked at the poor workmanship (studs not hammered in all the way, crooked name plates, pieces bent out of shape, etc.,).
    I contacted G&G via email to let them know of my concerns regarding the poor quality. (I offered them an "out" thinking perhaps my case had been assebled poorly by Fender as a partner.) I heard nothing from them for weeks.When they finally responded, their correspondence was NOT very well written, in terms of professionalism, tone of customer service, or grammar; I felt like I was getting mobile texts from a teenage girl.I was basically asked to prove and provide photographic evidence. I did so gladly.Without any apology, G&G offered to replace my case, but they insisted that I pay for boxing it up and shipping it across the country to them. These are quite large and heavy pieces and it's not worth my time and money, as a mere average consumer, to ship it at a cost much higher than what a large company can afford to do. I suspect that they know this very well.It's a shame really that a USA company is taking this approach to "quality control" and customer satisfaction. Cheaper foreign imports are unfortunately improving their quality (and customer relations) to the point where it's hard to argue "Buy USA," especially if the quality of product and sevice is as poor as I've experienced. I recently bought some imported German guitar strings and the owner himself corresponded with me when I had a few break on me - sending me replacements for free all the way from Europe.This classic company may not last much longer if this is the trend. Very sad.

        Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

        Beautiful case, inside & out. Sturdy construction as one would expect from G&G (who manufactures Fender cases). Interior was actually a little brighter and closer to red than the pictures would have you believe, but it's still very pretty. Exterior of the case has the raised Fender chrome/plastic logo. That was a nice surprise.

            Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

            Not much to say on this case - it's good, but not a flight case. I have another one a few years older. Been to tons of gigs without letting me down. Bought this one for a new guitar. If you drive to your gigs, it's great. I wouldn't trust it for air travel - the fasteners just aren't up to snuff for that. Plush lining is nice, and foam protection has proved adequate - mine has been knocked around pretty good with no ill effects to guitar.

                This case was not the same version of the G&G case I was expecting. There is a new center clasp, and the case itself has an ever so slight difference in weight and shape. Its still a good case, but beware if youre paying attention.

                  This is the second Fender (G&G) Brown Tolex Tele/Strat case I have purchased from Musician's Friend. The G&G made case is light years ahead of Fender's less expensive line of cases and have that early 60's look GOING ON!!
                  Great looks, great construction and great protection for your Tele/Strat guitar. I had a 1963 P-Bass with brown Tolex case back in the 80's and fell in love with the brown Tolex look then. Musician's Friend had the best price, too.

It was well packed in two boxes, so there was little to no chance of any damage during shipping….… This tweed guitar case is beautiful !!! The craftsmanship is awesome and it fits my Fender Custom Shop Strat like a glove… I absolutely love it…… Well worth every penny I spent !!!!

                      Bought a high end Stat that came with a molded case. A couple of the feet broke off and screws were sticking out. Couldn't believe it. So I snapped the screws off and used the case for an old tele that was in my closet. Perfect fit, and recycled the case. Needed a new case for my Strat. Tried a cheaper one first, but when I got it, it was flimsy and poorly made. Decided to just go with the nice Fender case. I made the right choice. It is classic Fender design and well built. Plenty room for cords, strap, tuner and mic. The guitar fits like a glove. I was debating over the different colors etc., but I just got the classic black. (They're all made the same... the only difference is the color). If you have a nice Tele or Strat... go ahead and get a nice case for it! You won't be disappointed with this case.

                      Well built case, with perfect fit for my strat. None of the issues with poor construction that others have experienced, but the interior plush is the wrong color. I ordered the black case with orange plush, but the interior is red, not the orange I expected. Not worth the hassle of sending the case back,but the lack of quality control is troubling.
