MusiciansFriend had a great sale on these G&G cases and I was really excited when I received my order. However, the case turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. Don't get me wrong, it's still a beautiful, sturdy and protective case. But as a couple of other reviewers have noted, attention to detail - the hallmark of a great manufacturing company, American or otherwise - is just not there.

First, and immediately most noticeable, the case is bigger. I know this because I own an immaculate 2004 tweed G&G case. This new case, a brown tolex model, is almost a half inch thicker. Consequently, it is also slightly heavier.

Second, the lock and clasp fittings look like cheap imitations compared to the 2004 case. On closer inspection, the locks on the 2004 model have "Cheney England" marks inside. The new ones are unmarked. I've since found that Cheney Locks of England no longer exists.

Third, and most troubling, is the sloppy detail work. Mine is not as bad as a few reviewers here have described, but still does not bear close inspection. This is a sad development for an iconic American manufacturer much loved and a big part of Fender's history making legacy.

I would still recommend these G&G cases over the Vietnam made cases that Fender sells under its Pro Series line. But only at the sale prices that MusiciansFriend has made them available.

Very attractive case for your favorite Fender....BUT... Unfortunately, the case manufacturer has zero quality control. Ordered the black case with orange interior. First one arrived damaged, with tears in the tolex covering and poorly aligned hardware. When case was clicked shut, still had a huge gap. Returned, got another. Next one arrived with even more tears in tolex, and extra holes drilled on apparently their first attempt at mounting hardware, still poorly aligned and wouldn't stay shut. Returned, thought I'd try the gold tweed. It arrived with only minor nicks in fabric, but case was about 1" too short to hold Fender strat (70's headstock). Returned, waiting on fourth and final attempt - another black case with orange interior. Hoping it's not damaged. Should have ordered a generic case in hindsight, but I'm on a mission now to find ONE Fender case that isn't defective. Would have thought a Fender case would be the best thing for a Fender guitar. Who knew.

Tweed Fender Strat/Tele Case

By Joe

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

Got the Tweed case. Chose the Fender case over others because the latch/locks on the Fender case is riveted in place. MF case had the lock/locks that were attached with screws. No security with MF case. The Tweed case has the small Fender logo plate between the handle.

          Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

          I have had numerous C&G cases over the years and most have had very good attention to detail. The current model available for purchase is very hit or miss. This is the 2nd case that I have purchased, the 1st case I received had defective latches that would not spring open. The problem lies in the quality of the latches. They are very flimsy at first look and the operation of the latches confirms it's weakness. The second problem is its 3 rear hinges. They are all crooked and were obviously assembled to the case with zero attention to detail. One is so crooked that I thought it would interfere with the opening process. The case does open but it is not acceptable on a case of this type.

          The inside, however, is very nice with obvious attention to detail. My Strat fits perfectly and the separate compartment opens and closes very nicely. I only decided to keep the case because I didn't want to go through the hassle of repacking and sending it back for a replacement that may be worse than the current one. I had asked if someone could check out the case before shipping and was told that it drop-shipped from somewhere else and was not possible.

          (This review was based on a Black Tolex with Orange/Red interior.)

                        This is a really nice case; however, I had to send it back because my Fender Strat with a 70's head stock did not fit the case. The head stock extended over the padding on the top of the case. Had to go with the PRO case which is a good case but not as nice as this one.

                          The Strat case is great for my guitar and pretty lite, but when I want to take my kitty, she does not fit very well and the case is difficult to close. Once I did get it closed she really loved the soft velvet lining.
