    I BOUGHT THIS FOR MY LP 70S TRIBUTE, FIT PERFECTLY. THESE CASES ARE VERY TOUGH AND THIGHT; THEY CUSHION AND CLOSE OVER THE LP CARVED TOP MODELS PERFECTLY. DON'T TRY TO USE THEM FOR A FLAT SLAB LP SPECIAL OR SMALLER OR THINNER LP TYPES - IT WOULD BE TOO DEEP FOR THE NECK TO SEAT RIGHT.

    Overall... it didn't fit, what else can I say?
    Has the features I'd want in a case, though in my case, my front and back bound Les Paul didn't fit at all. It's a Les Paul custom with front and back binding on the body, but the dimensions are the exact same as any other Les Paul. The neck wouldn't sit properly and the body itself would not fit in the space allotted. I was able to close the case, but with the neck not even touching the support it didn't seem safe to keep the guitar in there, not at all. Obviously this thing is working for some folks, but not for me. I got mine from another online retailer and sent it back the same day.
    The molded outer body seems pretty sturdy, but the inside had almost no padding. The little flip up door to stow away accessories is basically just cardboard. Overall i was disappointed with the case and it's build quality, not to mention
    I've had nicer cases that cost a bit less than this. If the guitar fit I probably would have kept it, but I wasn't thrilled with the cost to value ratio.

      Comments about Gator ATA Molded GPE-LPS-TSA Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

      Some confusion over getting a case that fits my Ibanez ARZ IR27. An SKB universal was referred by an MF associate and was too small. Returning was easy enough and the Gator works perfectly. Nice solid case.

          Comments about Gator ATA Molded GPE-LPS-TSA Guitar Case with TSA Latches:

          Bought a couple of these for my PRS SE 245's at my local retailer, had trouble finding any information online as to what cases actually fit that guitar, even the PRS Hard shell cases people say don't fit them so figured I would say that this does actually fit them.

          Seems like a great solid case too, haven't had it long enough to say for sure though...

          I scooped up an all-original '71-'73 Ibanez 2350 Les Paul copy. The guitar is sick!! The original case was like cardboard protection, so an upgrade was needed. Unfortunately, the way the guitar sits, the neck doesn't contact the case 's neck support. I have to place a folded sock under the body to bring the neck down. May send it back, as the sock thing is not ideal.

            I got this amp for my ESP LTD-1000. I was going to get an ESP case, but luckily they were sold out. I say luckily because I have seen the ESP case and compared it to the Gator. The Gator case is superior in every way. Beyond the great color of the inside that makes my Amber Sunburst pop, their attention to detail is what gets me. The cutaway for the pickup toggle takes the cake. All-in-all, a great case.

              Only the second time I've ordered from Musicians Friend but, the service has been great so far. I chose the free shipping and received my order in only 4 days! Case was double boxed and in a plastic bag. It could not have been packaged better. I also own a Roadrunner hardshell case and the Gator case is slightly better in overall quality - especioally the latches. When I put my LP in the case, I think I heard it say "Ahhhhhh"! Very nice fit and if I were a Les Paul, this case is where I would want to be. I will probably buy more gear from Gator and for sure from Musicians Friend. Just wish Gator would bring their manufacturing back to the USA.

                Excellent case for a great price.Beats the competition by a mile as far as quality and features. Better handle,3 hinges instead of 2 like the competition. Shoulders on latches make it less likely to snag on other items.

                  Bought a new/old stock 2008 epiphone les paul gothic. Case fits the guitar perfectly... no movement when placed in the case. Neck is supported great. Storage compartment is alittle small....but how big does it really need to be? Excellent product. Nice crushed velvet lining. Secure locks.
