    I got this case for my B.C. Rich Mockingbird. I knew it would be a tight fit. Crushing the foam at the body corners it's a very nice tight fit, was less than 2/3 the price of the B.C. Rich case, and I believe, offers better protection and more durability than the B.C. Rich case. The latches are one hand easy open and close. The carry handle thick, strong, and feels good in the hand. Great case at a great price.

          Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Electric Guitar Case:

          "Find A Case" listed this case as fitting the Danelectro electric 12-string (fine guitar) The guitar is a little too big for the case. The case seemed fine otherwise,but not a match for that particular guitar. I found a Roadrunner canvas case that fits that guitar perfectly. Musician's Friend rep was very considerate and all costs were covered in returning and refund. Thank you.

            This case is made of fine materias. I would trust it to handle a rough ride. I am using it for a Stratocaster Deluxe. The guitar fits perfectly, much better than the original case. It is also a perfect fit for my Fender FSR Standard Tele.

                Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Electric Guitar Case:

                I own four of these cases. I bought them to hold my Michael Kelly Patriot series guitars when Michael Kelly stopped making their wooden, form-fitting Patriot cases. These cases are superb: they fit my guitars snugly, they have excellent support for the neck, they are very well-made, they're very tough, very cool-looking (business-like), have TSA latches, and are stackable thanks to the built-in, interlocking flanges on the front and back surfaces of the case. I can recommend them highly for anyone looking for a great case at a reasonable price. Now for the unfortunate caveat: THIS CASE WILL NOT FIT THE NEW MICHAEL KELLY 1950s SERIES TELE GUITARS! The headstock on these guitars overhangs the edge of the case by at least a full inch. Too bad, since the body fits the case perfectly. You will need to buy a longer case, like one of the wooden, rectangular cases from Musician's Gear, etc. If you own one of the Michael Kelly Teles, measure its overall length (40 inches, which includes the butt strap pin), and speak to a representative BEFORE you order a case. I'll still probably buy another one of these soon, since I'm customizing an Ibanez RG series guitar that needs a good, safe place to sleep! ;-)

                Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Electric Guitar Case:

                I usually buy another very popular brand but they didn't have a case that specifically fit what I was looking for in this instance. I decided to give this case a try and I love it! I will pick more of these up in the future. It's nice and sturdy, my beloved ancient guitar literally doesn't budge in this case, so the fit is awesome. It seems many universal cases have a bit of extra room, but this one fits my guitar like a glove. The case is beautiful as well and I actually really, really like these ATA locks. They aren't too bulky and seem to secure the case very well. Love it!

                  This case is solidly built, easy to lock/unlock, and protects your guitar. My Fender Strat fits almost perfectly. it has less than 1/4" to move up and down. All in All very happy with the case. Used it flying through IAH airport in Houston with no issues.

                    I am in Afghanistan and I need protection from the elements out here. I have a Squier 70's Vintage Stratocaster and it needs a home to sleep in at night. I also travel back and forth to Germany and need to take my guitar on the aircraft. This case is perfect. It is really nice inside and out. Looks real professional. It is much better for travel than a wooden case. It fits my guitar like a glove and there is plenty of room for straps and picks and all. Perfect for me and well priced as well.
