    This case is very good looking on the outside and especially on the inside as well. Definitely a great product for a great price. The only thing I would suggest to make it better would be making the outer parts of the case clips metal instead of plastic and a metal handle. Under the plastic there is metal which is most important though still protecting your gear. Overall awesome case for an awesome deal!

    Not for a PC1

    It fits like they said it would. But way to sloppy. Not made for a PC1. Going with a Jackson case now with molded inside.

      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.

          Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Electric Guitar Case:

          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.

            Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Electric Guitar Case:

            I needed a decent sturdy, dependable case for my PRS 305. I was a little concerned it wouldn't be a good fit as I had to purchase on-line and could not check one out first. The Rep I spoke with at Musicians Friend assured me this case would be a good fit and for any reason told me I could return it if need be.
            My 305 fit absolutely perfect. It is a strong durable case. The only negative I would give is the two small storage compartments are quite small without covers. All in all it is worth the money and I forsee NO problems with this as it is built very well. My PRS 305 was not cheap so I would not have chosen this case to protect it if it wasn't built well!

              Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Electric Guitar Case:

              Ordered this case using MF CaseFinder. It is a great case but one problem. My Fender Jag HH will not fit into the case. It is not long enough or wide enough. I tried one of my Teles and it was a perfect fit. I'm keeping the case for my tele but had to order another one for the Jag. Hoping the new one will be right for the Jag, cause I don't need any more for my Teles. It is a great case but be careful using Case finder.
