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.

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 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.

        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.

        Great case for the money!!

        By John Risko

        from Pennsylvania, USA

        Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Electric Guitar Case:

        I bought this to transport my Ibanez RG.....the angled headstock came a little too close to the floor of the case for my comfort, so I just slipped a piece of foam under the neck cradle.....perfect.
        I needed a better case for my guitar to travel to Germany....my usual hardcase wasn't trustworthy enough for that kind of travel, and I didn't want to go broke for a better one. This was the perfect answer!! Tough case, the latches all worked securely, and there was plenty of room inside to carry a few small guitar tools/strap, etc. and two stompboxes....plus a few sets of strings. The case performed flawlessly, everything stayed where it should, not a single problem with this case.....love it! I should note that the first case I received was missing the keys for the TSA locking latch. Musician's Friend got another case to me (WITH the keys) the day after I called customer service....great job, MF!! The missing keys were obviously a fault of the manufacturer, but MF Customer Service came through for me in time for the band's flight!! Well done....
        Case seams all fit well, latches work tightly and securely, nice job on the inside finish 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!

            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!

              Looks like a nice case and well made for the price. Be careful and measure before you order. This fits my Strat perfectly but my Ibanez solid is over an inch too wide and my Les Paul an inch too long.

                    this case is too slim for a les paul by about 1 1/2". now with that being said mf did ask if I wanted another case I said no because it worked fine for my tele that I had. but if your looking for a good case to put your les paul in (or copy like an eppy) this is not the case. I have other gator cases that are great but this case is just miss sized...plz save your time

                    "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.

                    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! ;-)

                      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.

                          Great case, s series Ibanez fits very well. I really like the latches, seem like they will take a lot of wear n tear. There is a strong odor inside the case when first opened, but its to be expected with brand new storage equipment. Overall I'm very happy with this purchase and plan on picking up a few more soon. FYI, the inside lining in my case is more of a deep burgandy/purple, not like the pic on this site.

                          I purchased a vintage lap steel and this case came closest to what I needed. I had to make some modifications but it worked out very well. I already shipped the instrument in this case via UPS for a cleaning of the pots and check of the pickup. The case withstood the rigors or DPS very well.

                          This case is very durable. I've had this with me for nearly a year now and I've never had any issues with it. My kids step and jump on it a lot when it's shut, but it shows no wear and tear afterwards. I think this is also a universal case because my PRS Tremonti SE sets nicely in and there is still few inches extra pass its headstock. The only issue with this case which I think is not really a big deal is, it's a little heavy. If Gator makes this a little lighter, this would be the perfect electric guitar travel case. I recommend this guitar case to everyone, it won't disappoint you.

                          Bought this case for my new Ibanez RG470NA. A beautiful home for a beautiful axe!Great interior, though it seems a little tight against the bridge when closed. Nice latches and a real lock. Great deal for the money, stronger than others in its range, quality piece.

                            This case is excellent, not just because of a reasonable price but the case protects the guitar for all circumstances. I have used a classic tweed Fender case for years. This case is about half the weight and much stronger. Fits my Strat and Tele perfectly.
