A great case if your guitar fits in it. I have a G&L Rampage Tribute Jerry Cantrell model that did not fit in it. It seems to only be suited for normal Fender type strats or guitars that have the same specs as a Fender strat. It does not fit all strat type guitars though as the description says. Measure your overall guitar length and compare it to the specs on Gator's web site before you buy, because if you have to return it you have to pay the shipping costs to do so (which is B.S. in my opinion). Do your research first.
Has good features such as locks and plush interior, but be sure your guitar fits in it!
Built pretty well and rather sturdy, but be sure your guitar fits in it!
A great buy for the price, but be sure your guitar fits in it!

First of all check out the timeline of some of the first/past reviews on this site as they state that they have had their cases for 5 years or so and are just now reviewing the product so...I think somehting may have changed since that time.My Gator (deluxe?-not really) case just arrived today 07/09/2010 and this is more like boarderline sub-economy grade.I have 6 different cases covering several manufacturers and price ranges: Ibanez, Epiphone, 2 different-SKB's, Yamaha and now Gator. My "economy" SKB I just got last week for my thin line accoustic (close to the same price ) is way better in quality than this supposed "Deluxe" Gator case.Dollar for dollar this is the least bang for the buck out of all I own. Also, It does not match the picture provided on the site here 07/09/2010 ( mine does not have the 2 raised outter panels that show running the legnth of the case in the pic?)The hinges and latches are rather flimsy , the outside has alot of give to it, very lightweight overall. Not sure how long this will last if you take it beyond the house. I did call and this is the right case but I am thinking maybe Gator changed somehting without letting anyone know? I will keep it to avoid the hassle of returning but will move my MIM strat to this Gator case and my custom strat to the SKB. I hope this helps and I hope they take the "Deluxe" out of the name.

Fits Like A Glove:

Comments about Gator Deluxe ABS Electric Guitar Case:

I highly recommend this case if your looking for quality at a super price.
Purchased one of these for a new Telecaster and am very pleased, it fits my Tele like a glove. Its ABS build makes it nice and sturdy, and there's no slidding around or flop iin the case. There is plenty of room for spare strings, a strap and any other extras.

Comments about Gator Deluxe ABS Electric Guitar Case:

I have 2 of these. One for my Gibson melody Maker, this is a very thin bodied guitar, and this case works very well without the need for a towel to add extra space.For my Tele it is a bit more snug fit height wise, but in my opinion this case works perfect for both guitars. Very versatile case.

Great Case for my Carvin Strat Copy

By David

from Arkansas

Comments about Gator Deluxe ABS Electric Guitar Case:

Great value for the $$$. Only Thing that could make it a solid 10 would be a lid for the accessory pockets. Other than that it it almost perfect. Fit is excellent. Very light & well constructed.
Only wish it had lid for the accessory compartments.
Light but solid feeling construction
Great value for the $$$.

Good Solid Case

By Michael Spicer

from BF Ohio

Comments about Gator Deluxe ABS Electric Guitar Case:

As my title says, this is a good solid case. I have waited for 3 months since I purchased it to give it a review. It holds my Schecter Hellraiser Special C-1 FR like a glove, couldn't ask for a better fit from any case. Latches and the lock are well built, and work as advertised. Solid and hard plastic outer shell hold up to normal wear and tear. Inside padding is plush and thick. It has an inner compartment for holding your stuff like picks and whammy bar (after you remove it)!!. The compartment could have used a cover, but it still works. Overall, a nice, sturdy case that will last you a long time if handled right. I highly recommended purchasing this case.

Good case!

By Eric Maher

from Northeast

Comments about Gator Deluxe ABS Electric Guitar Case:

This is only a little more than a gig bag, so it's a no-brainer to chose this one.
This is a great basic case. The compartments keep stuff sorted and in place. The lock is a nice feature to keep the kids out of the case.
The shell seems a little light, but if you're not using it for serious travel, it's more than adequate. This is much better protection than the gig bag it replaced.
Great price for a hardshell.

          Comments about Gator Deluxe ABS Electric Guitar Case:

          I needed a case to fit a Gretch Corevette solid body guitar that has a lower bout of 13 inches.

          I wiggled the Gretch into the case the first time to compress the foam and it fits perfectly with no movement. It is a great case for light duty use. The latches are not very strong and I do not think it would stay closed if the case were stressed.

          One Of The Better Cases

          By jtm45

          from Ohio

          Comments about Gator Deluxe ABS Electric Guitar Case:

          This case fits a Parker Fly / Nitefly like a glove. I have a first generation Nitefly I needed a case for, parker cases are hard to get. Fits Strats well too, with about 1/2 gap from body to padded edges. Same with Ibanez (RG). A little short for Ibanez but it works. Headstock embeds into edge padding. Neck support is best I've seen, stabilizes the instrument in the case. Have to say again, best case for a Parker alternative.

            This case is very well made seems durable and the strap is not rubbing on guitar or being pressed into the finish. The balance is good when guitar is in or out. Room for a strap and a tool kit and a few other things. Best money I spent on a case so far great buy

              For the price this is a great case, will it survive falling off your car, probably not. But will it protect your guitar from everyday stuff without breaking the bank, yes. Don't be an idiot, treat your case like a case and not a battering ram.This case perfectly fit an archtop guitar which I was psyched about because finding a case for an archtop that wouldn't crush the guitar but didn't let it slide around either has been next to impossible without taking out a second mortgage. Great case for your cash.

              Bought this for my MichaelKelly Hybrid Electric and it fits well. Got this case on sale and I must say that after looking at other cases this was the best overall case for the money. I put my guitar in the case and I don't have to worry about it. I did have to make my own lid inside to keep things from moving around.

                Comments about Gator Deluxe ABS Electric Guitar Case:

                This case is pretty solid. It fits my 26.5" scale 7-string perfectly! It looks great and is compact, which I love. It is relatively light weight which would make you think that it lacks quality. But it seems to be very sturdy. It has the same durability as the Gator rack cases that I have owned. I would definitely recommend this case.

                The case, for the price, is probably the best I have seen for quite a while. The features include some large compartments for storage, however, my one complaint is that they do not have a cover. Another feature that I like is that the case fits my Fender Telecaster like a glove which, unlike my previous case, keeps it snug as a bug. A great buy, I would do it again!

                Got this as a Christmas Gift from my wife today and it does a fine job for my Jackson DKMG. Solid built and the hardware seems like it will hold up for many years to come. The Jackson is a bit loose (it's a bit smaller than a full-size Stratocaster) and there is about 1" on either side of the guitar body in the case... but no big deal, when you close the case, it doesn't move a bit. There are two good sized compartments on either side of the neck that you could put picks, strings in... there is no cover, but when the case is closed it seals it in.Can't go wrong with this one.

                It does what it has to do. I got this case as a gift from my girl, and was impressed by the rigidity of the plastic molding. I don't trust the locks and the thin ribbon that prevents the top from opening all the way became unglued the 3rd or 4th time I opened it up. Other than that, it is a great case if you use it to throw in your car, I wouldn't want to travel by air with it only because of the locking system. It's cheap, does what I want it to, and fits my tele...I'm satisfied.
