    Just got this for a Fender CD160 SE12 12-String. It fits perfect and the construction seems solid. Im not sure I would trust it to take on a plane. But, for just hauling around in the car, its more than adequate. Maybe a Guild is a lot different than most 12 strings, but for most I would say the accessory compartment sits under the neck and keeps thing in good and tight.
    Average case with nice size accessory compartment
    Solid plastic case, Good alignment with top and bottom.
    For only a little more than the value case it was worth it.

    I bought this thing for my Guidl D-40 12-string a few years ago. Although the case fits it, that is only barely. Accessory compartment was poorly placed so that the guitar's head rested on the end rather than on the neckrest. The compartment cover also didn't close tightly, and because the top and bottom of the case do not overlap, there's a gap between the hence, all of my picks slipped out of the compartment and then the case itself. There are definitely better products available, for the same price or lower!

      Comments about Gator GC-DREAD-12 Deluxe Dreadnought 6/12-String Guitar Case:

      Per my headline, when I removed this case from the box, I immediately said, "Wow, talk about strong, sturdy and sleek!" My 12 string fit inside this well padded and well protecting case like a glove. It was like this super durable case was made specifically for my guitar. This case is well balanced and comfortable to carry. The closable accesories box inside is roomy and sturdy too. The price is so right and clearly well worth the money. It is so rare these days to get something more than your money's worth. If you value your 12 string (or even your 6 string for that matter), short of a Calzone type case, this particular case is by far the best you can have. Well done, Gator!!

      Comments about Gator GC-DREAD-12 Deluxe Dreadnought 6/12-String Guitar Case:

      Overall I have enjoyed the Gator case. I use it for my electric acoustic 12 string and it fits beautifully with not a lot of play inside. My only real complaint with the case was that it is a bit bulky and heavy. The case weighs 3 times as much as my guitar. So with the guitar inside, it weighs 4 times as much as the guitar by itself. But it is some good protection for my instrument. One of the latches didn't quite line up when I first got it but I think it was dropped in shipment. I straightened it out and it works just fine. Overall a good case.

            Comments about Gator GC-DREAD-12 Deluxe Dreadnought 6/12-String Guitar Case:

            Although a nice looking case, it simply does not accommodate my new Seagull Coastline 12-String guitar {depth-wise}. It's replacement, the Silver Creek Vintage Dreadnought Archtop, does very nicely however.

                I use this case everyday and never get tired of it. I have had my share guitar cases, and they've all failed me in some way. Don't be discouraged by the plastic material it's built with. It's super sturdy. Nice and strong. It can take a beating. It's really heavy once you put your guitar in it though. It's the heaviest one I've had so far. I'm glad it fits my Martin OMCPA and GPCPA, so that's a total plus. Love it. And it's totally affordable.
