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 have a Korean brand Chinese made S101 dreadnought 12-string. Well made. Sounds great and plays great. Searched internet for best hard shell guitar case and found Gator. Decided to buy this over a gig bag for better protection when playing out. Unfortunately, the inside dimensions of the case, particularly the head stock section were not as specified.

PROS: This case is really well built and sturdy. Inside is plush and well constructed.

CONS: It seems a bit too tight but will be sufficient because I don't travel with this guitar often. Most of the time it is sitting in its stand. I'm afraid if I left it in this case too long the neck would bow. I actually have to place the guitar in the case head stock first to even get it in. Once in it is really tight. I really wonder if Gator's inside case dimensions include the padding?

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

      Looking to get a case for a Carlo Robelli 12 string. The case had the correct width and length but the shape of the lower bout still did not fit. The curves of the low bout did not match. Left the guitar sitting forward in the case jamming the headstock. So I had the measurements correct but did not see the shape as being an issue. My girl friend needed a new case for her dreadnot, it fit so I gave it to her.

          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.

                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.
