I am happy with the purchase.
I purchased this case to replace the SKB-style case that came with my Fender American Std. Telecaster. That guitar was damaged inside the factory-issued case when the case fell off my equipment dolly. The Gator case should protect my guitar far better than Fender's molded plastic cases. It also has the added benefit of not damaging the interior of my car like hardshell cases usually do.
For a soft case, these are pretty nice. Just don't expect the protection a quality hardshell case would provide. These are much nicer than the cheaper gig bags.
For the price, I would buy one for my other guitars if I needed to.

I recently purchased a Limited Edition Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar Pelham Blue from Musician's Friend. I used MF's "Bag - Case" assistant locator to assist in selecting the right Case for my new Les Paul...from the discription of this case, I concluded that this would be the case for me. NOT!!! Either the butt stock or the head will not fit, depending on which end you start with, and it will only fit if one pushed the bottom in first amd then applies gentle pressure until the head stock goes in at an angle not intended to brace the neck. I'm ticked off (I cannot use the strong languge I wish to use). No other way to say it. No kinder way either. Depending on the quality of guitar, and size, I would only recommend the GL-ELEC Lightweight Fit-All Electric Guitar Case upon the foreknowledge of the size and the price of the guitar...have I mentioned that the sides are not structured, nor constructed, so as to protect the guitar? Or, the fact that the zipper has malfunctioned prior to being purchased, and that it is notible by the fraying on one of its edges? Not happy at all.

I have to travel 30 miles round trip to get my mail...I am very selective of items I purchase. 1st the trip to pick it up, then if its not right, the trip to take it back...coupled with another series of trips to make in order to get the right item...I am not a happy camper.

Comments about Gator GL-ELEC Lightweight Fit-All Electric Guitar Case:

I read quite a number of reviews prior to picking this up. With the description and the reviews, I thought this would be ok as a gig bag with my Fender Strat with the Dimarzio Clip-Lok strap. The specs in the MF product page are accurate. Much more accurate than the specs on the Gator Cases page. I had the body total length closer to 19" though, with the all the bout width's and headstock width closer to 12.5" .

I put the Strat in and the top strap button on the left horn slightly did not fit in the body area (I attribute that to the Clip-Lok strap pieces). With some careful manipulation (a spoon and tremolo arm), I was able to loosen the foam around the strap button without destroying the plush so it would fit. I tried it with another guitar, a Ibanez JS1000 with a Dimarzio Clip-Lok which fit nicely (with the top strap button being a bit over).

With that being said and all the sizing determined, the case is great. Its light and durable with the EPS foam providing the extra protection. I wanted something that was more like a gig bag with some extra protection and this case delivers that. There are no backpack type straps on the case, but the shoulder strap seems to work fine.

So it does deliver as a good case, but it is definitely NOT fit-all. I would just measure your guitar out prior to picking this up and match it up with the specs section in the Musician's Friend product page. If your guitar matches up then you should be good.

    Comments about Gator GL-ELEC Lightweight Fit-All Electric Guitar Case:

    I ended up switching out my Strat case for the G&L. The Strat fits nicely in the Gator case. I don't believe any of the G&L guitars will fit in this case, even though the advertisement states one size fits all. A great case at a good price, just does't fit G&L guitars.

    Nice case, but the "Case Finder" was wrong! Paired my new guitar purchase with this case - but didn't fit! Had to send it back ;-( NOT the case's fault…

        After buying a Gator case when I got a Les Paul it was a no brainer to buy one for my Telecaster. The GL-ELEC fits a CV Telecaster perfectly, almost like it was made just for it. I love Gator cases because they are not as heavy as hard shell cases but in my opinion they are just as sturdy and give as much if not more protection. They are very well made and I got this one on sale so what's not to like? I could go on and on but the bottom line is that if you have a Telecaster then BUY THIS CASE :)

        Comments about Gator GL-ELEC Lightweight Fit-All Electric Guitar Case:

        I have more than one Gator case and I like the quality. This case is a nice everyday case and will provide protection with lightweight handling. I read a few more reviews and have to agree that if you have a Les Paul Style guitar, this may not be the best fit. My Dean EVO squeezes into the body area and is extremely snug. It will fit, but a 1/2 inch more room would be better. I will keep this case as it will work for what I need, but I think others would be inclined to return it due to the fit for this style guitar.

            This case was perfect for my needs. I have a Vintage Charvel LS-1 that I had a hard time finding a case for. It fit perfectly in this case and I like how it works like a gig bag but has the protection of a hard case. It's well made and looks great.

              I bought this for my son. He's a drummer but he's always using my guitars to write music. I bought him a Fender Tele that didn't come with a case. This was a great case that fit perfectly at a reasonable price. It cradles the guitar nicely and keeps it motionless when carried.

                Looks like it's going to be just fine. Lighter than the hard case, but seems to be rugged enough for carrying from gig to gig. Wouldn't trust it on a plane, or even in someone else's hands on a tour bus, but that's not really what it was built for. The neat thing is I can lay it over my pedal board in the back of the car and because it's rather soft it doesn't cause any grief to the pedals. My only caveat is that I've only used it on a few gigs so far, but I suspect it'll hold up well - good construction and build quality.

                  I own several of these guitar and bass cases and use them for local gigging. I have never had a zipper or stitching problem. They protect my instruments very well and don't scuff up and tear the vinyl covering of other hard cases. It is definitely an upgrade from gig bags and does about as good a job as a standard (non-ATA) hardshell case.
