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.

      Don't be led by the title. Read the fine print. It does not fit the Fender Jaguar I bought with it.

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

      These are good hybrid guitar cases, They fit Strat style guitars. Les Paul style guitars are a bit bulky. Check case measurements if possible. As long as the zipper holds out, I will be a happy camper. Don't think you can throw a guitar amp on top of one of these cases. They are lightweight and add a good a bit of extra protection than a gig bag.The only con I gave this case was a non functional. That is because if you own a Les Paul style guitar (I don't), it will not fit.

      If you are looking for a case for your BC Rich Mockingbird don't get this one, it is too small. Otherwise seemed like a quality case.

        Bought 2 of these to transport 2 vintage Les Paul's. 1959 and 1955. In both cases they were too short, forcing the headstock into the end of the case, also there is no neck support, as the neck block is much lower in the case where the neck needs supporting.

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

        I wanted a cheap(inexpensive not crappy) case for my cheap Strat copy. I got it in this case. It is light yet strong enough to protect the contents. My Les Paul, however does not fit. It is snud around the wide part of the body, which is good but It isn't deep enough to get it zipped. I am afraid if I force it my guitar may be damaged. For a Strat, or any other thin bodied guitar this is a great case. I would buy another, if I needed it.

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

        This review is for the Gator GL-ELEC Lightweight Fit-All Electric Guitar Case.
        I purchased one of these with hesitation several months ago, but after I received it and used it, I since have bought 4 more. This case is the "best of all worlds" in that it is light weight, protects the guitar well, and is well-made. (It is not intended for shipping a guitar on an airplane, but then almost nothing is these days.) The price is amazing. I have tried perhaps 4 other materials and companies, and I recommend this highly.

        Gator Lightweight Electric Case

        By Gene Ray

        from Georgia

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

        A good solution for strats or tele's that you carry around a lot. Much better protection than a gig bag and much lighter than a hard case.
        Quality was better than I expected. Plenty of cushioning so that dropping the case shouldn't be a problem.

        Great Strat Case

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

        I bought this for my MIM Stratocaster. The guitar fits perfect...snug and secure. I don't see anything to complain about here. If I had to choose a downside, it would be having to unzip the zipper all the way around the case to open it or the cheesy mesh pocket that they put on the outside of the case - it will rip at some point. I don't need a hard case that scratches up the inside of my closet and car...gigbags don't do anything for me either. This is a great blend of a lightweight but protective case for my guitar. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one again. Fits my strat with the trem arm installed. I like it.
