Good case, nothings special

Comments about Gator GW-Extreme Guitar Case:

I got this case a while ago due to the fact that I could not find a case for my guitar... and they didn't even make one for it. Anyways, the case comes with a ton of peices specifically made for whatever guitar you have, whether it be the Gibson Flying V or a Jackson Kelly, chances are theres peices of foam in there. Even if your guitar doesn't have it's own set of foam, you can mix and match the pieces (as I did) and it'll work fine. The case is somewhat huge and theres a nice compartment in there to store your cables and such. I'd get a molded case for your guitar if there is one, though, unless you can buy this any cheaper.


Not a good case

Comments about Gator GW-Extreme Guitar Case:

Nearly a year ago, my kids gave me a gift certificate for a "brick and mortar" music store. (I wish the kids had realized that I buy everything at Musicians Friend...). The gift card has been sitting unused, so today I visited the store, looking for a decent hard case for a Fernandes Vector Elite (a flying V shaped guitar). In the store, the only brand that would fit is this Gator monstrosity. I used the card to buy the case, but tomorrow I intend to return it. I'm very picky about my guitars....even a lowly Fernandes....and this case just doesn't get it. The foam blocks are as hard as bricks and are covered with a tricot material that has no soft feel at all. The case weighs a ton and is huuuge. You could park a VW bus inside the bowels of that monster. The latches are cheap quality - believe it - and when I got home (a short 20 minute ride direct from the music store), I discovered that one of them was already falling apart. I obviously overlooked that issue in the store. If you need a case for your radical-shaped guitar, save yourself the time, $$ and trouble. Coffin cases offer much higher quality.Bottom line, Gator's idea isn't bad for a jigsaw-puzzle-one-size-fits-all case, but the execution is really bad. They call it the GW-Extreme, but the most extreme thing about this case is its extreme poor quality.


It broke after 6 months

Comments about Gator GW-Extreme Guitar Case:

I bought this for my fender jaguar (very few cases fit it) and thought it was great... at first, i think the Velcro pads are fine, they don't really move on me, but maybe that's just me. the case is extremely big and heavy, which is a problem for me because i walk to school with it. but the area I'm most frustrated in is the fact that the latch had striped threads so eventually the latch popped off as well as the screws and i lost a screw and can't put the other one back in. I sent an email to gator because this should be under the warranty, but they're taking a long time to respond. overall, just get a different case.


Low Quality

Comments about Gator GW-Extreme Guitar Case:

Good idea, bad execution. The case is a mess and I would not trust my guitar in it. The velcro pc are unstable. The whole thing is a waste of money. You would be better off buying a generic case and customizing it yourself. Don't waste your time with this one.

Comments about Gator GW-Extreme Guitar Case:

Straight to the point this will not effectively protect the headstock point nor the upper wing tip of the Jackson rr series. Out of the all the foam brand specific pieces that were included only three were for the rr1. Bottom line I did not want to trust it in my trunk or at a gig couple of bumps few turns and the point of the guitar would be dinged. Instead of sending thiry pieces of foam for a multitude of guitars they should give you the option to pick the kit for your guitar instead.


don't expect much

Comments about Gator GW-Extreme Guitar Case:

I bought this for a fender strat/tele doubleneck I built, thus the need for a large custom case. I expected to need to rip out the insides to put in foam to make it perfect, but not as a necessity. I would not trust this for more than in-home storage - and I'll be very careful even at that. Buy a blemished like I did, it's crap anyway and you'll save a few bucks.

Comments about Gator GW-Extreme Guitar Case:

If you have a hard-to-fit guitar, this may be the answer to your problems. It's a well-built, plywood, oversized case designed for larger, angular instruments like Flying Vs and BC Richs. I bought it for an ESP XTone PC-1, which is a very difficult guitar to fit (it's asymmetrical, any the factory case is thin). The case comes with a large set of curved and angular plush-covered foam blocks that fit inside the case with velcro to hold the guitar snugly. The blocks are designed for particular guitars, but with a little experimentation I was able to find a set of blocks that fit the ESP very well. Considering the cost of custom cases, the Gator Extreme is an incredible value for the money. I expect to own it as long as I own the guitar.

Comments about Gator GW-Extreme Guitar Case:

I got this case for my custom Jackson RR-24, and I wasn't very impressed. The 10 million foam cut-outs are a creative idea, but the velcro isnt that sticky and the parts move around alot in the case. I had to get another piece of foam from carpet store and mold it to my V shape. Not a terrible value, but I wouldn't trust it straight out of the box.


Solid Case

Comments about Gator GW-Extreme Guitar Case:

I bought this case for my ESP LTD V-500 because ESP does not offer one. There is a line of velcro along the inside edge of the case where the included velcro foam pieces (which are guitar specific) are placed to hold the guitar. I only used the two side pieces and an included cloth strap to block off the remaining velcro in the back because the velcro pieces for the corners are apparently for a Gibson Flying V. I ended up using one of the two corner pieces to help protect the headstock, even though it didn't really need it. Overall the guitar fits the case very well and I'm happy with it. My only complaint is that it was sent to me single boxed and got marked up a bit in transit.
