OK - it's a brown case with a pink (some say magenta?) lining and that cloth (veil?) attached to drape over your guitar. So it isn't black like all your other cases and the loud interior amuses. The handle is well padded and this is a decent local use hard case. Wouldn't trust it as airline baggage!
Inside, there is a pronounced hump to compensate for a Les Paul's tilt-back neck angle. If you have a flatter instrument like a Junior, Special or bolt-neck Epi then the support will be mostly at the neck. It's OK and I'll stuff my case rag under the tail end of the body on my LesCaster to fill the gap.
The brass plated latches are noticeably thiner than any other case I have. It seems like you could bend them with your fingers. Still, I couldn't - and they align and latch fine. Better hardware would be a minor upgrade and improve your reputation Gator (if you read these reviews).
This case was on my MF Wish List for a while. When I got an additional discount, the time was right to purchase. Glad I did.

I was surprised at the low quality of the case. I received the first one and it had a tear on the end of it. Musicians Friend was very good at returning and sending a new one. However the second one came with more tears than the first. Also the material inside isn't place well and the locks are very low quality. Musicians Friend set up the return of second and I switched brands.

      I was really disappointed in the quality of the case due to the fact that the second time that I went to use it the rear latch fell off.

        How 70's can you get. A brown guitar case with magenta shag carpet! Love it!! Everyone who looks at this case remarks on the quality and the colors. Fits my Les Paul Tribute like a glove. Its worth buying one as a conversation piece.

                    I wish you could buy a case like this for every guitar. Not only is it built like a tank, it's build quality and materials are second to none. It's even a better looking color than it used to be. Now it looks like a well-oiled baseball glove instead of the pale tan that it used to be.

                      2014 Epiphone LP Standard Plus Pro didn't fit well. Body didn't rest in the case properly, neck didn't get support.

                          Great value, but the case looks a little cheesy with the pink veil and interior. Looks a lot like what it is: a knock-off of earlier cases. However, the case is a nice fit for my LP Studio and for one-hundred bills I'm happy. Latches seem fine (tho I've heard complaints), and the interior lining of the case seems as tho it may not hold up in years to come. I'd still recommend this case for the price.

                            The quality of construction is what you would expect. Very good. The colors really set it apart. Not you every day typical black color. The magenta interior is NOT pink. It is a true magenta color. Looks like the cases of my youth from 50-60 years ago. Glad I choose this one as my Epiphone Les Paul fits snugly inside like it was made for it. Good hardware. Comfortable handle. Feels quite sturdy and looks GREAT!!!
