I decided to get one of these for my new ESP Les Paul copy, and it arrived in good condition and well-packed. Took it out and noticed right away the very attractive brown leather-like material covering was smooth and tightly applied, and the hardware seems fine to me, despite several negative reviews for the hardware from others. One thing you need to keep in mind, this case is NOT flight-worthy or shouldn't be considered a heavy-duty road case by any means, but rather a more classy transportation case to and from local gigs, and for a good place for your guitar to live at home. With that said, it does it's job rather well. The interior color (pink), while a bit bright, obviously tries to recall the old Gibson pink plush color from the 1960's that was so prevalent, and the padding is surprisingly good and deep to protect your investment. TWO neck supports cradle the guitar's neck and there's a decent-sized accessory compartment, with an attached full-length silk blanket to cover your guitar before you shut the lid, in a matching pink color (which I may or may not decide to utilize). Looks like it was tailor-made for my guitar, and I couldn't be happier. Bottom line - this is a decent-quality case that suits my needs well, and IMHO is much better quality and fit than higher-priced cases available for Les Paul-type guitars. A bit pricey, but I like it much better than the rectangular-style cases, and my guitar fits like a glove inside with no chance of moving or being damaged. Works for me, and I would highly recommend this case to anyone.

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.

        Comments about Gator GW-LPS Guitar Case for Single Cutaway Electric Guitars:

        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.

        Comments about Gator GW-LPS Guitar Case for Single Cutaway Electric Guitars:

        This is a good case as long as these issues don't concern you:
        1. My Gibson LP slides around inside the case. I find this surprising as this is a repro Lifton case. To secure the guitar inside the case, you have to pack it out with t-shirts or towels. Huh?
        2. The latches feel flimsy. I'm not sure how much abuse these could withstand. I have an ESP case for a different guitar, and the latches on that are solid as are the latches on my OEM Gibson case.

        I think that Gator have sized this case to accommodate a bunch of different guitars, like Epiphone LPs and other single cutaway guitars. This makes sense for Gator but not for Gibson LP customers.

        The color is attractive. The pink interior is wild. The plywood feels solid. The tolex is well applied.

        In the end, I've kept the case as I only need it to transport my LP around in my car. I wouldn't be happy using this as a touring case. This really is a poseur's case. :)

        Comments about Gator GW-LPS Guitar Case for Single Cutaway Electric Guitars:

        I bought this case for a LP Studio and the fit is excellent. I would rate the protection as adequate. I don't ever plan to travel with this case, so it suits my needs just fine. Many reviews talk about loose latches. I found them to be fine. The only issue I have is when you close the top, the bottom curve is slightly mis-aligned, so you have to give it a little nudge. Once it is aligned it is fine. The interior magenta is good looking and the shroud fits properly. Overall, I like the case very much, BUT if I were a working musician and travelling with my guitar, I would opt for something more protective.

        Looks great! Cheap Latches!

        from California

        Comments about Gator GW-LPS Guitar Case for Single Cutaway Electric Guitars:

        I bought this case for my Epi '56 edition Gold Top Les Paul. The guitar barely fits because the Epiphone headstock is so long. The case looks really nice, but the quality is just OK. On the positive side, the internal compartment is pretty good size. The padding on the inside under the guitar is a bit better than that of the Epiphone case and the exterior of the case looks well made. On the negative side, the latches are really cheap... Really cheap! The Pink interior may not be to everyone's taste, but it does capture the vintage look that Gator was going for. Overall, the case does look cool! I have several Epiphone guitars and the epiphone cases and I thought this time I'd try something different. Next time I'll probably go with the Epiphone case, you can't beat them for the money. If you want a nice looking case and the loose, rattling latches don't bother you, this case is great. If you want something to bang around at gigs that fits your guitar right, save the thirty bucks and get the Epiphone case!

              This case has great cosmetic appeal to me yet it should have two more latches like a Gibson or a Silver Creek version. I have several other Gator cases that I am pleased with so it is a good product over-all, I am going to put more latches on this case.

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.

                                      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!!!

                                              Just got this case, a couple of days ago and I love it. It's well put together I like the way it look especially the lining. Fits my epiphone '56 reissue les paul with added bigsby just perfectly.

                                                Purchased this for a tenor guitar. Removed all of the padding and have a nice snug fit for the guitar. Cannot find cases specifically for tenor guitars and this one works great.
