    Comments about Gator GW-LPS Laminated Wood Case:

    I am the original owner of a 1975 Les Paul Custom. The case that came with the guitar has served me well, but is pretty beat up after years of travel and use. I always kept using that case out of a sort of redneck pride seeing the old beat up case. It had gotten to the point that I started to worry about my guitar falling through the back of the case. Time for a replacement.

    I did some research and settled on the Gator guitar case. I am very glad I did. The case is sturdy and fits my Les Paul almost as perfectly as my original Gibson case keeping the guitar steady in the case without squeezing it too much.

    The only thing (and it is very minor) is that the storage compartment door hinge, which is cloth, is not as firm as the Gibson case. Still it is very usable and has ample storage.

    Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase. A firmer storage door hinge would move my rating to a 5 Star.

    Comments about Gator GW-LPS Laminated Wood Case:

    I ordered a Les Paul case from Musician's Friend about two years ago and my son absolutely loved it. He ended up selling it with a guitar, though, so this year he asked for another one exactly like it. I had no trouble finding it on their website, and it was cheaper than the competitors. The case arrived in a big, well-packed box, earlier than expected, and my son opened it on Christmas morning. I had a great experience dealing with this company. No issues at all!

      Comments about Gator GW-LPS Laminated Wood Case:

      I was looking at this case, and others like it, for a while. For features, reputation of quality, and price - I pulled the trigger on this one. I have a '95 Epiphone Les Paul Standard with a Bigsby (B700) installed. The guitar fits in the case just fine, with plenty of padding on the bottom and top of the case. The case closes and latches without any problems. Some LP style cases can be a very tight fit for the headstock. This one has plenty of room, some to spare, for the longer Epiphone style headstocks. The guitars body is secure and snug in the bottom section.

      This case is great for local gigs and practice trips but I would not take it on a plane or heavy gigging. This is not a flight-case, don't expect it to be. It is leaps and bounds better than any gig bag and will protect your instrument from bumps and collisions while staying safe inside. The construction and quality is comparable to the standard Gibson USA or Epiphone cases.

      Musicians Friend shipping was CRAZY fast! If it is in stock, they will get it to your door as quick as possible. Always great service!

      Not what I have come to expect from Gator quality

      Comments about Gator GW-LPS Laminated Wood Case:


      It is tolex covered wood (of sorts) and somewhat faux fur lined, with a typical neck compartment. It features the typical single lock clamps, which are of marginal quality. Mine actually wouldn't line up. Tolex was pretty lumpy, marginal quality control...an overall disappointment. I have MG cases that are MUCH better.

      Epiphone LP Special II Case

      By bluaxe1

      from Jacksonville, FL

      Comments about Gator GW-LPS Laminated Wood Case:

      For anyone having a hard time finding a LP case not too short, long, wide, deep, poorly constructed, or any other problem. This may be a good choice.The LP Special will sit firmly in depth, and in the perimeter of this case without having to force the guitar to fit, or add additional foam to fill gap's. The storage area is normal for an LP case, { tuner, metronome, and anything I can fit }. Gator provides a very good product, and my case came with everything as stated in the description, including the measurements. As far as price, I have paid less for a case, though it came warped, and useless. Hope this helps!

      Awesome

      Comments about Gator GW-LPS Laminated Wood Case:

      Really great case. Fits like a glove, and has all the great features of a gator case. If you have a les paul, look no further. Don't worry if the headstock is a little tight. I think there is a little outcropping to make sure the neck doesn't bob up and down during transport.

      Great Case, Worth the Buy

      Comments about Gator GW-LPS Laminated Wood Case:

      This case has served me well. I take it to school every day, and I've taken it to professional festivals, and many concerts. Never once has it failed to keep my baby safe. It looks a little flimsy, and a couple of my latches feel wierd, but it still holds fine. I would reccomend this case to anyone who just needs a simple case to protect their guitar.
