Okay, I originally bought this to fit a Danelectro 12 string, which it didn't fit. Now I am going to buy an SG and I ended up buying the case again. I took my other guitars just to see what fits and what doesn't. Here are the results:
Danelectro 12 string DOES NOT fit.
Epiphone Les Paul DOES NOT fit.
Fender Stratocaster DOES NOT fit.
Fender Telecaster DOES fit.
I was surprised when I stuck the Tele in the case. It's not a perfect piston fit, but is totally useable if you are in love with this case, or if you don't care for the rectangular cases. There is just a little side to side body wiggle, and the wedge in the headstock area offers a little resistance when closing the case. This is my fifth Gator guitar case. I have never had any issues with any of them.

Unfortunately, this case came with three different issues. For one, I noticed the first time I opened it that the lining on the inside was peeling off. Second, it was advertised as having a security system but came with no keys or anything else to make the case locked. Third, the "Gator" label was upside-down from how it was pictured. This case might be functional, but I returned it immediately after seeing all of the issues.

Comments about Gator GW-SGS Traditional Laminated SGS Solid Guitar Style Guitar Wood Case:

Case came today. SG fits perfectly. Doesn't seem to move around so that is good. Exterior covering looks nice. The "magenta" interior is more of a "Barbie Hot Pink". I was shocked, but it looks okay with the Ebony Gibson SG. :)

    Comments about Gator GW-SGS Traditional Laminated SGS Solid Guitar Style Guitar Wood Case:

    I bought this case because the dimensions matched my Danelectro 12SDC 12 string perfectly. Unfortunately, the "waist" of an SG is in a different location than the waist of my Danelectro, rendering it unusable for my intentions. So, if you have an SG, go for it. But if you have a Danelectro DC or 12 string, forget about it. I found a good home for my 12 string with the Gator GW Electric TW-GC case. It fits a little snug on the waist, but I think it will loosen up with time.

    Comments about Gator GW-SGS Traditional Laminated SGS Solid Guitar Style Guitar Wood Case:

    This is a great looking case that fits my Gibson SG perfectly. Yes, the interior is hot pink, but that just gives it a little panache. The only problem I've found is that the latches do not close very tightly. They also wiggle around just a little bit, as Jerry Lee would say. Two of the hooks can almost be undone without even releasing the tension tab. I've travelled a couple times with it and all is well but I was very careful with it so there were no unexpected ejections of my guitar onto the ground. If I hadn't been in a hurry I might have returned it but I had also tried out two others and got a little impatient. Much better case than any I tried, and it was on sale. I recommend this, especially if you get it (on sale) but watch the latches.

        Compares to a Gibson case for a Les Paul I own. Fit my SG perfectly. Glad I chose this brand & case. Musician's Friend is batting a thousand with me.

                        This case fits my Gibson SG perfectly. I have three Gibson SGs and wanted each of the three cases to be different so I could tell a specific guitar by looking at the case. Ordered the Epiphone case first but it did NOT fit properly, sent it back and ordered this one. In this instance magenta = Pink. Have magenta on a color inkjet printer and it is darker than the color on the case. Not thrilled about interior color but overall very pleased with the case, great fit, sturdy and looks to be quality built. If you can get over the "Pink" interior then this is a very good choice at a good price.
