            Comments about Gator GWE-Acou-3/4 Hardshell 3/4-Size Acoustic Guitar Case:

            I bought this case because I recently bought a La Patrie Motif, an excellent guitar, and I saw the reviews said the case fit the guitar perfectly. That isn't the case. When I first received the case I was thrilled, it was sturdy, well-constructed, what have you. When I put my La Patrie into the case is when the problems arose. It was a terribly tight fit and since the La Patrie is wider at the base the case wouldn't close all the way. I had to put some books at the base of the case and used a clamp to remold the case to fit my guitar.Everything else was great about the case, just wish it was a little wider to accommodate wider 3/4th sized guitars.

            Too small for Oscar

            I ordered the Gator GWE-Acou-3/4 Hardshell 3/4-Size Acoustic Guitar Case and while pleased with the quality it did not fit my Oscar Schmidt 3/4 size dread. It would be helpfull if you would include the dimentions of your cases in the descriptions. This case is too small for the Oscar Schmidt 3/4 size dread. Don't order it for that guitar as it is expensive shipping to return it.

            Comments about Gator GWE-Acou-3/4 Hardshell 3/4-Size Acoustic Guitar Case:

            Th Gator GWE-Acou-3/4 Hardshell 3/4-Size Acoustic Guitar Case seems to be a decent value in a imported hard case. Reading the dimensions, it looked like it just might fit my Martin 0-17: the body dimensions are exactly right. Unfortunately, it is 1/2" too short. Martin is the only distributor of 0 size cases, and theirs are expensive. It would have made business sense to make this case fit an 0, perhaps, but the import case people are not thinking of less-common guitars, I guess. I have kept the case because I build guitars, and it will fit a tenor guitar I have plans for.

              I recently found a small parlor guitar similar to early instruments, the Ibanez AVN3 and this case fits it nearly perfectly. I bought an open box and it was untouched in it's plastic bag, absolutely new. My third case from Musicians Friend and I couldn't be more pleased!

                    This case beats any case I have had for a musical instrument. I have a Cordoba Cadete 3/4 size classical guitar and it's an absolute prefect fit. I purchased the case mostly to keep my guitar from drying out and cracking in my very dry house. Therefore; I bought two of Cordoba's Humipods and there is just the right amount of room for them. One was installed just above the storage box on the bottom of the case and the other upright just above the heal of the guitar. They install with Velcro, so I used my beard trimmer to remove the plush lining where the Velcro went and they work perfectly. I couldn't be happier with my new case. I'm relatively new to guitar, but I build ukuleles as a hobby, so I am very familiar with the needs of an instrument case. Also the price is great too. That's a real plus in my book.

                    Thanks to customer service rep., Chris, this was the perfect choice for my son's guitar. He was extremely informative and helpful in guiding me through the correct purchase for what my son needed. This case offers great protection as my Middle School son carries this case to and from school on an overcrowded bus daily. It is very well constructed inside and out. Strong hard shell and plush lining fits guitar like a glove. Includes ample storage area with lid inside (under neck) for strings, pics, tuner. Well worth the cost. I will purchase a full size case when he moves up to a full size guitar without hesitation from this company and brand. Couldn't be more pleased. Thank you.

                    The GWE 3/4 case is well constructed, stylish and offers very good protection . It is a great deal for the price. I bought this case for a WG-36 guitar. Because the company does list the complete dimensions( interior & exterior ) for this case, I was able to get a great fit. Some companies don't list their dimensions. Just another reason why you should consider the GWE case. All considered, "You Can't Go Wrong" !!!

                      I bought this case in California then traveled home to Texas. By the time I got home one of the locks was busted. I play four to five nights a week and take good care of my equiptment. However this case could not keep up. I am looking for a new case right now because only two of the case locks work properly. The other ones are broken or busted off. Also do not stack anything on this case or even think you could sit on it. The case does not handle any weight at all. It will cave in (Mine has not but I can just tell from pushing down on the case.)

                      I was looking for a hardshell case for my Baby Taylor 3/4 size guitar, since they only offer a gigbag. The Gator case arrived in only three days and looks great inside and out, and the price was very affordable. I was worried that a generic case would not fit, but the Gator case works very well. The baby Taylor is a little shorter than the inside case size but fits snugly in the upper bout. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

                      A very sound case

                      I've had one of these for about 9 months. It fits my La Patrie "Motif" (a 3/4 sized classical)perfectly. This is a very sound case, but not worthy of being checked as cargo on a flight. I would have no problem if this was dropped from a few feet, but I doubt it would stand up as checked baggage. Only flaw is that part of the stitching on the bottom of the case had come undone prior to me receiving it. It was about 3 stitches long, but it doesn't compromise the case.

                      This appears to be about the only hard shell case available for a 3/4 sized acoustic guitar. This fits my La Petrie like a glove. The construction is excellent, and I would have no hesitation shipping this on a plane. I think it would fit into an overhead bin, but it would probably take up an entire compartment.I will not baby this case because it's rugged. These very rarely leave my house, but when they do, I don't baby the cases and expect them to withstand airlines.Final note: My wife thought it was cute because of its smaller size.

                      Minus the one small issue with the lock, I love this case. It's tough, durable, and fits my Squire 3/4 perfectly.
                      I gave it a 10, but really outside of fitting my 3/4 acoustic what can I really say.
                      The coushining it great. When I carry it around I don't feel my guitar bouncing around due to poor design.
                      It's a really sturdy case; from the shell down to the hardwear holding her together. My only complaint is that the lock...it doesn't work. But that's not too a big a deal for me.
                      I've paid more for worse, and this is an amazing value at the price. You really can't beat that.
