      Comments about Gator GWE-CLASSIC Hardshell Classical Wood Guitar Case:

      I think it's important to note that I feel this is a well made and good looking guitar case. Unfortunately the dimensions are confounded by the shape of the case and that's the source of my discontent... I bought a generic case from Musician's Friend for a guitar I made about a year ago. It was beautifully made and the guitar (OM size) fit perfectly. A few months ago I ordered a custom built OM sized guitar from the same luthier that Helped me build my earlier guitar. So I ordered the same case, but they were out of stock so I called in to get some advice and out of the several cases, this is the one that seemed to be the best choice considering size, look, and price. When I received the case it looked great, but the new guitar was a tight fit across the upper bout and so too was my "older" guitar... Both guitars fit the other case perfectly. I measured the inside dimensions of the Gator case and they were accurate so in theory it should have worked, but the problem is the slope of the upper bout is much steeper on the gator case and that is the impingement. I fully realize the type of this is for "classical" guitars, but so to is my original... So the upshot here is that while it seems to be a nice case, the dimensions are somewhat misleading in comparison to other guitar case types.

      Comments about Gator GWE-CLASSIC Hardshell Classical Wood Guitar Case:

      I bought this case with the hopes that it would fit a deep body classical guitar that I am making for a client. It does and that makes me very happy! I am a big fan of the Musician's Friend Twill covered classical guitar case, now I am a fan of this Gator case and will buy more in the future.

          Comments about Gator GWE-CLASSIC Hardshell Classical Wood Guitar Case:

          I was very pleased that Musician's Friend was able to locate a hard shell case for my Framus Gaucho. There were not many Gaucho's made in the 1960's. The guitar had been in a flimsy case for at least 30 years. It is in very good condition, and will stay that way for many years to come. Thanks!

          Comments about Gator GWE-CLASSIC Hardshell Classical Wood Guitar Case:

          I bought this case for my new Ibanez AEG10NII Nylon String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar but unfortunately it didn't fit so I had to return it and buy the recommended Ibanez case. Honestly, I liked this case better. Next time I'll make sure to get the measurements of guitar & case before I order. Gator cases are excellent and I own quite a few. I prefer them to most other brands and they cost less!

          Comments about Gator GWE-CLASSIC Hardshell Classical Wood Guitar Case:

          This is the 3rd classical case from MF. The first 2 were too small for a standard classical. This is the first to fit, and the most poorly constructed. It's just about weightless. The lid banding feels like it's cardboard or flimsy plastic. The handle is very poor and probably won't last. I recommend picking the case up gently. There are only 3 latches. The ribbon between the case & lid is put in twisted. Not a cheap price either. It looks nice, and it fits, so I kept it.
