This is a good case for the money, its not a flight ready case or anything but for this price range its not supposed to be. its meant for normal wear and tear hauling to and from gigs, and it fulfills that perfectly. i wouldnt have any problem taking my 72 tele deluxe on the road in this case, it's very sturdy and the plush and foam cushioning inside it is wonderful. the ONLY reason i gave it a 4 on quality was for superficial reasons. i got the tweed one and there are a couple of spots where a thread or two is starting to come out of the weave. also along the bottom rim where the cloth overlaps and is glued down, it's not glued very strongly and easily peels up for about a half inch along the edge, it would have been much better to stitch it down i think, but oh well. like i said the only problems i have had are PURELY superficial. i haven't found anything wrong with this case that has hindered it's functionality in any way.one thing i would like to point out is that this thing is light! i was really suprised when i picked it up for the first time, Gator really did a good job and cutting down on weight without cutting down protection.bottom line, this is a top notch case for its' price category, and if you're looking for something just to keep the normal daily wear and tear off of your guitar, this case will do it.

I had this case for 1 week and it started coming apart around the edges of the upper half. And it scuffs way to easily. I've had a different case for 3 years with minimal breaks in the vinyl. This one already has more after 2 weeks of owning it. I wouldn't recommend this case to anyone.

Comments about Gator GWE-Elec Hardshell Electric Guitar Case:

Better than a gig bag and good value for the price. There are more secure, solid hard cases out there but this was the best of the entry level hard cases. My PRS S2 Custom 22 Semi-Hollow fit perfectly. Nice and snug. Guitar doesn't move around in it which I like. The case does not have very thick padding nor is the exterior very thick and that makes for a light case and that combined with my light guitar makes it easy to carry. One downside which others have mentioned is since the case is not very wide it's not very stable and will tip over if you even brush against it. Other than that it does the job. I'm not a gigging musician so I just needed more solid protection than the PRS gig bag that came with the guitar for storage at home. If I was a gigging musician I may go for a more solid hard case.

Musician's friend was rock solid as usual with fast shipping, low price and safe packaging.

I'm adding a picture of my PRS S2 guitar in the case. The truss rod cover, strap buttons and the ivory pickup rings are non-stock.

      After returning two musicians gear cases for poor workmanship this Gator case for a few $s more did the trick.

        I got this for my PRS SE Custom 24. Fits perfectly and seems more than sturdy enough as long as you're not abusing it.

        It is a perfect product for a small guitar, but nor for a gibson epiphone junior, maybe even any gibson. It is too small inside for it.

                      Received this case as a gift to carry my Les Paul in. A Les Paul will not fit into this case. I'll return it for another case, but I hate to. This is a great looking case and a great value for the money.

                      Called to confirm this would fit a Fender Jaguar. It is about 2" to short and 1" to narrow. Oh well will just keep it for a Stratt for storage at home...not worth the time to exchange.
