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.

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.

    The case is excellent. It just doesn't fit my Ibanez 7 string. It's about 3 inches too short. Returning tomorrow.

      Comments about Gator GWE-Elec Hardshell Electric Guitar Case:

      Bought this case for my MIM Special Edition Fender Strat and its a perfect fit. There's some give to the top and bottom but its a solid alternative to a soft gig bag and much better protection for only a little more. I really like the lid over the accessory compartment too. Keeps all the little stuff from bouncing around and dinging up your axe. They also have a foam pad thats sandwiched between the outer shell and the inner liner and runs the full length of the neck. This holds the guitar firmly in the neck support saddle. No movement at all. Gator is pretty optimistic calling this "road ready" though. If I expected to have roadies or airport personnel handling this I'd definitely go for something sturdier like ABS. Otherwise a great case at this price point and worth every penny

          Comments about Gator GWE-Elec Hardshell Electric Guitar Case:

          The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that it needs more feet on the back edge. Tips over very easily. But for storage and light duty transportation, it's just fine. Fits my Strat-style project guitar like a glove.

              I am not a professional musician, but I am an experienced guitarist. I do most of my playing at home. This case is perfect for me, because it protects my guitar from our grand kids when they are visiting. It's not super sturdy, but for me, it is perfect, mainly because it is compact and light. I'm sure that pro musicians who are on the road a lot would need something sturdier.

                I have not quite enough guitars and even less cases. This is an excellent value for a Strat or Tele. I don't think the latches are the greatest but at this price point I didn't expect them to be great. It's a great storage case as well as a case for short trip to jam with and it keeps the guitar off of the wall hanger.

                  This case fit my PRS SANTANA like a glove!
                  It is compact,light,and yet decent protection for the AXE.
                  I would NOT throw it around or use it as sole protection for shipping.
                  WELL worth the money though. TKS, Mike
