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.

    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

      Great Fit and Good Value case for your Strat or Tele styled Guitars....Perhaps not for Heavy Gig use, but let's be real, We're not all Touring Musicians. Much lighter weight than the overpriced Fender product, but still offers excellent protection.

      Comments about Gator GWE-Elec Hardshell Electric Guitar Case:

      Took a chance and bought this for my Tele after having just a gig bag for the last dozen years or so. Installed a custom Warmoth neck for it so I wanted more protection. Although lightweight for a hardshell case, it is a great 'next step up' from the gig bag. What I really dig is how compact the case is. The Tele takes up the whole case and fits perfectly, with no extra wasted room. Mainly bought it to keep the dust off, but was so happy with it, I am going to get another soon for my Big Apple Strat, which fit in the case perfectly as well. Note: Not for flight use or tossing around! A great bargain for those that keep their axes at home, or for placing in the car to head out for jams. Gave it 4 stars for being what it is, leaving the 5th star off for non-road worthiness. Happy with the purchase!

        Comments about Gator GWE-Elec Hardshell Electric Guitar Case:

        Just what I expected. The Washburn KC-60V (super strat) I am using it for has just a small amount of wiggle room, so I'm very pleased. No need to remove the whammy bar from the Floyd Rose which is convenient. Similar case seen at major retailer would have been close to 30% more after sales tax, so no complaints. Musician's Friend is tough to beat. Not a case I would rely on for lots of gigging though, but not what I bought it for either.

          Comments about Gator GWE-Elec Hardshell Electric Guitar Case:

          This case fits my Charvel strat very well. Has decent neck support and when closed it holds the guitar firmly in place. Good sized compartment for cables, picks and tuners. Outside is rugged and will protect your baby from most routine dangers. It wouldn't survive being dropped from a 10 story building but for every day use it will do the job of protecting your guitar in style. The case is compact in size compared to the MF bargain case and feels better built.

              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.
