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.

    Comments about Gator GWE-Elec Hardshell Electric Guitar Case:

    Case seems fine in terms of construction, however it does not fit a G400 in length or width. I bought it because it was presented by MF's case finder app as fitting a G-400 and had to return it.

              Comments about Gator GWE-Elec Hardshell Electric Guitar Case:

              I have several of these cases and they have always worked fine for keeping the ( where did that scratch , ding , gouge ) come from on my guitars . Standard strats fit very well and I was also pleased to see my lone star deluxe with the big 70,s head is a good snug fit also not a fit for my old Mustang but still worth the price. And finally twisted strap stays that fold back into the case when it's closed, somebodies using their head.

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

                  this case did not fit my G&L tele. like I ordered it for. I have a fender stat case I was able to swap the guitars for, so I am good. But I would have liked to used this Gator for the G&L. Nice case for the Money!

                  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
