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.

            Nice case.Fits my 1970s fender strat. perfectly.Only issue is that the case arrived damaged due to being poorly packaged by musicians friend.Sent it back waiting for a replacement to arrive.Hopefully this one arrives in one piece.

                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.

                  Bought this after MF salesperson insisted it would hold a Michael Kelly Patriot. They were wrong. Had to switch out another of my guitars from another case to accommodate both cases.

                    I was so happy with my first case I bought another for my new Strat. The guitar just fits in the case perfectly and is more compact than the molded cases. If you are not tossing the instruments around this case should be very functional for you.

                    All the latches and case line up well. Seems to be solid. Good price for a 3ply case. The Fender Strat and Tele fit well. My Peavey is about 1.5 in. longer and is very tight. My DeArmonds body is to wide and will not fit in case.

                      These Gator cases are much less expensive that other guitar cases. They're not as sturdy as a case you'd pay twice for, but they sure do a great job. If you care about your guitars and don't THROW them around, these cases are perfect. I bought three at a time and it didn't break the bank. Great value.
