My father gave me his 1956 Gibson J-50, which is the single most sentimental thing I own (material). The case, which was not a Gibson but original with the guitar when purchased in '56, had pretty much fallen apart. I decided to purchase this Gibson case and I could not be happier.

The fit and finish of the case is perfect (no bubbles in vinyl, the latches are nice and tight -- none are loose, well padded etc.). The interior is BLACK, not blue as you see in the pic. Not sure why MF or GC does not update it. I prefer the black, it looks very nice. This case fits the slope shoulder perfectly and as you can hopefully see in the pick, there is great padding all around, including the waist of the guitar. Additionally, one thing I was happy to see is nice padding for the back upper bout so that the guitar flush in the case and there is no space.

I really have no complaints on this case at all. The only thing I would change (and you can see this in the pic) is the very thin 4 inch piece of fabric keeping the case lid from falling back. There could be a little more support with thicker fabric and even a piece around the neck area of the case. Also, when you close the case it tends to stick out, so you have to consciously nudge that piece in when you close. This is not a deal breaker and it's actually an easy thing to add another one.

Another big "plus" I wanted to mention is the double neck support on either side of the case accessory compartment (or whatever you call it). Anyway, I would highly recommend this case for any slope shouldered Gibson. I tested my Dove in it and it also fit just as well as the J-50, even though it's square shouldered. But the padding of the case nicely hugs the slope shoulders of the guitar.

I purchased 2 of these cases and they are not made consistently. One of them is a little bigger than the other so I have to use a pad in the larger one to keep my guitar snug inside. One of them had the edge of the toltex peeling off the edge so I did the fix myself.

Good case

Comments about Gibson Case for J-45 Acoustic:

This case ("Gibson Case for J-45 Acoustic") fits my Gibson Hummingbird just fine. So it fits round shoulder and square shoulder Gibsons. It would also fit a 12 string Gibson, plenty of room at the top for the longer headstock. It's not a top of the line case like what comes with the Gibson Historic collection guitars, but it's the next rung down, and it's the only Gibson branded case out there. I like it, good price too.

      Comments about Gibson Case for J-45 Acoustic:

      This is a durable, solid and well built case that matches professional Gibson standards. This guitar case is exactly the quality that my new Gibson J100 was shipped in. When I decided to purchase a new case for my '57 Gibson J45, this case worked perfectly. The construction is solid and with the dark blue plush interior, my J45 fits perfectly. I would buy this case again!

            This branded Gibson case is a perfect companion and protector for my 50 year old J45. Good quality. Good finish. Love the arched top. If I had bought it sooner my Gibson would have fewer battle scars.

            Do you own a J45? Carry it in style with this case.

                    If you have a vintage Gibson, like me, you are VERY picky about your case! I now have my Dad's 1958 J160E, and it is my DARLING, so not just any case will do. I like this case because it is stout and durable, and the case has Gibson logo on it in big letters. It is a very cool case! Go for it!

                          I purchased this case to store a vintage Gibson guitar in. It fit perfectly. The case looks good and is good quality for the price. The picture showed blue lining but lining is black which looks very nice with the black exterior. I like the way the case handles when it is being carried. The small end of the case rises into the air instead of extending straight in front. One has better control when moving about in crowds.

                              This is a Canadian-made case that is a perfect fit for a J-45, and it perfectly fits my vintage j-45 so I see that Gibson has been consistent with the size specs over the years. It probably wouldn't work with those late-sixties square shoulder j-45's though. It is a nice case and it looks nice, but for the price, I have certainly seen sturdier cases. It feels a little cheap, but time will tell. Overall I am happy with it because it is a perfect fit to my guitar. By the way, the interior is now black furry carpet, not blue. I like the black.
