OK, if your les paul didn't come with a case, take a look at the Epiphone case after you look at this one. This is not the same LP case that comes with a Gibson LP when you buy one. This is the exact same case as the Epiphone, just with Gibson printed on it instead of Epiphone. Overall, They are very excellent cases.

After waiting nearly 2 months for a Gibson Les Paul case, this poorly designed case arrived. The handle is 5 inches closer to the neck-end of the case than my original Les Paul case, so the guitar is way off balance when trying to carry it. The back of the case drags on the ground, the neck-end points almost straight up and it hurts my wrist because the handle is so far from being level when carried.

If you have an imitation Les Paul or a hollowed out model, then this case might work for you, but if you have REAL solid body Les Paul then there's a good chance this case won't work for you.

Also, the case is not made in the USA.

Very disappointed.

      Comments about Gibson Les Paul Hardshell Case:

      Wow, I could not be more disappointed in an original Gibson product, especially being quite expensive. I bought this as a replacement for the original case that came with my Gibson Les Paul Custom. This is not even close to being the same case. The leather wrap on the outside feels cheap. No combination flip lock. The inside is plush and okay. Price needs to be reduced by about 150 for this quality. I'm sending this back.

          CAUTION; WILL NOT PROPERLY SEAT SMALLER LP DESIGNS, LIKE A SPECIAL. BEST FOR CARVED TOP LP MODELS. PUTS PRESSURE ON YOUR 3-WAY SWITCHES. WILL NOT FIT A "FLAT SLAB" LP BODY - CASE IS TOO DEEP FOR THE NECK TO SET RIGHT. FINE FOR CARVED TOP LPS.

          Comments about Gibson Les Paul Hardshell Case:

          pros: It fits a Les Paul well. It fits snug and the padding fits the contours of the guitar. The outer shape is well formed. Latches seem decent and align well. Outer construction seems well built. cons: A poor job wrapping the tolex around the edges on the rounded parts (top especially), is very bumpy/excessive and doesn't seem to be glued down very well possibly due to this. Some of the fabric lining doesn't seem to be glued very well possibly due to the poor work on the tolex. Also there is excess glue on the seams of the tolex.

          Comments about Gibson Les Paul Hardshell Case:

          It's great fitting case for my Les Paul the mid compartment is large enough to be useful interior lining seems to be glued well and it holds the guitar in place. Outer case covering is well attached but the edges can be felt like in time they'll come apart. I personally think the manufacturer could have done a better job on it in other words workmanship was not equivalant to the premium price charged for the case and the latches instead of having one key locked it has a lock latch for a padlock not a good design!For the Price your own mileage may vary!!

            Comments about Gibson Les Paul Hardshell Case:

            After just receiving a new 2015 Gibson Les Paul Studio SR in Wine Red, I decided that I wanted the Gibson case to go with it. Although the guitar comes with a case (Thanks Gibson!), and a nice one at that, it's a little large and bulky. Not overly so, just a little. All five of my other Les Paul style guitars are in form fitting cases, and I just wanted to carry on the tradition!

            This is a very nice case! It's well made and sturdy, and offers a sufficiently plush interior. And it looks nice! Branded with "Gibson USA" on the outside of the case sets it apart. I was somewhat conflicted given the number of poor reviews, but decided to take a chance. And I'm glad I did!

            On a side note, one reviewer indicates that this case and the Epiphone LP case are the same case with different names stenciled on the outside. Owning both,it is my decided opinion that the are NOT the same case. They are made differently. They are the same size and shape, and accomplish the same purpose, and are the same color, but that is where the similarities end. And who wants their prized Gibson Les Paul guitar in a case that says Epiphone on the outside? I sure don't!

              Comments about Gibson Les Paul Hardshell Case:

              A little over priced but a good case. The slight unbalanced feel is from the bottom heavy Les Paul not the case. My Les Paul fits in it nice and snug and it appears to be durable. It is plush on the inside and nice looking on the outside as well. Although not as good a value as a Gator case it is a better quality case. Great for local gigs and carrying in the car, SUV, or trailer as it is much lighter and less bulkier than my flight case.

                Comments about Gibson Les Paul Hardshell Case:

                I wanted a genuine Gibson Hard Shell case for my new Les Paul. I got a genuine Gibson Hard Shell case! This case fits a Les Paul like a glove! The wedge for the neck support is what impresses me more than anything! It's great! The outer skin could have been not rushed during its construction, though. My only issue with it is the price. There are other cases that fit the bill, but, you pay for the Gibson name, and logo. I am pleased with this purchase, and yes, will recommend this to a friend! It's not a Gibson without the Gibson case.

                  Comments about Gibson Les Paul Hardshell Case:

                  I bought this case for my 2016 50s Tribute LP. I know the gig bag could do a good job for protecting my guitar, but nothing beats a hard shell case. This case is pretty awesome for what it is. Looks like it was made from tough plywood, and the covering looks pretty tough as well. This case doesn't have a locking hinge. You have to buy a padlock for it.

                  The interior has a plush gray lining that provides soft cushioning for your LP, and its safe on the finish as well. My LP fits snug inside the case, it does not shake around, which gives me peace of mind that it won't be shaking around when I'm carrying it about.

                  Visual aesthetics are simple but elegant. The Gibson Gear logo blazing across the front looks cool, although I personally wish it could've been the Gibson USA logo. The leather tab for the accessory compartment has the Gibson logo embossed on it, nothing too special.

                  It's a good case for a decent price. I wouldn't mind recommending it.
