The right case

This is the right case for my '64 SG Junior. It fits perfectly and snugly, with padding under the body in the right place, and support at both the heel and headstock.

Don't buy this case unless you absolutely must have "Gibson USA" silk screened on your case. I got one with my '61 RI and poked a hole in it with a protruding part of my wheelchair. It was then I discovered that Gibson's idea of a hardshell case consists of fiberboard sides over a wood framework. It wasn't too much better than a gig bag and I immediately replaced it with an SKB SG case which provides more protection. If you opt for an Epiphone case, you'll save even more and get quality equal to the Gibson product.

Doesn't offer much protection!

Comments about Gibson SG Hardshell Case:

This case carried my sg standard. I leaned the case against the back of a couch and it ended up falling over (3 feet), shouldn't have been a big deal. Open the case and my headstock broke! I can only imagine what could happen if i ever gigged with this?!

Pricy But Overall Good

About Me Novice

Comments about Gibson SG Hardshell Case:

I bought this to house a 2014 SGJ. The fit is a little tight on the upper bout and the neck needed a little more support underneath the nut section. The case itself seems study enough. However if any part is a little questionable it is the handle where it is attached to the body. This should be ok for me since I will only use the case to hold the guitar. If I was dragging the case around a lot, I might be a little concerned for the long haul, especially at this price.

Comments about Gibson SG Hardshell Case:

This is the right fit case for a USA SG.

Unlike some of the others available this one is not too small and tight at the lower bout so it won't squeeze in on the guitar and cause a problem.

          Comments about Gibson SG Hardshell Case:

          Like most, I looked at the cheaper alternatives when seeking to replace the flimsy gig bag for my new (2016) USA SG Standard. While there are cheaper options, they do not provide the neck support necessary for the SG - this case offers the correct support for the angle of the set neck in the form of a "ramp" where it meets the body. Many of the generic "one size fits all" cases do not. This case also cradles the instrument properly, and is not "too tight" and/or "too loose" along the curves of the body. Now, I'm no fan of overpriced Gibson-branded accessories, and would have opted for aftermarket if the fit was the same but sadly this is the only way I found to properly protect my SG. This is a quality TKL Canadian-made case with "Gibson Gear" silkscreened on it, and the cost, for me, justifies the peace of mind. Was well packed (double boxed) and shipped quickly - great job by MF.

            Comments about Gibson SG Hardshell Case:

            I bought this case to use with my 2016 SG since it only came with a bag (shame on you Gibson). It's Ok for soft use, but I don't think it would hold up to heavy gigging. Tolex is kind of thin. It does fit my SG like a glove internally but just feels extremely light and overall thin.

            Had I not got a discount on it and got it much cheaper than a gator case I would have sent it back for one of those cases.

                Comments about Gibson SG Hardshell Case:

                I recently purchased a 2017 Gibson SG Faded T and wanted a case that would support this shape/neck properly. The supplied gig bag leaves a lot to be desired as it torques the neck slightly and is cumbersome to apply and remove. After examining all the options I concluded that this hard case best supports the entire guitar. The case is made in Canada. The guitar body fits snugly and the padding underneath follows the angle of the body. The two supports for the neck actually contact the neck (at about the 1st and 12th frets) thereby reducing the chance of damage. All in all I'm pleased with the support/padding/protection this offers. Of course this is not meant to be a flight case but should suffice for other transport. As a bonus, the wine red color of the guitar also looks nice against the dark grey lining. There are less expensive cases out there but they seem to compromise neck support so this is really the best option.

                    Lots of great, economical choices for cases out there. I bought this on sale so it didn't cost much more than a typical competitive brand. Perfect fit, made by Gibson for a Gibson SG.

                        Great hardshell Gibson OEM case. Fits SG perfectly and has Gibson Logo on it. Had to have it as 2016 SG Standard T only comes with a gigbag and personally don't believe in putting Gibson Guitars in gigbags due to their set necks.

                          This case is fantastic. It does what it is supposed to, and it does it very well. I agree that it is very expensive and I'm sure the Epiphone case would be just as nice, but it was made in Canada and for me thats a plus. It has a roomy storage area and the interior is extremely well padded and soft. The interior is gray which should not pose any discoloration problems except maybe on a white SG. The only thing is that the case you will receive is not the case pictured. To see what the real case looks like check out the Gibson Les Paul case, the outside is the same except for a few shape differences. Overall, an awesome buy.
