I just received this case for my G5420T and it fits like a glove. This case was designed for this guitar. The pros of this guitar case are: 1. (external) It is arched so it will travel well without worry about crushing on an airplane. The back and top are reinforced with no give and the outside material is sturdy. There are 5 latches and a locking key so no worries about it opening. 2. (inside the case). The lining is plush and there is no "odor" whatsoever as others have mentioned. The fit of the guitar is just perfect with no sloppy movement in any direction. It has a large padded storage area supporting the neck and ample room around the headstock for additional padding during travel. This case is identical to some of the top of the line TKL cases which I own for a number of guitars. Cant imagine a better or more appropriate case for this guitar. I think anyone will love this case.

I got this case for my new Gretsch 5422TDC. It fits okay; a little snug, but the quality is sub par. The first one they shipped me had dried glue all over the inside. The glue is used to attach the fake fur to the inside of the case. A portion of the fur had also pulled away from the case and exposed the foam underneath. I sent it back to Musiciansfriend and they sent me another one. Though the second one didn't have the foam pulled away, it was also very poor quality. For the price I paid for a case I expected more from Gretsch. I have cases from the 70s and 80s for Gibson, Fender and Ovation and the quality is exponentially better than this one. Very, very disappointed in Gretsch.

I would buy it again, but it is no deal that's for sure

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6241 Deluxe Black Case:

Very nice case. But could be just a smidgen better quality for the price. I'd buy it again knowing, but still makes you wonder what happened to quality craftsmanship and pride. Again, for a Gretsch it's worth it. But no bang for your buck

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6241 Deluxe Black Case:

          Even though the description does not say so, I got this for my Gretsch Streamliner G2420T. Very nice fit. Others reviews I saw complained of glue mess and loose covering. Not with this one. Seams are tight, lining is plush, hardware is shiny and solid. I'm not going to beat this case up at all but it would be alright for light tour duty. A decent guitar from Gretsch should have a case to protect it from life. The G2420 doesn't even come with a gig bag. Good price for this protective peace of mind.

                Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6241 Deluxe Black Case:

                The case has such potential. Good ingredients that look rushed in assembly/production. Over cut edges on black exterior wrap catch on stuff and pull away from case. Super glued them first thing. Buckles are of medium grade and are not precise so they need finagling to seat them for closure, especially the locking one. Interior is glued in, but it just looks rushed. Some glue dried on the fur and some curve seams are pulled away slightly. The handle is forward on the case. Only good for short carrying, I use trains and buses to get around and this case has poor ergonomics for that. This case is also not good for rain or snow exposure during transit, it is a overlap lip seal design, not a tounge and groove tight seal design. The anchor point for the front handle pivot is also loose on mine.

                      I spent a little more on this case to get a good fit for my new Gretsch New Yorker archtop acoustic-electric guitar. The fit is perfect - tight but not too tight.

                          It's a nice, solid hard-shell case. I would have given 5 stars but the lid is slightly misaligned and so the latches are offset (I've never seen this before). I have to give the lid a slight twist to get the first latch lined up, then they all line up fine. I'll say "yes" that I would recommend it to a friend, but that's with the hope that the misalignment is uncommon.
