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.

      Pros

      • Fits the 5420 like a glove.
      • Functional
      • Good design overall for fair weather transport

      Cons

      • Fit/finish not at price point standard
      • handle is forward on case. Poor carry balance.
      • Poor seam joining on exterior black covering

      Best Uses

        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.

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6241 Deluxe Black Case:

          This case is great quality, although the latches didn't seem as sturdy as some other cases that I own in the same price range. Guitar fits great, although the trem arm can't be left up without the case putting pressure on it. When the arm is spun around fully, the case closes fine and the guitar stays still.

                      Got this for my new 5420T. Fits like a glove. Very nice interior - plush red velvet like material. Solid protection. Interior had pleasant smell unlike some cases I've gotten in the past that smell like a paint factory until you air them out. Has 5 latches that are tight and keep it tightly closed. Has a nice sized accessory compartment inside for picks, strings, cables, straps. Comes with the key for the lock. Very nice for the price.

                          I did a lot of research for a guitar case that would fit and protect my Gretsch G5422TG. All the 335 style cases were not deep enough to handle the Bigsby 60 tremolo found on the G5422. The 335 cases fit the body well but I really disliked the pressure being applied to the guitar body by the top of the case pressing down on the Bigsby tremolo. The G6241 case, with the arched top, allows for just enough clearance to hold the guitar securely without engaging the Bigsby. It costs a little more that G2341FT, but I personally believe its worth the cost. I had no issues with construction or quality, it's well made and will protect my guitar.

                                      not a quality case, uncomfortable plastic handle, light gauge metal on hardware.
                                      top lid of case is flimsy. Expected better from Grestch.

                                            Probably will be a good case. Not sure when this might have been manufactured, but the finish on the latches are already discolored. That's not a big deal, as they would eventually do that anyway(they are not solid bronze, after all). I think the case was recently manufactured as the inside stunk of glue. So I am airing it out for a while. It's early in its life, but I would recommend this case to a friend (but not Paul McCartney).

                                                This is a beautiful, high quality, and functional case. It's exactly what I was hoping it would be except for one thing: it was way too big for my Gretsch Honeydipper resonator. It was the case someone at MF recommended, but the guitar rattled around inside. That's not great for protection, so I sent it back and found a more suitable case at a local independent guitar shop.

                                                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
