I bought this case for my Epiphone Riviera P93. MF was selling this case for significantly less than the Epiphone case made for my guitar so I took a chance on it. Turns out that this case is a TKL brand 335 sized case with the Ibanez logo printed on the top. My Riviera fits in the case just fine. The case is deep enough to accommodate the Bigsby tailpiece and there's an inch or two of space to spare above the crazy long Epi headstock. I would expect that the case will also accommodate any of the other Epiphone 335 sized guitars.

This case is by no means a flight case but is more than adequate for safely hauling your guitar around town. Unlike the Epiphone case which appears to have an arched top, this case has a flat top. Personally, I prefer the flat top as it makes the case more stackable when hauling or storing multiple instruments. It probably isn't as strong as an arched top case but I'll take the trade-off for the stackability.

As an added bonus, my 4" deep Martin 000X1 also squeezes into the case.

Hope this review helps someone out.

This case is made for the AS-73 and it fits in real snug. However because the AS-73 is only a few inches thick and and not fat like a full hollowbody, the guitar sits in the case in a not so great way. The guitar body at the bottom end sits down in the case while the head end rises up, with the weight of the guitar riding on the neck saddle. (Imagine a heavy kid on a teeter-totter) I think I'll have to make small pillow to put under the body of the guitar to raise it up. Being this is the Ibanez recommended case, I am a little disappointed. Over all a real decent case in terms of quality.

Nice Case for AS93

By Roger Olson

Comments about Ibanez AS100C Artcore Hardshell Case for AS Series Guitars:

My AS93 fits really well in the case. It does move lengthwise about 1/2 inch though.

      Poorly made case, Inside the lining has folds and protrusions so that the parts compartment flap won't close. The cradle for the guitar neck has these folds too, so I worry the neck will get damaged. Sent secend on back for a refund.

          Ibanez AS100C Guitar Case

          from Florida

          Comments about Ibanez AS100C Artcore Hardshell Case for AS Series Guitars:

          Great value and price.My AS73 fits nice and snug side to side,but there's a bit of movement up and down.I solved this by putting a small towel between the heel of the guitar and the bottom of the case.Case is a bit bulky but it's sturdy and should protect the guitar for the long haul.Again great bang for the buck.Happy overall.

              We had a difficult time finding a hard case for the Ibanez AS 53 semi-hollow. It's a very wide guitar. Fits perfectly in this case! Nice lining inside the case too. They shipped it right out.

                      To get a big hard case at this price is kind of a big deal. I have mint Blue AS-guitar which is the match for the case, side to side is fine, but as previous reviews state, there is forward/back play with the guitar. Realistically, that will not make any difference in function. My guitar was delivered in the case and it was protected. When I walk around with the case, even try to slide the guitar around in walking position, I can't hear/feel the moment... so, the slight issue is psychological, mostly. Otherwise, case is strong, pretty and a bargain...

                                          I will be traveling a lot and need a hard case rather than a soft case. Soft case came with it but it does not allow for protection for simple bumps. This will allow me to not worry. Support in the case is great as opposed to what I read for the hard case for Gibson SG.

                                                Like a glove! My Ibanez ASV10A is a perfect fit in this case. Solid construction on the case. It's a typical form fitting hardshell case similar to any black Gibson case.

                                                    Does the job - out guitar player needed something to protect a semi-hollow body that he purchased without a case. This fit perfectly.
