This case fits both my Yamaha Apx500ii and my Epiphone PR4e. I ordered this case thinking I would do some modifying to fit these smaller guitars, not wanting to spend the extra dough on a guitar-specific case. Both guitars fit well without modification. Not perfect but 100 times better than a soft gig bag for protection. Latches work well, secure handle, not too heavy. Great for everyday storage and travel, just don't take it on a plane of course. Actual interior length is 41 1/2 inches, you'll probably be happy with the fit for any number of smaller body, shallower acoustic guitars. If you find it a tad deep, just throw your polishing cloth on top of your axe before you close the case. With a coupon and some loyalty points I got this for a steal, but worth the regular price anyday. Can't go wrong, really.

I was really impressed with the appearance, weight and especially the nice comfortable handle. I bought the tweed version. However, you had to wiggle the lid to shut the case as it was poorly aligned, and the case has a 4 1/2" interior depth at the edge, the specs say 5 1/2". I guess they're measuring from the arched center. I have 2 classicals and both are 5" deep on the edge, 5 1/2" w/bridge saddle height considered. I had to put undue pressure on the case to close it. Also, the fabric covering the top was cut too small so there was frayed tweed on the edge of the lid where it didn't meet the covering of the side taping/binding. I also have the tweed strat case and it is tops. These are great cases, but it was too small for a standard size classical. i really wish it had worked.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Classical Guitar Case:

    THESE ARE THE CORRECT INTERIOR DIMENSIONS FOR THIS CASE:

    Lower bout - 14 7/8"
    Upper bout - 11 1/2"
    Waist - 10"
    Body Length - 19 3/4"
    Body Depth - 4"
    Total Length - 40"

    I ordered the tweed case for a guitar I bought that did not have one. I called customer service and asked if the dimensions listed under SPECS were for the interior or exterior. I was told they were for the interior. WRONG! The dimensions listed are for the exterior. Other than that it is a nice case for the money.

    Good Case - Here's useful info

    Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Classical Guitar Case:

    My guitar fits easily into this case, leaving about 3/4 inch of extra room for the body lengthwise, and about 3/8 inch side to side. My guitar measures 11-1/16 across the upper bout; 9-7/8 across the middle; and 14-9/16 across the lower bout. The length of the body is 19-1/8 (excluding the heel), and from the bottom to the narrowest part of the waist is 11-3/8 inches. The guitar waist is about 1-inch shorter than the waist of the case. The overall length of my guitar is 39-1/8. There is about 2-inches of room at the top end for the headstock. I hope these details help you decide whether or not your classical guitar will fit this case.
    Good. Standard features for a cas of this type and price point.
    Good quality. Mark-downs for two reasons: (a) My new case released a powerful solvent/glue odor when first opened, but this went away after I left it open for a couple of days without the guitar in it; and (b) the edges of the latches are not finished off well, and a couple of them have retained a burr which drew blood when I accidentally rubbed against one.
    Good value.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Classical Guitar Case:

    Well, I shopped pretty hard for a case for my RK ROS-06, and was delighted to find this one offered. I ordered the 'tweed' model (not sure my comments apply to the black one as it appears slightly different). The published dimensions were very close to my guitar's dimensions, and there's even one reviewer that said his RK fit fine ( he didn't specify the model#, though).
    Well, this case was too small, as many other reviewers have lamented.
    If you want to order one of these, here are the exact inside dimensions of the case I received, which differ enough from the published dimensions to be significant. Lower Bout,14-1/2'; Waist,9-1/4"; Upper Bout, 10-7/8"; Body length,19-1/4". If any dimension of your guitar is larger, even by a quarter inch, it may not fit.
    Other than that, the case was nice looking, decently made, and reasonably sturdy. I have returned mine, and the people at MF were very helpful and even did a bit of searching to try to find something bigger. I will try again, but this time it's probably the Silver Creek 000 case.

      Great for the price. Yes the lid can fit goofy at times but a slight push with your thumb and she closes perfectly. Fits my Ibanez AC240 like a glove.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Classical Guitar Case:

      good case for the money. bought it for 39.99 after 20% discount. seems sturdy enough for local practice (for sure better than a gig bag). I bought the black one for my Ibanez AEG20 and it fit relatively snug. If my les paul case wore out, i would probably not replace it with one of these but is good for the acoustic that I have. the measurement for my guitar is as follows upper bout is 11 1/4" (a little room to spare). waist is 9 1/2" with room to spare. Lower bout is 15" snug but may be able to go another 1/8" max. body length is 19" excluding the heal with an inch or two to spare. overall length is 40 1/4" with a couple inches to spare. depth of guitar is 3 1/4" with an extra 1 1/4" to spare. nice looking came in 4 days and no blemishes. latches and hinges are a little weak but for the price, still more than I expected.

                      In my thinking, every guitar should have a hardshell case for storage and travel. These Musician's Friend Classical Hardshell cases are excellent, and the price - well, I now have such hardshell cases for each of my classical guitars.

                        This is a great case but will not work for full size classical guitar. Too tight a fit. Works great for resonator guitar or flamenco guitar without full depth body. It seems smaller than the specifications measurements.

                          I now own four Musician's Gear cases, two dreadnaught, one electric, and now this classical case, which I actually use for a resonator guitar. They're sturdy cases, and good deals for the price. One of my dreadnaught cases is the tweed, and it's a real beauty. The black ones look like any black hardshell case. They do have a chemical odor when they first arrive, though this quickly goes away, and they do require some attention to line up for closing, especially when you first get them, but they still do the job just fine. This one arrived with some cosmetic damage--a gouge that exposed some wood on the lid--see photo--but Musician's Friend's customer service department proved friendly, helpful, and quick and took care of it to my satisfaction.

                          The case was delivered to me from Musician's Friend in a single brown box which was intact. The case had no identifying tags. The vinyl had a small tear which looked like it had been previously glued because it's sticky in that spot. The middle clasp does not lineup. Closing the case requires a lot of manipulation. My suspicion is that this case was already returned because it shipped weeks earlier than the web site indicated. Musician's Friend requires that the case be retuned in a double box which is a hoot since they shipped it to me in a single box. I feel it would not be cost effective to ship back, time wise and financially. Disappointed.

                          I recommend it for normal use.
                          Standard hard shell classical guitar case
                          The shell and the padding are just fine. The latches are just slightly off, but they open and close with no extra difficulty. The case is relatively light, which I like. I wouldn't sit on it, though.
                          Got it on sale, and it was a great deal for the money. It's replacing a 30 year old case. I expect it will last 30 years, too.

                          Bought this case after reading a review of the Ibanez Talman guitars. one reviewer said he shares his classical case with his classical and a talman. He was right, fits great and a nice case also, well worth the $$$ and agreat solution to me wondering what case would fit the talman.

                          The construction is solid, but it's not a flight case where you'd want 500 lbs. sitting on it. As one reviewer said, though, it's good for storing your guitar in your house and for the recreational outings (and maybe even 'real careful' full-time gigging). You could stack a couple of cases on it and it would be fine. For the money it's a no brainer.
                          These cases (black in this case) are well worth the money. The protection factor is indeed sufficient (not a flight case, however, but not paper thin), the inside is plush, the inside stash compartment is big enough to hold a rolled up strap, hardware is fine - especially in light of the price. If you need one, this will work.
                          Fine for the money
                          Excellent value.

                              My guitar is an older Brazilian lady. She was sad and long neglected when we met. I was older too and never played, I was a 59 year old guitar virgin. It was love at first sight. I restrung, cleaned and tuned her and she loved it. She was kind and patient as I struggled with my first chords and scales.

                              Now almost two years later I am finally starting to make her sing. She loves it when I gently thumb strum her, even more when she gets finger picked. She tolerates it when I flat pick her but when I do she wants it hard. She also loves it when she gets played by someone with better skills and I watch. Now we have started doing it in front of people so I got her a pick up so she can get plugged in.

                              We even opened up for Ray Wylie Hubbard, to the early arrivers; actually it was an audience of one, the security guard who threw us out of the venue. I got a gig sticker and saved it and it's the first on her new case.

                              But all through that her old and cheap case went from well-worn to unusable. We could no longer go out and play. So it was time treat her with a new case. The case I got from Musician's Friend was way better than I expected and my lady is more than happy to get carried around in the class she deserves.

                              Well played Musician's Friend, well played.
