I bought this case (black pleather one) about five years ago for my Ibanez AX 220, which is an even double cutaway, something like a Gibson ES shape. Over the last five years, I've used the case once or twice each week to ferry my guitar to practice and occasionally to gigs, and it has held up very well. I'm careful when I handle it, but not overly so. No dropping or throwing. It's not exceptionally fancy, but it looks classier than a gig bag. The faux fur on the inside is soft and resilient padding.

I was looking for two things: more protection than a gigbag, and the ability to stack the guitar in a vehicle with other guitars, a full acoustic drumkit, amplifiers, etc. The case does both of these things well. After five years, there are two rips in the pleather from sliding it over a tailgate that snagged it. I stuck them back with super glue, and they don't really show. The foam that cradles the neck has worn down towards the feet of the case from the weight of the guitar, and it can move a bit inside. It's not far enough to let the head stock touch the side, but it's noticeable when the case is stood on end.

The compartment is pretty spacious and doesn't show any wear from the guitar neck. It holds the head stock far enough away from the bottom of the case so that the tuning keys aren't disturbed. None of the latches or hinges have broken. I never use the lock, so I can't speak to it's quality. The body of the case is plywood which makes it sturdy but heavy compared to an ABS case or gig bag. I've never jumped up and down on it, but I've had a 75 lb guitar amp on top of it on the way to and from shows with no complaints. I would not trust it in a big fall or a car accident, nor would I expect it to survive as luggage handled by other people, but that's not really the price range we're in here.

All in all, I'm very satisfied with this guitar case. I'd recommend it to anybody looking for a sturdy, universal case at an affordable price.

It didn't survive shipping...or more likely, it didn't survive the warehouse, as the packaging had no damage. My tweed case arrived with a 4" crack in the wood under the storage area. I am glad that it did arrive damaged as, if it had arrived intact I probably would have been too lazy to return it. Remember, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, which is...not much. The hinges on the handle do not look trustworthy either.

If you still are considering this case, here are the true dimensions (these should be included in the descriptions of all cases):

Interior (wood to wood) : 41" x 14"
Body area (padding to padding) 12 1/2" wide x 19" long
Total length (thin felt at headstock to padding at bottom) 40" + 1" divot for strap button

I bought this for my GRB Kokocaster (nice Surfcaster knockoff). The width was a perfect fit but lengthwise I had about an inch of play.

Although my review is negative, it is only negative about the product...MF, as always, has been expedient and accommodating.

          These cases work great and the one I got was not perfect (the storage top was a bit out of alignment). I've gotten several of these cases in the past from MF on sale. They all work great (maybe a some cosmetic flaw or a latch not matching up perfectly, but still working). To me, the imperfections are not a big thing as long as the case functions properly and does its job - which is protecting the guitar. The interiors are nicely done.
          A hard case at these prices is a great deal!

                      I bought one of these for a telecaster I built for my grandson, it fit perfectly. The quality is good for the price. It is not as nice as a Fender case but only cost half the price. I bought the second one for a Gretsch junior jet bass, it fit perfectly.

                              This one is no comparison to the Tweed style case, night and day in quality.
                              The inside storage compartment door does not close correctly and is not secure.
                              I returned mine the same day it was delivered, yesterday, and asked that they check the replacement before shipping out the replacement.
                              Good for storage at home, it's a cheap case and not something that can take any abuse.
