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.

    pretty decent case for the price paid, top doesn't align well at first, but with a little jiggling it around, it closes well & protects guitar. I'm pleased and own several of these cases.

            The inside compartment that holds the accessories has a wimpy 'hinge' made of thin cloth, but it should suffice.

                        I don't mind the scuffs but it's kind of disappointing on a "New" case. It's otherwise well built. I'm glad I got it on sale. I would think about returning it but Musicians Friend does not refund return shipping & this is a bulky item.
