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.

Other than one minor blotch in the tweed, I'm very satisfied. Feel much safer with the Strat in this case than in a gig bag.

Good case for the money

Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Electric Guitar Case:

I read lots of reviews on this case that did not do it justice. The conclusion I came to is some people just can't be pleased. If you want a case for roadwork that can be tossed around in the back of a truck, then pay the extra money for a case. If you want a case that will protect your axe and can be used for local gigs, as I do, then this case is an excellent buy for the money.

A sharp wood edge on the accessory compartment will damage the neck, do not put your guitar in this case.

Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Electric Guitar Case:

It might be 5 ply but they must be very thin plies. Mine is all black . If you need a case to keep your guitar in storage or to keep it dry to go into your once a week lessons than it's not bad . However , It's not a strong , protective case. I would not recommend it to a friend .

Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Electric Guitar Case:

I like this Case. It doesn't hold the guitar neck well though. I will have to add some padding or something to keep the neck from sliding down when the case is carried.
