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.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Electric Guitar Case:

      These are nice cases, I have a few of them, they may not be the sturdiest (the lid flexes some) but no big deal, they interior is really nice and plenty of room in the compartment. Fits strats and teles perfect. But, I think they are somewhat overprices, last summer they had them for 39, other than that, can't beat them, the cheapest hardshell case available.

        Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Electric Guitar Case:

        Blemishes out of the box. Medium scuffs. Lid didn't align with the case -- I had to push the lid sideways about a quarter inch to close it. The gadget compartment doesn't have an actual hinge, but relies on the fuzzy fabric which was too loose. The lid continued to slip off of the lip and fall into the compartment.

        MF's customer service wasn't much help. I had to send it back.

        Had to send it back. Too many flaws. The tweed had a flaw in the weave. There were bumps and smudges out of the box. The tweed would soil easily. While stylish, not practical. The Fender tweed case (for nearly twice the money) is much better and more practical.

        I can't recommend it.

          I now own 5 of these. I have never had a problem or issue. they are not strong enough to endure the 'rigors of the road' but for good, basic protection, you can't beat the price.

            Holds my Strat Standard, but needs additional foam to hold it tight. Added 1 1/2 in of foam to the butt end. Wobbles a little, but neck slot holds in place. Not for rough handling, however its better than no case or a bag. I use mine to carry to the car and back. It works for me and the price is right.
