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.

          Tweed version - Great value when on sale at fifty nine, ninety-nine. Some minor cosmetic issues under the cloth but acceptable. If you're looking for perfect, prepare to spend a lot more money. I don't like buying MIC labeled products but, I didn't need the higher end. The pic of the Tolex version doesn't look inspiring (rounded corners?). Besides, if it's like the Musicians Gear Concert Acoustic case (I bought on sale for forty a couple years back), most of the tolex has come unglued at the seams. - PROFANITY/RESTRICTED WORDS - DON'T TALK ABOUT M.O.N.E.Y. lol

              I wanted this case for storing and for transporting every now and then. I am not a gigging musician. If I were I would use my ABS hard case to transport. This case does not appear that it would hold up to very much abuse, but does what I need it for. It fits tele and strat guitars well. Any Gibson/Epiphone type guitar would not work due to the angled neck from the body they have. Also any guitar that have an angled headstock like some Jackson/Charvel will not work as weight would be put on the headstock and may crack. Schecter type guitars fit as the headstocks are not too angled. I even can fit my 28" scale Damien Platinum 8 string in it.

                  This is a really nice case. I've made a few partscasters lately, and I wanted to house them all in identical cases so I could visually separate them from the rest of my guitar collection. This Musicians Gear case is well-made, the guitars fit perfectly, and the combination of tweed and faux leather gives it a sophisticated appearance. Best of all, the latches work smoothly and accurately, an attribute that is getting harder and harder to find in cases at this price..

                  Honestly, I think its a great case for the price paid. I wanted basic protection for occasional bus travel with my guitar. If I wanted something better I would have paid more for a molded case. So based on expectation and price, I think its a great case at this price point.

                  Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Electric Guitar Case:

                  Got this cheap on the Father's Day sale. I've bought 5 of these over the last 15 years and each time they have lessened in quality. My first came in black and was made like the tweed case with heavy vinyl ends and tolex middle. The next two were similar to the one picture but the corners are more square. The wood used was heavy because it didn't flex. My son still uses it. In fact 13 years ago he strapped two leather belts around it and used it as a flight case for his guitar on a trip to South America and it came back solid. The one after that had a light grade of tolex and after a couple years the glue started to fail and I've had to use duct tape on it. Stil, the wood was heavy and there was no flex. The one I got today 6/20/16, is floppy when opened. The stitching around the top has long loops with gaps of black as long as the stitches. The others have tight, short stitching with no gaps. The handle has been down graded as well. Sadly, when on sale they are no longer the bang for the buck cases I've gotten in the past.

                  bought this on sale. For the price, i won't argue too much. The storage compartment lid didn't close correctly, but tightening a couple of screws fixed that. And my telecaster fits so snugly that it almost seems too tight.

                  Overall, the case does what I need: keeps the dust and cats off of my guitar and protects it when I load it in the trunk of the car. I really think that almost all guitar cases at this level are overpriced anyway, so if you see this on sale you might wanna get one.
