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:

Pretty flimsy case. Easily bends. Also the hardware latches very thin metal. I see those failing soon. Worst part is my G&L tele doesn't fit right. Pocket is 3 inches too long (length) and the guitar just swims in it. Also too deep. If you shake it the guitar goes back and forth by a couple of inches. Lastly the accessory compartment door closes too far. That's breakage coming and your accessories flinging all over the case. Not a good product

    This is a GREAT case for use in your local area. It is NOT intended for heavy duty travel such as flying or being at the bottom of a stack of heavy equipment, etc. Some judgement is called for.

          Nice case - put together well for the investment - I'm using it for my 1983 Fender American Strat. I'm not using the tremolo bar, so the guitar fits very well in this case. If I put my back-up squire strat in this case WITH the tremolo bar it WON'T close. So I put this bar on my American guitar - the case still would not close.

          It's a good case all-in-all. Yes I would recommend it - but be aware of its limitations of case thickness.

            Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Electric Guitar Case:

            I have four black Musician's Gear cases. and one tweed....plus a bass case. They don't see a lot of transportation, but they seem durable enough for average usage. I'm sure you can get better quality by spending more $$$, but not everyone needs that. I haven't had a high-end guitar in a long time, but I still want to protect the ones I own just the same. I give them a 5 for the cost/quality.
            P.S. I bought the "tweed" about 10 yrs ago (Musician's Friend), and the liner adhesive smelled awful.......it took a while, but came out. I don't know if that's still an issue.

              I needed a hard case for my Stratocaster but didn't want to spend a fortune. I bought this case on sale at a great price. I wasn't expecting much, but I was very pleasantly surprised. My Strat fits perfectly in it. It seems to be durable enough for my needs as a casual player.

                  • Be your own roadie

                  Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Electric Guitar Case:

                  I own one of the tweed and one of the black cases. It does the job for local gigs when you are your own roadie and you have control over how it's treated during transport and load in/out. If you're dumb enough to use one of these for your five-grand "precious investment axe" (or dumb enough to trust airline baggage handlers with it), then you deserve whatever happens. However, for a five-hundred Mexi-Strat it's perfectly fine. Really.

                  Black Case: The neck pocket doesn't seem to hold the guitar securely; when you pick up the case by the handle you can feel the guitar shift downward. I solved this problem by cutting a piece of cardboard to size and wedging it between the neck pocket and the hinge-side of the case (easy fix).

                  Tweed Case: This one is heavier and fatter than the black case and seems to have more cushion, making the guitar a tighter fit. The tweed cloth on the outside is subject to stains, rips, etc. but it certainly looks prettier than the black until that happens. My biggest annoyance with this model is that the hinges stick out farther than the feet; the case wobbles when you set it down. This is more difficult to fix since the feet are held in place by rivets instead of screws.

                  Bottom line: Fifty beans is a fair price but I wouldn't pay a penny more for either one. If you see these being offered for more money, shop elsewhere or wait for a sale.
