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.

              It's not a road case but this guitar travels from home to church and it's better than a gig bag and it holds more stuff than the original molded Fender case.

                  A very decent case for the money. I bought the black one for my G&L Tribute Legacy, which fits perfectly inside (G&L S-shaped guitars tend not to fit in some cases designed for Strats.) Now, this isn't a heavy-duty case like the G&G that came with my USA Legacy, but it's definitely strong enough to toss in the back of the car or a van to protect the guitar going to and from gigs. I do like this case, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

                                    Look. I like Musicians Friend, Guitar Center, and these cases. I bought a black one a few months ago in a sale and got a great deal on a decent black hard shell. So, when the ad came up showing the Tweed at 46 simoleons, it looks like a great deal, and it would have been. But, the picture tweed and the 46 buck price did not match up. It was the black one, with the tweed at over sixty. I don't know about you, but, although these are both okay prices for an okay case, I don't think Musicians Friend should be using any of these "Bait and Switch" tricks to get me, or you, to look. You picture the tweed at 46, you should offer it at 46, and not try to fool people into responding. This really lowers my opinion of both MF and their parent.
