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:

    I bought this case (black one) for an Epiphone S310.that I had purchased. I bought the black case based on the inner dimensions, which most closely matched the best fit for this guitar. (Be aware that the inner dimensions are different between the black case and the tweed case, it ls listed in the product description)

    Now, let's remember that this a generic case made to fit an array of different guitars. Not just one specific instrument.. The S310 fits very nicely inside the case, not perfect, but nice. Again, this is to be expected. A trip to the local arts & crafts store to buy some art foam and (if you want to get fancy) a covering of your choice, will give you whats needed to make a more custom fit for your instrument.

    In general, for the money, this case will give you what you need to protect your instrument in normal everyday use & local travel.

    Now for my gripe.... although build quality is about what I had expected, I found the attention to actual quality control a little shabby. The application of the outside black covering was not exactly smooth, kinda of bunched up a little bit at the one corner. Hence my 4 stars. It does not affect the integrity of the case and it is not worth sending back... believe me, what I am going to be doing to this case will be far worse.... remember a cases job is to protect what's inside.

    Still, a good value for your money.

      Bought a G&L Strat. Fits nice and snug, and tweed exterior and plush red interior enhance the look and professionalism of the instrument.
