I have 5 of the MF house brand cases....-I have two of the LP cases for Melody Makers.-I keep a resonatoer in a OOO sized case.-I keep a 70's Tribute SG in the SG case and I used to have another SG case for a Faded SG.For [$] this is a very nice case. You can buy a better case for twice the price and I have many cases that cost twice the price but for [$] this is a well made and safe place to store a guitar.The handles are sturdy and the latches are sturch and the arch top in the case adds a lot of protection to a flat top guitar.If you buy one of these cases when MF has their coupon offers then you're getting a fantastic deal.

Sturdy Enough, Doesn't Fit SGJ Very Well

This case is fairly well made, but that's not the problem. The inside padding is raised, but not angled, so the point of contact is the bottom of your SG. From there, the neck rest is raised too high, so that the guitar rests at the base and in the middle of the neck. There is no second neck-rest, so that one is the only point of contact.

This leaves the guitar sitting in the case at an upward angle with the bottom contacting the inside of the case, and the one point on the neck contacting the neck rest. Closing the case puts downward pressure on the guitar...and thus, produces pressure that could snap the neck or the headstock, which does contact the bottom part of the top of the case.

Don't put an SG in here. It's a recipe for disaster until they redesign it to be more like a typical Gibson or Epiphone SG case.

Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe SGS Solid-Guitar-Style Hardshell Case:

After reading a "few" comments about how the fit wasn't too good and, some modifications were needed to make this case safe to use I thought I would see for myself, so I ordered one for my Epi G400 Pro. Well it fits pretty darned good and, I really looked it over good to see if I could find any negative aspects of this case. I can't. There is padding under the front of the body for support and, on the top of the case also. The only thing that I did was to work over the neck craddle to make the neck lay a little lower and, also rest on the accessory compartment and, that's it. This case is a Great buy and, a Great fit. I'm confident that it will give the guitar the protection and, storage that I would expect. I take Great care of all my gear and, if I had any doubts what so ever that this case would not protect my instrument it would definately be going back.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe SGS Solid-Guitar-Style Hardshell Case:

      I have three SG Cases for my SGs, one older genuine Gibson (Brown w/pink nightie), one Epiphone, and now this MF case.
      The MF is NOT as good as the Epiphone or Gibson, but still decent enough for light duty. My Gibson SG Std T fits well but the padding is light and the latches are suspect. This is a good case to keep your SG in around the house or for local outings such as transporting your guitar to practice. I would not trust it on a plane or for being on the road. That being said, I wouldn't trust the Epiphone or Gibson cases for rough handling either. The MF case is fine, just don't ask too much out of it. It's certainly better than a gig bag.

              If you have an SG and want an inexpensive way to protect it in transit, this non-brand case is a good option at 2/3rds the price of the "named" case. Build quality is good and closely resembles the higher priced model. Not perfect but close enough for infrequent travel.

                              It's no worse than the official Gibson SG case

                              Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe SGS Solid-Guitar-Style Hardshell Case:

                              This Musicians Choice product is inexpensive - and no worse than the significantly-more-costly, official, Gibson-branded SG case. That's not saying much, though.

                              The neck rest is about 1/3 of an inch too high. That means that, since the body portion of the case lid has a pad that presses down on your SG's body, closing the case puts serious pressure on the headstock of your guitar. Essentially, unmodified, this case is perfectly designed to break your SG at the headstock, if it's subjected to any, even fairly minor, banging around - such as by airport baggage handlers.

                              If you have modest shop skills - and somewhat more advanced upholstery chops - you can carefully remove the velveteen cloth from the neck rest block, remove the block and sand its bottom down about 1/3 inch, then reinstall (re-glue) the block to the bottom of the case, and then trim and re-glue the velveteen to cover it. Voila! Your SG case now actually PROTECTS your guitar, instead of endangering it.

                              Again, it bears repeating that the Gibson-branded case has EXACTLY the same design defect. The Musicians Choice version is just a slavish copy. If you want actual protection without having to modify the case, buy an ABS-molded, third-party, high-end case and leave both this one and its Gibson equivalent on the shelf.
