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.

The case is better than a Gig Bag, and it fits the circumfrence of my SGJ-14, but the headstock sits hard on the bottom. I keep a small folded towel under the horns and rest my rolled up leather strap under the neck, just past the body, to protect the neck from breaking at the headstock if it takes an accidental fall. I know now why it had such a low price. It has a lock, but no key! Called Musician's Friend TWICE, but still no key. Musician's Friend's return policy would have cost me almost half as much as I paid for the case in order to return it. I've made my last purchase from them. I have buyer's regret, knowing that I should have waited and ordered a TKL or Gibson Case. A very disappointing experience overall.

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

where can you buy ANYTHING this cheap these days? and call and ask for the coupon and they knock off 5 more. ridiculous.

the latches are excellent, but do not snap closed snuggly. will cause zero problems, but it is a hair off of perfection.

the only glaring building issue is the inner compartment. the top wall of it (toward the head of the guitar) is not glued on (but stays in place because it is under the material) and loose. will not cause problems in this lifetime.

Sturdy Enough, Doesn't Fit SGJ Very Well

By Atreides Ghola

from Mayfield, OH

About Me Experienced

Pros

  • Easy To Carry
  • Sturdy

Cons

  • Not Functional
  • Poor Protection

Best Uses

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

    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:

          Guitar case was badly damaged when I unboxed it. There was no damage to the shipping box, so the case most likely left the factory in a damaged condition. Apparently, nobody inspects the cases when they leave the factory. From previous hard cases I've owned, it's quite noticeable why this one is relatively cheap. It has big yellow stitches. The stitching totally missed the leatherette where the damage occurred. I'd enclose a photo, but I have it already boxed up for return & refund.

          I've bought of several of this brand of cases from MF. I loved all the ones I previously bought. This one is very different. The covering material is very cheap feeling. The hinges and latches are flimsy and loose. Even the inside compartment is very flimsy. It fits the guitar well, but its really very cheap feeling. Its so different from the other cases, I must believe they get it made somewhere else.

            A well-designed hardshell case for the Gibson SG - and what a deal! Other reviews have not mentioned that the lid of 5-ply laminate/plywood is arched on the top for stiffer, stronger protection. And the bottom has an incline pad under the velour to angle the SG body just right for the neck to rest nicely on a neck holder and padded compartment lid. If I were to improve the case, I would add 1 additional latch along the neck in the back, but the 3 hinges and 3 latches really do fine. The outside tolex is very tough, with steel hardware including feet on the bottom and back along the hinges and base.

            I've bought four or five cases from Musician's Friend. I love the Musician's Gear acoustic cases. This one is significantly lower quality. Everything is very flimsy and seems like it wont hold together. It feels like its about to just fall apart. The hinges and latches and even inside compartment are very very flimsy and weak. The outside surface feels very cheap. It appears like this is totally a different case than their excellent acoustic cases.
