I bought this case HOPING that it was a good value and as robustly built as it looked on line. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. This thing fit my Gibson Les Paul like a glove and it's extremely durable. I find this one to be built as well as an SKB for half as much.

I've purchased Musicians Gear cases in the past with mixed results. Normally, I am concerned about the protective value that their cases offer. This is NOT one of those. I recommend this case for your Gibson LP without reservation.

Ok, bought it for 59 greenbacks on sale. Let me say you truly do get what you pay for. I purchased the other musicians gear abs case for a Stratocaster and was really impressed. So I thought I'd buy one for my epiphone FX pro les paul. Well, let me say it is very light weight, the padding is non existent, more like hard shipping Styrofoam covered with cheap shag carpet. This should retail for about 39 greenbacks. The neck doesn't rest all the way down on the top of the storage compartment, although there is a form fitting depression on the top portion for the neck. The body and head stock fit ok, just no real support for the neck, it is not cradled. Ships in two shipping boxes and wrapped in an additional felt bag, like the strat case came in...nice touch. Oh, and yes it has SIX buckles instead of five, a little over kill. They should save the money on a buckle and use it for better padding.

        I bought this case because the original case for my LP is falling apart. What a GREAT purchase! This case is built like a tank, has a nice, soft furry lining and my LP fits in it perfectly. It's built much better than Gibson, Epiphone and ESP factory cases.

                    I have an Epiphone Les Paul Studio and it fit the case well. No problem with the Epi's big headstock. I did not want a gig bag due to the reputation that Les Paul style guitars have for breaking at the end of the neck but not being a professional musician that travels and gigs a lot, I did not want to put a lot of dough in a case I would only use a few times a year. This should work very well.

                        These were on backorder for like 5 weeks but it was worth the wait. The case is very sturdy with a plush lining. It fits my ESP LTD EC-256 perfectly. My only minor complaint is there are one too many clasps. It is on the back side near the hinge so I always forget to undo it before trying to open the case. Then, thwap! It opens abruptly. I'm sure I'll start remembering soon. I can't imagine a better case at this price point.

                        Bought two of these for an Orville Les Paul Standard and a Burny Les Paul Custom and this case fit both guitars perfectly. Great quality, solid little case and once you figure in the price, there's no better choice. Every guitar deserves a good case!

                              Comments about Musician's Gear MGMELP Molded ABS Electric Guitar Case:

                              If you have an LP Junior and are looking for a HSC, you have arrived. The fit is close to perfect for an Epiphone LP Jr. This case has six (6) latches, four on the front that you can see and two on the rear that you don't see, so DON"T try to force the lid open because you forgot to unlatch all six! If you went to UNC, take one of your shoes off so you can count to six.

                              This case is ideal for home storage and/or local auto travel. If you are flying or putting your guitar in a cargo truck with anvil cases, I would suggest buying a TSA/heavy duty case. This is a good case, but I suspect it would not withstand the multiple and determined indignities that the trained gorillas employed by our nation's airlines seem to enjoy dishing out.

                              It does have a touch of that "new case funk smell". I gave it a few shots of Febreeze, let it air dry and everything was wonderful. Until Axe makes a spray for cases, Febreeze is your friend.

                              This is a good general utility case for a great price.

                                  This case is pretty much what I wanted. I bought an Epi Les Paul and didn't want to put it in a flimsy gig bag, and I also did not want to spend a lot on a case. This one was on sale for around 60 so I took a shot.
                                  The Epi fits perfectly in it. Couldn't be a better fit. It is pretty solid and I think it will do the job for a very long time. It has six latches to hold it tightly closed and the interior is plush and protects the guitar very nicely. The outside looks and feels like it can stand up to normal abuse very well.
                                  I am happy with this case and would buy it again.

                                      I bought this case for a newly acquired Epiphone Les Paul. I didn't want to spend a lot and admittedly took a bit of a chance on this one based on other reviews and the photos seemed to show solid construction. Well, the photos weren't misleading. This is a very solidly built case and either one of my Les Pauls fit perfectly inside. There's no wiggle room, so the guitars are secure, and the "stuff' compartment is actually large enough to hold a tuner pedal and a couple cables along with a pack of strings and some picks. Good stuff.

                                        Fits my Epiphone Les Paul very well. Seems to be pretty sturdy and the neck is supported well. It has six latches, which seemes a little goofy, four would have been plenty, and watch out: the latches are finger pinchers if you're not careful. That's my only knock. For the price, it's worth it.

                                              Great case for the price. My Epiphone Les Paul fits like a glove. I believe it will work for keeping my guitar from dings and scratches.

                                              I'm using this for a 70's Tribute Gibson LP. Very good body fit. There is a ramp underneath the upper body / neck joint which angles the upper body and neck up enough that the neck doesn't sit all the way down in the rest located at the headstock pocket. That is the only real neck support area in the case. It does allow the neck to sit down enough so that the edges of the rest keep the neck from sliding, side to side. There doesn't appear to be much, if any more, clearance between the headstock and floor of the case than there is a gap between the neck and the neck rest. That would possibly present a different concern. There is a channel for the neck in the case lid. Between this and the sides of the neck rest, the neck / guitar doesn't appear to slide around in the case. But the lack of neck support would be a concern if I were to use this case regularly for transporting the guitar. My primary use if for protection and storage at home. It should serve that purpose very well. Most reviews mention "perfect fit" so I don't know if consistency is a QC issue, or maybe it accommodates some models better than others. But what I mention has also been pointed out in a couple reviews. I like the 6 latches and they are decent enough. They do require aligning a little tab in order to close them, not a big deal. The metal brackets that hold the handle are thin, something to keep an eye on. Interior isn't very plush but it's soft enough and should provide protection. Outer shell is thicker than I've seen on some more expensive cases. I'm rating 4 stars based on my intended use and the price paid. It's a good value. If I needed this for transporting the guitar frequently, I'd be disappointed due to the lack of neck support. I've owned a different brand (RR) case that I used for a Studio. From memory, the interior was a little more plush and the neck sat properly in the rest. Other than that, I believe it's the same case.

                                              I owned one of these cases a couple years ago and the quality now is even better. It holds my Gibson 70s Tribute Les Paul perfectly and safely. I believe this case can handle the rigors of the road just fine. Instead of the usual 4-5 latches, This has 6. Only fault I could find is the accessory door is kind of flimsy. Lightweight, Tough, Protective. What more else could you need for your Les Paul? Fast shipping and Perfect customer service from MF as always.

                                              This is really One Nice Case! Great Value! I wish my other Les Pauls had this case. I really like the hardshell molded cases compared to the tolex covered cases mainly because the tolex coverd cases scratch and, ding so easily. I purchased this for an Epiphone Les Paul Special II and, the fit is perfect.

                                              Not much to say. It is was it is. A nicely plush lined lightweight case that holds the "Les Paul" style guitar. The holes on the latches are located toward the front of the latch and as a result, you have to maneuver the latch a bit to get it to close. Not taking off points for that. Les Paul style guitars have a headstock that tilts back and is very prone to cracking. I originally bought a gig bag for my Epi paul but decided very quickly to get it into a hard case with support for the neck. This case does that in spades. Good looks, very protective and a plush lining all look to be high quality. Since I just got the case, I won't comment on the durability of the case. But it looks like it could take a good hit and still keep the guitar protected. Try one today!

                                              I was very surprised when opening the box..this case looks and feels like one costing three or four times as much....it fits my Epiphone Les Paul nicely....It is light yet stong..the hardware is a much better quality than other budget cases I own including Epiphones. any time I need a case in the future I'll check this brand first
