I would always tell friends, family or customers to purchase this case. It's strong, reliable and just perfect for 335's, especially Epiphone's. This is one of the only cases on the market that fit Dot's perfectly, due to the abnormally large headstock shape and size. If you own a Gibson or Epiphone case, upgrade to this one. Worth every penny.
This case is absolutely perfect for an Epiphone Dot. I am a Luthier by trade, and my guitar began to warp in the middle of the neck because of an ill shaped case. As soon as I placed my Epiphone into this case, within 3 days, the warp disappered. As a Luthier, I strongly suggest anyone who has a Dot to buy this case. Well worth the money
THis case is as solid as a rock. Made from military grade materials, you can throw it down a set of stairs and not have an issue. Looks and feels great when carrying as wel.
Price is not an issue for me when it comes to cases, because of such issues that come with ill shaped cases or just cheap ones that can severly damage your guitar from small accedents. In short, the value is quite tremendous.

My dad bought me this case 5 months and i must say,the case resists bangs and scratches but not at a great scale.The reason i say this is beacause some jerk at school tipped it over and ES-335 broke inside the case other than that the case is perfectly crafted and it keeps your guitar sealed inside without it wabbling around.

Doesn't fit

By whatever747

Comments about SKB Thin Body Semi-Hollow Guitar Case:

I bought this case for my Tokai LS-120, which is an exact copy of a Gibson ES-335. This case doesn't accomodate the steep angle of the headstock. In fact, the tip of the headstock rests on the bottom of the case unless you prop up the neck with something, which I did(socks). I suspect that's how the other reviewer's guitar got broken inside the case. I bought this because of SKB's great reputation, and their LP case fits my Tokai LP like a glove, with the same headstock angle. I don't know what happened when they designed this case but I'm sorely disappointed.

Fit my Montage like a glove - except it wouldn't close

Comments about SKB Thin Body Semi-Hollow Guitar Case:

I bought this for my Ibanez Montage based on dimensions, and when I laid the guitar in the case, it was absolutely a perfect fit. Only problem was the pickup selector switch keeps the case from closing. If you want to use this for a guitar other than the ES335, consider the placement of pickup selector switches. Too bad they didn't leave spaces in the lid in areas where switches are commonly placed, so as to make the case suitable for more guitar models of identical size.

    Ordered it with my Gretsch G5422T, but it's not deep enough to accomodate the Bigsby. Musician's Friend Customer Service was GREAT in accepting the return.

          This is a great case for the money...I have a Eppy 335...she fits like a glove...only thing to otherwise mention is the neck is only supported by the top cradle ....body side one does not touch and you are not getting a strap in there unless it is a nylon folded up...but great case and as usual..M.F. Double boxed and fast delivery...Happy with the case..

          Comments about SKB Thin Body Semi-Hollow Guitar Case:

          I purchased a Fender Starcaster Semi Hollow guitar and Fender doesn't make a case for it. They do make a gigbag but that isn't actually the best solution in my opinion. I wanted something a little more heavy duty. After talking with several experts who assured me this case wouldn't work with a Fender Starcaster, well I got the case anyways. The Starcaster fits nicely in the case. It is heavy duty and I am confident the guitar is protected now.

              I bought the case for a 1970's vintage Yamaha semi-hollow body, and I could not be happier with the quality of the case - the guitar fits like a glove. Fit and finish on the case itself are very good, and the latches and hinges are quite sturdy.

                      Won an Epiphone Dot Studio on an online auction for less than this case costs new, and the case came with it. The guitar was still in tune, after being "aggressively" shipped from Washington State to Tennessee. The case fits the guitar tight and right, cradles it perfectly when I'm not using it. Light, strong, and secure. I can't say about the others, but it has been perfect for my Dot Studio, my very favorite electric slide guitar, affectionately known as Mighty Whitey.

                          I recently bought an Epiphone Dot at a guitar show without a case. I decided on SKB since I own a Fender case with TSA latches. The case arrived within 5 days and I could not be more pleased. Though I will probably won't travel with this guitar on an airplane, it is certainly sturdy enough to do so. Also, the SKB fits my 335 perfectly and seals tighter than standard Fender or Gibson cases.

                                  Have had this case for 5 years now for my Epiphone Riviera. It fits like a glove just like the case was made for the guitar. The case has a few scuffs on the outside from use, but the guitar has never moved once in the case. Worth the money. Buy it. You will be satisfied.

                                  Have another SKB for my Les Paul. Same as above-it fits perfect. Worth every penny.
