    This case has 6 latches which make it take a bit time consuming to close and open. These latches have to be fastidiously aligned before fastening, they won't just align and snap shut casually. The accessory compartment is small unlike the Roadrunner Stratocaster/Telecaster case I bought which has a second compartment for a strap and long enough (21 foot) cable. This case has me carrying my guitar cable in my hand or rolled up and set inside of my amplifier. A Gibson Les Paul Junior fits into this case width-wise but does flop forward if you walk and shakeor tilt the case while the guitar is inside of it, unlike my 1999 Epiphone SG case which fits like a glove. Still, of all the cases I tried- this is the best quality and it wont tear like tolex. Should last a long time because of the materials used and contoured dimensions of the math skills that went into developing it.

    Will Not Last A Lifetime

    I bought this case for my Epiphone Les Paul Plus Top Pro. I have used it to carry my guitar to Jazz Band for 2 years, it has seen very little abuse:

    -All the metal pieces(hinges, locks, frame, key) are VERY cheap aluminium. This led to one of the hinges being bent inhibiting the case from closing until I fixed it. The key is just a generic cut out that also bends easily and will not stop anyone from breaking into the case if they really wanted to, but it will assure you that no one is playing your guitar while you're not there. Even with my never used backup key the lock will no longer unlock making it a now useless feature.

    -The interior is just a hard Styrofoam mold with some felt glued to it, it is not soft, cushy padding like my TKL case, but it serves its purpose and I've never had a problem with it

    -The inside compartment is big enough for strings, picks, a slide, & tuner. You will probably not be able to put your strap in there with other stuff, but this is not a problem because I can leave the strap on and fold it over the face of the guitar and close the case just fine(taking your strap off after every use will wear out the holes and it will slip off the strap pegs. Solution: waste money on strap locks, or simply invest in a decent strap and don't ruin it.)

    Conclusion: For the money I'm sure there is something else out there, but it serves its purpose. THERE IS NO WAY THIS WILL LAST YOU A LIFETIME. We will see if it holds up another 2 years of ordinary use.

        I was looking for a case to protect the first guitar I ever bought when I was sixteen. It's a Montaya LP copy. This case is built sturdy and compact and also includes an accessory compartment for strings and other things. Simply put it fits like a glove. I am very happy with this case.

        Crazy phone special, outstanding value for the price. Solid case, fits my les paul like a glove. Case comes with a lock. Only drawback if there is one, may be that there are too many buckles.

        Comments about Road Runner RRMELP ABS Molded Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

        I was looking for a solid hard shell case for my PRS Tremonti SE and looked at others that were either too lose or too expensive. Found this RR and was hooked. Fits my PRS perfect. I like that it has a cutout for the neck on the lid. Lots of space for the headstock so the tuning machines don't get bumped and knocked out of tune. Yeah it has a small storgae area, but I don't use the case except for a quick travel or take it in for a service call. An extra set of strings, picks, and tools is all I need in the case. With the thin body on the PRS SE it will work great. A Gibson style thicker body might be a bit too tight. The only minor down side is that the back snap closure is a little snug to close, but will do. Oh!... and the price is within range.

          Great case for Gibson Les Paul Special

          Comments about Road Runner RRMELP ABS Molded Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

          For the price I paid (MF Deal of the Day) and the fit for my application (Gibson LP Special), I'm very very satisfied.
          Fits Gibson LP Special "almost" perfectly. The upper and lower bout fit very well but there's a little gap at the mid bout. Nothing that bothers me much though because the guitar still sits fairly tightly in the case. The accessories pocket is nice with a hinged door. The neck fits nicely in two places: 1) at the neck/body joint, 2) at the neck/headstock joint. The weight is therefore balanced and not putting excessive force at the neck/headstock joint like some cases, which can snap the neck at the headstock. Bottom-line, case is a very good fit for my guitar.
          Quality is very good with an aluminum binding running the entire length of the top and bottom halves of the opened edges, that seal together when closed. There are 5 latches and 2 hinges on the version that I own. The handle is comfortable and balances well when carried. The ABS is slightly flimsy, being less rigid than a wooden case, but more than adequate protection for my needs. Also, no stink like some cheap cases.
          I purchased from MF for Deal of the Day, so the price was excellent!!! Normal price, I would rate maybe as a 7 or 8.

          Depends on what you need in a hard case

          Comments about Road Runner RRMELP ABS Molded Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

          Not as well design as my rectangular Strat type case by Road Runner. This is a good sturdy case. IMHO it is best used for home storage of a Les Paul type guitar. As a case for a giging musician it falls short in 2 main areas
          (1)The extremely small interior storage compartment is one of my major complaints. The storage compartment will only hold a small clip on tuner and thin strap without strap locks or the tuner and a spare set of strings. Not all 3. Want to use it to carry a heavy leather strap forget it. Expecting to be able to store anything more than a thin 6 foot cable? Nope that doesn't fit either.
          The usable area of the storage compartment is approximately 7" x 3.75" x 1.25, rendering it pretty much useless for a working musician or anyone wanting to store and transport anything other than your guitar in the case.
          (2) The other area of complaint is the extremely tight interior. As previously noted in other reviews, plan on manually compressing some of the padding to get you standard sized Gibson or Epiphone LP to fit. The interior padding is so thick under the back of the guitar that the neck does not touch any of the under neck support area. The strings do however make a nice solid imprint in the top of the neck area. Actually a SG style guitar (and possibly the thinner body guitars like the Epiphone LP Special II) fit much better than the typical thick body LP.

          I was hoping for a good sturdy scuff resistant case to haul my LP around in. Unfortunately for my needs as a gigging part time musician this case falls short. It is a good at home storage case, but not a good transport to gig case. If you dont want to carry anything other than your guitar in your case, you are willing to do a little manual compression of the interior and you can purchase it at the stupid deal price, the case is a good buy. Other wise Id look at something else.
          Hard ABS plastic exterior, 6 latches (one with standard mini-key), comfortable handle, balances well, good (maybe too much) interior padding. Pretty much your standard ABS guitar case features.
          See exception and reason for lower score in OVERALL below.
          Well made case sturdy case. Hinges seem well made, upper and lower portions of the case line up properly. Nice soft furry interior. I'm not crazy about the latches that require you to carefully align the protruding latch tang into the lower part of the latch in order for it to latch. But once closed the case seems to be secure.
          At full street price, I wouldn't give this case a second look. At the "stupid deal" price it is a good buy for a storage case.

          For the price I paid and the quality I'm extremely happy I got this case.
          It has all the features a case can have I guess. Locks and a handle.
          Seems like an extremely strong case but still light weight and gives my les Paul a snug fit so no bouncing around.
          I got mine on sale so it was an amazing value. Even at the regular price I would still recommend this case.

          ABS LP Guitar Case

          Comments about Road Runner RRMELP ABS Molded Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

          Very happy and so is my Epi LP
          Good quality but tight fit, as Epi LP only fits without stap which requires strap to be taken off and put back on each time. Get some good strap locks also.
          Very good quality build
          What more could you want from Deal of the Day

          Comments about Road Runner RRMELP ABS Molded Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

          Like I have already stated, it is a well built full featured case that more than does the job. I gig out every week and after when you are packing up you sometimes are not "gentle" when you pack up. I know that this case will keep my baby safe from harm.
          Hardshell exterior, plush interior and 6 latches to keep your baby from falling out.
          Solid and well built. It's tougher than a wood case but a lot lighter. I don't have a roadie so your's truely has to lug all of his stuff around. Heavy is not always better.
          Less expensive than a Gibson case and it does the job. If you need the logo, put a sticker on it.
