    This case is awesome; beautiful AND functional. Very sturdy and I like the five latches. Dimensions have changed from those published by musicians friend: Height is now about 46 inches, not 42. So it will fit epiphones with those honkin' big headstocks now. Neither does it carry the badge near the handle anymore. They must have listened to past feedback to change those: I read those comments in reviews. That being said, I would have preferred the 42 inch height for my Gibson 335 and to have the badge.

    I bought this case for my Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin, as this appeared as a recommendation for that particular guitar model. To my disappointment, the case wouldn't close with the Godin guitar in it. The problem appeared to be the neck support which was too high. I used a Stanley knife to cut open the case lining, ripped out the styrofoam support, and glued the lining back together. Not very pretty, but it worked and the case is now a pretty good snug fit for my Godin.The actual case is pretty sturdy and I expect to get a lot of mileage out of it. I particularly like the handle which is nicely padded and has a thick grip. The gold hardware, including the hinges and the locks, do not feel as sturdy as on my Gibson Les Paul case. The lining is kind of antique green, feels a bit cheap and cheesy, but kind of goes with the gold hardware.

    Absolutely Does Not Fit Loar Hollowbody

      Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Hollowbody Guitar Case:

      First, it doesn't fit a Loar LH-650. The case is deep enough by the bridge, but at the neck it is about an inch and a half shallower. Even though the specifications check out (4" case, 3.75" guitar), there was no way that guitar was going to fit, even after modifications described in the other reviews. However, it is a beautiful case though, with a chunky padded handle and a very solid shell, for a great price. It definitely will do its job. I would recommend this to somebody with a semi-hollowbody any day, just not a deep hollowbody.

        Excellent case for the money!

        I recently traded one of my guitars for an old hollow-body from the 70s and I needed to buy a case for it. I saw this for cheap and with very good reviews, so I bought it. It arrived very fast with no hassle.

        The first thing I did was check for cosmetic defects, the only thing I found was an askew latch. It's not that big of a deal, I just have to add a little strength to force it to close sometimes.

        I then tried the lock, and almost decided to sent the case back. It would not lock no matter how hard I turned the key, and I was putting a lot of strength into it. Finally I turned the key as hard as I could. The key bent, but the case locked. I was then able to effortlessly unlock the case. I can now lock it an unlock it with ease, it was just jammed for some reason the first time. I was also able to straighten the key out, so no problem with that either.

        My guitar fits in the case perfectly. It is very snug and does not move around in the case. The case itself is also quite study, much higher quality than I expected. The padding is also of a higher quality than I had expected of a case with this price.

        The part of the case where the head-stock is located is much larger than it needs to be, and three 20ft cables could easily be stored there. The compartment under the guitars neck is also quite large and I have been able to fit 2 tuners, 2 capos, 2 tins of picks, 3 slides, a string winder, a pan flute, and a harmonica all in there at the same time. This could not be done with any of my other cases.

        The only problem is that this case is heavy. With my guitar in it, it's actually heavy than the main amp I use. Whereas my amp is heavier than my other guitar/case configurations. But it isn't too heavy to carry around.

        Overall, a great buy. I am very happy with this purchase. Yes, there are better hard-shell cases, but for the price this one is excellent.

              Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Hollowbody Guitar Case:

              I bought this case for my Gibson Johnny A jazz arch top electric guitar, because the original was damaged and you can't purchase a new one separately. I live in Hawaii and we have 20 music stores here and not one of them offers a archtop case for sale. That is why I purchase all my musical instruments and supplies from Musicians Friend. The case fits my guitar well and it feels good when I carry it. It looks better than the original case that came with the guitar. I am buying another one for my ES 335 Custom guitar. I would recommend this case to everyone looking for the real deal.

                Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Hollowbody Guitar Case:

                I bought this to fit a Harmony Rocket reissue. there is a wedge of styrofoam under the top bout which raises the guitar too high. The neck doesn't set onto the neck rests. I had to remove the wedge and cut the first neck rest 1/4" to fit the guitar perfectly. I tried an epiphone case, skb. all didn't fit axactly. If the case was 1/2 " deeper, I wouldn't have had to alter it. one week after buying this case, they reduced the price to 79.99. go figure.

                  This is a very nice case; however, if you have a screwdriver, a sharp knife and 5 minutes, you may have to lower the neck rest that is closest to the body of the guitar - simply unscrew the screws, slice +/- 1/4" off of the bottom of the foam rest and reinsert and reinstall the screws - literally took me less than 5 minutes on a LP case that I purchased from the same folks. I will be making the same mod to this case.
