    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.

      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.

          Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Hollowbody Guitar Case:

          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.

              Thick, padded handle; chunky clasps; plush interior with bolsters in all the right places... Fits like a glove and is a STEAL at this price! My only complaint is that it doesn't come with a black interior :)

              Best for a "back-up" case.

              Handle would not survive "gigging".

              Tight fit for my Epi "Dot".

              Cannot beat the value for the amount paid.

                Great plush case apparently fits 335 style thin body semi hollow body guitars the best- Very nice interior and its way better than an Epi Dot case at nearly much less- mine says it's made by Guardian with the Guardian logo on it!- easily a great value in this case- I'm thinking about ordering a second for a spare - It's so nice! Very pleased with this purchase!

                  A great case for the money, ..... if your guitar fits properly.

                  I purchased because a reviewer said his Delta King fit. Mine will go in if forced, and the result is light scuff marks on the sides of the guitar due to the nice green interior padding being a little rough and not as soft as it appears. Needless to say I was a little disappointed. I will try leaving the guitar in the case and see if the padding takes a set from the constant pressure. I hope it works because apart from the padding being a little rough, it is a very well built quality case.
