This is the second Silver Creek case I bought, and also the second review I've left. I was concerned about the neck rest being too high as was stated in other reviews. The one I got required no modifications. The second one I got had the neck rest too high and I had to trim it like others had said. Use a phillips and a razor knife. I took off 1/2" and it was perfect. It took only 5 minutes.

As others have mentioned, when I laid my guitar in the case the neck hovered about an inch above the neck rest by the headstock due to the neck rest closest to the body being to high. I have laid the guitar in cases friends had and never was this an issue. I could reach around the body and feel the body by the neck was also about an inch off of the case. When closting the case it would not close all the way unless I pushed down on the lid. Not sure how much pressure that puts on the neck, but this is not normal despite what someone else has said. I removed the neck rest closest to the body and cut it down which was very easy since it's styrofoam and two thin pieces of wood on the sides. I re-glued the fabric and reinstalled the neck rest. The neck now sits perfectly in both neck rests and the lid closes without putting pressure on the neck. Guitar now sits nice in the case and does not move around. Took about 25 mins to make the modification.

      Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

      Very nice case indeed; however, it does require modification to the lower neck rest (closest to the body of the guitar). A screwdriver, a sharp knife and 10 minutes is all it will take to shave 3/8" off of the bottom of the foam rest and reinstall for a perfect fit for your Epipone Les Paul...

      Not a bad case for the money, but it does require some minor fitting mods.....

      Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

      Overall about a C+ in my book. Some assembly required.
      Like others have stated, you must trim off the bottom of the middle neck rest and re-install it, because it's too high. This is pretty easy and it doesn't damage the lining, so it's not really a big deal for the average tweaker. Tools required: Phillips screwdriver and pocket knife.

      Aside from that: my favorite feature is the lining. It's every bit as plush and velvety as the pictures online. The green color is also very appealing and vintage looking.

      The clasps are ok, and the outer lining is ok.
      Quality is OK for the money. Not flawless, but not total junk either.
      For the money, you can't really complain.

          I think this is one of the best deals i have made in a long time ! The case is worth twice what i paid for it. If you are considering buying this case go for it..If you are worried about the bad reviews, don't. The part they are complaining about is made of soft styrophome and can be pushed down easily. It makes a very nice snug fit on your guitar neck. Just remember some people complain way too much, if that is you, spend your money on a Gibson case.

          NOT SILVER CREEK DOESNT FIT HOFNER CLUB

          By Hofner Case Searcher

          from NJ

          About Me Experienced

          Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

          This case was suggested to me by Musician's Friend Concierge service to fit my Hofner CT club guitar. This case does not fit however. Too shallow. As many have said before, i think I was shipped a Guardian brand, not a Silver Creek. There is no distinguishing markings or tags on the case however. I was assured by the MF customer service that they would not ship something other than what was ordered but it looks like that is not the case. The only saving grace is that MF works very well with helping to resolve these issues and get the case returned.

            I bought this with my Epi LP Standard - but it doesn't fit. As others have mentioned, the neck rest is too tall, so the guitar rests high in the case, such that when you close the lid it puts pressure on the headstock. I don't want to have to mess around modifying my case, I just want it to fit. So this one is going back.

            Fits Hofner CT Club Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar!

            By MarigoldBright

            from Los Alamos, NM

            See all my reviews

            Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

            This is the only case that I could find to fit my Hofner CT Club Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar. My Hofner has the same dimensions as a Gibson Les Paul but has a deeper body. The Hofner fits nicely into Gibson style LP cases, but the lids do not close because the cases are too shallow. Cases designed for Epiphone style LP guitars are too big and my Hofner would rattle around in them. This case fits my Hofner CT Club perfectly, nice and snug.The quality of this case is outstanding. The built in hygrometer is nice. The only downside is that I have to remove my heavy 3-inch leather strap before putting the guitar in the case. I plan to put on strap locks to make it easier to put the strap on and off.I would buy this case again if I ever lost mine.

            Maybe they shipped the wrong one?

            By Devilrouser

            from Florida

            Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

            First off, the case I got said "Guardian Cases" (totally different brand from "Silver Creek") I think they sent the wrong one! It was way too deep for a Les Paul guitar (more like it was made for a hollow body or acoustic guitar) - it's a shame because it was a very nice looking case, but my Les Paul fit by length and all the rest, however the neck (as mentioned by other reviewers) just didn't rest right. It was impossible! it just lay all crooked and no way to close the case with guitar inside, I put a pillow to fill the extra space but then, why would I buy a brand new case and do that? This case was not made for a Les Paul. Maybe I had bad luck, don't know. Also, the build was a bit lacking, the case is made of plastic and although it looks like quality, it's all superficial. I would stay away from this one. Returned it today.

                Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

                The case didn't come close to fitting the Fender Stratacoustic I was told it would fit. I had an Epiphone Les Paul Special that fit "OK" so I just used it for that rather than dealing with shipping it back. Unfortunately I had to put a piece of foam under the rear of the body so it still isn't a good fit. The outside covering was separating in a few spots where it wasn't glued and there were some bumps that looked like they glued the covering over something. Some interior seams and some of the velvet was glued unevenly. The velvet was also pretty low quality. Overall, not a horrible case but I was looking for a little higher quality. It also looks pretty sturdy. The fact that it didn't fit the guitar I was told it would fit was the biggest disappointment. Overall, not a bad value but if I saw it before buying it and of course if I knew it didn't fit I wouldn't have bought it. Not a happy customer at all.

                Vintage Les Paul Case

                By Les Paul Bluesman

                from Virginia

                Comments about Silver Creek Vintage Archtop Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

                This case is THE BEST. I own this case and after reading several negative comments by others here I have to offer another different review. The comment about the neck rest being too high is nonsense. When the lid is closed it holds the guitar firmly in place. Removing material on a bandsaw and replacing the plush would cause the guitar to wobble around. The comment about the case not being long enough is also nonsense. This case is for a Gibson Les Paul and not an Epiphone Les Paul which is slightly longer. Epiphone must do this so that their guitar cannot be mistaken for a Gibson. The comment from someone about dropping their case and damaging their guitar is simple. Don't drop it anymore. This case is intended for use between your home base and your destination in a trunk or in a van. Period. It is not intended to be dropped off a truck at 55 mph the same way it is not intended to be waterproof in 100 feet of water. If your guitar was damaged in this way then file an insurance claim, don't blame the guitar case people. By the way, I also like the built-in case hygrometer. I recommend this case for anyone owning a Les Paul sized guitar.

                I was also sent the "Guardian" brand instead of the one shown, and it does NOT fit either the Hofner Club or an Epiphone LP Special. Too bad; it seems like a decent case otherwise, and maybe Gibsons will fit: I don't know. The headstocks on both my guitars are too tall for this case.

                    My Les Paul Tribute guitar fits perfectly in the case. This is a very good case for a non professional. It's not a Gibson but it does the job at a third of the price. Good looking vintage green felt inside with 5 gold latches, 1 of which locks. Definitely worth the small price to protect my gear.

                        This case fit my new Les Paul. The pad over the bridge was a little snug, but that will ease over time. The inner green crushed velvet lining is to die for. The picture of it on line sold me on this case. It is just as georgeous as pictured. You could bury me in this case, it is that plush. Hardware is fine. This is a fabulous value at this price.

                            This case fits my 2017 LP Tribute T very nicely. No issues of any kind. I suspect those who had to alter the case at the lower neck rest have guitars without the necessary neck angle. This case will not properly fit LPs with straighter neck angles.

                                I was apprehensive because of the comments of some who had to mod the case to get it to fit. But it was so good looking with the green crushed velvet that I could not resist taking the chance, especially as the price was so attractive. Not to worry, however. My Les Paul 2017 Tribute fit petfectly. The padding over the bridge was very snug, but that will ease over time. There is no slipping or sliding in the fit. My LP has a lot of backset of the neck, however, so no modding of either neck block was necessary. The green crushed velvet lining is beautiful, you could bury me in this case. A great value.

                                  This is a very nice case for the money.I use it for my Harley Benton SC Custom and it is tight with out any movement.My 2016 Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded and my 2017 Tribute fit in nice and tight except there is a little movement,1/8",back and forth. Not enough to be concerned with responsible handling but wouldn't trust it with rough handling by roadies. I gave it 4 stars only because of the little bit of movement with my Gibsons.

                                    This is a quality case. I was a bit concerned because of other reviews indicating the neck support had to be changed but after a conversation with a representative at MF I was convinced my Epiphone Les Paul would fit very nicely in this case with no modifications which it did. That is not to say that it won't work for other guitars with some adjustments but it fit mine like a glove as is.

                                      All in all a decent case for the money but I was hoping for a much more plush interior. Fabric is a bit scratchy feeling and I'm not even sure I want to put my Les Paul in it. My new Gibson Les Paul HP came with an aluminum flight type of case that's very heavy to carry around so I thought this may be an alternative just to run around here an there with the guitar and I guess it is but I'm not confident that the beautiful finish won't be compromised in this case. However I would have no problem putting my satin finish Les Paul's or maybe a guitar that's a bit worn. It's too much trouble for me to return so I will use it for something but I would prefer the musicians friend case that I had bought prior that had a very plush interior.
