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:

      I use this for a Chapman ML-2 Les Paul style guitar the body is flat so when it sits in the case the neck will rise 1 1/2 inch off of the neck support. I fix this by putting a small towel under the rear end of the guitar. That levels it up fine. That's the only issue with this case with my guitar shape.

          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.

            The Marauder was without a case when I bought it and needed one for more protection than a gig bag. This case was reasonably priced and fit perfectly.

                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.

                  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.

                    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...

                      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.

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

                      from Brew City

                      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.
