        Comments about SKB Explorer/Firebird-Type Guitar Hardshell Case:

        I bought this case for my Edwards Explorer. I gave it four stars because I really like the case and think its great, but my guitar doesn't fit soundly in it. I'm going to assume this is because it was made to countour many different guitars and not just one. I've decided to keep it and overall I'm pretty happy with it, except for the lock. The lock is a straight up joke. The keys too.

        Love this case! Great neck protection (much better than Gibson or Epiphone) for my Firebird.

        Not A Good Guitar Case

        Comments about SKB Explorer/Firebird-Type Guitar Hardshell Case:

        For what I paid for this case I taught that it would be a best case for my Firebird guitar. Boy was I wrong the SKB case is made in China AND IS TOTAL GARBAGE. The guitar does not fit in the case very good, and there is a 3/32 gap when you close the case. And also cheap locking hardware, no quailty at all. This is the worst case that you can by for your guitar, Your better off with a gigbag.

        nice case

        Comments about SKB Explorer/Firebird-Type Guitar Hardshell Case:

        This is a very nice case. It's built to take whatever abuse you have. I bought it over the Epiphone case because most of the guitars I own are either Firebirds or similar guitars. It fits my Gibson neck-thru Firebird V and the Epiphone set-neck Firebird Studio with a Bigsby B5 wonderfully. I also have a bolt-on neck Epiphone Firebird (Slasher) and a bolt-on Explorer copy (an old Hondo) that do not fit as the neck joint does not sit right in the case. I also have a set-neck Gibson RD Standard that does not fit due to the lower horn shape (although it looks similar to a Firebird). The case could be modified to fit these guitars. So overall, the case is GREAT for Gibson Firebird/Explorer (just like it says) and that's about it.

        Great case, but not for me...

        Comments about SKB Explorer/Firebird-Type Guitar Hardshell Case:

        This case is top of the line. But, CAUTION: THIS CASE DOES NOT FIT A MOCKINGBIRD. I thought I would give it a try, and it is really close, but the neck portion of the cradle is too long for the BC Rich Mockingbird, and consequently the lid won

        Case data

        Comments about SKB Explorer/Firebird-Type Guitar Hardshell Case:

        It is a fine case overall but it doesn't fit my epiphone prophecy futura that I bought it for. With some mutilation guitar is accepted. Would say this case is much better suited to a Firebird then the Explorer types and would suggest building a differnet case for each guitar instead of a " one size fits some " case.

        If You Want Protection!

        By BmanCV-60

        from Hanover, MD

        Comments about SKB Explorer/Firebird-Type Guitar Hardshell Case:

        I originally ordered the Epiphone case along with my Firebird Studio, and my heart sank when I saw the box damaged. So was the case, I decided I needed better quality; the SKB delivers in spades! This thing is a TANK; the pictures don't give you any idea how big it really is, but its one of a few made for Firebirds and I have no doubt it will do the job. The quality is excellent, they didn't go cheap anywhere. You get what you pay for definitely applies here!
