OVERVIEW

A hardshell case made for Fender's Jaguar or Jazzmaster electric guitars that's ideal for airline travel.

The Jaguar or Jazzmaster-Type hardshell guitar case is molded with proprietary, rubber-modified styrene that provides maximum protection and durability. The guitar case's EPS (expanded polystyrene) plush-lined interior is designed to securely hold either a Fender Jaguar or Fender Jazzmaster guitar.

This SKB guitar case is the first-ever molded case designed specifically for the Jaguar and Jazzmaster-style guitar models and features SKB's patented, fiberglass-reinforced, nylon trigger-release latching system with the inclusion of a TSA-recognized and accepted locking latch. The TSA lock enables you to lock your guitar case, yet still be inspected for airline security. The TSA logo notifies TSA screeners that the latches do not need to be broken for a security check.

Features like a cushioned-rubber, over-molded handle for a comfortable carry with molded-in feet and convenient stacking wells are part of the SKB case's exterior contours that provide added convenience when transporting multiple cases. The Jazzmaster/Jaguar-style guitar case features an accessories compartment and is covered by SKB's unsurpassed, no-fault million-mile guaranty (manufacturer's lifetime warranty).

      Comments about SKB Jaguar or Jazzmaster-Type Hardshell Electric Guitar Case:

      The first thing I look at when I receive an item mailorder is the seal on the box, I always wonder if I am getting something that has been returned by someone else. The box for my case appeared to have the original tape from the factory, so I was to be the first to open it.

      I opened the box and found a that the case was in a large fabric bag which I have never seen before. It made it seem like a more expensive item. I took the case out of the bag to find that there were a few obvious scuffs on the case. I don't know it they happened in the factory of from rough handling during shipping. If I had received a guitar in that shape, I would have sent it back immediately. Since this is a case and I got a good price on it, I did not want to go through the hassle of returning it for an exchange.

      I bought it for my new MIJ Thinline Jag and it fits like a glove. It seemed a little snug at first, but once it had gone in and out a few times all was well.

      I had a really hard time getting the keys to actually go into the key slot, but once I got them in the seemed to be ok.

      This looks to be a sturdy case that will protect the guitar well. The only things I would like to see different would be to have a compartment with a lid on it and for it to not be scuffed up when coming out of the box.

        Comments about SKB Jaguar or Jazzmaster-Type Hardshell Electric Guitar Case:

        Fits my ESP XJ-6 perfectly. Plush black interior with about a foot of solid neck support. Two accessory cavities, plus the large headstock cavity fits unusual shapes, including back-angled ones like mine. The case stacks horizontally if you have multiple guitars with the same case. Not the cheapest case on the market but impressively well built. Don't balk at the price -- remember, a hard case is an investment in your investment!

        Best fitting case I've found for Fender Jaguars and Jazzmasters. More secure than the more expensive and heavier G&G case from Fender.

          Comments about SKB Jaguar or Jazzmaster-Type Hardshell Electric Guitar Case:

          I built a parts Jazzmaster-style guitar and was looking for a case. The Jaguar/Jazzmaster body is a little larger than the typical Strat/Tele body, so it's difficult to find a "universal" fit case that will work - the body cavity and overall length are never big enough. There are a only a couple of hard cases out there that are specifically for the Jag/JM body shape, and all are relatively expensive. I would put this SKB case in that category as well. I got mine on a really great sale around Chrismas, which actually made it less expensive than even the "economy" cases from other makers. I'm very impressed with the case overall. The guitar fits perfectly with absolutely no slop. The case itself is as light as you would expect from a molded case, but seems quite durable, with what appear to be crumple zones or bumpers built in. I'm a sucker for good engineering, and I really like the latches and handle, of all things. The latches have a nice reassuring mechanical "click" when they're closed, and the handle has a nice ergonomic shape and a nice grippy rubber coating. The only things I can nit-pick are that the compartments inside are open, so things could potentially slide around if you have loose items. I haven't had any issues yet, but be careful if you store things like allen wrenches in the case - there's the potential they could slide around and damage the neck or body. The other thing is common to most other molded cases I've used - the aluminum flanges don't always line up perfectly. I think that's just the nature of a foam filled plastic shell. You have to do a little work to align the top/bottom before closing the clasps. Pretty minor, but not something you usually have to deal with on a good wood case. Still, I'll take that minor inconvenience for the weight savings. The only other thing to be aware of is the size, which is really more a function of the guitar size than the design of the case itself. This is larger than your standard Strat/Tele case - about half-way between those and a bass-sized case. Overall a very nice case and definitely a major step up from the typical "economy" wood/plastic cases. I'm knocking off a star based on the couple of niggles mentioned above, assuming the full regular price. If you can get one of these cases for less than a bill, I'd consider it a 5 star.

            Got this case at the end of 2013. It has cut outs for the strap buttons that even fit the schaller strap locks I installed. This case is as sturdy as any I've ever gotten.

            This case arrived today. It fits a Fender Classic Player Jaguar perfectly like a glove. No wiggle room or gaps. This case is light in weight and has a solid sturdy feel, comfortable carry handle and sturdy latches. Storage areas on either side of the neck will hold a strap, tremolo bar, tuner, picks, several sets of strings and a polish cloth. I am very pleased with the overall quality of this case, as I am with my other SKB cases as they provide great protection for my gear.

              Just received this case today and it was a perfect fit for my Fender Jag. Very durable case, yet not extremely bulky. Don't think you will find a better case for the money.
