    Well I got this case with my epi custom les paul, and i was very impressed with it, but the most impressive thing to happen with so far is that i was driving about 45-50 mph headed to church to play and somehow my tailgate falls down and my guitar slides out and slides across the road. i thought for sure my guitar was going to be snapped in half when i opened the case, but it was still in tune. so i have the say this is an amazing durable case. can't go wrong.

    I purchased this case for a 2013 Gibson Les Paul Traditional. The case is well-made and quite sturdy. Most definitely more robust than the Gibson case (black with white "fur" interior) that came with my guitar. The TSA latches on the SKB case are very impressive. A huge step up from standard latches.

    On the negative side however, my Les Paul does not fit perfectly inside this case. When placed inside, it is very possible to move the guitar both right/left and up/down. There is only a single neck support within the case and it is possible to "bottom out" the head-stock on the bottom of the case. A double neck support (as the Gibson case features) would offer much more protection.

    That being said, when the case is closed, it seems the guitar does not move around inside, so regardless of the poor fit when open, the case does perform it's job acceptably.

    Although this is indeed a very nice case, I was quite disappointed with the amount of movement of the guitar and lack of adequate neck support. I'll use it for the time being, but will be looking into other, more precise fitting cases in the future. For the price of this case, there are much better fitting alternatives available.

          Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

          I bought this case for my Line6 JTV-59. The guitar fits very snuggly. The new latch design makes it easy to open and close the case. To open you stick your finger behind the latch and pull. To close you just push it closed until it clicks. There are 5 latches (one on the back) so even if one were to break, the guitar would still be secure. The handle is padded but with a hard rubber. The case comes with a key for locking one of the latches. There is your typical storage space behind the top of the neck, room for about one 18" cable.

                    Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

                    I bought this case as soon as I got my 2012 Les Paul Studio. Sure, it's just a studio model, but I put a lot of money into the electronics of all of my guitars, so I want them to be protected. It fits pretty well, but there is about one inch of space around the body. I use Dimarzio ClipLock straps, so I just run the clips along the side of the guitar, and it holds it in place. I've had my Les Paul fall over more times than I could count in this case, and it has seen no damage from it. It offers great protection. My only complaint about my case is the strap. Maybe it's just mine, but the strap is too short. If I leave it sitting on a flat surface, the case won't stay open on its own. I have to hold it open when I put the guitar in or remove it, which is a bit of a hastle. Nevertheless, I just got myself another Les Paul, and I think I'll be buying another one of these to protect my new beauty.

                        Best case for the money if you wanna protect your Les Paul. The only small complaint I have is that my case is a little uneven at the headstock end. I have to make sure its lined up before I can latch it. Other than that, Im sure it could withstand a drop from a three story building.

                              I was looking for a good quality case for my Line6 JTV 59. This is it. Fits like a glove.
                              A solid and well constructed product at this price point.
