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've owned two SKB Strat cases with the TSA locks and they've been on several flights as well as hundreds of local gigs so I was already familiar with the product. The Strat cases look almost like they did the day I got them. That's the beauty of molded plastic over tolex covered. The SKB TSA Les Paul case has great latches, the guitar fits snug when closed. A little wiggle room when opened. The valance is improved, it closes easier. In my opinion, the best case for the working musician with player quality guitars.

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

    Nice case! I bought this product to fit a PRS SE 245 after many hours of researching the internet. Not a lot of good info about cases to fit an SE 245 online. The PRS' body is almost identical to a Les Paul's. The guitar fits perfectly except the strings on the upper part of the neck touch the interior of the top. The PRS' neck seems to be at a slightly different angle than a Les Paul's neck. To remedy this I put a small polishing cloth under the lower bout to correct the angle of the neck while sitting in the case. Now it sits perfectly. Fits like a glove. If you don't mind doing this I recommend the case. I tried 3 other brands of cases for Les Pauls that did not fit as well. Some did not match their manufacturers specs online. This one did. So this is your best bet for a PRS SE 245 single cut guitar. The quality is good, but I would not compare it to SKB's higher priced cases. All relative to what you want to spend. Considering the SE is not an expensive guitar I would say the case is a good match for it if you are not happy keeping your guitar in the gig bag it comes with. I found my guitar was out of tune every time I took it out of the gig bag. Not sure I would trust this case for multiple airline travels considering how rough baggage handlers are. But good protection for storage and local travels in a car.

        Fits ESP LTD EC series guitar as expected. Has nice feel and carries at a comfortable angle on the grip. Glad I bought this rather than the plywood base case by ESP.

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

          Web was accurate, my SE Mikael Akerfeldt fit, only requires a washcloth under lower-bout to properly elevate for a perfect, fit. Material used/ assembly give the handle (0) free-play=it is stiff, really only may become issue as time will have its affect. Either the mount at case will begin to give-out,(most-likely), or the plastic mateing ball-n-socket joint will "break-in"? Latches, hinges, body and interior, all acceptable quality.

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

                I've been using SKB cases for many years. The 66 series have fit my SuperStrat shred sticks very well.

                When shopping for a case for my Epiphone Les Paul PlusTop Pro/FX, there was some concern going around about how the Epi head is a little longer than the Gibson. I gave the SKB-56 a try and it fits perfectly.

                The body fits snug to keep the guitar from slipping and sliding. It seems like the area for the headstock is fitted ideally. The lid comes down all the way, so as to confirm the fitted padding is just right and not too much of anything is putting pressure on any parts.

                  This is a well constructed and affordable guitar case. It fits my Warmoth Regal Les Paul like a glove. It is sturdy and offers very good protection for across town or across country travel. The heavy duty latches line-up properly and function good. It arrived on time and well packaged.
                  I highly recommend it.
