i bought this guitar case today at my local guitar case and immediately i rushed home to test it on my guitar. perfect fit. the only problem is that when you get it, you have to leave the guitar in for overnight to fully mold the styrofoam because the dude says that when the people made the case the styrofoam expands a little. no biggie. exellent quality it is so durable. it holds the guitar in place if you ever bump into anything and the other cases i tried, the headstock rattled and it was under pressure because of the angle of the headstock. the only real problem featurewise is the lack of storage space. i usually carry my marshall ms2 mini halfstack (clips to your pocket type thing) with me, and there is not enough room for it when all my cables and stuff is in it. so beware about storage. the cost was ok, but i think i should have gotten it cheaper. anyway, great case, get it.

This case did not fit my SG faded. One side of the case fit fine, the other side was WAY off!The one side cut out for the horns was shifted 1-1/2" towards the headstock! Not just the horn cutout but the entire contour of the body was shifted. I've never seen anything like this before. I would NEVER trust this case because of the fit.Too bad it didn't fit, it is a well built case....

Not a good fit for a Gibson SG standard

      Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

      The case is built tough but for a Gibson SG standard, the tuner is resting on the frame and the neck is not supported securely. The body snug fits on the horns and although it stays in place, it leans and is not the proper way to secure the SG. Get the Gibson SG specific hardcase to get the exact fit. This case will break the headstock if dropped.

        Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

        Loved the design of this case, it was lightweight, love the latches. My gibson SG is a 1972, the neck joint is huge, it sticks out far, unlike my 2008 SG standard, which has no protruding neck joint or heel. That one is flush with the body, so the modern SG fit, although not quite as well as it does in its stock gibson tkl case. The horn cutouts aren't matched, so it may be better for the esp viper or other makes. The headstock area was a bit tight too, one side had the tuning keys too close to the edge. I had to teturn it unfortunately. Wish it fit because I did like it.

          The only SG case for me!

          Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

          My guitars go all over the country with me. There's no way I trust them to a cheap
          case, especially an SG or LP. This SKB has proven itself in the past
          and is the very best fitting case for an SG I've found. You can pick anything
          apart and find some kind of flaw with it, but I don't see a real issue with this
          case anywhere. Great product, decent price. Get yourself one!

          I went to SKB's website and used their fitment chart to see which case would fit my Schecter S-1 custom. It listed this case as the correct fit. My S-1 doesn't fit. Not even close. I'm quite disappointed. Not with MF, but with SKB.

          These cases fit my Gibson sg melody maker and my Gibson nighthawk. I have Gibson cases and these were at an affordable price and I feel are much more protective than Gibson standard cases.

              Pretty darn good fit for my 1960s Tribute Gibson SG.Little to no play in the case.Built like a Mac Truck.I was worried about the fit as I am picky, and read some reviews.I am pleased.

              Second one that I buy

              Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

              This is my second SKB SG case, I really liked my first SKB case that I bought like 5 years ago with metal latches. The only reason why I rated it with a 4.5 is because I don't like the new plastic latches although the new model seems more sturdy. Keep the old metal latches, make the neck support actually to support the neck and make the cases in the US! I'm tired of junk made in china...

              Pretty Awesome Case

              By 

              from Bristol, CT

              Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

              So i got my case a little while ago, and i thought i'd post a review on it. It's a sturdy case, with pretty heavy duty latches. But they're huge and plastic, instead of being discreet and metal like in the picture, so i'm assuming SKB came out with a new design. i don't really like the way they look but oh well. my biggest concern, is that because SKB wants to make it fit all styles of SGs, it doesn't have a very snug fit to any of them. i believe it's better suited for Vipers because the left horn comes up much more than necessary. my Gibson SG fits nicely in there, but it's obviously not meant for Gibson style SGs specifically which is a shame. i'd prefer separate cases for separate shaped guitars. besides that, i have a feeling this will last quite a while, and put up with rigorous road travel. seems like a good deal, too bad they can't fit the horns better.
