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....

Does NOT fit Gibson SG Standard

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

As other reviewers have stated, this does NOT fit an SG standard. One side is way off, the neck isn't properly supported, and the tuning pegs rub against one side of the top of the case.

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

    I recently got this in preparation for a new Gibson SG I was buying. Unfortunately the return policy ran up before I got the SG. This case is meant to hold SG's as well as knock offs such as the ESP Viper. The problem is, that universal fit causes the guitar to sit diagonally in the case and puts pressure on the high strings tuning pegs. It's not confidence inspiring for sure because it doesn't actually lay with the neck on the brace. On top of that, there's so little space in the case itself that I can't even fit the strap into the accessory pocket under the neck. I have to carry it in a backpack which caused me to forget it at the first gig I did using the guitar, as I'm not used to putting the strap in my backpack. The case seems decently constructed and if those two glaring issues get fixed I'd recommend this case. Until then, unless you have a Viper just say no.

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

      I bought this to go with my Epiphone G-400 Limited Edition 1966 model. Unfortunately it does not fit. Could be due to the dove head stock that is longer then the normal Epiphone head stock. Was about 3/4" too short unfortunatley. Case was excellent build quality, just not quite enough room to fit my model.

          Great protection and very light weight. Be little mindful of clamps while using, can fall back in your way while using.

              My SG standard 2016 fits in it nice and snug. Neck is well supported and the tuning keys are clear of the sides. Some say theirs didn't. They all must be made by different people.

                  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.

                      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!
