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....

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...

          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.

All-in-all, this is the last case I'll ever have to buy for my SG. Best of all, the SKB hardshell cases carry a LIFETIME WARRANTY!!!

          Pretty Awesome Case

          By mKrQOcgWl

          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.

          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.

              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.

                          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.
