I've been a fan of SKB for years now, but this design on this case is absolutely horrible. I bought one of these for my Tele and I've only took it out on I'd say between ten and twenty gigs. I have a huge crack under one of the latches. I think those Godzilla size latches are to blame. The latches are way to big for any case. They stick out and get caught on just about eveything they come in contact with. You can't put any kind of weight on them, (as in loading your equipment into what ever vehicle you're using). I take the utmost care of my equipment and realize that things happen on the road. but according to SKB's website they do not cover normal wear and tear. Well to me this case isn't worthy of even carrying your guitar in just around town. I'm not knocking SKB, but they need to dump this design. I considered buying one of these for my 335, but after what happened to my Tele case I'll go with Gator next time. I hope the guys at SKB read this. You've got excellent products but this one is gonna come back to bite you in the rump.

JUNK!!!

By Anthony

from Savannah, GA

Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

I have been an SKB fan for years. First off, I will start with the good. The case holds the guitar very well. The other thing that is great about these cases is that they are stackable. Now for the bad. Customer service sucks. The latches are too big and don't do the case any justice and finally, I have three of these cases and on every one the handle has either broke or the plastic around the handle has crack or split. The kicker is these cases haven't seen the road once. Come on man!!! You can't have all plastic hardware and expect it to last. I know this has been and on-going problem with these cases and SKB needs to reavaluate this design. Something to be aware of...

Not worth it

By Joshua_D

Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

The quality just isn't there for this model in my opinion. I've had issues with this case since I bought it in 2007, and I'll soon be replacing the case for something a bit more sturdy and wll-built. Maybe other SKB models are better, but this one wasn't worth the investment.

A hardshell case with fancy latches

By Megaman17

from TX

See all my reviews

Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

This is another ordinary SKB case with new fancy latches. SKB cases are "universal", and not really for all kinds of guitars. As seen in the picture on the page, it's pretty much molded for strats... or something eaqually skinny. 7-string guitars wouldn't fit in SKB's and I doubt baritone guitars would either. However, SKB's have a constant good quality and this one is not an exception. It doesn't seem to be any stronger than the regular hardshell case but has a good looking double action latches with TSA lock. Now you can lock your guitar case upon checking out at the airport. (I do not know if it is meant to be a "flight case".) But is that feature worth $30 more than the regular one? ...you decide.

Not Universal!

Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

I ordered this case for an ESP Les Paul style. When it arrived, it was molded for a Strat style. It seems like it is a very nice case, just a poor description of it as "universal"

Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

This is a nice case. Good construction etc. But I tried to point out to the folks at SKB about a defect in engineering of their products but they just basically blew me off. I guess they'd just rather sit in front of their computers and play games. Basically, the stackable feature in these cases don't quite stack up. I tried to point that out about a Jackson case which is the same design and made by them doesn't match up. Pretty bad when you try to go out of your way to point out a design flaw and get blown off. In reality doing them a favor... but I guess it's more comfortable in La La land.

Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

Great Case....holds all my expensive stuff.
I can keep everything pre-connected.
Looks pro.
Travels well.
Nothing is going to damage the gear inside
About the size of a guitar case but wider.
Working perfect for me....
Only downside is the empty case is a little heavy so once you load it up its pretty beefy.

    Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

    It was a gift. The person who received it couldn't have been happier. It was out of stock when I ordered, but the person receiving the gift was willing to wait even if his gift was late for Christmas. It came in on the 23rd of December....saw him the next day. He opened it and ran with it around the room he was so excited.
