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.

Not So Universal

      Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

      The product claims to be able to house a telecaster. That is simply not true. Deal breaker. Total false advertising. This will hold a strat, though not well. The storage compartments do not have lids. The whole thing is constructed out of very cheap flimsy plastic (worse than I thought), and I wouldn't trust the latches at all. My guess is I could destroy this case in less than six months with normal wear and tear. I bought it because I wanted a case to carry a Strat and a Tele. The product description says that it can, but that is not true.

        This is a generic case by MUSICIANS FRIEND but I tell you it's the same high quality case that came with my brand new Jackson RR Pro Rhoads guitar! Well worth the money I used it on a custom guitar I just made.

        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"

          Decent case but doesn't keep picks, whammy bar, allen wrenches in place. They are always scattered around everywhere in the case.

            Good general fits all case. It won't fit every guitar out there but will accommodate most. Nice and compact. Stackable feature is nice... but only fits the exact same case. Won't fit the Jackson, ESP or any of the other cases that SKB makes that look like this... bummer.

                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.

                I bought this because it was a deal and I am not sorry I did. Great TSA locks for air travel and solid construction. Doesn't really fight all guitars so use caution when buying. Its not a tight fit so you might need to add additional packing so the guitar does not slide around. Tele and Strats fit well.

                    I needed one for my new Ibanez RG series guitar (long headstock). Fits very well, and would also fit a 7-string Ibanez. TSA latches? At this low price? Might be buying a 2nd soon.
