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.

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.

    This case does it all! It is beautiful and sturdy. It has room inside for a tuner, strap and picks. And it was on sale!

      Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

      I bought one of these for my Hellraiser 7-string and it fits perfectly. This case has traveled quite a few miles in the air and had no issues with baggage handlers at hotels or airports. Other than the airline agents asking if it is a gun case I have had no issues at all.

      Not worth it

      By Joshua_D

      from Western NC

      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.

      JUNK!!!

      By MetalMan-98khv

      from Florida

      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...

      Fine case, excellent value

      By axman53

      from South Florida

      Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

      OK, so it's not the best case in the world, but you can't beat the value. I got one of these for my Carvin DC-135 because the form fitting case I got with the guitar would barely close with a strap on the guitar. This case works great and is a steal for the money. Yeah, it would be nice if there was a covered compartment inside, but for the money I'm happy with it.

      Good for the price

      By Kevin -_478r

      from Los Angeles, CA

      Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

      I just received my SKB 66. From the outside the case looks to be up to the task of medium road work but I wouldn?t use it for heavy travel. The interior is good and my guitar (Shecter Hellraiser FR) fits snugly in place. There were some quality issues that I had to fix though. The first thing that needed attention was the strap that keeps the lid from falling open. On mine the length of the strap was too short and the lid had a tendency slamming shut so I had to lengthen it. Also the glue that is used to keep the foam in place was useless and didn?t stick. I had to scrape all the old glue off and I used 100% silicon calk to hold the foam in place. The keys for the lock were also missing and I had to call SKB to obtain a pair. Overall I would say that this case was a good buy and even though there were some quality issues they were easily fixable.

      Good case, but really stinks

      By fred Weinstein

      from Paso Robles, Ca

      Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

      This case is a good value for the money. If you go to their website, they list what guitars fit which cases so its a no brainer. No guessing. My only complaint is the smell. You have to leave this case opened for about 2 weeks to let the odor escape. Im guessing it is either from the carpet or the glue used. Other than that, it does what it is supposed to and does it well. I use it for a Strat and a Schecter C-1 Classic, both fit well and dont move around.

      Go SKB!

      By STCaxeman

      from West Chester, PA

      Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

      Just to start off, I now have about $2000 worth of gear protected by SKB - my guitar, amp, and pedalboard - and I'll never look back. This was my most recent purchase, and before ordering I called SKB to ask a few questions. I asked if my lifetime warranty would be void if I painted my case. The rep said no, and suggested a brand of spray paint for me to use! I was amazed.Anyway, the case is awesome, but SKB is even more awesome - Fits my tele like a glove. If you want a case that'll literally last for a lifetime, this is the one for you.

      Ideal for Airports

      By Billy The Kid-srO3T

      from East coast

      Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

      It is relatively light, withstood the rigors of airport handling on an east to west coast round trip, and comes with a TSA approved lock. Bought a second one after this initial test.
