      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.

      A bit too snug

            Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

            The case was recommended using case finder for my G&L Tribute Comanche, however it only barely fits. In fact, I had to take off the tremolo bar, yet the case still does not close 100%. The case is sturdy and light, but not great for this instrument. I would recommend purchasing a case designed exactly for the dimensions of your own guitar.
            In my opinion, "universal" does not best describe this 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.

              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.

                  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.

                  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.

                  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...

                  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.

                  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.
