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.

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

      Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar 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.

          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:

          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.

                  overpriced, but decent case.. latches are good, key fitment in the lock is a little iffy.. it is cool looking, fits my strat nicely, would I recommend? only if you buy it on sale.

                  A waste of time and money. Should have specified in the info if it isn't actually universal.
