Purchased a 1982 The Strat - guitar in great shape, case is trashed. This is more compact, easier to carry & I feel it protects the guitar very well. It's a tight fit, but that's not a bad thing. I have a early 1990's Strat with a very similar fender case, they're basically the same size. The latches on the SKB case are better than the stock fender latches, they latch very secure. I will mostlikely use this guitar more as its easier to grab & go. I have numerous strats & sometimes it just boils down to grab & go! Less worry of damaging the case. They are very resilient. Very reasonably priced, also & with my rewards points - it was very reasonable.
Good luck, I don't think your going to find a better case in this price range!

skb-fs6 case quality, fit and noise

Basically a disappointment for the above reasons.
It is a small case so don't expect a lot of room. There is enough room inside for strap, tuner and strings.

Basically a disappointment for the above reasons.
It is a small case so don't expect a lot of room. There is enough room inside for strap, tuner and strings.
There is a popping noise at the rear, center hinge when closing the case. I believe that the extruded aluminum perimeter is out of alignment (case is brand new, never opened from China) and or the hinge is mounted slightly off... Very tight fit with Squire classic vibe strat; also, doesn't quite seem right; won't seat all the way down into the case.
Overpriced.

Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

Best case you will ever own for a Tele virtually Indestructible and plenty of room left for a cord and my Leather Strap. Better than the Case that the American Comes With, Lighter, just as durable and MUCH more convienent. Best Case I have ever owned for any Fender.

    Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

    This appears to be the exact same case Fender sells. Purchased for my #1 Strat, this is a great case. Anyone that gigs regularly will tell you how important a good case is. This fits the bill and unlike other cases, isn't a huge space wasting rectangle. It's big enough to protect the guitar and not much larger but still has space for whammy bar, tools, strap, cable, etc.

      Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

      This is my 3rd SKB case (the other two are bass cases). I like SKB cases since they are well built and protect the guitar well. I brought this for my Stratocaster but it's almost impossible to fit the Strat in the case with the strap attached. I didn't want to keep removing the strap everytime I stored the guitar. It's a great fit for a Telecaster so I'm using it for my Telecaster instead.

        I purchased a used tele with a cheap case and wanted one close to one that comes from Fender. Except for the Fender logo this one fits the bill.

          Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

          I mentioned "Limited Space". This is not a problem if you have a cloth strap that can be folded flat. One of those big padded leather ones probably won't fit. The clasps are really cool. Push to close. They click into place and open like any regular case. My Tele fits perfectly. I got this case because my other molded case lets the tuners touch the bottom. This one keeps the tuners clear of the case itself. The handle is comfortable and the case is well balanced.
          You won't regret this purchase.

          Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

          I have this exact case but with FENDER on it. It has to be the best case in the world. One night i forgot my guitar in the back of my truck and when i woke up in the morning it was raining!! I ran outside and pulled my case out of a lake in the back of my truck. when i got inside and opened the case to inspect the damage, to my amazment the plush linning wasn't even moist, dry as tuscon!! i was so happy. I'm not saying that this case is waterproof, but it worked for me. It can withstand anything, back of trucks, under the bus, in the trailer, great case. I recommend it to everyone.

              Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

              I bought this to replace another, much older, SKB case for my Strat that I had for many years and which got spoiled in a flood (luckily without the Strat inside). This case is smaller, not rectangular like my previous one, and has different locks and closures (plastic not metal like the old one) but otherwise seems to be of the same quality. I haven't carried it to gigs for years (yet) but so far it seems great and a suitable replacement. Price is right, too.

                My Telecaster Thinline came with a gig bag so I had to find a hard shell case that was both affordable and excellent quality. This guitar case fits my Tele great. It appears to be of excellent workmanship and it was less really affordable. I definitely recommend this guitar case.

                Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

                The only reason I would score it a 10 is because I need to remove the guitar strap so that everything fits in well. Not a big deal though.
                Nice latches, lock, handle. Storage compartment inside too. This case was purchased for my Hell Guitar Zero Dot model--Strat style guitar.
                The guitar fits nicely and is held securely.
                Rugged and well made. Excellent product.
                Hard/impossible to find something this good at this price in a quality guitar case. I would definitely buy another SKB product.
