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.

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.

          Best thing about this particular case, it does not smell! High quality construction plus smaller than typical Fender tele/strat cases. This case is a winner.

            Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

            I'm a 61 year young guitar player who started playing when I was 12, and have seen, owned and used a wide selection of guitar cases. These are the best I have owned. I now have two of these excellent cases. I bought the first for my old Corona built '66 Stratocaster, liked it so well that I bought another for my MIM Telecaster. I'm going to buy two more of these cases for my other Fender guitars. The cases are extremely durable, and I am confident that my guitar is going to be ready to play where ever I'm going, even if I'm just going to a barbecue at my next door neighbors house. I have learned the hard way that my guitars stand as much a chance of getting damaged in my house as they do on an airplane flight. When my guitars are not in my hands, they are safely resting in their cases. Since I mentioned air flight, the simple ability for the TSA people can open my locked guitar case without causing damage, or causing me more hassle at the terminal, is a real selling point. I have flown several times with these cases, and thanks to the supreme durability of the case, and the TSA friendly lock, I don't have to fear my guitar being damaged or destroyed when they go on as checked luggage. These cases are small, with limited space to carry accessories, and that is good as they take up less room in the trunk of a small car. I follow Bob Taylor's advice on traveling with instruments; I put nothing in the case with my guitar but a small polishing cloth. I put the strap, tuner, strings, snuff can full of picks and anything else I want along in my carry on bag or other checked luggage.

              Nice and easily portable. Others mention the limited storage space, but when the main focus is protecting the instrument..... that's what matters. My new baja Tele came with a cheap gig bag, which had to go.

                      The clasps are a two part clasp with a spring. Thought they would be more like a Pelican case where when they clasp, they clasp shut. will only have to wait to see how long they last. Otherwise it looks like it will protect my custom Tele pretty well.

                        Good case, well worth the money. My G&L Tele fits nicely. It's a compact case, so the inside storage is limited, but adequate for picks, extra strings, and a tuner. My strap is somewhat thick, so rather than forcing it into the compartment, it fits nicely folded up under the headstock.

                          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.

                            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.
