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.

              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.

                I had the unfortunate experience of buying a Fender hard case for my Telecaster, and well, it is an import of inferior quality to the SKB case Fender used to put their name on. This is still around, and costs ten dollars more than the fender model, but is 100% better.

                One of the reasons why I have such a high regard for this case is that I used this case as a flight case! I bought it from the store where the guy told me tbat this could be used as a flight case...but later I saw that SKB had not labled this as a flight case...my guitar is fine and reached home safely after a 20 hr flight...But now that I know it is not suppose to be a flight case I may not get it for my other guitars...but that said, if it can handle a rough flight journey it has to be GOOOD....

                              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 not what I thought, will they last?

                                    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.
