OVERVIEW

Durable 600-denier exterior with a rigid-foam interior designed to fit traditionally shaped electrics.

The SKB 1SKB-SCFS6 fits universal shaped electric guitars and offers the superior protection of the very same rigid foam inserts found in SKB's hardshell guitar case line, but with the style and portability of a softshell gigbag or backpack case.

All SKB soft guitar cases feature a rugged, weather-resistant, 600-denier ballistic nylon exterior with a hard-core EPS foam interior to provide more substantial protection than a conventional gigbag.

The SKB 1SKB-SCF56's exterior features two zippered pouches, one with numerous internal compartments for organized accessory storage, and an adjustable padded backpack strap for easy transport. The hard foam interiors are plush-lined and offer full-neck support to cradle the guitar neck more securely than a conventional bag. The SKB Universal Shaped electric guitar case also has 3 rubber feet for standing your bagged instrument on it's side without worrying about it tipping over.

FEATURES
  • Designed for universal-shaped guitars
  • Heavy-duty double pull zipper
  • Molded EPS interior with plush lining
  • Durable 600-denier exterior layered with rigid foam
  • 2 convenient exterior accessory pouches
  • Carrying handle and padded backpack straps

Give your electric guitar above-regular gig bag protection. Order the 1SKB-SC63 today!

My second purchase and review of this high quality gig bag. Made for strats and teles. I've not seen a better value in a gig bag! Combines the compactness and over the shoulder convenience of a gig bag (frees both hands up) with the superior protection of a hardshell case. Plenty of useful outer pockets and a lid for the interior storage area so stuff doesn't move around.

SKB has made an important refinement: on my first gig bag the screws that fasten the outer layer were too narrow and a few eventually came loose. They've put new type screws on and they appear more sturdy and less likely to loosen.

I use this gig bag about every day for teaching and gigging. I'm not gentle with my stuff-tossing gear around to get where I'm going. Puts up with my abuse and keeps my guitars safe!

This case is advertised as a universal guitar case. However, I wonder which universe the guitars come from that fit this case. I own a 1966 Gibson Melody Maker, a 1980's model Kramer Focus 3000 and a BC Rich Mockingbird.

While I've read others here say Fender Strats fit the case, the Kramer Focus 3000 I own has a strat type body and the case isn't designed to fit the body. I didn't really think it would work with the Mockingbird. But,it really disappointed me when the only way I could get the Melody Maker to fit into the case, was to squeeze it in. This particular Melody Maker is a double cut model, similar to an SG.
This case has nice pockets.
It appears to be well constructed.
If you can find a guitar that fits this "universal" case, it might be a good value.

Comments about SKB Universal Shaped Electric Guitar Soft Case:

Great cases for gigging. Now I don't have to carry my extensive G&L, Fender and other hard cases to gigs and have them beat up. I use this poly foam case for gigging. It is light weight, easy to carry and transport and protects your valuable instruments when gigging locally ( not using as a flight case on airlines).

    Comments about SKB Universal Shaped Electric Guitar Soft Case:

    Very sturdy, light and plush inside. Fits my strat-clone perfectly.
    Integrated shoulder staps are great. I took off 1 star because it doesn't stand on edge even though it has hard rubber feet.

        Comments about SKB Universal Shaped Electric Guitar Soft Case:

        Will only fit strat/tele's from what I can see, and those without straps with straplocks on. No biggie. Case is well made or appears to be. Not really a "gig bag/soft case" in my opinion as it does have hard sides. This can be good or bad.

            Great case! Takes up much less room than my stock Fender hardcase in the already overstuffed van. Nice & tight fit for my Tele. Thing is, it's so tight I have to remove my strap & strap locks to get the zipper closed. I guess that's a small price to pay for all the advantages

              I was pretty skeptical about a non-hardshell case. I was expecting the usual "floppy" travel case. I REALLY like this one. Rigid and well formed. I would have liked the option to remove the backpack straps so there is less dangling. Minor though. Good case.

                This case combines the best of both worlds (ie, the no-longer-available SKB-type hard, molded cases for a Strat/Tele and the lighter weight but well-padded gig bag. It has an inside compartment for strings and stuff, just as it's molded, hard-case cousin, but additional pockets to stuff a strap or cable or other itens. There are straps to back-pack carry it. I love this thing and it fits my Strat perfectly.

                  The hard shell within the gig bag offers excellent protection for my workhorse strat. Most gig bags (even quite expensive ones) don't provide adequete protection for the bottom of the guitar-if you set it down that way. This one absolutey does. Several well placed pockets for accessories too. An excellent value-well done SKB!

                  Great case for the cash

                  from Undisclosed

                  Comments about SKB Universal Shaped Electric Guitar Soft Case:

                  I tried several gig bags from the slightly lower price range that were all junk. Gibson, Fender, and Roadrunner all left me feeling ripped off. Guitars fitting sloppy, poor construction, uncomfortable to use etc. seemed to be the norm. I wanted a case / bag that would protect my guitar and that I could also carry with a shoulder strap so I could carry my 2nd guitar and still manage keys & doors etc. This case rocks! I feel my 56 r strat is better protected in this case than the one it came with. The case fits the guitar like a glove. It's very comfortable to throw over your shoulder. It has great pockets and compartments. I wish I would have bought this one to begin with. I highly recommend it.
                  So far so good. Seems very durable. The only issue I forsee is if the zipper fails. Don't get me wrong it's a massive heavy duty zipper, but it's the only method of closing the case at all. If it were to bind up or derail the case would be useless unless you were able to replace it. I'm very careful when using them so I'm not worried. Just a word to the wise. Only reason I didn't give it a 10
