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!

I really like this soft case. The Good: The hard foam shell gives a nice level on protection that many soft cases don't have. It's lightweight with good carry option and plenty of pockets that are the right size. Some have complained about the fit, but it's worked fine for everything I've tried in it.
The Bad: construction. After just a couple months the side seams near the backpack straps are ripping out. I tend to be pretty careful with gear, so this hasn't been abused. If I baby it, it may last a while longer.
I had a second case on order, but it got back ordered. I've canceled it and won't be buying another one. I'd gladly recommend it if it was sturdy enough.

      Comments about SKB Universal Shaped Electric Guitar Soft Case:

      I was looking for a gig bag that would protect my guitars and that would not be overly expensive, this case does just that. It's light weight, super protective, numerous pockets for storage and excellent build quality, plus it not only fits my Tele's, Strat's but also my PRS S2 Standard. I'm very happy with my purchase and will probably get the version for Les Paul's in the future.

        The case is built very well. The accessory pouches are very shallow and are practically useless. The handle is uncomfortable and feels very cheap. We returned the case for exchange.

        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).

          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.

              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.
