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.

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

My thoughts based on other reviews read here and other sites are this.

First, the Universal shaped is always misleading in product descriptions. I had a Fender Strat and I read enough reviews to see that it would fit in the case, so I ordered one.

Even with that, I had a concern with my Dimarzio Clip Lok strap that my Fender Strat would not fit on properly, but it managed to fit really well without any working of the case itself. The backpack straps and the size were the real seller for me, and the bag fits comfortable and it is sturdy enough I feel really secure walking around with it on my back in a NYC street.

As for the horizontal foot stands, the bag on the sides is somewhat curved, which makes having the bag stand on its feet a challenge, if possible. I haven't had the good luck to have that work.

I am keeping an eye on the quality and the backpack straps, if those start to fall apart, i don't know if I can recommend this to a friend.

Right now, Overall, I am very happy. I have always been looking for the balance of protection and portability for my guitars, and this really does a nice job.

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.

        Comments about SKB Universal Shaped Electric Guitar Soft Case:

        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!

        Excellent Quality!

        By Matt D-_vvSE

        from Boston

        Comments about SKB Universal Shaped Electric Guitar Soft Case:

        This case is the best I've ever owned in the "gig bag" category, comparable only to my Incase bag which was much more expensive. A tailored fit makes it compact in size and the inner shell blends the protection of a hard case with the convenience and lower weight of a gig bag. The only thing that would make it better is if it was made in the USA. Thank you SKB for making a QUALITY product!

        NOT "universal"

        Comments about SKB Universal Shaped Electric Guitar Soft Case:

        Although listed as "universal" this case is basically Strat shaped. The 2 guitars I wanted to use it for (Les Paul Special and Epiphone Wilshire) did not fit. I suspect that Tele shapes would fit, might even be able to get an SG in there. For a Strat this would be a very nice soft case, I have the Firebird shaped model and love it.
        Strat shaped inside, not universal

                I purchased this case as I am about to go on an extensive European tour and didn't want to bring my #1 guitar - a Gibson ES-335 - with me. My travel guitar is a Fret King Country Squire Semitone De Luxe, which is kind of a suped-up Tele Thinline with an extra pickup. I purchased this case as I will have to check it in when I fly Norwegian Air (they don't allow guitars on board) but it seemed thin and streamlined enough to fit in the overhead for the other carriers. The guitar fit perfectly in the case. The case is incredibly lightweight yet sturdy. There is an area inside for strings and guitar strap but there is not enough room inside to put in any pedals and the outside zippered pouches are large enough for some cables and my guitar stand, though not wide enough for any sheet music. It's also comfortable enough with the two straps to function well as a gig bag. I'll see how the case fares in my two-month journey and respond again afterwards.

                    This is truly a hybrid of hard-shell case and nylon gig bag. Most gig bags are nothing more than thin nylon, a couple millimeters of soft foam and air. This beauty truly protects the guitar and the interior wraps around a Strat very snugly like a custom 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).

                          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.

                                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 is a really nice case, but it doesn't fit all solid body electrics. My Strat and Tele fit in it, but my SG and Les Paul do not.

                                  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.

                                      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
