I think there should be another fastener added to this guitar case at the inside of the V, on the handle side. My Gibson Flying V fits OK but there is space at the V, about an inch and a half. And a space at the end of head stock about an inch. Since there is not a Flying V Guitar Case from Gibson (that I could find) this was the best protective case that I could find. Apparently the SKB case was designed to accommodate several different V type guitars. I'm hoping that as the case "settles-in" the seal will close completely at the afore mentioned part of the case. This Guitar Case could be better than it is.

I looked into buying one of these for my Gibson Flying V faded cherry since I bought it used with a gig bag. The case itself is very sturdy and would be the choice for me except that my Flying V is too loose inside the case. There is enough wiggle room for the headstock to touch the end of the case which makes it a deal breaker for me. Flying V's are known for their fragile headstocks so if someone were to mishandle it or if the case took a hard knock the wrong way in transit then the headstock will come in contact with the case. It's too bad really since I think SKB makes an excellent case. If there was some extra padding supplied that could be put in the body area of the case to snug it up a little then this might work for me. Until then I guess I will keep looking.

      Comments about SKB V-Type Hardshell Guitar Case:

      I bought this product because I read it would be the best case for my Jackson RRXMG (24 fret). The case is very nice and super sturdy. I really like the way the latches are designed because I feel they're a bit harder to open than traditional locking fasteners. All that being said the guitar fits, but the headstock does hover a bit and the neck gets pushed when you close the case completely. Also the interior compartment is a bit small so don't expect put any type of musical book in there. Overall I'm pleased because my guitar is still protected.

            I never take any of my guitars out to play without a case; I could not find a single one of my old cases that fit the BC Rich King V Jr. Great case; fits well.

            Comments about SKB V-Type Hardshell Guitar Case:

            My Gibson Flying V is not snug in this thing at all and the guitar rests on the neck under the nut and the tip of its "wings", creating stress on the neck. Also, the handle is not placed well and the case feels unbalanced when carried with the neck half wanting to touch the ground. This case also is huge. I like my other SKB cases for my SG and Les Payl a whole lot better.

                      100% RECOMMEND THIS SKB V CASE FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT OWN V's. ALL OTHER CASES ARE A WASTE OF TIME MONEY. THIS SKB V CASE WILL LAST AT LEAST 300YRS.

                      NEGATIVE:IT WILL NOT FIT MY ESP GALDER SHADOW, DUE TO TOP HORN BEING TO LONG FOR CASE. NEGATIVE: ALSO MANY SKB CASES IN AUSTRALIA ARE WAY TO EXPENSIVE.
