I needed a case for my Epiphone Masterbilt EF-500RCCE but I wasn't sure if this was the right case. After reading the reviews and looked it up on the EPI website, I ordered it right away. I am very pleased with it. The case is durable and holds my instrument solidly with no slop. It is very well made, has 4 secure clasps (one that locks), metal feet to sit on its bottom side, sit on edge, or stand vertically and horizontally. It has a roomy covered compartment for capos, strings, winder, etc. The case has a nice soft plush liner and of course the logo on the case. If your the owner of an Epiphone Masterbilt EF-500RCCE, you should definitely get one to protect your instrument. This one fits like a glove. The body fits so perfectly there is no room for movement and that's how I want my hard shell case!!! I couldn't be happier! Musician's Friend, thank you again for the fast shipping! Here are some pictures and a short video.

Comments about Epiphone EL-00 Hardshell Case:

I bought this case because, I like the way it looked. Very classy cool vintage look, nifty Brown accent color, I like the gold hardware and Comfy handle. All that being said this was the wrong case for my guitar, the Masterbilt AJ-45ME. The case was made for the EL-00, not my Masterbilt AJ-45ME however with very little effort this case provided a very snug and secure fit, couldn't be happier truly delighted. The real bonus is this guitar case was purchased as an open box and at a nice discount. Big thanks to musicians friend.

    Comments about Epiphone EL-00 Hardshell Case:

    I'm getting the Epiphone EL-OO for xmas this year and I wanted a good hard case for it. I don't like gig bags because the just keep a guitar from being scuffed up, no protection from being broke. I really like this case . Plush lined will keep scuffs down. I also heard that is about the only case this guitar will fit. I believe its a great deal and its well worth the money.

        This was for a gift for our granddaughter's 13 Birthday we had ordered the Guitar for her and needed a case that would fit it .. this case was recommended to us by musicians friends rep and we could've been more pleased case was beautiful inside and out and fit the Guitar perfectly. We did a lot of ordering for this special BD and we were not at all disappointed with the recommended products the delivery times and the quality of all the items.. I would not only recommend them but we will be using them again and again! Thanks Musicians friend , Eileen Westcott

                  the lid is warped or fitted wrong. when closed and buckled, with the guitar in it or not, there is a 1/4 inch gap between the lid and case on the body end of case.

                          I use it to store my epiphone EL-00 acoustic-electric guitar at home. Light enough to bring on gigs (since I'm driving, not walking). Others have said the fit is either too large or too tight; I find it is the perfect size and padded very very nicely. I love the quality and the very classy look of this hardshell case.

                                        I wasn't sure which case to get for my EPI EF500-RCCE but the EPI website said this was the one. It's designed for the smaller OO guitars in their lineup but also fits the EF500 perfectly, if not snuggly. I'm impressed with the heft (it's a heavy piece of equipment...don't expect your 7 year old to haul it around) of this case, the apparent quality of the fit and finish and the overall appearance, which is enhanced by a brown strip of Tolex that sets it apart from other cases. I don't have any experience with this case yet for travel and I don't play gigs so time will tell about its ruggedness, but I expect it to last a long time. This is a very nice product for the price.

                                          this case is very little heavier than an SKB style case, and looks a billion times better. The case looks expensive. it looks like something you'd want to keep something valuable in. It's like the difference between vinyl seat covers and leather seat covers in a car.
