Better than nothing but not by much

Comments about Gator GW-Dread Deluxe Laminated Wood Archtop Dreadnought Guitar Case:

I purchased one of these for a Yamaha 12-string, but only because it was the only hardshell case they had in stock the guitar would fit into.The construction of the case is shabby--using "luan" which, while sounding exotic, is known to woodworkers to be a cheap grade of plywood noted for falling apart easily.Presumably, Gator is using luan because it is lightweight and they can claim to have a plywood hardshell case which is as light in weight as a thermoplastic or a hybrid case.Secondly, the case only has 1 storage compartment and it will barely hold a spare set of strings, let alone capo, spare picks, tuner, strap, and cable and any other accessories.I would recommend that if you are going to spend this much money on a case, that you consider a hybrid such as the wolfpak. They have more storage capacity, are as light in weight, just as durable, and have shoulder straps for carrying.

      Comments about Gator GW-Dread Deluxe Laminated Wood Archtop Dreadnought Guitar Case:

      I bought this case for my Gretsch G5420T (single cutaway) hollow body. It is a tight fit and I must put the guitar in the case by making sure the strap nut on the Bigsby end goes in at an angle first. The lid also needs to be finessed a little to close tightly. The plush padding is very nice and the case is high quality. However, I own several Road Runner cases which I prefer and for essentially the same price I will stick with Road Runner in the future.

            This is a perfect fit for my Taylor 150e acoustic/electric 12 string. The guitar came with a gig bag and I felt that wasn't enough protection for it.
