This is a well made case for storing your guitars, and plenty good enough for gigs and lessons too. I have two of this same case. I have a Fender Strat in one and a Danelectro 12 string in the other. The Strat fits wonderfully, like it was made just for it. The Danelectro fits, but is very tight on the lower bout. You have to carefully press the lower bout into the case. It actually bulges the case out just enough to make it necessary to push the case side in a little to latch it. Not really a big deal at all. I suppose you could remove some of the padding in that area, but I don't want to risk making a mess of it. I figure it will just wear in after a while and loosen up. Most of my other cases are TKL and these Gators are pretty much on par with them.

Not so good. One latch was dangling with the screws stripped. I managed to repair it. The whole case seems cheesy and not very secure at all. Needs better latches. The case also has alignment issues and needs care when closing. Thin padding and cheap fuzzy fabric lining. Does not seem durable. Quality control poor. I would use this case only around the house or cautiously for travel. It does not inspire confidence when hauling it around because the latches are so cheap and flimsy.

Fits my Fender Mustang perfectly!

Comments about Gator GW-Electric-TW-GC Guitar Case:

This is a good, solid case for home or local touring use. You wouldn't want to fly with it, but it's nice and solid for logging your guitar around in a van. I bought this for my Telecaster, but it fits my Mustang too.

    Comments about Gator GW-Electric-TW-GC Guitar Case:

    I searched a while for a case that would host my Fender Strat and finally pulled the trigger on this one based on other reviews, availability, and price. I was happy to find, after inspecting on arrival, it indeed was a well built case, decent latches and hinges, and great fit for my guitar. Many generic cases allow guitars to flop around inside the case, but a Strat will not. I dig the tweed, too. It stands out among the many black cases in my studio. For the price, it's a great medium duty case.

        A good overall case for the money. A good value with decent structural integrity. I knocked a star off because one of the cases (I ordered two) has some sloppy stitching and poorly folded corners. Gator needs to have better quality control measures put in place. As content as I am with the cases I'm thrilled with the exceptional Customer Service I received from MF. They couldn't have been better.

                Comments about Gator GW-Electric-TW-GC Guitar Case:

                I had been looking for a case to fit a new Tele, but most of the cases I saw were not much more than cardboard and very inexpensive, or they were built to sustain a Cat 5 hurricane outdoors - and were $$$. This case seemed to the Goldilocks - right in the middle. The Tele and a Strat fit perfectly!

                Shipping was fast and the box was adequate. The case arrived in very good condition with no flaws save for a couple of small smudges (maybe glue) on one end. They were hardly noticeable and will soon blend with others that will accumulate form normal use.

                The latches seem to be fine for local use. (I would not ship on a plane without additional packaging.) The handle is placed so as to provide good balance with a guitar inside.

                The exterior fabric is very nice; however, the leather-look bindings are little sketchy, but still adequate. The interior is plush and well padded with a large accessory compartment that closes. The neck cradle holds the guitar snugly.

                All in all, nice case at a great price!

                    I have a custom made Tele.. It is about 3/4 of an inch longer then Fender and does not fit in a Fender Tele case correctly. It fits in this case perfectly. A nice snug fit. No movement or sliding around..

                                latches misaligned- bubbles or waves in the covering-does not hold guitar secure without putting an additional pad between fingerboard and case lid. at first glance it is an attractive case, but qc is distinctly absent and not the quality i have gotten from gator cases in the past.

                                I had read the previous reviews and decided to go with the Gator tweed case for my Stratocaster. I was really impressed with the case when it arrived. It will certainly provide the guitar with the protection needed for my use. I could have paid more but I doubt I would have gotten more value. It looks great and fits my guitar like a glove.

                                      Discounted and an excellent buy. Very rugged and stands up to usual musician abuse/use. This is as good as the Fender brand at a much lower cost. Do not hesitate to buy this one. I own several of these!

                                        Not so good. One latch was dangling with the screws stripped. I managed to repair it. The whole case seems cheesy and not very secure at all. Needs better latches. The case also has alignment issues and needs care when closing. Thin padding and cheap fuzzy fabric lining. Does not seem durable. Quality control poor. I would use this case only around the house or cautiously for travel. It does not inspire confidence when hauling it around because the latches are so cheap and flimsy.

                                        I've been needing a hard shell case for my telecaster and when this was the day's deal I jumped on it. It feels substantial, nice looks but I'm a little concerned about the inner compartment lid. It feels a little flimsy, so when/if it falls apart, I've got a plan B for fixing it.... duct tape.

                                            I decided to order this guitar case instead of the Fender case based upon the overall positive reviews. I am not disappointed! It is a well made case that fits my Strat perfectly.
