good case, strong and its light compared to taylor cases, fits my baritone alvarez guitar as well as my taylor jumbos, jumbo 12 string 355 and a jumbo 6 string 315, the one latch is kinda strange and kinda doesnt fall into place when locking it and you got to line it up to lock it, its only one that does that, no big deal, as the benefit of a light case to carry out that is strong enough to protect my guitars at a great price that fits all my jumbo bodies, and well, so one latch had a minor flaw that i probably can fix if i take the time to see why it isn't sliding into place like a burr to file down, still 5 star in my book

The only thing I can say is that Musician's Friend has let me down on the one, first they sent the wrong case to me, and I had to send it back before I would get the Gator case, they tried to charge me more, but I refused to pay it so M.F let that slide,When the gator case arrived it was to small for my EG523SC spalted Takamine, it fits but not properly, and I refuse gonna go through with the hassle of trying to get another case which I've already talked to M.F. about and again they want more money, what about customer satisfaction. Of course I do not expect this to be posted because I've told how I feel about Muscian's Friend after all the money I've spent through them.

GW-Gator Jumbo Case

Comments about Gator GW-Jumbo Acoustic Guitar Case:

Bought this for an Alvarez ABT60 Baritone Jumbo Acoustic. Great fit - snug around the body. Plenty of room for the headstock even with the extended length of the baritone neck. Very solid construction and finishing. Latches securely. Nicely padded handle too. Glad I got this instead of the Alvarez JC-1 baritone case that gets mixed reviews. I don't think anyone would be disappointed with this.

      Case for 1944 Epiphone Triumph

      A very good case to fit an old arch top acoustic. The fit is very good for an non-OHSC.

            Comments about Gator GW-Jumbo Acoustic Guitar Case:

            I ordered this case for my Alvarez ABT60 Baritone Guitar and it fits into the case like a glove. The case seems quite sturdy and travels well. My only issue is that when I close the case with the guitar in it, I have to push down a bit on the top to get the latches to line up and close. Not a big deal as once I get them lined up it latches just fine. This could be due to the size of the guitar as well. Regardless, you'll be happy with this case and save a little as well.

                Alex S. from Musicians Friend went out of his way to to find a case that would fit my 1952 Gibson ES! The reps at Gibson were no help to me!!! After returning 2 cases that were recommended, we reached out to Gator and they said the GW jumbo was a sure fit! A beautiful fit for my 65 yrs young guitar!!! Extremely happy with the Gator case!!! Very Very disappointed in Gibson!!!!!! Thanks Gator&Musicians Friend!! S.J

                    I bought this for Alvarez ABT60E Baritone because somebody wrote it was a good fit. Yes it fits, but it is pretty tight. So snug that the strap button catches at the bottom unless I'm careful to put the guitar in the case bottom first.
                    That's my only observation so far, have only had it about a week.

                                  Recently got a Takamine Jumbo acoustic-electric 12 string. The next task was to find something to carry it around in that wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg. After a lot of research and one wrong purchase, I finally found this case. It fits the Takamine like a glove and I like the quality and construction. It's got an interior compartment for accessories and the lining is nice and plush. So far so good. If it fits my guitar, it will fit anything.

                                  Bought this case after some research for my 2010 Epiphone Broadway with a Bigsby B-6 tailpiece and Schaller strap locks.
                                  3 reasons I picked this case. An extra 1/2 inch in the headstock length, arched top and 5 latches.
                                  The MF photo clearly shows 5 latches. The case I received only had 4. Not a deal breaker but Update your photos MF!
                                  The rest was fine. The guitar fits fine with the strap locks and Bigsby, with swivel arm. The added headstock room fits the strap great.
                                  For the cost the case seems better then the Epi version's I've had in the past. I'd spend the extra 10 on this one.

                                    Nice case.

                                    Everything about the one I received is fine. The hinges line up, and it doesn't feel flimsy to me.

                                    I bought this for a Godin 5th Avenue, which fits very well in the Gator Jumbo case. The TRIC Multifit case that Godin sells for its 5th Avenue series is ugly and smelly, and it has zippers instead of latches.

                                          Feels flimsy as compared to other brands. I will not buy again.

                                          This was a nice case. Unfortunately, it was the 3rd case they sent me. I spent a grand on a Gretsch G5191 Tim Armstrong guitar. It requires a 17" case, which did not come with the purchase. After a month and a half I have given up and have asked for a refund. While their staff was friendly, they were not very competent. Go elsewhere for your purchases is my advice!

                                          This low cost case was recommended by the Musicians Friend rep as one fitting a jumbo Takamine. And it does! Looks good, fits the guitar well, priced right.

                                              Got this to ship my guitar overseas through the US Mail, a risky proposition at the best of times. This is extremely sturdy, and fits my Jumbo Ibanez like a glove, great price as well, definitely recommend!
