This case is great quality, although the latches didn't seem as sturdy as some other cases that I own in the same price range. Guitar fits great, although the trem arm can't be left up without the case putting pressure on it. When the arm is spun around fully, the case closes fine and the guitar stays still.

I got this case for my new Gretsch 5422TDC. It fits okay; a little snug, but the quality is sub par. The first one they shipped me had dried glue all over the inside. The glue is used to attach the fake fur to the inside of the case. A portion of the fur had also pulled away from the case and exposed the foam underneath. I sent it back to Musiciansfriend and they sent me another one. Though the second one didn't have the foam pulled away, it was also very poor quality. For the price I paid for a case I expected more from Gretsch. I have cases from the 70s and 80s for Gibson, Fender and Ovation and the quality is exponentially better than this one. Very, very disappointed in Gretsch.

      Pros

      • Fits the 5420 like a glove.
      • Functional
      • Good design overall for fair weather transport

      Cons

      • Fit/finish not at price point standard
      • handle is forward on case. Poor carry balance.
      • Poor seam joining on exterior black covering

      Best Uses

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6241 Deluxe Black Case:

        The case has such potential. Good ingredients that look rushed in assembly/production. Over cut edges on black exterior wrap catch on stuff and pull away from case. Super glued them first thing. Buckles are of medium grade and are not precise so they need finagling to seat them for closure, especially the locking one. Interior is glued in, but it just looks rushed. Some glue dried on the fur and some curve seams are pulled away slightly. The handle is forward on the case. Only good for short carrying, I use trains and buses to get around and this case has poor ergonomics for that. This case is also not good for rain or snow exposure during transit, it is a overlap lip seal design, not a tounge and groove tight seal design. The anchor point for the front handle pivot is also loose on mine.

            Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6241 Deluxe Black Case:

            Probably will be a good case. Not sure when this might have been manufactured, but the finish on the latches are already discolored. That's not a big deal, as they would eventually do that anyway(they are not solid bronze, after all). I think the case was recently manufactured as the inside stunk of glue. So I am airing it out for a while. It's early in its life, but I would recommend this case to a friend (but not Paul McCartney).

            Very nice case. But could be just a smidgen better quality for the price. I'd buy it again knowing, but still makes you wonder what happened to quality craftsmanship and pride. Again, for a Gretsch it's worth it. But no bang for your buck

                        I bought this to hold a new Streamliner 2420T, and I am very happy to report that it fits absolutely perfectly. The plush interior is nice and thick. Latches are sturdy and operate smoothly. Most importantly, though, it seems to do a good job isolating the guitar from temperature and humidity changes. I've noticed better tuning stability since it's been staying in the case most of the time.

Interior had pleasant smell unlike some cases I've gotten in the past that smell like a paint factory until you air them out. Has 5 latches that are tight and keep it tightly closed. Has a nice sized accessory compartment inside for picks, strings, cables, straps. Comes with the key for the lock. Very nice for the price.

                                    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6241 Deluxe Black Case:

                                    I did a lot of research for a guitar case that would fit and protect my Gretsch G5422TG. All the 335 style cases were not deep enough to handle the Bigsby 60 tremolo found on the G5422. The 335 cases fit the body well but I really disliked the pressure being applied to the guitar body by the top of the case pressing down on the Bigsby tremolo. The G6241 case, with the arched top, allows for just enough clearance to hold the guitar securely without engaging the Bigsby. It costs a little more that G2341FT, but I personally believe its worth the cost. I had no issues with construction or quality, it's well made and will protect my guitar.

                                          Great case. I use it for my 6120 Hot Rod Setzer and it fits perfect.

                                            Sturdy, well made, hardware works fine, and my Electromatic 5420T fits in it like a glove.

                                                not a quality case, uncomfortable plastic handle, light gauge metal on hardware.
                                                top lid of case is flimsy. Expected better from Grestch.
