Got this G6241FT for my G5120...awesome. Not sure how much better the deluxe version could be. This case is well constructed and my Gretsch fits perfect...no gaps. The latches don't appear to be too heavy duty...but they certainly do the job. The empty spaces and small storage area allows room for picks, capo, slide, cleaning rag, and other small accessories. The only pain is that the fit is so perfect I have to take the strap off. I simply roll the strap up and place it in the gap under the headstock area. Lightweight, yet durable. I like the fact that the case is flat instead of arched like the deluxe version...it allows for better storage. I was worried the flat top would put too much pressure on the strings, bridge, or trem bar but it really doesn't. Great case...and looks slick.
Good lining, good storage area, decent latches.
Good quality for the price...don't feel like you have to buy the deluxe to protect your G5120...this case is nice quality.
Great case for the price.

Bought this together with New Gretch Dreadknott guitar after I asked a rep from Musician friend if it would fit right. Case is too small, lid will close but without a fourth latch its doesn't stay closed all the way on that side. Hoping it would give some but worried how tight it is. probably will order a different case and send back Can get a better made case for the less money that is made for a Dreadknott just not a gretch or buy the more expensive Gretch case not knowing if they make a case that actually fit the Dreadknott series

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6241FT 16" Hollowbody Flat Economy Case:

    Fits my electromatic G5422TDC very well. Is a good price and seems like a good fit for the electromatic series cost-wise. If I had a vintage model, or one of the USA customs, would probably upgrade and get the deluxe or a nicer case, but for my needs with my guitar this is fine.

    I would consider this more of the "standard" case rather than calling it "economy".

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6241FT 16" Hollowbody Flat Economy Case:

    The case works, it's fine for storing your guitar at home or taking your guitar some place to play. But not sturdy enough to trust your beloved instrument, if this happens to be holding one, to some one else to move for you. I know that this is considered to be an economy case but how much more would it have cost the manufacturer to make the case with four latches. However I am glad to see a less expensive case is available for the electromatic line of guitars.

      Decent case for the money, Though a little heavy. Fit my Gretsch G5420 perfect even though the MF phone rep said it would not, because it wasn't on his list of guitars that would fit. MF drops the ball again.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6241FT 16" Hollowbody Flat Economy Case:

      If you're searching for a case that will cradle your 5120/5122, buy this one. For the price, it's a well made case. The only reason that this didn't get 5 stars was a few wonky stitches around the edges. It's not a big deal. The interior is soft and plush, with a decent sized box for all of your little stuff.

      Perfect, NOT economy!

      By Sailor Ripley

      from Dayton, OH

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6241FT 16" Hollowbody Flat Economy Case:

      I just received my G6241FT case, and it is nice! It fits my Gretsch G5122 perfectly. The case is black, with 3 brass latches on the side(the center with a hasp for use with a pad lock). The case and handle are well made. The "GreTsch" logo is painted on the lid down across the right corner. The inside is fuzzy grey with a standard storage box. This looks almost exactly like my Epiphone brand hard shell case for my Casino, only it is a little deeper and the "GreTsch" logo is in place of the Epiphone "e" logo. The lid and back are flat, and the sides are contoured like the outline of the guitar. I think is the description as "economy" is a little misleading. I would say this is the "standard" Gretsch hard shell case, and that the more expensive one they offer is the "deluxe". In my experience with Gretsch products, they seem to describe their products modestly. All the Gretsch guitars and accessories I've every bought have been better than I expected!

      Nice Case

      By Tess Stickles

      from San Diego, CA

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6241FT 16" Hollowbody Flat Economy Case:

      Make no mistake, this is the perfect case for your g5120. Too bad there is no product pic up for you to review. It comes to you in a nice Gretsch factory box packed and padded well. It has the Gretsch brand silkscreened on the black Tolex cover. Your G5120 will slide ever so gently into the gray fuzzy interior. For those who care, it has 3 latches the center of which has a padlock hasp not an internal locking mechanism. Enjoy. It's worth the hundred or so bucks.

        I ordered this case and saved money by ordering one that was shown as "Out Of Box". The case was listed as used on my invoice but the case exceeded all of my expectations. My Gretsch Streamliner G2420 fits in this case like a glove. I would recommend this case to other customers.

        This is a case made exclusively for a Gretsch model, but I don't recall which one. I don't have a clue why they called it an economy model. I've owned cases referred to as deluxe models that weren't as nice. I hope Gretsch finally gets the marketshare they deserve.

              Gretsch case for Gretsch G5210, however it's a tight fit. I am not one to make adjustments on something, but this could use a little adjustment on the frame work that holds the guitar neck, not much, but some. Otherwise, good value for the money.

                    this is not even the quality of the cases that always came FREE with my Les Paul purchases over the decades, and this was far from free. Prices are simply absurd these days. That said, it does fit my Gretsch G5420T perfectly. Would have been nice to have the satin overlay and back latches like my Les Paul case but it is what it is.

                              I actually have two of these cases one for my 5620CB and the newest one for my 5422T. These cases are well constructed and fit both guitars perfectly. Cases are sturdy and may be a tad bit heavy but that't not an issue for me. If you have a Gretsch with Bigsby or similar guitar this is a case you should strongly consider.
