I have a couple of generic cases for my Les Pauls, and this one fit as snugly and properly as the original Gibson HSC. An excellent choice for keeping your personal collection safely enclosed at home. Would probably handle light transporting needs, but not exactly a touring case. Perfect for home use and storage of your Gibson.

I've purchased 3 of these cases for some of my LPs, both Gibson and Epiphone, and all my guitars fit well within them. This includes an Epi FX/Pro which has a floyd rose bridge and extra long head stock to accomodate the locking nut. While the cases are not the same quality as a genuine gibson case, they are far better protection than ANY gig bag. If instrument protection is your aim, and cost matters, this would be a good choice.

Comments about Musician's Gear MC22LP Deluxe Hardshell Case:

A very nice case, especially when it is on sale. Strong enough, plush enough, nice handle, but you get what you pay for. Also, make SURE you measure your guitar , as my Epi LP Jr. (39 5/8" overall) did not fit. I can "make" it fit, and MF did offer to exchange it. But do not know if it is worth the return shipping. Anyway, this is what my case measured INSIDE, without compressing the padding:
39 1/8" overall length
9 1/4" wide upper bout
9 5/8" wide @ waist
12 1/8" wide lower bout
3 1/8" deep
Hope this helps, good luck !

Comments about Musician's Gear MC22LP Deluxe Hardshell Case:

My Epi Les Paul fits in the case but the neck doesn't reach the neck support a towel is needed for the neck to rest comfortly. Other than that it does the job.

      Comments about Musician's Gear MC22LP Deluxe Hardshell Case:

      I own a ESP LTD EC-1000 and it fits perfectly in the case although the TIP of the headstock is a bit of a tight call it fits itn never the less and it keeps it safe.its amazing - buy it.
      Comes with a healthy sized Compartment in the case and a lock and key
      Great Build quality and no visable downsides
      for the price you cant walk past it.it does the job perfectly - no need to spend hundreds on a case for your LP

        Comments about Musician's Gear MC22LP Deluxe Hardshell Case:

        These cases were on sale, and I ordered two of them. I needed cases for an Epiphone LP Traditional Pro, and an Epiphone Les Paul Special 1. Amazingly, they both fit quite well, with no slop or movement in the case. The storage compartment is nice, and they are pretty well padded. There is also room for a heavy guitar strap. The weak part about these cases is the handle. It doesn't look like it will hold up to much hard use without breaking loose from the hardware, but time will tell. I needed a couple of gig bags for these guitars, and for not much more cash, I ended up with two hard shell cases. If I treat them right, I'll be glad to get several years use out of them. They have about the minimum number of latches required to secure the case, but they work just fine. I like these cases, but I wouldn't be too happy to pay full price for them due to concerns about their longevity. If you need a budget case for your Lester, this is the one.

            I bought this for a made in Japan Edwards E LP 130 that is a high quality Les Paul clone. The case is so loose that the headsock will bang back and forth like a ping pong ball just from tilting it. I could stuff a wash rag in there folded over 3 times to tighten it up. It's too loose for me and it's going back to the store.

                I purchased this case as recommended by a Musician's Friend staff person, who I can only assume hates Les Paul guitars. The case has s stress fracture after one trip. One end of the handle gave up the FOURTH time it was picked up. These cases are BS. Don't buy one. If someone gives you one, give it back! I gave it one star, because that was the least allowed. There should be a minus category for garbage like this case.

                  Comments about Musician's Gear MC22LP Deluxe Hardshell Case:

                  I have multiple cases in different price ranges. This is an excellent value for the money. May not be as sturdy as a flight case but it's not nearly as expensive either!
                  I bought it aprox a year ago and it provided protection during a household move, band practices and multiple gigs over that time.
                  I've found that the storage space is great for all the basics and then some. Will hold a strap, capo, tools, picks, etc. One reviewer said the door was flimsy or loose. When it's closed and a guitar is stored inside, the pressure from the instrument keeps the door closed and all accessories in the compartment.
                  The interior padding is fine and the bottom wedge padding seems to help hold the guitar in place better than some other cases. The case is a little deeper than others for this type of guitar but that just gives me piece of mind to allow for more room for the angled headstock and tuning keys. I also think this might be to accomodate some thicker bodied guitars. The body is a very snug fit, think eggs in a carton. No room to slide around inside.
                  The latches are sturdy enough and still lock tight after typical use. The exterior has held up well in car trunks, back seats, stages and practice spaces. Even with bumps, rain, humidity and changes in the weather the outside is holding up well with no signs the glue seperating from the case.

                      Though a little deep, this case is a really good fit for an LP junior guitar. A small cloth under the base of the guitar makes it work perfectly. Considering the cost you can't ask for more

                              Let's face it, these are budget cases - you buy it because of the price. I bought one of these a couple of years ago and at that time they were quite snug on a Gibson Les Paul, so snug that an Epiphone would not fit (the headstock is a little longer). Just got another one and the good news there is plenty of room to fit Epiphones (or other brands). The downside is it is a bit loose on a Gibson Les Paul. IMO, easy enough to add a towel or similar to get a more snug fit. I think the extra room is an improvement.

                                This case is just what I needed to store my Epiphone Les Paul. I did on-line chat with Zachary and he promised it would fit and it did. Very helpful. I would not stack a bunch of weight on it, but I don't ever do that anyway. Latches all work good. Considering what it cost, I am very satisfied.

                                  These cases are being made better and better. My son dropped my Gibson LP off the third floor at my friends apartment. He is only 8 years old and when he told me about it he was crying. I was almost in tears myself, when I went to retrieve it. To my surprise the guitar was in perfect shape and the case had only a small dent on the corner where it landed. I will buy many more of these cases for my LP collection. The latches and the lock is sturdy, so are the hinges. They know how to make them nowadays!

                                  I've purchased 3 of these cases for some of my LPs, both Gibson and Epiphone, and all my guitars fit well within them. This includes an Epi FX/Pro which has a floyd rose bridge and extra long head stock to accomodate the locking nut. While the cases are not the same quality as a genuine gibson case, they are far better protection than ANY gig bag. If instrument protection is your aim, and cost matters, this would be a good choice.

                                    Fits my Epi LP like glove, can fit a capo, tuner, and cord in the case as well. Seems like solid construction, and handle has some beef so it's comfortable to carry.

                                      This is a good case. The only down side was that I didn't receive a key for the lock. I have a Les Paul standard and it fit perfectly.

                                      Comments about Musician's Gear MC22LP Deluxe Hardshell Case:

                                      I was looking for an inexpensive hardshell case for my Kraken Legion 3 Les Paul Style guitar and did not want to get a case that did not fit. So I measured my Kraken, total length (39.25"), body length (17.33"), upper bout (9") and lower bout (13") widths and emailed Musicians Friend. They emailed me back in a day or so stating that it would work for a guitar of those dimensions.

                                      I ordered the case on sale and MF was very good working with me to sweeten the deal when I bought 2 Musicians gear cases at the same time. The other case was the black rectangular model that I also reviewed. That case was a good fit for my BC Rich Mockingbird ST but also suffered from the thin interior padding.

                                      The exterior of the LP Style case looks sharp and felt quite sturdy and the latches and handle are fine also. But like the black rectangular Musicians Gear case, the inner padding in this model is quite thin and not firm at all. I would recommend this case primarily for home storage, and for transport only if you are the type person who is careful when moving their valuable guitars about. I am careful with my gear and rarely take it out of the house anyway so it will work fine for me.

                                      I would recommend this case mostly when it is on sale, and less so when it isn't. That said, I do find it a better overall value than the black rectangular Musicians Gear case. It just seems sturdier to me, and perhaps a bit better made.

                                        This is the third one I've bought. My new LP Tribute 60's Paul fits very well. The other two have held up well going to jams (I use them for an LP '55 Pro and an LP Standard). This case is a great buy for the money!!!
