These cases are worth far more than what they cost. A few things that I dig about these cases (I own three)

- The neck channel that the neck sits in is veru well-designed
- The integrated Velcro strap to secure the neck into place
- Handles tilt-back headstocks which all three of my ESPs have - a surprising number of cases do not, and it results in the tip of the headstock touching down on the bottom of the case which begs for neck warping
- Accommodates my 27" scale ESP/LTD baritones
- Sturdy as heck but lightweight
- Simple to remove inserts and replace with foam (I am doing that to one to accommodate my LP-type ESP Eclipse
- Good latches
- Nice overall design

It does not fit LP-style guitars (Les Paul, ESP Eclipse, etc) - as expected. SuperStrat cases never fit them as the guitar and neck joint are vastly differently shaped.

It's not worth the extra cash to shell out for a manufacturer's logo molded case, unless it's a true ATA case, like a Jackson case is. This case is worth every penny it costs.

The lack of a storage compartment is not a big deal at all. I don't need to store anything besides my guitar in a guitar case. No tremolo arm, etc.

I give these cases 5 stars. I plan to pick up another couple when they're back in stock.

This is a decent case, but the one I got had a funny chemical smell that lingered. Cheapo latches were hard to use. Ultimately I found a better case for not that much more and I returned this one. It does the job for a lot less than similar cases, so if you're on a budget, this case will do fine.

  • Pretty Dang Robust

Cons

  • Not Super Robust

Best Uses

  • Band practices
  • Gigging

Comments about Musician's Gear MGMEG Molded ABS Electric Guitar Case:

Quality should measured by the expectation of the buyer. No one should think that this case will handle the rigors of the road that, say, Richie Kotzen would put on his well-traveled Telecasters. However, if you are a local gigging weekend warrior, this case will provide adequate protection for a long time at a very good price. It's nearly as sturdy as an SKB case. If you buy it at regular price it costs half of the SKB price. On sale, it's less than that. I have no issue with how snug the fit of these cases are with my strat or tele. They fit, they don't move around and the plastic sides are fairly firm and thick. This is not the usual Musician's Gear crapola. I would NOT recommend their tweed style cases, but these are close to an SKB. And that's pretty good company.

      This is a great case for the price. I have similar Gator and RoadRunner cases, and the quality is almost as nice - but it is fantastic for being almost half the price! This thing is WAY better than similar priced gig bags. My Strat knock-off fits perfectly and securely. Plush interior is great.

        Comments about Musician's Gear MGMEG Molded ABS Electric Guitar Case:

        I ordered this for a 34 year old Peavey T15. It is a great fit, I suspect it will fit any of the T series guitars with no issues. It has a nice padded velcro strap near the body cavity to secure the neck. The case has three latches (one of them is locking). This case is great for storing a guitar at home or local travel in an automobile. I would recommend going with something of a more heavy duty nature if you intend to fly or if you plan to transport your guitar in a cargo truck with lots of big heavy items. This case is well built, but I question if it would withstand a direct hit by an Anvil Case carrying a fully loaded amp rack. The case did have some of that aromatic funk smell. I squirted some Febreeze on the upholstery and let it air dry, problem solved. I'm happy, my guitar is happy.

        I purchased this for an older model Peavey Predator Plus Strat style guitar. Perfect fit. I tried my Strat, Tele, and PRS all perfect fit. I own SKB, Gator, and, Epiphone cases and, this one compares very well with all of them. Very satisfied with this case. MF had an acc. promo that made the price on this case even a sweeter deal! Thanks!

            Comments about Musician's Gear MGMEG Molded ABS Electric Guitar Case:

            OK, this has got to be one of the most inexpensive ABS cases out there. I bought one to use as a daily case and save my more expensive Fender Artist Tweed case from abuse.

            This case is great. Yes the latches require you to properly line up the mechanism properly but this is no difference from the 80's Fender American Standard Cases or the ones I have seen on the Nash Guitar Cases here recently.

            Highly recommended unless you are a touring musician. For the average Joe, this case will do the job and then some.

                    This case ultimately is just styrofoam wrapped in felt in a cheap plastic case. However, I think it would work well if it had solid latches. Since the latches are flimsy, I would only recommend this product for something to house your guitar at home. Way too cheap for the price.

                          Bought 2 of these cases when they came back into stock.1-for my new Fender satin telecaster and the other for my Ibanez RG420EG. As others have stated, These cases are the BEST bang for the buck!! Solid construction, Well designed, No smell, Holds guitar neck in place with a strap, No worries about damaging your favorite axe!! Both are perfect for what I needed them for. That's the reason why they can't keep them in stock. You can pay more ,But you won't get better. Save some money and buy one of these, They don't disappoint!!!

                          I had ordered the LP-specific one and was sent this instead. The MF representative seemed surprised that this case didn't work. It doesn't fit a Les Paul style guitar at all. There's way too much room for the body and the head digs into the front. Be very careful when getting a case and make sure they send you the right one and that they don't try to convince you that "one size fits all" because it doesn't.

                          No padding. It's basically a thin plastic shell with chintzy fuzzy material covering inside. The latches and hinges are cheapo. It takes time and special effort to line up the latches to operate. I will use this case to store guitar at home. It will keep dust out, and yes, you get what you pay for.

                              Musician's Friend's Case Finder suggested this case for my guitar. The dimensions did not seem right so I called them directly. Their "expert" tech guaranteed me 100% that my guitar would fit this case even after I gave them the measurements of my guitar. Guess what...it didn't fit. Don't get me wrong, the case is really nice, just unhappy with the lack of knowledge.

                                Great case, has plenty of storage space (unfortunately they don't have any tops to close over the open storage areas, not a big deal) and its heavy duty so it'll protect your gear. I've been using it for the last month and a half and its done well under heavy gigging. Pretty affordable too and being that I have some odd shaped guitars (it fits a B.C. Rich Mock and Warlock) so if you're worried about your guitar/bass not fitting it probably will fit. Overall, its a nice case and it'll do the job and its not outrageously expensive so there's really no cons on this. Sure, you could buy the cheaper musicians gear case, but I doubt it would save your guitar if said case were to get dropped or banged against. This case is sturdy and built to last.

                                  These are Good cases. Not great or heavy duty, but good. They're perfect for everyday storage or transportation. I doubt they'd last long "on the road". I own several and have never been disappointed.

                                      It's not plush inside or particularly sexy-looking, but it's functional and it does its job. It protects my Strat, which fits perfectly.
                                      I would recommend this case to folks like me; gig on the weekends. Don't know how it would be for five night a week guys.

                                      I own 8 guitars, each with cases. This case has too much space. I have to place a towel as padding for my tele so it doesn't move around inside the case. It's a nice case, well built but I wish I had purchased a Fender case instead
