Nice Case for a Nice PriceI purchased this case for my Epiphone AJ-220S and it fits very nicely. As others have pointed out, the case pictured may not be the exact case that you will receive. The one I received actually looks to be of higher quality. Mine is black and brown and has the full "Epiphone" name printed on it. Well worth the money! Seems very durable and has a large storage compartment for your tuner, strings, picks, etc.

Great CaseI just recently purchased an Epi DR212 and, this is the perfect case for this instrument. Well made,Perfect fit, nice attention to detail with the brown tirm around the top and body of the case. Very satisfied and, Ryan Sloan was very helpful in all aspects of my purchases. Sweetwater adds that little extra customer service that makes them a leader in musical gear retailers.

Epiphone Dreadnought Guitar CaseExcellent, well made attractive case that fits the Epiphone 12 string I bought.
I am much happier with it than the case that came with my Martin JCM 16 ME.

Nice Case For A Good PriceBought this case for an Epi Hummingbird. It fits perfect and is a good quality case for the price. I shopped around and Sweetwater has the best price on this case. The latches do not feel quite as substantial as they do on the more expensive cases but they work fine. The brown trim against the black gives the case a little richer appearance, Overall an excellent case for a moderately priced guitar and a huge step up from a gig bag.

Worth it!For the price it was more than I expected. I've seen more expensive cases not made as well, especially the 5 latch system, nice touch and the latches really aren't that bad. Not top of the line, but for $89.00 it's a steal! Using it for my Epi Hummingbird and it's a really nice fit, couldn't be more pleased. Cool gray lining and two tone finish. Gave it four stars because of the price and quality. Totally worth it!

Heavy DutyIts a little on the heavy side and a little on the large side, but I know the guitar is well protected in this case. The covering seems to be a good material and they put a brown trim all around to dress it up a little. The gold clasps are not the best, but not the cheapest either, they do the job just fine. The inside is plush gray and fits my PR-100 perfect. I ordered the cheaper one, but it didn't fit the Epiphone, and had to send it back.

Great For the price :)Alittle heavey and guitar has a smooth snug fit :)
There are 5 latches to keep it secure but only the latch closest to the
handle has a lock on it. (the key will be in the accessories hole inside the case, you cant miss it ! eness your blind and dumb haha.
the lock can be broken though with a good hard pull, or your handy dandy crow bar. but it will keep the kids out of it..thats about it.
I got the case for my epiphone dove, its good fit keeps it in place securely, and gently :) So you wont have to worry about it guitar getting knocked out of tune in the case whever you take it. When I first got it I looked it over carfully to make sure nothing was missing or broken off, I was worried because of a previous review saying tey had a latch broken off..which for me was not the case. Everything works the way it was designed to do..which is hold your guitar safely.. Its a great case for the price free shipment plan took only took 3days. awsome case :D thanks sweet water ! *high five*

fits aj 500mThe case is heavy which i suppose is good and bad. This isn't the right picture though. On the front instead of the E symbol it actually says 'epiphone' and the trim around the edges of the case are brown, so this case isn't solid black. However, i was concerned about finding a case to fit my AJ 500M which is a slope shoulder guitar, and this thing fits like a glove. No movement whatsoever. As far as durability, I don't know how to rate this. Just got it and its my 1st hard shell case ever so, no frame of reference. I can say that sweetwater was great and shipped very quickly. Recieved the item after about 3-4 days from placing the order.

Not up to the standard of their guitarsI bought this for my Epiphone AJ 500m, in part to have a matching case for the instrument (dumb reason) and to replace my durafoam for a hardshell. Big mistake! Sweetwater's service was fine, but the case is very poor quality. As mentioned, it does not look like the picture, which I anticipated and doesn't bother me. But the quality is very poor. One of the latches was sitting in the bottom of the box, as it had fallen off. After some work, I was sort of able to get it back on so that it is serviceable to store my guitar in my study. I would not trust it for travel, either in an airplane or to throw it into a vehicle for a gig, but it is too much trouble to send back. I have two other Takamine's that came with cases, which are actually TKL's, and these are much better quality. I wish I would have gone with the Gator GC jumbo (more money), TKL, or even the Musicians Gear dreadnought case (much cheaper). I would not recommend this case.
