I need this case!Okay, You were right. I hesitated at first, but was really convinced after seeing the case myself, especially when I put my guitar in it for the first time. The fit is firm and snug even with the lid open! Remember the cases from the seventies ? Even when they were closed you could feel your guitar shifting around inside. Not this baby! I strongly advise this as the best option for a new or used purchase.

Great CaseYou get what you pay for! The case has locks on it, keeping other people from playing my Les Paul, which is a huge deal for me. It is very well padded. Another thing about this case is that, if your guitar is damaged while in the case, the company will reimburse you for the damage. The pocket underneath the neck support is fantastic for holding your tuner, strap, picks, cords, and basically anything else. Overall, this case is definitely worth the money and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting the best protection for their Les Paul.

AWESOMELY SWEET caseIt's An Awesome case. For cases anyway. Once when I had my Les Paul in it I put it into the bed of my dad's truck. It happened when we got to where we were going I went to get it out of the back of my dad'a truck to find that it fell out of the bed of the truck! We finaly found it. Some guy found it in the middle of the road and took it to a policestation. When I finally got it there was nothing wronge or messed up with the guitar, and no scratches on the case! VERY SWEET CASE!!!!

Smart & tough guitar case.I bought it about two years ago for my new electric guitar. I found it extremely reliable and tough for the road use. No doubt it is a light weight case but that does not compromise with its sturdy & robust construction. The synthetic material being employed at its exterior is very solid indeed because as a matter of fact it does not peel off or torn away like most of the cheap cases with laminated or artifical leather coverings. This particular case hardly requires any maintenance, you just wipe it off with damp cloth and it is just like new again, no fading is observed so far. The reinforced metal trims are very durable, futhermore its latches and hinges are of high quality material as mine are still free from rust or stains. The interior is again very nicely build with ample amount of cushion for your valued instrument. The most worth mentioning feature of this case is Humb type shape of its upper lid which provides an extra reinforcement and thereby prevents it from collapse under load. As far as its durablity is concerned it can be very well illustrated from my own experience that it was being brought to Pakistan from United States in the flight luggage section and it successfully tolerated all the jerks & hittings with grace. I am proud to have this one and it deserves to get all the five points for carrying my guitar safe and sound to destination miles away without fear. So stop thinking over & over again, simply go and get this one at once please. Thanks & all the best.

Pretty GoodIt is very sturdy and form fitting to my Les Paul. It does the job. Downers: the key fitting into the lock is a little stubborn and the top lock has to have the cover slightly nudged for it to close, sometimes. It might just be my case, but it certainly doesn't bother me. The case is a good buy and completely outweighs the minor flaws of my case. My sales engineer did a wonderful job handling my purchase. I live in Ohio, and I got the case the next day. I'm very happy with my purchase and Sweetwater.

Perfect for SG2000Fits my vintage Yamaha SG2000 like a glove. Would have liked a little more room in the accessories compartment, but that's a nit-pick. Love the ATA-style latches.

Could be BetterI bought this case less than 30 days ago and already one of the plastic locks has snapped off. Luckily I had the option to exchange it or return it. The case is sturdy but the locks seem cheaply made, I would look at something else.
