Best Case I've Ever Owned
by Langston from Columbia, SCJust got this for Christmas to help keep my Gibson SG 60s Tribute safe. My mom was raving over the customer service of Sweetwater while I was raving over how perfect this case is. It's so strong and s... read more [+]o protective. When it comes to cases I have owned, this one is king. I have owned off brand cases from random guitar stores and outlets and the SKB is by far the ultimate case. It has very strong latches and comes with two keys for locking. Wont be worried about my baby getting broken or scratched anymore. You will be happy with this one. close [-]

Great construction, poor fit.
by Bill from PhillyI would give this case 5 stars for construction quality, but one star for fit.

Music Background: It's my escape from the real world
Like any SKB case, this thing is built like a tank. High quality padding, latches, and shell. These cases... read more [+] can take a lot of abuse.
However, it's too bad they designed this case to fit both the SG and the Viper. My Gibson SG fits in the case, but it's by no means a proper fit. The treble hit the side of the the case, because the SG body doesn't sit squarely in the cavity. Its a flaw caused by making the case able to fit the Viper's horns. The other issue is with the support up near the headstock. It's simply not high enough, which causes the headstock to bottom out. It might be high enough for an SG with a baseball bat neck (though I doubt it), but it's not even close for my 60's profile neck.
It really is a shame they tried to kill two birds with one stone when designing this case. If they made two cases with different interiors they would have had another homerun on their hands. But as it stands I cannot recommend this case for an SG. close [-]
