A Must-Own for a Tele

First off, let me start by saying that I rarely review products, but I felt the need to give my two cents on the FS-6 because it is that good. This is the best case you are going to find for a Telecaster. I purchased an American Special Tele and was in the market for a hardshell case to protect my new investment since I am an avid gigging musician. After reading several reviews, I ultimately decided to pull the trigger on the FS-6 because it is compact, rugged, and fits my Tele like a glove. Mine arrived a half hour before I had to catch a flight from BWI to Nashville. Needless to say, my guitar survived the trip without a scratch and the TSA-approved locks allowed airport security to inspect everything with ease. If you are on the fence, take the leap. Thanks again Sweetwater--I look forward to my next purchase!

My favorite case for strat or tele

This SKB case is my favorite case for a strat or tele: it's form-fitting, fairly light, and less bulky and awkward than a rectangular case. I also personally prefer the added security of a durable hard shell case over a gig bag.

SKB 1SKB-FS6 Hardshell case

Bullet proof case with a perfect for for my Tele! Great value, too.

GREAT, contoured case that fits my Tele like a glove!

If you aren't keen on a big, bulky rectangular case, This is the best contoured case for a Tele that I've been able to find! The quality is great all around, GREAT fit, door for case candy, and GREAT latches. I'm only giving it a 4.5 rating due to the handle which seems like the only weak thing about the case. I've read some reviews about it failing, but if you're handy that isn't a problem. SWEETWATER RULES!!! I heard many good things about Sweetwater on the MLP Forum and have had the pleasure of dealing with them a couple of times now! Fast, friendly, and they send you a little bag of sweets as well!

Big Big Disappointment !!!

I odered the SKB 1SKB - FS6 and what a bummer ! The aluminum trim on the bottom of the case came Defective not once but twice !! Sweetwater has been great with customer service, but SKB quality control SUCKS!! I can see a case coming defective once but not twice. I am going try one more time to see if the third one will be the charm. I like the style of this case I am just trying to get one that is not screwed up straight out of the box.
