Great Fit For A G&L T Style Guitar

I needed a quality case for my G&L T Style Guitar So I Called Matt Alexander At Sweetwater! He Hooked Me Up! It Fits My Guitar Nicely! It's Snug Like It Should Be! Quality At A Fair Price!

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 Hard case

I find once again that purchasing anything form Sweetwater is an absolute joy. My case arrived the very next day and was everything it was supposed to be. It fit my classic vibe custom telecaster like it should. It's not really a problem but when you close the case you need to give a little push at the top where the head stock lies for the aluminum channel to properly mesh. But like I said it's not really a problem, just an awareness issue.
