Great case for ESP LTD EC or Eclipse!!

This rigid soft case is a absolutely perfect fit for my LTD EC 1000 guitar. It will also fit the other LTD EC series or the ESP eclipse series guitar. Very padded & lightweight as well. In my opinion this is better than a hard case!! Very affordable.

The best of both worlds!

A couple of my guitar cases were damaged in a basement flood. So when I first started looking for replacements, I thought it was a great opportunity to upgrade to something a little nicer than the cheap, flimsy soft cases I was using before. Like many people, I absolutely love my guitars and I wanted the best option I could afford. Soft cases + gig bags are affordable, light-weight, and often have pockets for things extra accessories. However, they don't always offer the best protection and some are poorly made. On the other hand, hard cases provide excellent protection, but they are very heavy and quite expensive. My research brought me to Sweetwater (which, by the way, is one of the few online retailers to offer this product). And I have to say, it is the perfect solution. The fuzzy-lined molded-foam interior holds my Epiphone Nighthawk Custom Reissue snugly and safely. The exterior backpack straps make it easy for me to trek to and from practices and gigs. The extra pockets carry all the necessary accessories like cables, strings, strap, etc. And the overall quality is top-notch. It feels built to last a long time. Simply put... the SKB-SC56 has hard case protection with gig bag portability! (I am so impressed with this case that I plan to get the SKB-SC30 model for my electro-acoustic Takamine.) For me, the price is well worth the cost to protect my beloved instruments. Stop reading this and get one already! You will not be disappointed :)

Excellent Soft Case

Excellent semi soft case. The plush interior and semi rigid sides really protect the guitar well. Plenty of storage. I took away half a star because the case doesn't want to stay upright when you set it down on its side. This is a minor issue though. Overall, I am very pleased with this case and would definitely purchase another for any new guitars or basses I might buy.

SKB Les Paul Case

This is a very nice case. I have bought and use several of these (Flying V, Strat, Explorer & Acoustic) and I have not experienced any problems.

Everything you Love about a hard shell and a gig one!

I wanted the portability of a gig bg but the security of a hrd shell case, all in one package. Too much to ask for? No! These SKB cases rock! I loved the first one so much that I bought a second. I use them with my PRS Zach Myers (single cut) and my PRS SE Custom 24 (double cut).
