Decent though not quite perfect fit for a 1984 Gibson Explorer. Comparison to original case : SKB - better shape for weight distribution, original : front-end heavy rectangular. SKB - lots of pockets and compartments, original-none. SKB - decent zipper original - 3 weak latches. SKB - not quite enough room for tremolo bar , original - OK. I agree with the previous reviewer ; the backpack straps are not good and were removed immediately. This is a decent lower cost replacement for and old warped latchless no compartment case. Not advised for travel but just fine for at home .... 3.5 stars. Always superb service from Sweetwater ; immediate delivery is mind-boggling.


Pro: Fits a 1984 Gibson Explorer well , lots of storage pocket/compartment space for accessories. Balanced well as far as weight distribution unlike original rectangular case. Price reasonable. Con: Backpack-type straps clumsy and removed immediately. Good job by Sweetwater ; very fast shipping and follow-up.


The case fits like a glove around my 2003 Gibson Explorer. It affords great protection from the elements (and my two cats). The two zipper compartments are handy. The shoulder straps are horrible. They aren't quite long enough for an adult male, especially wearing a winter coat. Also, the ends will slip right out of the clasp while your trying to adjust them. What a way to wreck a guitar. I had to modify the straps by hand to prevent dropping guitars in the subway. I have cheap school bags with better straps.
