    Bought this for my daughter. Fits her Yamaha APX700 perfectly. This is a nice case with well padded interior and stout exterior. Get one....you will like it.

    Yamaha hard case

    My son loves his new guitar case. It holds the guitar tightly in the case. It's soft inside.

    Heck of a deal!

    This case is worth every penny. I was seriously shocked at the quality when I got it out of the box; I have other guitar cases that cost more, and seems to be made of cardboard. In fact, I think I paid almost this much for a guitar *bag*. Awesome.

    And I still don't know how I can order a product from Sweetwater in the afternoon, and it be on my doorstep the next morning. Voodoo.

    excellent case for the price

    I replaced my daughter's old guitar case. Even though the reviews were great, I just expected an above average case. This case is is an excellent buy--it is a strong case with lots of padding. It could safely travel with baggage on an airline flight...she has not tried it yet though..

    Looks great, guitar fits perfectly, good hardware. I like that it has no logo. Shipped quickly. I'm simply too stngy to give anything 5 stars.

    The Yamaha GA-02

    This is a great acoustic case. I love the angle on the handle too. Case arrived with the guitar and everything in perfect shape! My guitar teacher was impressed at how the guitar had been set up and checked out. ( And he is PICKY!) Thanks Sweetwater! You definitely have all of my future business!

    Nice Case!

    This case fits my Fender Concert Grand (CG140SCE) almost as though they were made for each other. On the inside, there is a small space where a yamaha's preamp controls would be. This space doesn't line up with the Fender's coresponding controls, but this causes no concern at all. This is a sturdy and nice-looking case at a price that simply can't be beat!

    It is perfect and looks good.

  • from Atlanta February 13, 2013

    Good case

    Case seems to be made well enough,but didn't fit guitar as it should .... The case was to deep to hold guitar in place.With that said I always keep rag in my cases for wiping down the guitar after use . I just folded it and placed it under the body of the guitar. Raised high enough to allow case to hold it in place...

    Nice Case

    Fits the guitar great. Seems to be very well made. It's for my 12 year old daughter's guitar so I hope to say the same in a year or so.

    Fits perfectly.

  • from Yoder IN USA January 6, 2013Music Background:

    Decent quality case

    The latches are a little on the lose side. Though they are thight enough to stay locked.
    It would have been nice to have inside dementions listed.
    My guitar is 39.5" long and it looks like there's about 1.5" letf in case.
    The body is 19" long with very little wiggle room there.
    Upper bout is 11" snug fit.
    Lower bout is 14" there is about another inch left to go in case.
    The body is 4.5" thick snug fit.
    I wouldn't put any thing thicker in this case.
    Still for $50 its a great of a deal.

    Guitar Case

    I recently purchased the GA-02 guitar case for an Ibanez AEG10 acoustic/electric guitar. Not sure exactly how this would work, however Dan provided me the dimensions of this case. He informed me that if I wasn't satisfied, just return it for a refund. He took the time with myself to do some research for a proper fit. The guitar case arrived at my home the very next day. With much anticipation, I opened the package, grabbed the Ibanez and placed it in the case. To my amazement, this case fit the guitar like a glove. The case is actually a steal for the money. Hard shell design, 4 gold plated hinges, plush lining and even a lock with key. I have bought several items from Sweetwater and have been completely satisfied, not only with your products but you knowledgeable staff,,,keep up the good work and thanks.

    Just the thing!

    It is always a gamble, buying a case for an acoustic guitar you already own. the "box" guitar really needs the protection that a hard case provides, but if the case is too large the guitar can rattle around, too small and it's unusable. My new APX500 is an answer to a prayer for me. The robust electronics (onboard tuner is way cool, too!) give me a punch I never got from my Godin, Alvarez, or Ovation. Unfortunately, mine came with a gig bag, so I was looking for a hard case that fit the guitar, which is a little on the small side. Enter Sweetwater, who offer this case at what I consider the low end, price-wise. I bought it sight unseen (less than fifty bucks), and lo and behold, it is AWESOME!! Truly made for the APX, it has the super-thick padding on the sides to where you actually have to "snug it in," meaning you have to push the guitar into the case and you can hear the "whoosh" of air around the cutaway as the guitar slides home. Latches, hinges, covering, all top notch. I am very impressed with the case, and I am SUPER-impressed with the price and service from Sweetwater!! Thanks, guys, you'll be hearing from me again!!

    Nice solid case for the money.

    This is the style case that many manufacturers use for their guitars. It's well padded and is made from plywood.

    The Yamaha GA-02 is a Great Value

    After trying unsuccessfully for months to find a great-fitting hardshell case for my Ibanez Montage, Sweetwater came through with the perfect solution for less than half the price quoted by others. The GA-02 is surprisingly compact, solidly constructed, and outfitted with a roomy storage compartment. The fit is so snug I'd almost swear this case was custom-made for this guitar. Shipping was free and customer service was top-notch. To say I'm pleased would be the understatement of the year! Keep up the great work!

  • from Dallas, TX February 11, 2012

    great product, awesome service

    The case is perfect. Fits like a glove, came in impeccable condition, arrived sooner than expected, and was less expensive than all the other dealers I considered. Besides the great product, service from Sweetwater was incredible. Next time I do online shopping for music, I know where I'll be doing business.

    Great purchase Yamaha GA-02 (Black)

    My grand daughters Guitar instructor stated that this case was exceptional in its quality. The service I received from your company was over the top great. I told my daughter i would purchase my grand daughters next upgraded guitar from your company due to the quality of the item and the service I was afforded during this purchase. Thank you for being an online company that is easy to work with.

    This is a basic, no frills hardshell case. Sturdy. Fits like a glove. Good buy.

    Beautiful Case

    I bought this case for an older Takamine slim body acoustic electric, hoping it would fit. It fit like a glove and is a very nice-looking and secure enclosure for your valued instrument. The inner lining is extra plush and the latches have a fit and finish that you usually see only on more expensive gear. I couldn't be happier with the purchase.

    Thrilled with This Case!

    I just received this case today (ordered it two days ago - very speedy!!) and I am thus far thrilled with it. It looks and feels sturdy, the padding inside is great, and the hardware on the case is slick. For the amount of money this case is, it's totally worth the buy. I have been looking for a hard Yamaha case for my APX acoustic / electric guitar and Sweetwater was the only place I could find one. A great buy. I was not expecting something this nice when I ordered.

  • from Port Orchard, WA USA March 28, 2011Music Background:

    Great Case

    I was looking for a case to secure my Yamaha APX500 for regular air travel overseas. This case was made for the APX series. The case structure is very solid with a durable hard outside plastic covering. The hinge and latch hardware should keep the case closed but I will supplement that with a TSA luggage strap to ensure it stays closed during travel. The padding inside is enough to keep the guitar protected (with strap) plus it fits in there with very little play. Sure, I could spend well over $100 on a better case but then the case would cost more than 40% the price of the guitar. I gave this case 4.5 stars because for $49.99 including shipping it is a good value and it should last quit a few years.

    Great buy

    I give it a 3 star because there are better cases out there, but if I were rating value it would be 5 stars. When they say it is vinyl, they aren't kidding. The "wood" appears to be leather covered, but I think it is the same stuff they make those plastic yard chairs out of, no wood or leather at all. That is tough stuff, and this case should handle abuse well. The padding is good, the hardware is not the best, but for this price, that would be unreasonable. It will protect my guitar, it looks good, and it would probably do better than a wood case if left out in the rain. My lawn chairs do. A great deal for the money.
