Perfect for SG 400
I had my Epiphone in an SKB case for the past few years. I didn't have anything to compare it to--but I was bothered the SKB case was not padded well. It had a firm, hard (felt like) styrofoam under the carpet. The opening to the accessory pocket opened from left to right (Epiphone opens from right to left) while feeling very thin, flimsy and cardboard- like. I think the exterior of the SKB case is actually a hard plastic and will probably wear better than the epiphone case (which will be prone to the standard vinyl contusions and abrasions from heavy wear). However, the details are in the PADDING of the Epiphone case. Padded better, perfect fit for my SG, accessory compartment better padded and not so flimsy. I will probably give my SKB case away or sell it for a few lessons.
