Very nice case

The inside of this case is REALLY nice. My ESP Explorer JUST FITS in the case, and not in an intuitive way. The corners fit snugly, so the guitar ain't going anywhere. The neck doesn't fit in the neck "groove," but that seems to have done no harm. The only worry I have is with the covering. It's really nice, shiny black, but it's not tolex. I think it's going to scratch pretty easily, but on the plus side, decals stick to it REALLY well.

Cost-Effective and Simple

I purchased an ESP/Edwards custom Explorer and I needed a hard case but didn't want something generic like the SKB. That's not to knock the SKB case but I wanted a more firm hold on the Explorer shape. Rather than purchase an unobtainable ESP hard case, I chose rather to purchase the Epiphone case and remove the logo. Much cheaper and does the exact same thing for a LOT less money and headache. Great purchase with the usual great Sweetwater customer service.

Explorer Case-Epiphone

The case is average and will work fine. I looked for a case for my HLK Explorer and didn't want to spend a lot on it and I found this case. Case is well built with plenty of room. The downside is that my guitar doesn't fit tight and I modified to make my Explorer fit tight and not move inside the case.

Fits Explorer like a glove and also the Guild X-80 and X-82

I was in need of a hard shell case to protect a rare Guild X-80 Skylark. Since this Guild has a radical, asymmetric shape similar to the Explorer, I figured I would give it a try. The case is built well and is large. The internal dimensions (something I could not find anywhere on the internet!) are 47 1/2 inches long and 16 3/4 inches wide. This includes pushing into the cushion so I would say these are the maximum dimensions that the case can hold. The body cavity is large and fits an Explorer very snugly with no chance of it moving around. The body cavity is 23 3/4 inches long. There is a little "step up" cushion that is 5 3/4 inches long right before the neck rest. The neck rest has a groove shaped into it that fits the Explorer design. It is NOT in the center of the neck rest. If you are in front of the open case, it starts 6 inches from the far side and stops at 8 1/2 inches (a 2 1/2 inch groove). The case closes tightly around the Guild X-80 and although it is shorter than the Explorer body, it does not move around in the case due to the snugness of the padding. I also tried a Guild X-82 Nova in the case and it fit even better! I tried a Guild S-281 Flyer in it and it fit but had way too much extra space around it. I tried a Guild X-79 and it did NOT fit. The distance between the upper horn and a point on the headstock on the X-79 does not clear the distance across the storage compartment. Anyway, I am satidfied with the case. It is not "top of the line" but it is solid and for the price, it is perfect especially if you are looking for a case for some very rare, oddball shaped Guilds, it will work for them too!!
