    Gator ES 335 molded case

    I have a DeArmond Starfire semi-hollowbody electric, which was Guild's cheaper version of the Starfire IV. I was apprehensive about getting a case, since it wasn't a "major brand" guitar, but the guys at Sweetwater assured me that this case would fit. And fit it does, very well. The case is well built and attractive, and is very lightweight, which is a blessing since the guitar is quite heavy. I'm glad I didn't get the slightly cheaper wooden alternative.
    In short, this is a quality case, and I will look to Gator the next time a need a guitar case.

    Gator GC-335 Works Well

    The Gator case was a great fit to my Coronado II. What was really Great was the fact that the Sweetwater rep fit the guitar in the case to see if it fit before purchasing it. No guessing.
    The case is well built and will protect the guitar well. Mostly it just sits there waiting for me to put the guitar away...ha

    Gator GC-335

    This case is not just for an Acoustic Guitar, it can house an electric Epiphone Guitar as well! Very impressed!

    Great Case

    Just got this for my Epi Dot and, it is a perfect fit. Debated on whether to go with the Epi case but, I chose this one instead mainly because the Epi cases scuff and, tear so easily compared to the hardshell cases. Either one will do the job and protect the instrument but, my experiences with hardshell cases are more positive than negative. This one costs a little more than the Epi case but, I feel it is worth it.

    The case came quick, and just in time to carry my new Gretsch to the gig! Thanks Kurt Martin and Sweetwater for the very timely shipment! The case is almost perfect, and no fault of the case... I have a thin hollow Gretsch... 5620t, which did not come with a case. I don't understand this, other than it lowers the sale price of the guitar, but I wasn't able to find a case that perfectly fit this model. The cases I found, even the Gretsch case that supposedly matched the guitar, was too deep and required a lift at the tail to allow the guitar to lay flat... otherwise closing the case put undue downward pressure on the head stock. The gator case was simply a better built case than the Gretsch, and with a towel under the guitar so it lays flat, was a near perfect solution!!! Thanks Kurt for the recommendation!

    Great Case

    Finding a case for a 335 style electric guitar is not simple, especially if you are not looking to advertise what's inside. This case fits the bill perfectly. Its solid, light weight and I am comfortable my guitar is well protected.

    The real story is Sweetwater''s service, however, I ordered it in the morning and it arrived the next afternoon! Wow!

    Good starting point

    This case has sufficient space for a 12 string headstock with room to spare. Good fit on the sides for an Ovation Storm series body. Seems decently constructed and assembled. It's set up for quite an angle between the body and the neck. For my Ovation Hurricane the body of the guitar needs to be shimmed up about an inch in order for the neck to make contact with both cradles in the case or the neck cradle nearest the body need to be adjusted/shortened. Not a big deal to modify.

    I have always been happy with the things I have gotten from Sweetwater. This Guitar Case is as good as they get. My 335 fits in it safely and leave room for the other things I like to keep with it.

    Great, BUT

    When I received my Gator GC-335 it was a perfect fit for my Gretsch. It was exactly what I was looking for at the right price. However, within 2 1/2 months one of the hinges broke. I was disappointed because every thing I read about Gator was very good. The best news is that when I called my rep, Ed Needler, he took care of getting me a replacement without blinking an eye. This is why I use Sweetwater. So I am hopefull that the new one will not have this problem.
