    Guitar case review.

    This case is well built and with the handle position, is extremely easy to carry. The one thing that you notice immediately is the quality of the materials used in its construction. The interior is well padded for keeping your baby safe. Excellent value at this price!.

    Awesome guitar case

    The guitar case I received was MUCH better than I had thought!! The customer service was incredible during and after the purchase!! ( My personal representative Trevor was genuinely interested in my complete satisfaction). I will be using Sweetwater again when the time arises.

    Sweet case

    Nice job. Closure almost open at a touch, but remain secure until touched. Detail is, well, detailed. Balance is perfect.

    Great Case!

    Ordered this for my Fender T Bucket acoustic, great fit! Very nice quality hard case with soft interior and nice compartment for storage inside. Hard to go wrong with a Gator case.

    Case for my Taylor 114e

    Yes the Taylor case is nice and designed specifically for my Taylor, but it is more than double the cost of this case. This case is well made and protects the Taylor 114e very well. Has great padding all around including the bottom. I was concerned that my Taylor being an "auditorium" size guitar vs a dreadnought that the case would not be "tight" enough. The fit is fine and leaves enough room on the shoulders that you don't have to worry about the electronic control knobs being an issue. It also has a nice deep storage compartment for all your extra do dads. I recommend this case for anyone who want's a quality case without breaking the bank. Only reason I did not give this 5 stars is they did not have a "Brown" option, only black.

    An almost perfect solution

    Splitting my living between two locations means that I wanted a case I could fly with. Unfortunately, all the cases, including all manufacturers, with TSA locks are 1/2" - 1" too short for my Guild Guitar. With the help of both Gator and Sweetwater, the solution narrowed down to just a few cases. The GW-DREAD was one of them. While it lacks the TSA locks (the reason for 4.5 rather than 5 stars), it is a fantastic fit for my instrument. It has a locking latch, which I won't use because TSA would destroy it the first time they tried to open the case. A velcro type band around the case will work. It has extra padding under the body of the guitar and looks like it will provide great protection for my prized instrument. It may not even require any towels for extra padding.

    I chose the black case rather than the off-white burlap case because the airlines would scuff, bang, and mark the white case in one trip. Also, the Tolex will allow stickers, for identification, to adhere.

    Everything about the case: the materials, hardware, handle appear to be strong enough for the use I have in mind. The case is fairly heavy, at 12-13 pounds, so for day-to-day use, I will be using a gig bag at about 1/4th the weight.

    This is a great case and I'm glad I bought it.

    Very happy

    I purchased this case as a gift and had no idea what kind of case would fit an older guitar. I called and they were so helpful. Would highly recommend this company

    Good solid case

    When I purchased my Epiphone EL-00 Pro there wasn't a case available. My rep (Jesse) at Sweetwater assured me that this would fit the bill and provide great protection. He didn't steer me wrong.
    It fits the guitar like a glove and is a very sturdy build. No worries!

    Great Case for the Money

    This is a great case for the money. I appreciate that it has metal "feet" on the bottom and the side you would lay the case down on. Very nice inside and out!
