Well Made

Just right for my Les Paul Tribute and the thickness of the liner provides extra protection. I also like the way the fasteners are...easier operation than the standard metal ones.

Perfect Fit

These cases are the best. I already had one that fitted my Fender Strat. My Les Paul fits snugly in this case. I like the snaps and being able to lock the case. I've had other cases that were alright, but none that were this nice. I'll never buy another except for an SKB case.

Smart & tough guitar case.

I bought it about two years ago for my new electric guitar. I found it extremely reliable and tough for the road use. No doubt it is a light weight case but that does not compromise with its sturdy & robust construction. The synthetic material being employed at its exterior is very solid indeed because as a matter of fact it does not peel off or torn away like most of the cheap cases with laminated or artifical leather coverings. This particular case hardly requires any maintenance, you just wipe it off with damp cloth and it is just like new again, no fading is observed so far. The reinforced metal trims are very durable, futhermore its latches and hinges are of high quality material as mine are still free from rust or stains. The interior is again very nicely build with ample amount of cushion for your valued instrument. The most worth mentioning feature of this case is Humb type shape of its upper lid which provides an extra reinforcement and thereby prevents it from collapse under load. As far as its durablity is concerned it can be very well illustrated from my own experience that it was being brought to Pakistan from United States in the flight luggage section and it successfully tolerated all the jerks & hittings with grace. I am proud to have this one and it deserves to get all the five points for carrying my guitar safe and sound to destination miles away without fear. So stop thinking over & over again, simply go and get this one at once please. Thanks & all the best.

It's An Awesome case. For cases anyway. Once when I had my Les Paul in it I put it into the bed of my dad's truck. It happened when we got to where we were going I went to get it out of the back of my dad'a truck to find that it fell out of the bed of the truck! We finaly found it. Some guy found it in the middle of the road and took it to a policestation. When I finally got it there was nothing wronge or messed up with the guitar, and no scratches on the case! VERY SWEET CASE!!!!
