The case for the Dean V's fits the instrument like a glove. There is a lot of padding in the bottom of the case as well as the top and it has a big storage area. The case is very sturdy and manufactured very well and it has 2 locks on the clasps.

The two last Dean V cases came in. Both of them suffer from the same assembly problems described previously. The crossbar inside the case that holds the top of the neck in place and the compartment door is improperly attached: loose, almost falling off and basically useless. The screws that are mounted through the bottom of the case do not line up with the wooden frame of the crossbar. One crossbar was entirely detached and flopping around. I had MF check the last case before they shipped it and yet it still had a loose crossbar. I can put my fingers between the crossbar and the bottom of the case as the screws do not properly connect these two structures. In addition, there are staples that are mounted (under the tolex!) from the sides of the case into the wood portion of the crossbar; these staples are all loose or in the wrong spot. My options are to either fix the problems myself or return the cases to MF. I have had extensive discussions with both MF (Harrison at ext. 2084) and Scott Frazer, quality control manager at Dean and Luna Guitars. So far, I have decided to keep two defective Dean V cases that I won't put my Dean V79s in because they fit too tight and the cutout in the crossbar at the top of the neck is in the wrong place, which puts sideways pressure on the neck. I have two other (non Dean) Vs that fit fine in these two cases. I am returning two cases that were not assembled properly or have shipping damage. The last two cases I have decided to fix myself, reassembling them properly because if properly assembled they fit fine.
There has been a change in the design of the Dean V cases that I don't like: my older Dean V cases cradle the neck where it attaches to the guitar body, leaving the top of the neck free to float. The new cases look exactly the same from the outside but they cradle the neck at the top, by the nut, and the neck doesn't even touch the cutout in the crossbar where the neck attaches to the body. Because of this, if the lid of the case pushes down on the fretboard of the guitar, it is possible to put pressure on the guitar neck between the nut and the body of the guitar, which could potentially bow the neck. I prefer not to have my cases put any type of downward or sideways pressure on my guitar necks if at all possible and I have been buying Vs and cases for Vs for 45 years.
I now have two V cases to return, four new cases that I am keeping but of those four cases, only ONE of them is acceptable for my Dean V79s. The other three have other brands of Vs in them: a Dean Michael Schenker V with a slightly different shaped body than the V79s, a Washburn Dime V and a custom prototype V made in Japan.
In addition to all this, I also purchased a Dean Performer acoustic case which arrived with the brown tolex peeling off at the seams. I told Scott at Dean that I would fix it myself if he would send me some cans of 3M spray adhesive because I am tired of sending back cases and waiting for their replacements, hoping that the next case will be okay. I have had more problems with Dean guitar cases in the last month than all the other cases that I have purchased over the last 45 years combined. I have purchased six non Dean guitar cases over the last three months, all for Les Paul guitars and not one of them had any problems.
At this time I cannot recommend Dean cases; they have a serious quality control problem at their factory in Canada. I'm still waiting to hear back from Scott and am getting closer to just returning the acoustic case.

          The perfect case for a Dean Chicago Standard V '77 guitar.

          Comments about Dean V Hardshell Guitar Case:

          The case is extremely well made and much larger, in comparison to the guitar. The picture used on the MF website is not accurate. The case in the picture looks like it barely is large enough for the case. In reality, the case extends several inches in all directions beyond the dimensions of the guitar.
          This is one hefty, beefy case. I am very glad I bought it. The perfect case for a Dean Chicago Standard V '77 guitar.

          Comments about Dean V Hardshell Guitar Case:

          I ordered this case online because you can't order a Gibson case separately for their Flying V.
          It fits the Gibson V nicely however the case is heavy (21 pounds), weighs much more than the guitar (7 pounds) and is not balanced, especially when there is no guitar in it. The quality control was not good either. The stitching had missing stitches, there was a burn mark that looked like a cigarette burn on the vinyl that covers the corners and there was a cut mark in the tolex about 2 inches long where the assembler trimmed off the piping on the vinyl corners. Very poor quality control. It was satisfactory on the inside and seemed to protect the guitar very well. For the price I paid I expected better quality. Be sure to examine it thoroughly when you receive it to make sure there are no issues. 3 stars. If I could order a Gibson case instead I would.

              For Flying V guitar, this undoutably has the best fit
              for the guitar, and is the highest quality case I've ever seen
              lots of compartment space made well, the best money can
              buy.

              Comments about Dean V Hardshell Guitar Case:

              The two last Dean V cases came in. Both of them suffer from the same assembly problems described previously. The crossbar inside the case that holds the top of the neck in place and the compartment door is improperly attached: loose, almost falling off and basically useless. The screws that are mounted through the bottom of the case do not line up with the wooden frame of the crossbar. One crossbar was entirely detached and flopping around.

                Comments about Dean V Hardshell Guitar Case:

                I ordered four of these Dean V cases for some of my guitars. The first one was defective, it put sideways pressure on the guitar neck. I have contacted the manufacturer about it. The second and third cases came in today; one was damaged by UPS and is being returned, the other one is fine. My Dean V79s fit snug as a bug in these cases; my Dean Michael Schenker V fits loosely and moves around in the case. My Dean Michael Amott Tyrant V doesn't fit in this case, no way nohow. Its legs are too wide to fit in the case. I have two more of these cases on the way now for more of my Flying Vs. I have fifteen Vs and cases made by six different manufacturers. Most Vs do not swap into other manufacturers' cases, keep this in mind when you buy a V case. Dean Vs are superior in many ways to my other Vs, which include Gibson V2, BC Rich JR-V, Dean Michael Schenker Baby V, Epiphone V, Washburn Dime V and three custom made Vs.

                Just got this case for my 74 Gibson Flying "V." They said it would fit it, it does. Snug too, like it was made just for it. Save your money and don't buy the SKB plastic case as I checked it out. This one will make you beloved "V" happy.

                    This case is beautiful. It has all appearances of being a sturdy, well built case. There's one problem; when I called to inquire about it, I was told it would hold a Jackson RR guitar.

                    It does not. Not anywhere near. I'm pretty disappointed that I was led to believe this case would work for a Jackson RR and it doesn't. I guess I'll have to go with the molded case, which I've been trying to avoid.

                    I can't tell you how bad I wanted this case to work. :-(
