  • Great Case

    As reviewed by Claire on 1/3/2011

    I bought this case for my son who has a 1958 Explorer. He likes it very much. This heavy-duty case protects the guitar and is great for storage. Also, the store had it shipped to me, at no extra charge, within 4 days so that I had it in time for Christmas.

  • Fits Guild X-80 Skylark and X-82 Nova guitars too

    As reviewed by Aedan Hurley on 12/29/2011

    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. I received the case in 2 days. It had some smudges on the outside front but they do not bother me as the case will surely get its share of bumps as it protects its cargo inside. 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 happy 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!!
