This case is a perfect fit for the round shoulder AJ models. The description of the case isn't very clear on what Epiphone guitars it will fit, other than the fact that it just states "EDREAD Dreadnought Case". The AJ models have a rounded shoulder, as opposed to the dreadnoughts which have square shoulders. Without being able to fit test it, I wasn't sure if my AJ-500R would fit loosely in the case and move around in there. But when the case arrived, I set my guitar in there and it fit like a glove. So if anyone else out there is wondering if their round shoulder Epiphone will fit snugly in this case, rest assured it will!!!

Purchased the case to house my new Epiphone Hummingbird Pro. The guitar fits the case nicely. However, the first case I received in an open box was damaged and had very poor quality. The covering was not fastened in the radiuses of the case and the binding was not glued down next the cases handle. Contact Customer service for a return authorization. Customer Service was very helpful and I sent the case back the following day. The Case arrived at the warehouse and it took three calls and 10 working days for the warehouse to inspect the damage and poor quality before a replacement could be sent. The follow up calls to Customer Service did not solve the issue until the third call. I rate overall service very poor, as I kept getting excuses that they could not send a replacement until the warehouse inspects the case, although it was received on a Monday morning.
The replacement case arrived and it's quality is average. One of the latches is extremely hard to open due to what appears to be miss alignment of the lid to the body latch. I've decided to keep the case, as its not worth my time and a three week wait to receive a replacement.

Comments about Epiphone EDREAD Dreadnought Hardshell Case:

Ordered this guitar case for my Epiphone Hummingbird guitar and it fits perfectly. The case I received is black with brown trim and brown handle. I am very comfortable using this case for my regular travels...it's a very solid product.

big, sturdy, and kinda heavy

By Dan Nowlan

from Arlington, TX

Comments about Epiphone EDREAD Dreadnought Hardshell Case:

Overall, this is a very nice case, and I recommend it to anyone looking for an Epiphone-branded case. Note that the pic doesn't quite match the case, though. The surface is actually quite smooth, not dimpled/textured, and the trim on the edge of the lid is tan, which is a little weird. At any rate, it has/does everything you'd expect in a hardshell case. It seems to be very well constructed, and the inside is a grey and plushy, yet fits surprisingly snugly. In fact, it's tight enough that I worry a little about the electronics (knobs, slides, etc.) that stick out from the side of the body. The storage comparment is roomy enough for several CDs, capos, pick holders, strings, whatever. My only complaint is that it's a bit heavy.

Very Nice Case

By John Schilstra

from Hawthorne, NJ

Comments about Epiphone EDREAD Dreadnought Hardshell Case:

This case fits my Epi Hummingbird and Masterbilt DR-500mce great. Got a lot of compliments on the beautiful case with the brown edging and brass hardware. The interior is very soft, and holds the guitar very snug. Well worth the money and looks great just around the house.

      Comments about Epiphone EDREAD Dreadnought Hardshell Case:

      Very happy with this purchase. I needed to find a case for my Epiphone PR-150, which I had also purchased at GC a few weeks prior. I couldn't pin down which would be best, as there is little info available for that on the web, but since the 150 is a Dreadnought and in the same style as the DR-100, I decided to give this a try. I have my eye on one a future purchase that would fit it anyway. Luckily for me, while perusing the GC Website, the case dropped in price to make it totally justifiable, and I ordered right away.

      I knew when I bought my new guitar that I wanted a hard case, and I almost went for cheaper options until my wife looked over some of the ones I was considering and suggested this one looked best. And of course, she was write. It's a very presentable box that is almost nicer than the guitar itself. Nice looking and adds a great presence to the room. Fits the guitar like a glove - and will be perfect for my future purchase - or I may just have to get another. Definitely worth the price. For someone who spent his lifetime toting a beat up, ratty old guitar case or (eventually) nylon gig bags, this one is luxurious.

      Only drawback for me is the size and weight. This is one hefty case - which is good because it is sturdy and protective. But it is not something I would see myself lugging about the city. Definitely strong enough protection for storage and transportation. Still, that said, I would definitely order another one to protect a future purchase.

      Fits my Masterbilt AJ-500M PERFECTLY. No movement at all. This is not the correct picture, as previous reviewer wrote edges are brown / tan which isn't very attractive. Heavy!

      Nice Case

      By Tony

      from Dayton Ohio

      Comments about Epiphone EDREAD Dreadnought Hardshell Case:

      i have had my case for a couple of weeks now. this is the perfect case for my epiphone hummingbird. the fit is nice and the inside grey color sets off the bright colors on the guitar. it has a deep storage area i loaded with a set of strings, slide, capo, pick case, cleaning rag and a big honking strap. it is quite a capable dreadnaught case. like the others have mentioned, the case looks attractive being black with brown accents. my only concern is with the handle brackets. i tend to handle cases roughly, so i am afraid i may break them. they look thin, but time will tell. best of all...my sobbish friends think it looks cool!

      Solid case

      By Brad Phillips

      from Kalamazoo, MI

      Comments about Epiphone EDREAD Dreadnought Hardshell Case:

      Fits a dr-500mce pretty well. even has a little cutout in the side so the electronics fit. plush interior so no worries about scratches. good sized compartment for extra strings, capo, tuner ect. About 4 inches of space between the headstock and the top of the case but that's not a big deal. I've already written more than is necessary... it's a good case and it'll protect my guitar.

      Great case

      By simon birt

      from Orlando, Florida

      Comments about Epiphone EDREAD Dreadnought Hardshell Case:

      Bought this to protect my acoustic from the US to Europe. No problems. It travels well. It did a good job of protecting my guitar, which is what it is supposed to do. It's nicely made with a decent size box Inside for storing leads, picks etc. Plenty of space around the guitar for a strap or other items without them moving around and scratching the finish. Overall good case for the money.

      Perfect Fit

      By CHARLIE MEDALIE

      from Centennial, CO

      Comments about Epiphone EDREAD Dreadnought Hardshell Case:

      This case is a bit heavy, but will protect your axe very well. The guitar fits it like a hand-in-glove: snug. The plush lining is also generous, and there's plenty of room for accessories. The handle is beefy, and should hold up well over time. I defiitely recommend getting this to keep your guitar safe from the elements and inadvertant collisions.

      This is a very nice hard shell case. I feel very confident that my new guitar (yes, it is an Epiphone--how did you guess?) will be safe when I'm traveling. Besides that, it's a darn good lookin' piece of furniture!

        Comments about Epiphone EDREAD Dreadnought Hardshell Case:

        This is the second one I am returning. I bought it to protect my Masterbilt DR500MCE. Masterbilt is spelled correctly. I am right handed, and if I held the case like a guitar, the upper rear bout of the case fails to close all of the way. The latches are not placed properly when they are manufactured. It is like that up top too, but not as bad. I can get a well known good brand hard plastic shell case for the same price at Guitar Center. It is too bad because it is a nice looking case, especially for a throwback guitar like the Epiphone Masterbilt. It nullifies using a good humidification system.

        Comments about Epiphone EDREAD Dreadnought Hardshell Case:

        Bought this case to go with my Epiphone Hummingbird Pro. A much better fit than a Roadrunner dreadnought case I tried. Gently cradles the guitar without being tight. By my experience, this would make a good case for anyone with a dreadnought Epiphone. Economical yet good protection.

            I don't have it anymore because I traded it in with my Epiphone Dove Pro toward the purchase of a new guitar, but it is a perfect fit for my Dove Pro with no play in it all. Not to mention the affordability of it, too. Highly recommended.
