This is the case that houses an Epiphone Jazz guitar of mine, worth over a grand. It's very reliable. By that I mean, the locks stay locked and the cushion does it's job by protecting the finish and body of my guitar. Not only all of that, but it's a reasonable price. Buy one and you won't have any regrets.

Unfortunately, not a quality product for the money. I had the same problem with my Epiphone Sorrento case that came with that guitar. The flexibility of the Tolex, i.e. plastic, doesn't allow for a consistent top to bottom fit, and leaves the main center latch without enough tension to secure firmly. If the design had eliminated the integrated lock, which came with only one key and doesn't work anyway, and used a passive loop for a padlock, at least that would have given you an actual security option.
The case does work for storage and protection, but don't hand it off to a roadie!
I'm keeping the case because I don't like returning stuff, and it does offer enough protection for my current needs, and it does "fit".
But if I had it to do over again, I'd look at other options.
By the way, the Epiphone ES-175 Premium I got from MF recently IS a lovely guitar!

      This case works perfect for my 2014 Epiphone ES-175 Premium. Guitar Center's description should include the Epiphone part number - which is 940-EEMCS. Case has a very nice gray plush interior and a compartment to store some accessories. The case is fine for protection and storage.

      Pretty decent case. Fit the 295 like a glove. Very generous padding throughout.

                  Latches did not line up -- took a little finesse to get them fasten.

                    This Epiphone case exceeded my expectations by a wide margin! The quality is not just "good" - it is amazing.I have six guitar cases, and the fit and finish of this one is almost breath-taking.

                    lack of value

                    from Shenandoah Valley

                    Comments about Epiphone Emperor Hardshell Guitar Case:

                    The issue over at what price point a guitar includes a hardshell case is I am sure a bone of contention. It certainly is for me - a guitar player for 31 years I have watched this be an easy way for guitar manufacturers to put more money in their pockets. Putting that gripe aside - when I pay extra for a hardshell case, I expect to get a high quality case. This case is not at all high quality. It's cheaply made - I get the feeling that the clasps are not very durable, and the materials used both outside and inside are cheap.

                    the good news - my Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor II Pro fits perfectly. the bad news, I don't have confidence that long term this will hold up. Epiphone seems to me to value profit above just about anything else about their instruments, and this case fits that profile.

                      The price is right. The Joe Pass Epi fits very well and case liner is fine. Not Gibson quality but not a cheap chipboard case either.
