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.

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.

Great case

By Kurt

from Minnesota

Comments about Epiphone Emperor Hardshell Guitar Case:

After looking at a lot of options for my Epiphone DOT Studio, I chose this case because with it's greater depth of 5" I can actually put my effects pedal under the body of the guitar (with a pad over it to protect the guitar finish). The price is right, and the fit is great. I love my guitar, and this case keeps it protected, even in the harsh Minnesota winter.

Epiphone Emperor hardshell case

By Robert Roth

from Elgin IL

Comments about Epiphone Emperor Hardshell Guitar Case:

Great case for the money. What the internet descriptions don't tell you is that it will fit the Epiphone ES-175 like a glove. In fact the ES-175 is usually pictured in this case. I like the styling of this case better than the Epiphone case that is designed for the ES-175 (which GC doesn't stock). Don't know why Epiphone came up with a separate case for the ES-175, when the Emperor case fits it perfectly and the price is the same. GC stocks the Emperor case.

By DOUG CRABTREE

Comments about Epiphone Emperor Hardshell Guitar Case:

They should tell you that it fits this guitar perfectly.I looked at the case that is made for the ES-175 and this is a much better case for the same price.Very well constructed and should last for years!!! Just wanted everyone to know if you need a case for the 175 this is it and what a great guitar to put in it as well!

Bought This For The Swingster

By Tom Franceschi

from Tracy, CA

Comments about Epiphone Emperor Hardshell Guitar Case:

This is the case that Guitar Center and Epiphone recommend for the Swinger. The problem I had at first was that when you shut the case, the top pushed down pretty hard on the Bigsby Arm. To solve that problem you must do two things. The first is to swing the arm around so it points opposite of the headstock. The second is that you must loosen the two little allen screws and slide the hand about one half inch inwards. Do this and the top clears the bar, just barely but it works. A nice case for the money. Works great now for my Swingster but the fit is tight but thats no problem for me.

Comments about Epiphone Emperor Hardshell Guitar Case:

This is one of the nicest cases for the money I've ever seen. It fits the guitar like a glove and is built like Fort Knox. I'm very impressed and would have paid more for a case of this quality. I don't really like buying things sight unseen but in this case (no pun intended)it worked out great!

        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.

        Good solid case

        By Mark

        from Knoxville, Tennessee

        Comments about Epiphone Emperor Hardshell Guitar Case:

        This is a good solid case. It is not as cosmetically attractive on the outside as Epiphone cases were 4 or 5 years ago, but it is just as well built. The Joe Pass Emperor II fits snugly and is well protected. Nice interior lining and storage compartment under neck. The handle is well-placed and comfortable for balanced carrying. I would rate this a 5 but for the somewhat unattractive seam in the outer covering material on the top of the neck area of the case.

        Safe and Secure

        By John

        from Denver, CO

        Comments about Epiphone Emperor Hardshell Guitar Case:

        Finally, my Emperor hard shell case arrived. It is beautifully crafted, like it's custom made. The case is a little tight (due to the cushioning), very plush inside with lots of latches and a lock. The case is strong and it really secures my axe. No looseness at all. I know my guitar is secure and protected. It was worth the wait. JL

        PERFECT CASE FOR THE Epi. SWINGSTER

        By Brian Moore

        from Upstate NY

        Comments about Epiphone Emperor Hardshell Guitar Case:

        I've read a lot of reviews, and checked forums and spoke with Sweet Water and Guitar Center, looking for a case for my swingster. and THIS IS THE PERFECT CASE. There is ZERO problem with it pushing down hard on the Bigsby. Does it push on it? YES. But Every guitar I own with a Bigsby (Les Paul, 339, Swingster) has this happen. It loosens the tension on the neck, it's a positive. The case is perfectly tight and snug. It closes AND latches with ease. You will NOT have to loosen any part of the Bigsby arm, or swing it down the body of the guitar. Buy the case. Put the Guitar in it. Watch the lid close perfectly with no force. Rest assured, you Swingster is safe here.

            Comments about Epiphone Emperor Hardshell Guitar Case:

            It was extremely frustrating trying to find a case locally that properly fit my Epiphone ES-175 Premium. Found one 'used' at a signicantly reduced price on the website, had it shipped to a Vermont Guitar Center and picked it up - all within a week. I wasn't concerned with the couple of scratches it was claimed to have. Fits my guitar perfect. Very satisfied customer.

                  The case has nice covering and nice interior and provides plenty of protection for the guitar. The top however does not line up with the bottom so it has to be manipulated to engage the latches.

                  Seems to be a sturdy case for a good guitar, some minor finish flaws, scrubby marks on the Tolex that looks like it's been squeezed or rubbed against something, small blue-ish colored blobs of junk that looks like glue. No major problems that would require getting it replaced.
