Great case its durable, its looks great, the gold colored hinges and clamps match my epiphone's accessories. the case is solid and fits my explorer in nicely. the fur coated inside is soft and doesnt scratch or smudge the guitar an amazing buy, BUT when pared with the explorer an already heavy guitar, this case when carrying guitar is brutally heavy and takes a little while to get used to. but hey thats what you wanted when you bought your explorer right?

The handle assembly is junk. The case itself is not too bad - but the handle on my case held up for about a month. First, one of the rivets that attach the plastic handle to the metal bracket came lose. I replaced these with a small bolt. Then the actual metal atted to the case came loose from the case.

    Comments about Epiphone Explorer Hardshell Case:

    Overall the case is very nice. The inside compartment lid is a little sloppy feeling. The Epiphone 58 Korina Explorer fits very snug so it will not shift. I did get a great price when purchased and well worth it.

        Comments about Epiphone Explorer Hardshell Case:

        For the money this case cannot be beat. Is it as good as a Gibson case? No, but it is 1/4 of the price. Lid is a little flimsy but it is lined very well and most of the case is pretty solid construction. Probably would not last during heavy touring but for home use and taking out for occasional gigs it will be fine. Bottom line, if you need an explorer case that gets the job done for a decent price, buy it!

            I got this for my 58 goth explorer with a Dimebucker. When I got it I thought that it was huge compared to other guitar cases. Its kind of bulky but it keeps my guitar protected and safe. The inner lining is a nice soft fuzzy material and the storage box inside can hold more then you can imagine. good price for a great case

                Comments about Epiphone Explorer Hardshell Case:

                Needed a case for my 2016 Gibson Explorer. There's no way my Explorer was going to survive all the rigors of gigging and back and forth to rehearsal in the flimsy gigbag Gibson provided. I couldn't afford any of the other cases which are around double the price, so I picked up the Epiphone case. It's well built, the guitar fits snugly, and it will protect it when bouncing around in the car or shoved in the corner at a gig. The only part that feels somewhat on the flimsy side would be the handle, but I think it will hold up well enough. Very good value for the money, as far as I'm concerned.

                  I am using this case for my '58 epiphone explorer reissue and it fits like a glove. The case is of very high quality and has tons of storage for extra accessories.

                          This is a solid case. Works just as it should. After my band got into a bad car accident, I decided I needed to invest in some better protection, and I am very happy to know that my Gibson is safe and sound in this case.

                          This is overall a great case. Nice plushy lining, outside covered in Tolex, solid construction, a HUGE accessory compartment inside and a lockable clasp. The only thing that may concern me in the future is the handle assembly; it seems a little flimsy. Time will tell I guess. Oh... there was mention on a previous review that this case does not fit the Epiphone Goth Explorer... well that's completely false! This case fits the Epiphone Goth explorer perfectly. MF even shipped mine in this case when I ordered them together.
