            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.

            Comments about Epiphone Explorer Hardshell Case:

            I have to agree with all the other reviews. I bought this for my son's EPI Explorer, It holds the body very snug, but, also gives you plenty of room for accessories. Buy this and you will get your money worth. Very Satisfied customer.

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

            By Aedan Hurley

            from Maryland

            Comments about Epiphone Explorer Hardshell Case:

            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!!

            Pretty much perfect...

            By WILLIAM STEPHENS

            Comments about Epiphone Explorer Hardshell Case:

            I ordered this case (#100452882) for a hand made Explorer form factor guitar I just finished building and upon receipt it fit perfectly and snugly. The case had no cosmetic damage and looks great. One thing however, the locking latch don't work, not that it matters to me anyway but if it has a flaw this is it. In some cases the headstock will rest on the floor of the case but with this one the headstock floats a good inch above the floor... basically right where it should be. If you have an Explorer, be it Epiphone, Gibson or hand made to a traditional outline like mine. I highly recommend this case, especially considering the price.

            Comments about Epiphone Explorer Hardshell Case:

            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.

            Comments about Epiphone Explorer Hardshell Case:

            When the box came to my house i was surprised at how big it was. Then i thought, "Maybe its the EMG's i ordered with it". But it was the cases. When i opened it smelled like 100 pairs of leather shoes were stuffed into that case. Other than that i feel that it can protect my guitar through anthing. Just air it out.

            Awesome case, well worth the wait! Very sturdy, the Explorer fits inside like a glove. It is heavy, but I would expect it to be. I know that nothing is going to happen to my axe inside this puppy!
