The case is great, seems to be of good quality, and fits my bass perfectly. My only complaint is that it does not look like the case that I purchased. The photos of this case on Guitar Center's website are not photos of the case you will receive if you buy this item. Their photos show a rectangular case with four metal feet (for lack of a better term) on the bottom, the case that arrived is a weird trapezoid shape and only has three of these little metal "feet" on the bottom. Overall, I give Epiphone 5 stars for making a nice case, and Guitar Center "0" stars for not updating their website. What I received in the mail is not what is pictured on their website, that is kind of lame, disappointing, and bad business. But ultimately the differences are cosmetic and the case is very functional.

I have been playing live and doing studio work for over 40 years. I have dozens of guitars and basses and have owned many others over the years. This is, without question, the worst case I have ever owned. I have a hard case for every guitar and bass I own. Some from manufacturer and others from 3rd party vendors. This case is a mess. Flimsy. Interior not aligned properly. Just poor quality. If I get 8-10 uses out of this I will be very surprised. Please stay away from this Epi case and find some other case to purchase. Worst purchase I have ever made from MF. I wish someone had warned me as I am sure for about the same or maybe just a few more sheckels, I could have purchased a solid case. Junk.

              The product you get IS NOT THE SAME OF THE IMAGE. The hardshell case is in "triangle shape" not "rectangle shape" as the picture. When I´ve received I thought it was a wrong delivery. The quality is average, however the lock system is very poor quality, I can´t lock it, the key does not work properly, looks to see very poor quality made in Taiwan, such as a generic case with a Epiphone logo only... not an exclusive product with Epiphone/Gibson quality.

                  This case is one of the most beautiful hardshell cases I've ever seen. While it's a hardshell, it is a softer leather - but still very durable - than the traditional hardshell cases.

                    Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Hardshell Case:

                    This case is not rectangular as shown in the picture; instead, it tapers down to a narrower end by the neck. However, that just gives it a cooler look. The cutout interior is super soft (gray velvet) and extremely well-contoured to the shape of the instrument. There is a roomy pocket under the neck--plenty of space for strap, picks, etc. The case is lightweight but feels very strong and well-made.

                          Excellent fit for my old Orville MIJ -T-Bird. a little smaller and more form fitting than the old Thunderbird cases.Shaped more like the older Musicman cases.

                              The case is great only complaint is on one part for about 10 inches the lid doesn't quite close over the case, but it does still shut and will protect your bass
