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 bought this for my son for Christmas. I understand that it is the only case a Thunderbird will fit it and therefore GC would not not have it in stock. Thunderbird's are not that popular, so we had to order it. The salesman was great and he took good care of us. Unfortunately when it arrived, it looked like a drunk applied the faux stitching that hides the seam. I debated whether to send it back because I worry that down the road the vinyl will begin to peal, but sending it back is a giant pain, so I am going to keep it. I had a similar situation with a tweed case I bought for my Tele. When it arrived, it had a large dirty smudge on it. My advise is to only buy in stock cases at GC so you can inspect them. The quality control from these imports is pretty weak.

Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Hardshell Case:

This Thunderbird bass case is much superior to the original case, which was a wooden box with a lousy handle. This case is smaller and of better quality.

          Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Hardshell Case:

          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

                          Don't waste your time trying to get a used or generic case if you have a T-Bird that needs a home. The headstock is pretty long and with her body shape, those curves need the case that was made to hold them :) The compartment has plenty of room for any extra stuff too. I absolutely love my new case - great case with a great price!

                          For a hundred bucks not bad. The case lid is a little flimsy though when open. The skin doesn't appear to be very tough. Mine actually came with a small tear on the lid just above the bottom hinge. The latches don't close real tight and could easily be pulled open accidently. At least there are three latches. The interior is pretty cool. Huge storage and molded to fit the thunderbird body nice and snug. I wouldn't through a bunch of gear on top of this case as it would not take the beating very well and would give under the weight of all the gear stacked on top. Place it on top of the pile for sure and keep an eye on the latches when handling. Otherwise it will provide good protection for your bass guitar.
