MusiciansFriend had a great sale on these G&G cases and I was really excited when I received my order. However, the case turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. Don't get me wrong, it's still a beautiful, sturdy and protective case. But as a couple of other reviewers have noted, attention to detail - the hallmark of a great manufacturing company, American or otherwise - is just not there.

First, and immediately most noticeable, the case is bigger. I know this because I own an immaculate 2004 tweed G&G case. This new case, a brown tolex model, is almost a half inch thicker. Consequently, it is also slightly heavier.

Second, the lock and clasp fittings look like cheap imitations compared to the 2004 case. On closer inspection, the locks on the 2004 model have "Cheney England" marks inside. The new ones are unmarked. I've since found that Cheney Locks of England no longer exists.

Third, and most troubling, is the sloppy detail work. Mine is not as bad as a few reviewers here have described, but still does not bear close inspection. This is a sad development for an iconic American manufacturer much loved and a big part of Fender's history making legacy.

I would still recommend these G&G cases over the Vietnam made cases that Fender sells under its Pro Series line. But only at the sale prices that MusiciansFriend has made them available.

G&G Fender Cases - Ghosts of Quality Long Past

Maybe in its heyday these were THE cases to have. I bought one of their nice looking Fender branded tweed cases to protect a nice Strat I am lucky to own, and was shocked at the poor workmanship (studs not hammered in all the way, crooked name plates, pieces bent out of shape, etc.,).
I contacted G&G via email to let them know of my concerns regarding the poor quality. (I offered them an "out" thinking perhaps my case had been assebled poorly by Fender as a partner.) I heard nothing from them for weeks.When they finally responded, their correspondence was NOT very well written, in terms of professionalism, tone of customer service, or grammar; I felt like I was getting mobile texts from a teenage girl.I was basically asked to prove and provide photographic evidence. I did so gladly.Without any apology, G&G offered to replace my case, but they insisted that I pay for boxing it up and shipping it across the country to them. These are quite large and heavy pieces and it's not worth my time and money, as a mere average consumer, to ship it at a cost much higher than what a large company can afford to do. I suspect that they know this very well.It's a shame really that a USA company is taking this approach to "quality control" and customer satisfaction. Cheaper foreign imports are unfortunately improving their quality (and customer relations) to the point where it's hard to argue "Buy USA," especially if the quality of product and sevice is as poor as I've experienced. I recently bought some imported German guitar strings and the owner himself corresponded with me when I had a few break on me - sending me replacements for free all the way from Europe.This classic company may not last much longer if this is the trend. Very sad.

      It is a great case. We bought a telecaster, and this fits it perfectly. The inside is nicely lined with a soft material, and it seems very durable. High quality.

        This case is exactly what I was looking for and I'm very pleased with my delivered product. The inside is a nice plush, the storage compartment locks with a snap button. It's a very classy case.

            Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

            I loved these cases until I purchased this last one. The case looks nice enough and the same as other G & G cases but to me is not the same quality as previous cases. I have 3 other G & G cases and they are great so I decided to get this one. This case however is lighter than previous ones and more flimsy like a cheaper guitar case. The neck support is loose, the padding is thinner as is the interior liner. Not sure about the latches, they look the same but they don't have a stamp on the inside like the other ones. Time will tell. I'm going to keep it because I don't want the hassle of returning it to GC and I'm just using it to store my guitar in, but I probably won't buy another one unless I can see an improvement in the quality.

                It was the Fender Tweed for me. Great value, very well made, and the vintage vibe to boot. Now my Harrison rosewood tele has a worthy resting place. Thanks Much MF.

                  Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

                  Case looks nice (I bought the brown tolex version). Latches are adequate, but one already needs to be pushed in and out manually--the spring won't disengage it (after only a couple of dozen times). The biggest issue for me is that headstock cushion in not pre-fitted. As a result, the guitar neck doesn't reach the neck support. You have to carefully push the headstock into the stiff cushion in order to get the neck to seat properly. When you do, it forces your high E string out of tune. Maybe I'm being petty, but this is an aggravation. Eventually I will remove the headstock cushion and cut it down to fit properly, but I'm still in "why-should-I-have-to-do-this-on-a-brand new-case?" mode. Fits neither Strat nor Tele without modification.

                          This brown case is what should have come with my GC FSR Strat but the GC I purchased my Strat from said they didn't no where it was?? They included a standard black. I always wanted this to carry it in so I got it on sale 10 years later.

                              I order the orange interior case for a sunburst guitar that I have. Although the case is quite nice on the outside I'm a little disappointed because the color that is advertised online is not even close to what is in the case. The inside of the case is almost cherry red, won't match the finish on my guitar at all. That's just being picky though, overall it's still a pretty nice case.
