I have a tele that has long been my pride and joy, and only recently did I decide to spring for one of these quality Fender cases. I wish I had joined that club years ago... The build quality, fit, and finish of these cases well justify the price. The black tweed/black plush makes a quality frame for the art that is my tele's cherry sunburst. (And there are great color options for every taste.) Unfortunately, the first case that was shipped to me had some flaws in the exterior stitching... Not sure why that got through Fender's quality control, but GC quickly replaced the problem case and I'm very pleased. A quality case is well worth the peace of mind over your instrumental investment.

I ordered this case for my Tele and I had it shipped to my local GC. I'm glad I opened it there. I sent it right back !! One of the latch plates was installed crooked and there was a hole on this case too. Like it had been center punched with a large nail. The so-called plush interior was closer to the Pro model. The exterior end pieces were not as thick as they used to be. I'll be better off with a molded case. It's not a cheap priced case, I might just get a used tolex case somewhere else.

Beautiful Case for a Beautiful Strat/Tele

By avrocker1

from Apple Valley, MN

Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

I bought the black case with the blue plush interior, and it is very nice looking. It also keeps the guitar safe for the most part, but the case isn't perfectly fitted to the base of the strat of tele, so the guitar moves around a little bit from side to side, near the body. Otherwise, the case is very nice; it also has a huge compartment case where you can fit picks, a guitar strap, guitar strings, and maybe even a small effects pedal or tuner.

Classic Case

By Bob Trice

from Rockwell, Nc

Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

This case is at the top of the food chain of cases. I built a custom strat copy and wanted the best case money could buy. I spent over $1200 just for the parts and was not about to trust it to some cheapo box. This is the way to go!!. Nice liner with a large compartment and leather snap to hold it down, locking latch and a comfortable handle. It may be a few dollars more than some so-called cases, but it is well worth the investment!!

Fender Strat Plush Blue Case

By Dennis Redding

from Laflin Pa

Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

I love the case, it is well made and the plush blue interior has no rival. It took a bit longer than anticipated to arrive but it did get here before Christmas. I have found though that it is actually better to order online as opposed to going to "Guitar Center" because other than instruments they lack inventory. They had nothing of what I was looking for in the store but you would never know that from their advertisments.

Two Generations and then 3

By Old Dog

from St. Louis

Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

My dad uses these cases! Every Fender he still has is in a Fender case. They are beat up, and battle scarred, but they don't EVER let down their precious charges inside. If you owned a vintage instrument you would be responsible with its care too! Dad and I will never use anything less than a Fender case for the instruments we love. My boys probably won't either. If you are willing to spend good money for a good insrument then ensure its protection in a good case. These are old school cases that cary respect. Dad needs to know that his son will take care of his gear when the time comes. You can't take 'em with you but you can pass 'em on.

Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

Nothing can compliment your Strat or Tele better than an original Fender Hardshell Case. I bought the tweed for that vintage look. Excellently made with sturdy materials and worth every cent I paid! Now my Strat sleeps in the best!

Classic Case

By buddha

from The Woodlands, TX

Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

I bought the tweed case for my Strat, its a classic case like the ones used in the sixties.The Fender Start/Tele Case is very protective but the case allows the guitar to move a little bit inside. The Compartment is big enough to hold a guitar strap, guitar strings, some picks, polishing cloth, and a tuner. Bottom line: A very nice looking case that protects your guitar and has nice features.

Looks aren't everything!

By Spanky Linn

from Wichita, KS

Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

I bought the tweed case with red interior to protect my new Telecaster and was greatly disappointed to find that the ends of the stitching were loose. The second time I picked this case up with my new guitar in it, one end of the handle came loose and I almost dropped it! Not what I expected from a case made in the USA.

Disapointing

By Manny G.

from CA.

Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

Very poor quality standards. Latches don't line up properly, and overall construction is questionable. For fender to put their name on this is sad. And to top it all off the price is not cheap.

Looks nice..

By Zackbrown

from New York

Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

This case came with my '62 strat reissue. At first I loved it, but its not very durable. One of the locks fell off after only a year of having it. It would almost be understandable if i used it much more then I actually did. This case looks rad, I just wish it was more durable.

      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.

      Best Uses

        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.

            Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

            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.

              Best Uses

                Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

                I bought this case for my Telecaster, since it is supposed to work for both Teles and Strats. First off, one of the locking latches did not work. Second, the Tele did not fit properly. The neck does not sit in the neck cradle, and the exterior walls of the case are too narrow for the body. The padding on the exterior walls (inside the case) do not give at all. If they did the guitar could be adjusted and fit much more snuggly. The fact that this is one of Fender's top-end cases is unbelievable. If you have a Tele, DO NOT get this case. I can't speak for the fit of the Strat. I called Fender's customer support, but I am sure my complaint will fall on deaf ears.

                A great hardcase for the Fender

                By Bobo

                from New York

                Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

                This case holds everything with its huge accesory compartment (bigger than all of the other cases compartments I saw). It holds my huge tuner, my strap and string packs with lots of room to spare. And it protects the guitar well with its hard exterior and padded interior. (also, it has a key, but I didnt get one of those, as it was used). Also, it is counterbalanced for the guitar perfectly, so when you have your guitar in the case, it will be flat in your hand. It wont rise up or down like some other cases of similar build. The only downside is that it can be heavy, but thats no matter when you consider that this is a case built in the USA for the premium fenders. Also, I might add, it looks really cool with its ultrasoft colored lining interior and "breifcase" exterior. It's almost like a display case for your guitar along with a shield. Highly recommend for anyone in the market for a good fender hardcase.

                Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

                This Beautiful case was an upgrade to the form-fitting case that came with my new Am. Strat Deluxe guitar. There is ample room inside the case for accessories such as a 30 foot coiled guitar cord, tuner,extra strings, winder and strap. There is room for the back body strap-lock in the case w/o removing the strap from the instrument. Tho a bit pricey, you get what you pay for. Your fender will feel right at home in this case...

                Worth the Extra Bucks

                By William Gray

                from Portland, OR

                Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

                I don't buy stuff just because it has a well known logo on it. When I paid the extra money for the Fender tweed case, it was in the hope that it was truly a higher quality product. Well, turns out, it is a fantastic guitar case. Really deluxe in the true sense of the word. And it seems solid as a rock. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I haven't had it long enough to know how it will hold up. But I'm confident I'll still be using this case 20 years from now. It just seems totally well built and the tweed is pretty tough. As it gets the unavoidable scuffs and dings, it's just going to look even more vintage. Highly recommend this case over the cheaper imitations.
