My Gibson bfg fits perfectly in this case. Nice interior lining over firm padding. Perfect for rough air travel or any rough handling. The spring loaded latches seem like and odd choice to me. You'd think they would pop open easily. I've tested it a bit (tossing it around) and they seem to hold. I will, of course, being putting additional straps on when I fly in a few months. It is big case, nearly the size of a regular acoustic case. It feels a little weird putting my tiny little Les Paul in it. The case arrived with only one minor flaw in the exterior that doesn't impact it's function. It's not "waterproof" but it will definitely keep your guitar dry if you get caught in a downpour. It is NOT an archtop case. That's the only improvement I would suggest to Gator.

Overall... it didn't fit, what else can I say?
Has the features I'd want in a case, though in my case, my front and back bound Les Paul didn't fit at all. It's a Les Paul custom with front and back binding on the body, but the dimensions are the exact same as any other Les Paul. The neck wouldn't sit properly and the body itself would not fit in the space allotted. I was able to close the case, but with the neck not even touching the support it didn't seem safe to keep the guitar in there, not at all. Obviously this thing is working for some folks, but not for me. I got mine from another online retailer and sent it back the same day.
The molded outer body seems pretty sturdy, but the inside had almost no padding. The little flip up door to stow away accessories is basically just cardboard. Overall i was disappointed with the case and it's build quality, not to mention
I've had nicer cases that cost a bit less than this. If the guitar fit I probably would have kept it, but I wasn't thrilled with the cost to value ratio.

          Tried to put my PRS Singlecut in it. Doesn't fit too well. The back/bottom of the body leaves a large gap between the case and the guitar. Would probably fit a Les Paul perfectly.

              I have two Les Pauls and a JTV-59 and this case fits them perfectly. I have been using LP case which was always fine but did not seem like it would take substantial drop well. His Gator case is very rigid with a molded foam covered in velvet interior which holds the guitar very snug. The interior color is kind of pinkish and is not my favorite but can live with based on the durability of the case. If you have a JTV-59 or Les Paul don't hesitate to pick this up.

              SEEMS THEY ARE MAKING THESE WITH CHEAPER MATERIALS AND/OR QUICKER LABOR TIME. I DO NOT KNOW IF THEY CHANGED MATERIALS OR THE MOLD, BUT THE INTERIOR IS NOT THE SAME BUILD QUALITY AS MY FIRST TWO I BOUGHT HERE. THE OUTER SHELL IS THE SAME - VERY GOOD QUALITY AND KEEPS AXES SAFE.

                Some confusion over getting a case that fits my Ibanez ARZ IR27. An SKB universal was referred by an MF associate and was too small. Returning was easy enough and the Gator works perfectly. Nice solid case.

                  I BOUGHT THIS FOR MY LP 70S TRIBUTE, FIT PERFECTLY. THESE CASES ARE VERY TOUGH AND THIGHT; THEY CUSHION AND CLOSE OVER THE LP CARVED TOP MODELS PERFECTLY. DON'T TRY TO USE THEM FOR A FLAT SLAB LP SPECIAL OR SMALLER OR THINNER LP TYPES - IT WOULD BE TOO DEEP FOR THE NECK TO SEAT RIGHT.

                    Bought a couple of these for my PRS SE 245's at my local retailer, had trouble finding any information online as to what cases actually fit that guitar, even the PRS Hard shell cases people say don't fit them so figured I would say that this does actually fit them.

                    Seems like a great solid case too, haven't had it long enough to say for sure though...

                    I scooped up an all-original '71-'73 Ibanez 2350 Les Paul copy. The guitar is sick!! The original case was like cardboard protection, so an upgrade was needed. Unfortunately, the way the guitar sits, the neck doesn't contact the case 's neck support. I have to place a folded sock under the body to bring the neck down. May send it back, as the sock thing is not ideal.

                      I got this amp for my ESP LTD-1000. I was going to get an ESP case, but luckily they were sold out. I say luckily because I have seen the ESP case and compared it to the Gator. The Gator case is superior in every way. Beyond the great color of the inside that makes my Amber Sunburst pop, their attention to detail is what gets me. The cutaway for the pickup toggle takes the cake. All-in-all, a great case.

                        Only the second time I've ordered from Musicians Friend but, the service has been great so far. I chose the free shipping and received my order in only 4 days! Case was double boxed and in a plastic bag. It could not have been packaged better. I also own a Roadrunner hardshell case and the Gator case is slightly better in overall quality - especioally the latches. When I put my LP in the case, I think I heard it say "Ahhhhhh"! Very nice fit and if I were a Les Paul, this case is where I would want to be. I will probably buy more gear from Gator and for sure from Musicians Friend. Just wish Gator would bring their manufacturing back to the USA.
