I got this case for my B.C. Rich Mockingbird. I knew it would be a tight fit. Crushing the foam at the body corners it's a very nice tight fit, was less than 2/3 the price of the B.C. Rich case, and I believe, offers better protection and more durability than the B.C. Rich case. The latches are one hand easy open and close. The carry handle thick, strong, and feels good in the hand. Great case at a great price.

I was looking for an ATA rated case for a Fender Strat to take with me on business trips, and was very attracted to the features and price of this model. I received the item fast, and was initially very impressed with the quality, especially for the price. At the end of the day, it was a good case - fit the guitar well but not completely snug, the locks were secure, and the exterior case was solid. However, after traveling with it I experienced two separate problems. #1, the TSA at two airports were unable to open the lock with their master keys. This made the case virtually useless for checked air travel, but might have been an isolated issue with the lock I received. #2, after the third flight of checking the guitar, the case was still in top shape, but the guitar was damaged in the bottom corner of the base. Bottom line, if you choose this case for air travel I recommend you try to carry on with it and gate claim if you absolutely have to check. The case and locks should be ok for this. If you are shipping or traveling often, this might not be as durable as you will want to protect your guitar. GC was very good about returning the case for me and exchanging because of the TSA locking issue, so kudos to them. Again, the case seemed better than expected for the price, however it is clearly not to the same level of quality as some of the more expensive cases on the market. My needs required a $300 case which is the investment I needed to make. Should you need this for light travel, perhaps this case will suffice. Definitely make sure you stuff the bottom and top with foam to ensure the guitar does not move at all if you are taking on an airline.

      Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Electric Guitar Case:

      This is my third GATOR TSA case; dreadnaught, 335-style. Each is nearly MILSPEC touch with excellent TSA level latches/lock that will probably survive the ill-mannered handling of airline baggage handlers.

          Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Electric Guitar Case:

          I bough my guitar a couple days before getting this case. I explained that I need a travel case that is tough enough to handle Bag handlers at the airport. We guitar players know how much we value our guitars and we know how handlers love to throw things around. This case was put to the test immediately flying to Philadelphia. I opened the case and my guitar was just how I placed it....I recommend to all this is the case to use when getting on a plane. It will keep your guitar safe and sound....

              Purchased as ATA, TSA approved. A sturdy, well made and largely secure case but one latch did not survive determined baggage handlers on a trip from Texas to Australia. Taping over of non-locking latches is recommended for air travel.

              Great case for my Charvel Skatecaster. Fits just fine but could stand more room to accommodate the strap still on the guitar.

                  this case is too slim for a les paul by about 1 1/2". now with that being said mf did ask if I wanted another case I said no because it worked fine for my tele that I had. but if your looking for a good case to put your les paul in (or copy like an eppy) this is not the case. I have other gator cases that are great but this case is just miss sized...plz save your time

                    "Find A Case" listed this case as fitting the Danelectro electric 12-string (fine guitar) The guitar is a little too big for the case. The case seemed fine otherwise,but not a match for that particular guitar. I found a Roadrunner canvas case that fits that guitar perfectly. Musician's Friend rep was very considerate and all costs were covered in returning and refund. Thank you.

                      This case is made of fine materias. I would trust it to handle a rough ride. I am using it for a Stratocaster Deluxe. The guitar fits perfectly, much better than the original case. It is also a perfect fit for my Fender FSR Standard Tele.
