Ok, for the price what do you expect? I can't see transporting this case any way other than flat, or on its side with some support like in between other cases, or items to keep it from falling over. I purchased this case for the sole purpose of having a security blanket for a Jackson Adrian Smith SDX which it works perfectly for in the home, this is not an aviation (T.S.A.) travel quality case. If I plan on taking the guitar out of the house, I swap my America Standard Stratocaster molded hard case out, and that gives me the protection I need for transporting either guitar. I also know to lay the case down flat to open/close it as it is somewhat flexible and will not close if not flat. I was actually expecting worse considering some of the reviews I read, but was willing to see what I got for the money. Guitar Center's return policy makes it easy to do just that. The case is one of those 'you get what you pay for' deals, so don't expect $125.00 quality at half the price. A pair of keys were included, and the interior is plush enough, clean and did not have any foul chemical odor. No loose vinyl, or bad stitching. All hardware is securely and properly attached. My Jackson Adrian Smith fits perfectly, and any standard scale Stratocaster style guitar should as well, as long as it does not have a reverse angled headstock. I'm sure Telecaster style guitars will fit just as well too. I was also surprised with the amount of space in the storage compartment. Straps, pedals, accessories, books, etc. will all fit as there is plenty of room. Five stars because I knew what I was buying, and got a little more than I expected for the small amount of money the case costs. If my guitar cost more than $500.00, I would spend more on the case. This was all I needed, so it works for me.

I'll put in with the other reviewers here. The case is a little on the flimsy side, but well-made nonetheless. Decent quality materials, looks good, well-balanced and easy to carry, and all hinges/latches work as advertised. If you're after a light-duty case to keep the dust off your guitar and to keep it from getting knocked around at home, this is your huckleberry. Keep it out of the back of the equipment truck and it will do just fine when it's time to leave the house. Even so, I wouldn't even think about using it for an expensive or well-loved instrument. I bought this case for a G&L Ascari and it wasn't quite deep enough. Not a problem though because it ended up being a perfect fit for a PRS SE Paul Allender (really, almost as if it was designed for this guitar). As it turns out, it is also a near-perfect fit for an Epiphone Nighthawk Custom Reissue. The only difference here is that I put a folded polishing cloth in the neck cradle to give the pitched headstock a little extra clearance. So now I have two of these cases and I would buy a third if I had need of one. Not a bad case for the money and for its intended light-duty use.

        holds my son's junior fender electric but might not hold a full size one as there are only a few inches to spare.

                i actually called the store in glen burnie md. I needed to know if this case would hold a fender stratacoustic. They were fairly sure it would and indeed it did, just barely, but the fit is snug and the guitar is safe.

                Comments about Gator GWE-Elec Hardshell Electric Guitar Case:

                I should have spent a few bucks more for something more substantial. Nothing in particular wrong with this one, but it's definitely not "robust". It's reasonably well made, but a good example of "you get what you pay for." Nevertheless, it does the job for a light-duty protective case.

                      Overall well pleased. Just wanted a basic low cost hard case to protect guitar. That's what I got.
                      FYI. I wouldn't use this case for regular out of house service.
