My strat and tele fit very snuggly. The latches are of a much higher quality than the cheaper models and the metal feet (bottom and side) seem to be very durable. This is a much more well balanced case than the SKB cases that come with the USA strats. Doesn't "dip" down nearly as much. Nice sized inner compartment for your portable tuner, picks, cords and music. Cradles the neck very well and seems to hold my guitars so that they don't move around inside when handling. Spend the extra coin over the cheaper models.

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.

      This a nice case with padded soft lining. Well made with good hinges and clasps. It fit my Schecter electric guitar exactly with no space to spare. Nice large storage compartment. Recommended.

          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.

            This case is roomy, easy to use, and very sturdy. I recommend it to all my fellow musicians. It has a very large storage compartment, that is big enough for a set list, strings, picks,strap, you name it! Buy this case, you will not regret your purchase.

                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.
