My father gave me his 1956 Gibson J-50, which is the single most sentimental thing I own (material). The case, which was not a Gibson but original with the guitar when purchased in '56, had pretty much fallen apart. I decided to purchase this Gibson case and I could not be happier.

The fit and finish of the case is perfect (no bubbles in vinyl, the latches are nice and tight -- none are loose, well padded etc.). The interior is BLACK, not blue as you see in the pic. Not sure why MF or GC does not update it. I prefer the black, it looks very nice. This case fits the slope shoulder perfectly and as you can hopefully see in the pick, there is great padding all around, including the waist of the guitar. Additionally, one thing I was happy to see is nice padding for the back upper bout so that the guitar flush in the case and there is no space.

I really have no complaints on this case at all. The only thing I would change (and you can see this in the pic) is the very thin 4 inch piece of fabric keeping the case lid from falling back. There could be a little more support with thicker fabric and even a piece around the neck area of the case. Also, when you close the case it tends to stick out, so you have to consciously nudge that piece in when you close. This is not a deal breaker and it's actually an easy thing to add another one.

Another big "plus" I wanted to mention is the double neck support on either side of the case accessory compartment (or whatever you call it). Anyway, I would highly recommend this case for any slope shouldered Gibson. I tested my Dove in it and it also fit just as well as the J-50, even though it's square shouldered. But the padding of the case nicely hugs the slope shoulders of the guitar.

                    Case perfectly surrounds a J-45. Case is not very sturdy, and the latches are easily opened without being touched. Also, the interior is black and not as shown.

                    This is a Canadian-made case that is a perfect fit for a J-45, and it perfectly fits my vintage j-45 so I see that Gibson has been consistent with the size specs over the years. It probably wouldn't work with those late-sixties square shoulder j-45's though. It is a nice case and it looks nice, but for the price, I have certainly seen sturdier cases. It feels a little cheap, but time will tell. Overall I am happy with it because it is a perfect fit to my guitar. By the way, the interior is now black furry carpet, not blue. I like the black.

                      Came across a 1964 J -45 that had been sitting in a cardboard case for years. Once the guitar was serviced, this case was just the ticket. It came faster than expected. I did pay for the Gibson name but it is a special guitar and having the Gibson case topped it off.
