    This case is awesome. It has everything you need, and nothing you don't want. It's simple and extremely durable, especially the locks on it. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a case that fit most traditional body style guitars (it fits my Ibanez RG, my PRS and my Fender Strat just fine). Great value, very durable.

    Room for Sharp Headstocks!

    By Nick

    from Tempe, Arizona

    Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

    I picked this up because I needed a sturdier case to take my Jackson Soloist on a flight. The SKB was more than large enough to fit (even the pointy headstock had extra room) so I stuffed a couple of polish cloths in there to keep the axe from moving around. No problems. The latches are solid and the handle is comfortable to carry. The case took going through four flights like a champ. Get this for your LTD/ESP, Jackson, or Ibanez, you won't regret it.

    Nice guitar case

    By Hugh

    from USA

    Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

    I needed a guitar case that I could use not only for my new fender strat but one that I could take with me on vacations and trips back home that could survive the plane flight since you usually have to check them as baggage. I think I found the right case. Built tough and even has a TSA lock so I don't have to leave the case open and take a chance of someone tampering with my guitar. For those of you who don't know what a TSA lock is, it is a lock with a code on it which airport security has a key for. That allows you to lock your baggage but still gives them access to inspect the bag if they choose. I have these locks on my luggage as well and it sure is peace of mind knowing I can still lock my luggage even with all of the security requirements going on today. I guess this is my strongest point about the case. The case is made well and the guitar fits snuggly inside. I just wish the compartments on the side had lids on them instead of relying on the top of the case to keep the contents in place. Picks and such get out and inside the guitar section of the case the way it is designed without a lid. Other than that it is a great product.

    Absolutely Amazing Case!

    By Jason

    from Chattanooga, TN

    Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

    This case will fit my Strat and my Schecter C-1 Classic like a glove. It also fits 35 other makes/models per the SKB website and is one of the best products I've ever bought. The only critique that I have is there is limited storage space (I bet some straps may not fit!). Other than that, it's a dream. I know my guitars will be forever grateful for incredible safety, comfort and reliability they will have in their home away from home!

    Great Case

    By Mike

    from OH

    Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

    I own several different cases for strats and teles. At first I was skeptical but have come to really like this case. The latches are easy to use and the case is well built. It fits my strats and tele very nicely. The case is very light compared to the traditional Fender tweed/tolex cases. The only negative is the lack of a compartment with a lid to hold picks or trem bars. For this reason I keep the tele in the case and put my strats in cases with compartments.

        This is the 3rd SKB case I have bought in this series. This one fits my telecaster very nice. I originally bought a tweed case and returned it as this SKB case is of a way better quality.

        This SKB-66 rocks

        By Merlinski

        from Forney, TX

        Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

        I wanted a nice hard shell case for a strat I made for my son and this fit the bill better than anything else I could find. The case is well made and has the TSA locks, which means the SKB-66 will not have its locks destroyed if the TSA people want to peek inside at the airport - they have the key. Also liked the fact this case is molded rather than having the big square one size fits all opening that other cases have for the body. Lastly, the case says "Made in Orange County, California," which was an unexpected plus.

        from issq,seattle

        Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

        My Fender custom case nice to have,but they are kind of heavy to carry.The SKB case are light even with the guitar in it.It took me a long time to decided if I wanted to keep my old Fender case.But I decided keep them for collectors sake.And use the SKB case when I am on the road.The new American Standard Fenders comes with a SKB case,so thats one guitar I don't have to worry about getting one.One gripe (I prefer four number combination just like Les Paul Gibson case)Thats something SKB should think about or even a choice between Keys or combination.

        Pleasantly surprised for Ibanez SZ520QM

        Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

        When I bought a used Ibanez SZ520QM last month, I knew I'd need better protection than the paper-thin gig bag that was sold with it. I wanted to find a case that's both strong and lightweight, which would protect the guitar from the weather, be easy to use, and shield the guitar from impacts. This case does all three.

        I had reservations about this case after reading mixed reviews. I could find only one review that mentioned my model of guitar, and it warned of the case not being deep enough and difficult to close. However, the manufacturer's website lists the Ibanez SZ series guitars as compatible with the case. When I came upon a deeply discounted Open Box SKB-66 at guitarcenter.com for only $11 more than what I paid for a nylon polyfoam case, I had to go for it. Upgrading to brand name hard case for only $16 (w/shipping) was too good an opportunity to pass, and I'm happy to say that my guitar fits nicely in the SKB-66. And there's room for a strap, picks, tuner, and extra strings. Needless to say, I'll soon be returning the polyfoam case/gigbag hybrid to that other big music store in town.

        My favorite feature is how the latches spring open and do not require much effort to lock in place. I wanted to rate the case five stars, but I'm deducting one quality star because of a quite popping sound I hear on the headstock end when closing the case lid. I think the problem might be due to a small misalignment between the top and bottom aluminum frames, possibly because of a hinge. It's a small issue that doesn't seem to affect functionality. If the problem gets worse, I'll take advantage of the case's limited lifetime warranty and submit a claim for repair or replacement.

        Great looking,well balanced case. It seems to be built well. Front latches are cool,nice spring type action.Rear hinges the oly thing suspect as far as being built to last a very long time. they are probably as good as any other hing they just don,t seem as beefy as you might want to see on a case of this quality. Would I buy another? Yes, and I probably will.

        Fits C-1 Hellraiser Just Fine

        By BrandT

        from Nashville, IL

        Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

        This is a great case. Very sturdy and the latches are absolutely great. My friend accidentally ran his bass over in the SKB universal bass case and the bass was unharmed, just a dent and slight bending on the edge of the case. I love this case. It's worth the money and fits my C-1 Hellraiser snug. The cutaways weren't held too tight, but the base of the guitar was really snug. Great quality case, buy it.

        This case will keep your Strat or Tele from damage. It holds them nice and snug. I do how ever think that there should be a lid on one of the storage compartments.

        Bullet Proof!

        By Adam

        from Berea, OH

        Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

        This thing is beautiful! The construction looks very strong and the thing looks like it could take just about anything. The TSA style locks are very cool. The case is very balanced and comfortable to carry. The only thing that I was not crazy about with this case is the shape of the inside part where the body of the guitar sits. It fits my Schecter Blackjack beautifully, however when I put my knockoff strat in it barely fits without a good squeeze. Since I bought the case for my schecter, this is not an issue. But it makes me doubt how "universal" the case really is. I bought this case as an upgrade from my "gig bag" which was not cutting it and I could not be happier.

        When this case was delivered in the mail, i went to pick up the box, and it almost felt like there was nothing in it. This guitar case is very well made, and won't pull your arm out of your shoulder while carrying it. Great job, SKB!

        from Faifax, VA

        Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

        I put together a Warmoth Telecaster and needed a case. I have an SKB for my Fender Tele and decided to go with another SKB. They are study and you don't mind if the case gets bumped or slides around in the trunk of your car. The SKB fits a Telecaster like a glove with plenty of room for my oboe, batteries, slide, picks, extra strings and a cable tester. It is also smaller than the Road Runner. The new TSA latches are nice too.

        Frequent Flier

        By PAUL

        from Texas

        Comments about SKB-66 Deluxe Universal Electric Guitar Case:

        I fly twice a week and needed a case that the airlines would at least have a difficult time destroying. This case has now made six trips and the case still appears to be brand new. The latches have held with the exception of one time that I picked up the case and it had one of the latches popped open. The case is padded very well and my telecaster fits perfectly and securely. No damage to my guitar has occurred since buying this case, and that is the bottom line. I am concerned about the hinges as they seem to be the weak point of the case and I think they will be the first to go. I will review again later to give some idea long term how well the case is holding up to known abuse that takes place through the airlines.

              Found this guitar case for about 40% of regular price as an Open Box item. The latches are great because the barely require any pressure to open and close. The built-in TSA approved lock is a nice feature, as is the deep well that accommodates the tilt-back headstock of my Ibanez SZ520QM guitar. Snug fit, and there's room for guitar strap, tuner, extra strings, picks, etc.

                  What bad things could you ever say about an SKB case? For less than $100 total, I consider to be a steal. Built like a tank, fits just about any electric guitar you can imagine including my new Self-built telecaster. Great case and I would buy another one if I needed.
