The Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus that I ordered arrived at Guitar Center. I rushed over to pick it up. I opened the box to check it out before I left the store. The guitar is in perfect nick. The supplied case however had a hinge that had separated from the body of the case. I brought this to the manager's attention. He got on the telephone and wrangled a deal. I walked out with a brand new Road Runner case for FREE! I had to agree to take the Epiphone supplied case out the door with me. This Road Runner case is SMASHING! I love this case. It has six, count them, six bloody latches. It has plush grey lining. When the Tribute is in the case and the lid is closed and latched there is no shifting!

Purchased this case to go along with a 'first' electric guitar/amp for my grandson's birthday. When I picked the items up at the store, I noticed a chemical smell---thought it was just a 'new item' smell. I was way wrong. When my grandson came over for his birthday party, he popped open the case---and the room filled with a strong toxic chemical smell---who knows what caused the odor that was outgassing from the inside of the case??? Glue? Waste plastic recycled into this item? Pesticides? All of the above? The smell caused everyone in the room to gag, watery eyes, sneezing, itching skin, etc. The odor had even gotten into the Epiphone Les Paul guitar---what was to be a gift turned into a big disappointment. I put the open case in my garage for a week with no success---it still reeks and causes skin irritation/watery eyes. I'm going to take the case back for a refund and really check out any replacements. (Do an internet check on 'toxic plastic from China'---lots of products with this problem. I purchased a beginner set of harmonicas over two years ago and had the same problem---the chemical odor never went away and I tossed the harmonicas,)

Great Case but not enough storage .

By Lawrence Marchant

from Wichita, KS

Comments about Road Runner RRMELP ABS Molded Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

This is a great case that cradles my Honey-burst Trad perfectly. However the storage compartment will not hold my Levey's suede strap. I got this so that I can keep my Gibson case mint while I take this case to gigs. The best thing about the case is that it seems sturdy and durable but it is also very light. The plush lining while not as deep as the Gibson case is better than any aftermarket case I have seen under $170 dollars. Classic Rock, Alt Rock, Punk.

      Great Case!

      By Eric Kane

      from Greenville, South Carolina

      Comments about Road Runner RRMELP ABS Molded Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

      I purchased this case from my local Guitar Center yesterday, so I can't really speak for the durability just yet, but so far I can say that I really like this case. I use it to transport my 96' Epiphone Les Paul Custom, which fits snug, but not to tight; definitely not bouncing around. It is very lightweight and comfortable to carry.The storage compartment holds a fair amount of accessories. I have had no problems with any of the six latches opening by themselves, though some of them are a bit crooked. Other than tat one little flaw this is a great budget case that will provide your instrument with adequate protection.

      Perfect fit for Gibson LP

      By David Jenks

      from Medford, OR

      Comments about Road Runner RRMELP ABS Molded Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

      I was pleased when I first checked out this case; before leaving the store, I test-fit a Gibson Les Paul to be absolutely sure it would fit properly; the fit was very "comfortable" and confidence-inspiring. I've heard of people complaining about the number of latches on this case (6), but it made me feel more secure. My only complaints: 1. The latches were somewhat lower quality than I had hoped. 2. I'd have preferred a combination lock mechanism over the cheap everyone-has-the-same-key "lock."

      Not a good fit for Gibson Les Pauls

      By Russell Bourne

      from San Francisco, CA

      Comments about Road Runner RRMELP ABS Molded Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

      Let me start by saying that this is a very well-made, high-quality case. If it's a fit for your guitar, you'll do very well with it. However... ... the model number ending in "-LP" would lead you to believe it fits Les Pauls.. surely this is RoadRunner's case that is meant for a Gibson Les Paul, right? Not so. I purchased a LP and wanted a different case since the one that comes with it is a) to be kept in mint condition for best resale value and b) not very sturdy. The RR case bottom has an upward slant going toward the neck joint of the guitar. So, the guitar's heel sits pretty high in the case and as a result, the neck doesn't settle snugly into the neck guides that border the accessory compartment. The inside of the case lid has a neck channel, but it's much wider than the neck. Therefore, even when closed, the guitar flops around inside the case quite dramatically. And, if you're storing the case on its side (or are carrying it!), all the weight of the guitar's neck is resting on the G-string's tuning peg. So... great case, but not if you're buying it for the guitar you're probably buying it for.

                  Nice Case. Very Little Storage Space.

                  By TJ Donahue

                  from PA

                  Comments about Road Runner RRMELP ABS Molded Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

                  I bought this case for my Epi LP Custom. It fits it like a glove. The guitar is nice and snug with no movement. The case in nice and small on the outside which is great for storage. It seems to be built well enough. The only thing that I don't like is (like the other rating said) I can not put my guitar strap in it. There is just not enough storage space. I guess that is the price you pay for it being small on the outside.

                  Comments about Road Runner RRMELP ABS Molded Single Cutaway Guitar Case:

                  I bought this for my 2012 Gibson Les Paul Jr. Special and the case is too big. My guitar moves both end to end and side to side in this case. The neck cavity is too wide. I tried my Gibson LP Trad + in this case as well with the same result. I ended up keeping the case and placing a hand towel in the top neck cavity to keep the guitar from moving while the case is closed. The latches are also a PITA. They slide from side to side, making closing the case a real hassle. I kept the case because I only paid $46

                  Walked into GC looking for a case for my junior. This thing was immaculate. It was a nice comfy fit. No wiggle room, very secure. Could use a touch more storage. But I've been jonesing over this case since I got it. Definitely would recommend it.
