It's a good one.

By That one girl

from Earth

Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

This is a great case. It is great for travel and protects your guitar against weathering. The latches are very secure. The case comes with a key and lock, which in the long run is really pretty pointless but the quality is great. No regrets.

Great Case!

By Calvin

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

This is a great case, nice and solid so that even when I drop it (which has already happened a few times) my guitar is fine. The lock might be useful if you gig a lot, but I'm not sure about that. It has a handy little compartment under the neck where I keep some picks, a pack of strings, and a tuner. It also fits left handed guitars, which is good. All in all a nice case.

Excellent, Solid, TIGHT

By PMac62

from Peachland, NC

Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

The SKB-56 Deluxe LP-Style case is well-made: solid construction; lightweight. Definitely protects the guitar; but I would also agree with other reviewers who found its LP shaped foam-core interior to be extremely TIGHT. For my custom LP, it is tight in all directions around the body - horizontally and vertically (depth). I carefully worked the instrument into the interior and shut the case the first time with some effort -- since top and bottom did not meet / match-up, leaving about a 1/4-inch opening. So I had to apply some pressure and the case closed / latched. After a few days of being in the case, the guitar can be removed and reset into the case with much less effort, but the case still needs a little pressure to close. I was tempted to return it at first, but I don't think the nominal amount of pressure applied / transferred from the case to the instrument will cause any harm. So - like I said: Excellent; Solid; TIGHT!

They stand behind the guarantee

By David Newman

from DFW,Texas

Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

I bought one of these a couple years ago for my son's Epiphone Les Paul. Some how,& I don't believe I've gotten the real story, he broke the shell of the case in several places. I sent it back to SKB & they replaced it with one of these with the new style latches,no questions asked. All I had to pay was shipping to their facility. So in short, great, sturdy case from a company that stands behind their warranty.

Amazing Case!!!!

By Timmy

from seattle, washington

Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

This is truly an amazing case! i bought this hard case for my 1964 Gibson Les Paul about a year ago for some extra protection, and just this morning of writing this review my bassist ran his car over the case with my gibson inside of it on accident and i was terrafied of what i was about to see when i first opened the case after the accident. And i was completely supried to find my gibson untouched and not a scratch on the guitar. this is definatly a must to have if you want to be safe i would have never thought this would happen but now im glad i bought the case 5 stars.

Solid Value

By Bob Nardeli

from Tempe, AZ

Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

Good case for the price. It may seem like a lot to folks who are new to guitar playing, but it's not really much when you consider the protection you get. The nice Gibson USA and Epiphone cases that come with your Les Pauls are fine for storage and some light traveling, but you'll want something a bit more resilient if you're going to be spending any amount of time touring in a van or small car. The latches are very well designed, and easy to open and close. The interior is nice and plush, and grabs your guitar nice and tight. A hard shake in the air confirms that your guitar is not bouncing around inside at all. The neck has tons of support, which also provides ample storage space. I can get my Korg GT 120 in there, along with strings, a pickholder stuffed with picks, a string winder, and a few polishing cloths. The exterior is plain black abs plastic, but it's stout enough to take some punishment and then some. Haven't had the opportunity to really test it's abilities, and hope I never have to. Overall, a great case

Superb flight case

By Roberto Hippie sk8r

from Mexico City

Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

I got this guitar case to protect my new les paul, and boy is it great!, it fits my les paul perfectly, the interior is nice and soft and it has a little compartment to place things, but the outside is built like a tank, I took it on an airplane flight and my suitcase looked more beaten than this baby i recommend you get it to protect your guitar, especially if you travel a lot, you'll feel safer

Excellent replacement

By Dave

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

I bought this case to replace the original case for my '77 Les Paul Standard. The old case has seen better days, so it goes into storage in the off chance that I ever sell this guitar. This case is a perfect fit. The latches are heavy duty and work very well. This case is also a lot lighter than the previous case, so that gets bonus points.

Great Les Paul case!!!!

By Randy Tilton

from Yakima, WA

Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

I love this case! I have 6 Les Paul guitars. 3 Gibson's with Gibson LP cases, 2 Epiphones with Epiphone & TKL cases, & recently acquired an Edwards Les Paul. This SKB case fits all my Les Pauls perfectly & yes it is a nice tight fit. The handle is very comfortable and the latches are awesome. Possibly my favorite Les Paul case. It looks classy, no weird smell like some other cases I have bought new over the years, and best of all it protects my guitar really well. I would never transport a guitar in a gig bag. This case is worth every penny! I use this case for my Edwards Les Paul and will buy another one if my Gibson cases ever need replaced.

Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

The case seems to be sturdy, but the latches seem to open too easily. If you're not careful, they can open by mistake or not fully close. The weight and handle are great, making your carrying around comfortable.

    Great case for transporting any of my guitars to classes or just to friends for jam sessions. I live in snow/ice area of U.S. Never know when you may slip and slide or fall. I feel this case gives great protection. Also nice way to keep guitars out of reach of little hands when grand kids are around. Love this case and am planning on ordering few more.

        SKB Guitar Cases

        By Jason358

        from Tigard, OR

        Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

        Ever since I got this case for my les paul, all other cases have seemed inferior. My les paul does not rattle around, which makes me feel secure. Not only is it a perfect fit, but the case can also fit my strap, tuner, whammy bar, and an extra pack of strings! Truly a great case. I will only get SKB for my guitars from now on! Note that you must keep the elastic strap INSIDE the case, and that the case is really heavy. To me, that just ups my security feeling. :)

        Very nice case!

        By Dan Scott

        from Dayton, OH

        Comments about SKB-56 Deluxe Single Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

        I've have this case for about three months now and love it! It fits my LP like a glove. There is plenty of extra storage inside for a pedal, tuner, strap...etc. Very lightweight, but very rugged! The only issue I have had is that the handle broke after about two months. I have to say that SKB has customer service second to none! All I did was call and had a new handle on the way in less than five minutes. These folks stand behind their product!
