Good but smelly

By JayRock

from Medway, MA

Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

this case is good, i just recently bought an Epiphone Les Paul and the case is a little much for it but it works it protects my guitar and it has a decent lock on it, and unlike my last case this one has a key with it

better case than many

By Erik

from Seattle, Washington

Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

Just purchased this case to protect my '61 SG. It seems like a good solid case with good clasps and a good lock with real keys, not those cheap suitcase keys. Yes, it does have an odor, but what can you expect from Industrial plastics? I would recomend this case to any SG owner.

Fits 2011 Melody Maker SG

By Richard

from Houston, TX

Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

I didn't see any reviews saying which guitars this case actually fit, so this is my personal experience. I have a 2011 Melody Maker SG, and this case fits it perfectly. I also have a 1967 SG Special, and the fit is not as good. The neck tilt is different on the '67, so that it sticks up out of the case, unless I roll the strap up and put it under the opposite end of the body. The Maestro tremolo arm also hits the top of case with the old one, so I don't think I will use it for that guitar until I get some kind of quick(er) release setup for the trem arm.

Pretty Good Case (despite my last review a year ago)

By Sean

from New England (2nd Review)

Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

This case is very protective. After having it for a year, it has held out pretty well. The smell of the case does go away after a while, and you also get used to it after a while too. The only bad thing is that the bottom strap holding the two sides of the case broke off very quickly, but that didnt really do anything bad for the case I guess. I would buy it if you have/are getting an SG.

last case you'll need

By TheBaron

from Seattle, Washington

Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

This case performs as advertised, and mine actually smelled like fresh cut spring flowers so I don't know what everyone is talking about down below. The latches are super simple to operate (you don't have to hook them over anything) they just click open and closed. It's got a decent lock on it, which is more than I can say for my roadrunner case, and it's lighter than I expected. Also I didn't see it mentioned anywhere but it has a small compartment in the neck, adequate to fit my strap, tuner, slide, and capo. Quality product overall, and if you bought a several hundred dollar guitar spring for a nice case. My last case put unnecessary stress on the headstock which may have contributed to a crack forming in it. This case, which was designed specifically for the SG makes sure to support the entire neck and suspend the headstock.

No. 1 Reason to Buy this case.

By Dean Griffin

from Allen, TX

Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

SKB Hard Case Products are fully warranted against defects in materials and craftsmanship for the life of the case to the original owner. (Direct Quote from SKB web site.) Case construction, form and fit well worth the money. Had a SG SKB model case, developed cracks in the outer shell after 3yrs of normal use. Returned the case to SKB for 13 dollars shipping, received a new updated case version replacement.

Excellent Durable Case

By John Hill

from Birmingham, AL.

Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

My Gibson SG fits snugly in this SKB case. It is sturdily built, provides good neck support and appears built to last a long time. Although it is not lightweight, it is not heavy either. It is ideally designed to protect an SG guitar. I already had an SKB case for my American Fender Stratocaster, so I knew they made really good cases. Although the large clasps look a bit clunky, they close easily and securely and meet international TSA airline checking requirements. I expect with it's durable design that it will easily last my lifetime. All in all a good value at the Guitar Center price.

Great Case!

By Julie Martin

from Williamsburg, VA

Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

I purchased this case as a gift for my son. It was put to the test days after when his band mates bass amp fell on it. His SG survived unscathed. The case is very lightweight, durable and my son's SG fits snugly. He is very happy with it.

Excellent SG case

By James Tinker

from Houston, TX

Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

I bought the case the same time as the SG which was only a few weeks ago. However, I believe it was an excellent decision. Form fitted to the guitar, and of sturdy construction, I am impressed! Much better quality than the generic hard shell cases I've owned previously. If you value your SG, seriously consider this case. It has a life time warranty (for original owner) so there isn't much risk involved.

falls a little shot on quality

By Manuel rose

from woburn ma

Comments about SKB-61 Deluxe Double Cutaway Electric Guitar Case:

Im just taking the time to write this so that others will have an informed overview of what people like myself think about this product. To begin with this is really a nice case. The 4 stars are for these reasons, the case does,nt line up in the back as well as you would like it to, it does snap into place once you close it and move it around a little. i have a EC 1000 deluxe and i have to put a cloth at the top of my guitar to keep it snug, so it,s fair to say MY guitar is a little small for this case! thats not the cases fault, that was my fault for not paying closer attention. this case is well built with nice clasps and lock, it has an inner ledge so you don,t have to worry about water getting in. I would have no problem putting this case on a plane, it,s built that well! this case has weight to it! check it out there selling it cheaper than what i paid for it, you will like it !!!
