Ordered with the Jumbo Take EG523SC guitar and it fits like a glove. Case is made very durable and sturdy. Fit and function is very well.
Good fit for the Takamine G Jumbo. Quality of handle mount not impressive nor was it padded as advertized. For the price it will do, but generic case may have been better buy.
Maybe not the sturdiest case on the market, but also not the priciest - and it fits the EG523CDX Jumbo like a glove. If you're a traveling musician, you probably want to find a case that would take a beating from a gorilla like a Samsonite suitcase, but this case does the trick for a light traveller and looks great.
Just picked this up after waiting 3 months for it on back-order. While waiting, had plenty of time to see other reviews, both on GC site and on competitors' sites. General consensus is (and I concur) this case is at best average. Materials and construction appear cheap to me. However, I thought the fit was better than some of the other reviews described. I have an EG523SCB, and found it to fit well. No signs of overspread of glue, as other reviews described. My primary concern of this case is the placement of the neck support. It is positioned closer to the body than the headstock, which means the entire neck and the headstock are effectively hovering inside the case. If you plan to move your guitar a great deal, this would be a concern to me. If the case is primarily to be used as a cover while not in use, I suspect you'd be fine. While waiting for my case, I asked GC for another case in the interim (had to buy, but could return if needed). They gave me a Road Runner case which I think is superior to the Takamine case. The lining is plush, but the padding in the Road Runner is more rigid than in the Takamine. I think this would provide better protection for a guitar that is moved a great deal. Plus, the outside is ABS plastic, which my scuff. But I think it would be more durable than the thin vinyl glued to plywood in the Takamine. Haven't decided if I am keeping both cases, or taking the Takamine case back. It cetainly looks nice! Hope this review helps others, particularly those considering waiting for this case on back-order. May be a little disappointed.
I bought this case for my takamine eg523sc12 because most of the time when you buy a guitar under $1000,it does not come with a hardshell case. Of course the guitar center store where I bought it did not have one,so I ordered one on line.one thing I have learner over my 56 years, is that you get what you pay for.this case is ok but the guitar does not fit as snugly as I would like.these are generic cases with a takamine decal on them..with that said, most of us are not professionals, and this case should last a long,long time,standing in the bedroom or closet.want a better case? Spend more money!
I bought this case sight unseen online from Guitar Center for my Takamine EG523SC-12 acoustic 12 string, so I had to rely on the description to decide if I wanted this case. I was surprised to find that it was everything that they said it was. Sturdy construction and quality appearance make it look like a case that you might pay twice as much for. It has gold tone hardware and a feature that I really liked--three gold tone metal support nubs on the back of the case to keep it off of the floor when you lay it down. The inside is generously lined with a plush velour and the guitar cradles safely and snugly enough that it won't bounce around inside during transport. The support block that the neck rests on contains a storage space with plenty of room for picks, capos and humidifiers, etc. The inside of the lid has a raised cushion that further protects the strings and neck down to the bridge of the guitar... well thought through. The outside of the lid displays a gold Takamine label that is lined in black... a classy touch. This case is definitely the best "sight unseen" purchase that I've ever made.
