I got this case for 62.00 when I bought my Schecter C1. It does smell pretty wierd at first, and It makes your strap smell, but who cares. This case fits any strat body style guitar really snugly, which is nice. The lock is a bit cheap, If someone wanted what was inside they cound break it,but hey, Itll keep your case locked in a plane easily. I haven't traveled with it so i cant say how durable it is, but its got a lifetime warrenty on it-which says alot. Overall a great case, just needs more storage room.

I dropped 120 bucks on this case to protect my new tele and for the first year I was pleased. The most important aspect of a case is to protect the guitar, so yes this case meets that requirement, but after a year of normal to light use you could imagine how bummed I was when the handle broke off. All in all the case looked nice, but for 120 bucks I was expecting alot more.

SKB Guitar case

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

Smells funny when new. Noticed that my Fender Showmaster Telecaster barely fits in the case, though i believe that's a good thing because the guitar does not move at all. The case lock is fairly strong (at least it has a lock) and the rest of the hardware is built to last.

Great Fit For My Fender Telecaster Standard (MIM)

By Jerry

from Wytheville, Va,

Site Member

Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

This case is a great fit for Tele. It is very sturdy and provides adequate protection and is well made with a warranty. When buying a case know what you want it for. If you want one to keep your guitar in sitting around the house with no kids or dogs lingering then you can probably get by with a soft case. If you need one that could stand falling off the Empire State Building then your gonna need the best hard case they make. Price is also a factor too. (Hey I shop @ Walmart) The best bang for the buck...Read the reviews and try to find the 1 star ones to see what people are complaining about...it might be "it dose not fit my guitar like the salesman said it would" or "it fell apart after a week". Know Your Guitar Measurements !! You can Goggle it and find a picture with "How To" out there for a proper fitting case. (Lower Bout, Upper Bout, Waist, Neck, Overall Length, Height of Guitar) Guitar Center has the "Specification" tab beside the "At A Glance" tab on their items. You can also go to the cases home page to check for it. For this case, it suits my needs. It carries my guitar level. The inside is plush, the latches and handle are sturdy. It is not as bulky as the rectangle wooden ones I have are. It was exactly what I was looking for. Guitar Center had sent me a coupon via email in their news letter and I was able to get this case at an excellent price. The delivery was fast AND free. Thanks G.C. for the Great service again.

Upgraded SKB Case

By Torch

from Boston, MA

Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

Just so you know, SKB upgraded the latches and handle on this case a few years ago (2008 or so). Some of these reviews are for the earlier version of this case. The new version has have heavy-duty TSA-approved latches and a much sturdier handle. FWIW, I keep my strat in the earlier version of this case and it is just fine for my use. I keep my LP in a similar SKB case with the TSA locks and heavy duty handle. Both cases are great.

Best in class for tele guitars

By John Soderlund

from South Africa

Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

It's not a heavy duty flight case, but it is the best case I've come across in this price range for T-Style guitars. Much more organic and compact than the big rectangular boxes and plenty secure and resilient for gigging and general transporting. Highly recommended.

Perfect

By Mark Maxson

from Ogden, Utah

Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

My Yamaha Ty Tabor Drop 6 fits PERFECTLY! No one could actually tell me this, but I did see images of the case with The TT guitar inside on the internet. Funny considering the guitar has been out of production for 10 years + . Getting used to the oversized latches. For once an item EXCEEDS my expectations. Thanks SKB!

Great case to protect my Telecaster

By RICK MEAD

from Frederick, MD

Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

The case fits the guitar well and offers excellent protection. I would like there to be more storage space, but the low profile does not allow for allot of storage, overall I am pleased with the purchase.

How to buy a case without disappointment . . .

Verified Buyer

Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

The "good news" is that it fits my new FMT HH Telecaster perfectly, as well as my double cutaway PRS - The "bad news" is that their "quality control" is very inconsistent, which is why you want to buy from GC, because if you happen to get a bad one, unlike other online retailers on Reverb, it is very easy to do a no cost return or exchange without having to pay the freight, unlike Reverb, sometimes, both ways !!!

Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

Just got it so cannot comment on long-term durability, but it is well-constructed. I like SKB as a company: they provide a good warranty, the SKB website gives detailed info on the guitar maximum dimensions that will fit, and if you lose the keys you can buy replacements from their website.

      Excellent Strat Case

      By TOM TAYLOR

      from Kalamazoo, MI

      Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

      Fits my Strat like a glove. Very well made and the latches are killer. It has a decent size internal storage space, it's nice and light while still giving excellent protection. I would definitely recommend this case to anyone that wants to really protect their guitar. Price is very reasonable given the quality of the case.

      Great case, protects the guitar well

      By Daniel

      from Cambridge, ON, Canada

      Comments about SKB-FS6 Molded Electric Guitar Case:

      A great case overall. My custom Tele fits like a glove, and I get a lot of compliments on the case from other musicians who notice the quality. I had a problem with the handle falling off (or should I say the case falling straight to the pavement while the handle was still in my hand), but that's why we buy hard cases with padding...the guitar was fine. I emailed SKB and they were so classy, mailing me a whole new handle assembly first class. I would highly recommend this case, and SKB in general for cases (because who doesn't like working with a classy company?)
