Comments about SKB Hardshell Guitar Case for Gibson Explorer/Firebird-Type Guitars:

Bought this for my 2016 Firebird T and the neck doesn't lay flat in the case so when you close the case it bends the neck

Great case!

Comments about SKB Hardshell Guitar Case for Gibson Explorer/Firebird-Type Guitars:

Great case for my epiphone korina explorer. Solid case - great latches - soft interior. A little tighter by the headstock, but should be fine. Highly recommended product!

Not for a Firebird

By E

from Grand rapids, MI

Comments about SKB Hardshell Guitar Case for Gibson Explorer/Firebird-Type Guitars:

Bought it for my 2016 Firebird T. The groove for the neck isn't at the right angle so it bends the neck whenever it closes.

Pretty cheap

By KYLE CANDLER

from De.

Comments about SKB Hardshell Guitar Case for Gibson Explorer/Firebird-Type Guitars:

Bought this for a Gibson Explorer E2. The handle broke within 2-3 uses. It's a lot of weight bearing down on what turned out to be a very small, vital section of plastic... aka poorly constructed. Will be returning it as soon as I find another option.

Fits wonderfully for explorers

Comments about SKB Hardshell Guitar Case for Gibson Explorer/Firebird-Type Guitars:

This is the best fitting case i found for my explorer. The latches are good quality and there's plenty of room for your strap or other accessories. The only downside to the case is the smell when you first get it which is very hard to get rid of. Sometimes leaving it out in the sun and putting some dryer sheets in it does the trick.

Superior in all respects...

Comments about SKB Hardshell Guitar Case for Gibson Explorer/Firebird-Type Guitars:

This case is so well made that it far exceeds the quality/protection of the standard Gibson/Epiphone rectangular case. Comes close to offering the protection of an ATA flight case but is far lighter. This case is really made for an Explorer but my Joe Bonamassa Epiphone Firebird fits well (even with the deeper Kluson banjo-style tuners which protrude out of the back of the headstock). Highly recommended!!!

Comments about SKB Hardshell Guitar Case for Gibson Explorer/Firebird-Type Guitars:

The case is sturdy, and holds the guitar securely inside the case, no sliding around. The Guitar Center employee was courteous and eager to help me receive my guitar case.
