When I started looking for a replacement case for my Gibson R8, I went to Guitar Center and looked at every single SKB case they had in this price range. All of them were warped or visibly cracked. Some research online pointed me to Gator cases, so I ordered one from Amazon. The case I received was a) pristine, and b) fit my guitar like a glove. It holds the instrument securely and, most importantly, does so with no pressure on the neck at all; the neck essentially is floating in space while the body is held tightly by the case body. Brilliant design. The TSA latches work great and the seam around the lid is perfect. Even the handle feels great! There is absolutely no reason to buy an SKB product when you can get this Gator case for the same price.

That said, while this case is advertised as having TSA latches, I don't know that I would consider it a serious flight case. It's durable as heck (I've taken it in a car across country), but I wouldn't feel comfortable checking it as luggage. If you need to fly your instrument, save your money for a serious ATA case. I don't consider this a knock against the Gator, as quality flight cases are in a whole 'nother tier ($500 and up).

I bought this case for my '78 Gibson Les Paul Custom. The original Gibson Protector case had worn out the hinges and a latch was broken. This Gator case is better built than the original case and it feels built to last. I would have no problem with it holding my vintage Les Paul. It is rugged and the handle is very comfortable. Would recommend to anyone looking to replace their original case. And Amazon has the best price!

We were initially very happy with the case. However, handle broke where it connects with the case. Gator indicated that they would honor the warranty and send a replacement part for the case. Currently, we have been waiting on the replacement for almost 3 months and no estimated delivery date. While Gator will return responses with each request regarding the replacement part (indicating the part is still on backordeer), they are not backing up their warranty with regard to either shipment of the replacement part or replacement of the entire case. It is ridiculous to wait this long for a part that clearly has a manufacturer defect. As of posting this, we are still waiting for the backordered part.

Have been using Gator's head and cabinet cases with great satisfactiion, and this case shows potential for no less satisfaction! First bought the most heavy duty Gibson branded case offered and the quality left a lot to be desired.

I bought this case for my Lespaul Custom, it fits beautifully, and I can take my guitar places without being worried about it getting damaged, the case is VERY sturdy, high quality, you can drive a car over this thing and I'm sure your guitar will be fine (i wouldn't try it but it's up to you) it locks which is very nice, comes with a unique key, and is airline safe. I highly recommend this case for keeping your guitar safe.
