All things considered, GREAT CASE, GREAT VALUE!


I bought this for a very special Strat part-o-caster I am building. I needed SOMETHING I could fly home with and not cause problems getting it there. From second one I knew THIS case would work! Fits a Strat perfectly! Positive the latches will stay locked no matter what the flight monkeys decide they need to do with it! Not sure why it has no covered strap/pick etc. storage, but pretty sure a clear baggie with my stuff will be fine. AWESOME protection for the price, will have to critique it again after some flights, we'll see! A little concerned about the coverage of just the case, not the contents as well, but then again, not a combat grade case, but close.



Fits a Custom 24 well


The case is surprisingly light for its bulk. It has already survived a flight and I'll be putting it to the test again, with my PRS SE Custom 24 in it. I am very pleased with the fit, especially around the lower, broader part of the guitar, but I'd advise anyone with a Custom 24 to consider filling the remaining space with clothes and the like for further cushioning. So far, I love the product. Will update if I happen to find anything wrong with it, but so far 10/10. Thanks for the great service, S&A!!



Well priced and versatile guitar case


I came in to buy a basic guitar case and for a few bucks more than I expected to spend, I walked out with this lightweight but super sturdy flight case. Great purchase, and the folks at Sam Ash in White Plains took good care of me as always..



Gator TSA ATA Molded Electric Guitar Case (GTSA-GTRELEC)


Aesthetically, it's not the sexiest guitar case around but seems sturdy enough for local travel. Personally, I would not use it for airline travel, especially check-in. I would buy a more expensive case that was, hopefully, a little sturdier, water-proof and that had wheels, not that I have to worry about that right now. I bought the floor model because there were no other cases on hand in the Sam Ash store to fit the PRS SE Custom 24 that I just bought - I'm not a big fan of gig bags. Also, I did not want to order another type of case without trying it out first. This case does fit the PRS SE Custom 24 but has about a one half inch gap between the tip of the headstock and the wall of the case. I don't think that the guitar will move around, though, because the foam on the top lid should hold the guitar in place when the lid is closed. You could always wedge a couple of cotton cloths between the tip of the headstock and case wall if you're overly paranoid about the extra space. I considered returning this case because it is a little heavy (11.6 lbs.) and the plush lining is a little sparse in some areas. Also, the padding is not tightly glued to the case walls and can easily separate from the walls as another reviewer noted. After researching other case options on the web, such as the Gator GC-Electric-A case, which is made from ABS and which has metal latches which did not seem to be the best quality, I decided to keep it. This case is made from polyethylene which is a stronger material than ABS and the latches seem to be okay (only time will tell). I also considered the PRS ACC-4255 hardshell case which is, supposedly, a bit heavier than this one (around 16 lbs. or so) - I didn't want heavier. Bottom line: This is a decent, reasonably priced case that will protect your guitar. As another reviewer said, there aren't that many other options out there and he's right. There are quality control issues even with higher end cases, such as the PRS for one.

Guitar Case


Got this one for my Epiphone DC Pro that came with out a case. The Epiphone case i tried didn't fit the horn properly so I went with this one instead. Good to go.



Everything I mentioned in the comments above with 5 stars.


Everything is great about this guitar case. I've already flown across the country with it and it protected my instrument perfectly. It's strong and lightweight. It's tough enough and keeps the instrument safe for airline travel. It has a TSA lock on it so it passes through TSA inspection with no problem. Also, it's not overpriced. Excellent purchase for me from Sam Ash.



True customer service


Have a very $$$ Guthrie Govan signature guitar and the case got lost in moving shuffle. Needed a replacement for a road trip same day . Staff at White Plains jumped through hoops and got us the perfect solution . They're the reason Sam Ash can stand strong amidst all the on line shopping options. Customer service requires more than a key stroke sometimes and I'm for one thankful the team at Sam Ash is there for me. By the way, been a customer for over 30 years.



Good Enough


Solid case that does the job for my PRS Vela. The inside padding seems to be easily separated/not attached well to the walls. It will absolutely protect your guitar, but it has the potential to not last very long. Handle and locks are quality. If you can get a decent price, pick it up. There aren't many better options out there.



Fantastic case!


Found a guitar that I loved... your salesman suggested this case for the ultimate protection. He was so right! Excellent case! It has features that most of my cases do not have. Love the heavy duty latches. Has a heavy duty molded outer-shell, high quality plush interior to cradle your guitar, a molded handle, latch release trigger and more. Very satisfied with this case by Gator.
