I bought this case to store my Applause AE128 in. I'm new to the guitar and wanted something decent but I didn't want to spend a fortune. I DID want something a little bit more substantial than the cheap, lightweight, nylon gig bags that I have seen. This case is perfect. It's very well constructed, it has zippered storage pockets on the front and straps on the back so that you can carry it like a backpack. It's also got a very nice black felt lining, with an additional storage compartment, which will protect the guitar from getting all banged up. It's almost like a hard shell case that hugs the guitar perfectly. The fit is excellent. I couldn't be happier!
