"Hey, it's 60 bucks. What do you expect!"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
Dull thud when you knock on the case rather than the healthy thump you would hear with harder wood.
My Tele, (MIM) fits very snug and that's a good thing. Won't be bouncing around in there. Latches seem good and appears there won't be any accidental openings.
Compartment roomy but the compartment cover feels like it could easily be bent or a good tug could rip it right off. Latches good as stated above but the hinges seem to be a bit fragile and could easily be bent causing the alignment to be off. Keep this case closed before and after putting guitar in or out. Don't leave propped open. When I recieved it the "Tolex" on the bottom didn't seem to be glued totally as evedenced by some minor blistering. We'll see over the long run how it holds up.
Fast delivery and the packaging seemed stronger than the case itself. Hmmmmm?
Although it seems I'm being pretty harsh with my review it looks like it will suit my needs of local gigging. Wouldn't trust it on heavy road use though. As far as being as good or better than a Fender case...Whoa, that guy must have got Fender cases that were made on Monday!
Should last me a couple of years with a little TLC. Will carefully be setting it in the van rather than chucking it in there while being distracted by the groupies.
