SKB 61 Molded Case for Gibson or Epiphone SG Guitars

This hard case has been molded to fit all 6-string Gibson and Epiphone SG guitars. It features a polyethylene outer shell EPS interior foam.

The SKB 61 has a re-designed interior to fit all Gibson and Epiphone SG's, except 12 strings, and the ESP LTD Viper series guitars. The exterior of the SKB 61 SG Style Guitar case incorporates superior structural and design features such as molecular weight polyethylene shell and rigid EPS interior foam to cradle the guitar securely and absorb shock, molded in bumper design to provide maximum protection for the valance system, and full-length neck support.

SKB's trigger release latches are made of indestructible fiberglass reinforced nylon and include a TSA recognized and accepted lock. The over-molded handle is comfortable and perfectly balanced.

TSA recognized and accepted trigger release latching system enables you to lock your case and still be inspected at airport security.

Again, plain-Jane, but top quality.

This is an extremely well constructed case, top quality materials, and sturdy.
Ease of Use
I have three different SG models and all fit perfectly in this case, no movement, no sliding, just snug and immobile. I primarily bought the case for a modifed SG Melody Maker as it doesn't seem to fit correctly in a standard Gibson SG case.
The case is well made, durable, and has stood up well to general use (gigging, travel, etc.) thus far. The smooth plastic finish will get a few dings, dents, and scratches, but hey, that's why you buy a case to protect your axe from the same.
This case is a little more expensive, but is totally worth the extra dinero. I also had a coupon for 20% off which dropped the case down to about the same price as a standard case. Keep your Gibson case at home, and let this one take any punishment. Also doesn't advertise your Gibson product to potential thieves!
