"Needs a little inside information"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought the case for my Epiphone Emporer Swingster, which I also had purchased from Zzounds. The Emporer Swingster is a hollowbody jazz guitar much deeper than the 335. I had been aware that others with the same guitar had trouble fitting it inside this case. I had the same problem, because of the Bigsby tremolo the case does not want to close all the way. It will close all the way but it made my very concerned as the tremolo arm gets pushed way down and exerts pressure on the top of the hollowbody and was concerned that in time it would break the top of the hollowbody. This is what I learned, if I take hold of the tremolo arm and pull it up a little, I can remove the spring holding the trem arm up. With the spring out it relieves all the string tension and the tremolo goes flat against the body, making it fit the case. I store the spring in the accessory compartment and it only takes a second to put the spring back in place. I really hope this tip helps my fellow players. Other than the heartbreaking "Made in China" sticker on the case, I'm satisfied. This is what you get for $89, I very seldom use my case because it just hangs from the wall in my house and I never take it anywhere. For those who take their instruments back and forth to jam sessions or whatever, I would really suggest a much better case than this.
35 plus years, guitar, drums, just mess around with keyboards and whatever I can fake
Jazz, blues, new age, rock (easy listening)
