Closest StoreVancouver, British Columbia
I really like this case. It keeps my guitar safe and snug and I haven't noticed any signs of poor craftsmanship or bad QC. It does not fit every explorer style, or firebird, as noted. I have a Dean ZX (probably closer in dimensions to the forewarned Dean Zero AoD Dave Mustaine signature guitar) that, due to the bolt-on construction, does not fit in this case. I have an Epiphone 1984 Explorer that I keep in this case and have had no issues with. The storage area, though small, is deep and fits some tools, straps, picks, a cable, etc. I can definitely store more than I expected with the smaller size of this case, all things considered. This case does not stand very well, as it has a latch on what you might call the "bottom". It is designed to be laid flat, or on it's hinge-side like most other guitar cases. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase.
