Happy enough to get another one!

Got this case for my ST62, perfect! Now ordering another for the TL69. Will probably get one for my grandson's ST because it's way too loose in the REC300 case.

Have purchased 3 of these cases and have found them to very well made with great interior and most of all the are very light weight. I got one for my Grandson , he is a professional Muso and carries his guitar 3 nigts a week to gigs, he said it is the best case he has ever used. Big thanks to Artist Guitars

Great case for custom guitars I build

Being an electric luthier, I often am after cases to hold non standard shape guitars. This case does the work for me perfectly! Bought a second one now...

I like these cases because they are light and all you really need for most situations- probably wouldn't be my first choice when shipping by carrier tho. All i generally need for daily convenience- i have 3, I treat them well and they are my go-to for day-to-day applications

Better than most hardcases

By: on 18 April 2023
Recently bought 2 after eye balling for a while. One for a strat one for a Tele and they’re perfect. Would never contemplate a full on hardcase again for these styles. Every bit as good 1/4 of the weight and fit like gloves. If Artist could make all version of hardcases available in this format I would buy nothing else. Fingers crossed for bass friendly ones as well

Artist EFC701 Economy Foam Hard Case for Electric

By: on 5 April 2022
Yet another excellent product from Artist Guitars. I have a large collection of guitars and basses (mostly from Artist) and needed something between a gig bag and a hard case. I have hard cases but they are unwieldy. Gig bags are fine to keep dust at bay when my instruments are in the rack, but offer little protection when on the move. The foam case is an excellent “half way house” as it isn’t heavy and will protect my guitars when I go to/from gigs. I would love it if Artist could source a similar product for bass guitar. Otherwise, it’s a “yes” from me! Thanks Artist.

A great product at an affordable price. I had one or these many years ago and it served me admirably so, when I needed a new case for a new guitar, this was my obvious choice. And the price was right as well. All in all very satisfied all round.

Awesome Product

By: on 24 July 2020
I needed a cheap case for a new purchase and decided to buy one of these cases. I am so impressed with the level of protection and fit. I would keep all my guitars in these cases, and will probably buy again. Arrived within 48 hours. very impressive.

Thumbs up

By: on 27 April 2020
I brought these cases as i just need some budget basic hard cases to store my guitars at home. When i got them i was quite surprised they are a light weight sturdy case that will keep my guitars in pristine condition for years to come. I would definitely buy this product again. Thanks.

Great case guitar fits perfect

Surprisingly usable

By: on 4 July 2019
My wife will tell you I own w-a-y too many guitars. And being someone who likes to keeps his gear in pristine condition, I have hard cases for each of them. (Never did trust gig bags!) Anyway, I needed another hard case for my latest acquisition (a superb Artist TC59 Telecaster, incidentally), and I came across this budget-priced item. Initially, to me at least, the description "Foam Hard Case" seemed an oxymoron — I had no desire to carry my pride-and-joy around in marshmallow — but positive reviews encouraged me to look closer, and I eventually ordered. Anyway, this case surprised me — yes, it's of foam construction, but it really is a solid build, and I have absolutely no concerns re its ability to protect my guitar. No, I wouldn't entrust it to an airport baggage handler, but then I wouldn't do that with a good guitar anyway. In short, it's lightweight yet surprisingly usable — top marks, AG!

Perfect size and weight

By: on 31 October 2018
I purchased this case for my 12yr old son who has an electric guitar and has just started guitar lessons. Not only is it the perfect size, firm and sturdy, it is extremely light weight. Considering my son is only tiny in size, this is great for him to handle and carry on his own. 100% happy with my buy.

Very good case for the weight factor but still protects your guitar. Straps help with spreading the load - comfortably fits many different guitars.*Gerry, Wollongong*

Great case for my SRP2 guitar I bought months ago. I am surprised at how many different guitars this should fit. The bonus of light weight and shoulder straps put it in between a gig bag and a hard case with benefits of both. Very happy with this case and good value. **Gerry, Wollongong**

These are great cases if you have a guitar that's a little out of the ordinary. I've bought several of these. They're well made and perfect for storing instruments and if you don't need a solid case.

I am throughly satisfied with both the product and the service provided by ARTIST GUITARS. Initially I ordered the wrong case size and after letting Artist know, they promptly sent me return mail pre-paid labels and I posted them back and shortly after the correct cases arrived. Robustly packed and a very nice case for my two Ernie Ball Armada guitars. Well done Raul and the guys. Will definitely buy again from ARTIST GUITARS. Dr Vaughan Coffey

I bought this for one guitar but found it fitted another as well which I never thought I'd find a case for. The inside contours are really versatile and considering it's an economy model it's solidly made and protects the guitar very well.
