This guitar case has been designed to fit a Gibson ES335, 345, 355 and the Epiphone equivalents. Externally, The depth of the case at the edges is 116mm and the depth at the centre measures 140mm.

Suits - Gibson 335 or similar and Ibanez AS93.

This Hard Case has a sturdy wooden construction with a lockable Latch (the key is inside the case). It has a great little compartment for all your accessories and spare strings. It also has a small pad to support the body.

Good Value 335 Case

By: on 29 November 2021
The case is very sturdy and generally well made. It does fit a 335, but can fit a few others as well. I can't give it 5 stars as there's a few obvious flaws to it, but the service from Artist Guitars is always top notch. The case itself fits a 335, but is better suited to other 335 style guitars that don't have an angled neck. When you put an Artist (Or Gibson) style 335 in the case there's no body support at the neck (generally you'd have a sloped support in the case towards the neck). But as I said, it fits a guitar without an angled neck much better. The tolex on the case is glued on over the seam joins and I'd expect after a while the glue to give way and you'll have to re-glue at some stage. But the case does look good, it does the job of keeping the guitar somewhat safe. I just wouldn't ship any guitar in it without adding extra packing up around the neck join first.

Hard Guitar case

By: on 31 October 2021
After receiving my excellent brownburst 58, I anticipated the arrival of the hard case. When it did arrive, I was very impressed. A quality piece of luggage - very robust, with stylish hinges and catches, and a plush interior that supports the guitar very well. I believe I heard a sigh of satisfaction as I placed the guitar in its case and closed the lid. The fact that the case is lockable is an added bonus. I may be merely competent as a player, but as a compensation, my Artist guitar case oozes style.

Artist JC450 Brown Arch Top Hard Guitar Case Fits

I purchased two of these excellent cases recently and I couldn't be happier with them as far as quality goes. With the prices of "brand name" cases going through the roof . . unnecessarily, I reckon . . how refreshing to find a local company offering a case to fit a Gibson/Epiphone ES-335 guitar at a very competitive price. I have two Epiphone Pearl White Dot Royale 335 guitars that needed new homes. A few years ago I bought two cases from Artist Guitars, only to find they didn't accommodate the Bigsby vibrato units that all my guitars are sporting. This time around, though, I checked the measurements listed on the website and measured an Epiphone case and decided to go ahead with my purchase. My two Dot Royale 335s fit easily and the case has room to close the lid with no problems arising from the Bigsbys on the guitars. The hinges are of good quality, as are the latches . . and the case has enough latches too. The dark brown tolex covering is well fitted and the overall "vibe" I get when carrying the full case is that they're nice and solid. Everything to like and nothing not to like. Thanks Artist Guitars. Definitely five stars!

Perfect fit for the Starcaster

By: on 29 July 2021
Trying to find a case that would fit the Squier Starcaster series was....interesting. Checking the dimensions on this case made me confident enough to buy. It's a good case and it fits the Starcaster perfectly A win! As with most Artist products it's well made and good quality at a very decent price. In this case (excuse the pun) I'm a little disappointed with the foam around the edges. Very low density and soft. I higher density foam would have held the guitar more securely and offered better protection. I'd recommend that Artist talk to their suppliers about this. I'd happily pay a little more to have decent hi-density foam surround the guitar. That said, the case is superb value and it wouldn't be hard to rip out the low-density foam and replace it. As always, shipping and product value are unbeatable.
