After I ordered wrong case for my artist lp59gt they were very good in changing the order for me.A good fit for my guitar and excellent quality.I particularly liked that it had 4 extra studs so the case can stand upright if required.Also,love my Artist lpgt59,amazing quality :)

Good case

By: on 12 January 2024
This is a very good case for the price, the latches for the handle seem a bit cheap and don't follow the shape of the case at all, seem sturdy though. The cases material isn't like what you’d expect to see in higher end cases and manufacturer cases, but decent enough. Solid hardwood which is good. The lock is also a bit cheap, for a proper safe and secure case, go for a more expensive one, as the lock and key on this one is simple and finicky you have to kind of pull the key up when you put it in, but at-least its there. The inside is very good, fits snug for my Epiphone LP Custom, nice and complimentary to the blackness of my guitar. The pouch can store lots, ive got a tuner, picks and a gibson strap (just fits) in it. Overall a great case for a budget and a good case without budget.

Quality Case

By: on 25 March 2023
I have purchased a lot of gear from Artist Guitars. The quality, workmanship, finish of all their products is ALWAYS 100%. This case is no different, it feel sturdy it is sturdy, the finish inside and out is brilliant. I cannot fault the case, I purchased it for my LP59TSB (which is now the LP59 Vintage Sunburst) and of course it fits perfectly. These cases while sturdy are fairly lightweight so carrying case and guitar takes little effort. Thankyou Artist Guitars for supplying such great products and for such small prices, and of course aftersales service and communications.

The perfect fit for my Les Paul

By: on 24 January 2023
My '94 flame top LP has just undergone some major surgery to bring her back from a pretty hard existence so far. This case is a super comfy snug fit that I'm sure will make the next 30 years a lot more comfortable than the last 30. She looks much happier now - great case.

Artist LP400BK LP Hard Case

By: on 10 August 2022
My collection of 6 Gretsch Electromatic Jets [1 has a Bigsby] fit in this case with a little squeezing, but my Les Pauls fit in just fine as well as my LP59s & LP60s. These cases are sturdy enough to stack them four high against a wall. I usually wait for 'Customer returned' units to become available & the Artist team inspect them carefully to ensure they are in presentable condition. Artist Guitars have great value for money & these cases are no exception. **Gerry, Port Kembla**

Top case.

By: on 14 March 2022
Purchased two with my LP Style guitars. Interior is nice and plush, not only fitting snugly, but preventing scratches on the front and back. Strong and sturdy, proven by not only standing on them, but by putting enough pressure on them to acknowledge that they are built tough. Looks wise they are pretty enough though personally I would have liked the name plate to be a bit bigger. With a classy font for your company there is nothing wrong with advertising and a sticker would be nice.

LP Case

By: on 9 September 2021
Case arrived quickly and in good condition. My Gibson Les Paul fits nicely and snugly. The latches work perfectly. The case is great for protecting the guitar in light transport situations such as driving in a car. There are sum lugs/protrusions which are design features to give more protection and whilst a good idea, they could be slightly better placed. This replaced my genuine Gibson case from 1975 and the original case is slightly heavier and more solid feeling than this as well as a bit more slender. However the original Gibson case is very worn and no longer holds the guitar properly. This inexpensive Artist case is definitely an improvement.

Bloody Good Guitar Case

By: on 6 August 2021
The Artist LP400BK Arch Top Hard Case arrived well packaged. It fits my Epiphone LP Special perfectly. The build quality is excellent for the price. The storage compartment is large enough for my lead and a pedal. The latches are sturdy and work fine, as do the locks. Took this to a rehearsal and it felt comfortable and well balanced in the hand carrying it around. Metal feet on the bottom and side of the case work well. Good work. Would definitely recommend this product.

Black Les Paul case

Good solid case - slightly larger than the LP500 Brown case.

I never have to look elsewhere

By: on 12 November 2020
I bought this for a Les Paul with a tremolo that i had built. Just to be sure I contacted them and they were able to assure me that it would fit. So on the computer i went and the order placed. Three days later it was on my doorstep. The quality is superior to any others I've seen and the price was the decider. This is not the first time and it certainly won't be the last.. if you're looking for quality, bargain price and lightening delivery, then look not further than Artists Guitars

I've bought a few different cases from these guys for electric, acoustic and ukuleles of different sizes. They're all up to a good standard - sensibly designed and well made. So is this one.

Perfect case

By: on 25 April 2019
I built a prototype LP that needed careful transport for an interstate expo. It fit perfectly in the case, along with all the extra bits and pieces like tuner, spare strings, a small tool kit, picks, etc. Sturdily protected through the luggage loading and unloading process and very well priced. Recommended for any LP lover looking to travel with their gear!

Smart looking case ... arrived in a timely manner and well packaged (boxed). Seems to be of sturdy construction (but time will tell, as it always does!!) and, as specified in the advertisement, fits an Epi LP Custom perfectly. Seems like great value for the price.
