Purchased as a birthday present for our guitarist. He loves it: sturdily built unit, fits his guitar beautifully (sent message to Artist Guitars prior to purchase, this case was suggested), huge storage area inside. Nice plush lining should see his axe well protected.

I purchased the Artist REC300RC Black Electric Guitar Hard Case With Lock and I am very pleased with the Guitar case! The price was very competitive and the case is more than I imagined! Your customer service was great (as usual!) I ordered the Guitar case and received it within a week! I have purchased 2 x Guitars from Artist Guitars over the past 3 years and I cant be happier with the Guitars and your excellent service. This is why I talk to my friends about Artist Guitars and that they have purchased Guitars from your business. I look forward to purchasing more products from you! Keep it up team!!!

Hi there, thank you for your great feedback on our hard case. We really appreciate your continued support.

Excellent value for money

By: on 23 October 2021
I already have the tweed version of this case. Liked it so much I ordered the black version too. I placed my order and was warned about potential delays due to lockdown/parcel delivery. Must to my surprise I got the package within a matter of days (ordered on Tuesday, received on Friday, to Central Coast NSW). The case is great, it fits most of my guitars. I have some kit builds (Tele and SG from Pitbull) and it fits both of those as well as my strat. My Les Paul is a bit of a squeeze to close the lid. Very happy with the case!

Artist Guitars Response
Thank you so much for your kind words. This means a lot to us. We're always here for you so don't hesitate to reach out if you have any concerns. Cheers!

Well made and excellent value

Artist Guitars offer the best value guitar cases available in Australia. Immaterial of what guitar I buy, I will always put it in an Artist case. The REC300 fits my Artist Guitars Apricus6 very well and offers a very good level of protection.

Artist REC300RC Black Electric Guitar Hard Case Wi

By: on 13 October 2020
Normally, if something is cheap, you get what you paid for and it's not great quality. Not only is this case very well made for an affordable price, but I couldn't believe how quickly it arrived! Turned up at my door the day after it was posted. I'm so happy with both the product and the service from Artist Guitars and will happily be a returning customer in future.

5 stars from me

By: on 7 October 2020
excellent quality. Price is reasonable. I build a few guitars per year and they all need a case. Cant present a guitar in a gunny sack can I. It only took a week or so to turn up and that's in the middle of a pandemic...5 stars from me

good value

By: on 3 October 2020
Good solid case for the price and delivered free to Far North Queensland. Fit my G&L Legacy comfortably.


By: on 23 September 2020
I bought this case from the Artist Guitars' eBay store recently and am very happy with it (particularly at < $100) except for one thing. Basically the case has more than a tendency to topple over - i.e. it will not stay upright on its hinged side at all. This gets worse when a guitar is inside. I found having to prop it up against something disappointing (hence my 4-star rating) and I imagine it should not be a difficult fix. I can't compare it with other REC300RC cases so I am unsure if this issue is limited to the one I bought or it is a problem common to its entire run. Being sort of handy, I have come up with my own solution to ensure the case does stay up going forward, but I shouldn't have to do that. May I suggest different profile hinges (which also serve as levelling aids when closed) and/or studs (and possibly better placement of either item in relation to each other) be trialled to ensure the case stays upright. Cheers, Alex from Tasmania.

My RC300 case arrived today and once again Artist you have done well. This case is for my TC59 (which is superb) It is solid, the interior storage box has room for everything you need. Highly recommend. My TC59 should be nice and safe in this beauty.

Pretty good

By: on 28 August 2020
I bought this case for my Squier Classic Vibe Jaguar, as it's one of the few cases around that state it fits that body shape. Lemme tell you that while it does fit, it's quite the squeeze. On the plus side, there's zero movement while carrying. Regardless, this case is the usual high quality you'd expect from Artist and I recommend it. Especially for strat/tele sized guitars (mine both fit perfectly).

Great quality and value guitar hard case.

Quality Case - Excellent service

By: on 4 December 2019
I got this guitar case to fit a longer than average T shape guitar (Chapman ML3) which it does. It works as it should. the foam is a little lighter duty than other cases I've seen but serviceable and within expectation at this price. There was a little excess adhesive on one edge of the case which is easy enough to remove. Other than that I was very happy with the case.

Great quality and value, as usual from Artist!

Great case for the price!

By: on 18 July 2019
I bought this case for my Onyx Phantom as it is an unusual shape and the cases that are made to fit it are exorbitant. With a little padding, the guitar fitted in the case just fine! The case is great for giging but I would think twice about using it in an aircraft as the sides have a bit of movement and the bag chuckers may cause damage. I am very happy with the case and I would give the thumbs up to it for my friends!

I custom-build guitars and I will only use these cases, or the square-edged cases from Artist for my guitars. I've bought a few! My customers love them. Excellent quality without breaking the bank!

Flimsy case

By: on 8 March 2019
My guitar cases arrived a day late and then I discovered that the parts used to close the case were rather loose and flimsy. Both cases have at least 1 loose lock-in clips.

Excellent case. Excellent Service

A really nice case. Bought it to transport the Grungemaster around. For the price it's a steal. Fantastic customer service from Welvin, who assisted with a discount issue I had, on a Sunday morning no less! Top marks all round Artist Guitars. :)

Good product

Much durable than I was accepting for the price very good case

Value for money

By: on 22 September 2018
I remember times when most guitars came with a hard case as a matter of course, but those days are long gone, and they're now "optional extras" even with some quite expensive instruments. Bought a lower-end Strat recently, needed a case, and this Artist Guitars model does the job. Reasonably solid construction, generous-sized storage compartment internally, and comes with a locking key (although I've never seen much point in lockable cases, since the Bad Guys are just gonna pinch guitar + case anyway — still, it might stop the kids playing with your pride-and-joy!) ..... This product is very good value at the price and, as always, delivery from AG was fast, with good tracking info provided. If you have a Strat-type guitar, you can't go wrong with this one.

Nice case

By: on 16 March 2018
I give the case 5 stars for its build and quality, and also the service from the team at Artist. Only issue I had was my Fender Squier Vintage modified Jazzmaster didn't fit without some mods. I cut some of the foam out to fit the neck and body properly. I was happy to keep the case and do this.

Fantastic for the price.

Great product for the price and dealing with their staff was hassle free. Offers good protection for long term storage. Note that these don't stand up on their short ends as well as the rectangular cases - A very minor point.

Great Price and Very Nice Looking Case

By: on 7 December 2016
Such a Great Price for this Guitar Case I wanted for my Yamaha Pacifica 102S Telecaster and my Fender Stratocaster to Share it. Love the Rounded Shape instead of a Boxy Style Type which I Have got also too. Had Other Good Cases I Have but this comes up Very good at my Alley. Thank You Once again. Will Buy another One of the Same in the Future.

Very good value

By: on 4 August 2016
I think I have just about every one of Artist's hard cases for electric guitars and bass. I have Artist guitars in all of them (bar two, now) and use them specifically to put my custom made guitars in for my clients, due to the consistent quality and price of the cases. I love them as do my clients. The latest REC300RC Hard Case was the perfect fit for my old Washburn WI-64 (should anyone need a good case for one of those). I tried it in the REBC350TO case, but the REC300RC was the better fit. That body shape actually fitted nicely into both the Artist LP cases also. All in all, what ever make you have Artist has them covered. This recent case turned out to be a bonus for me. Good job again guys. Well made and well priced.

Good quality at a good price

By: on 26 December 2015
AG describes this case as "a sturdy decent quality guitar case", and that sums it up exactly. While I wouldn't necessarily entrust it to the tender hands of airport baggage handlers (and, in fairness, it doesn't pretend to be a flight case anyway), it most certainly will keep your guitar well protected under normal conditions, to and from gigs etc. I'm using it for my Tele, and there's stacks of room left over (both in the main body of the case, and in the large storage compartment) for leads, spare strings, tuner, etc. etc. The inner lining is very plush so, it will suit you if, like me, you like to keep your gear scratch-free. There's the usual three latches for keeping it closed, and a key for locking the centre one. In short, a decent quality case that's a lot cheaper than most others I've seen ...... And just a final word about AG's delivery tracking service — they're a darn sight better than Aust Post and the courier firms in keeping you up to date on where your stuff is. I usually sign up with Aust Post or the couriers for tracking e-mails, but they rarely send them or, if they do, it's usually something you already know ("The package was delivered to your address four hours ago" — yeah, I kinda knew that!:-) By contrast, AG sends multiple e-mails – "Your goods should be delivered today" / "Your package is out for delivery now" / "They couldn't deliver it because you were out" / "Your package is at Post Office XXXXX for your to pick up" etc. etc. Just another of the many little things that Artist Guitars get right. These guys are the best in the business when it comes to "budget" guitar equipment — their website is the first place I look for any gear I'm wanting. I just wish they also stocked some of the bigger brands (e.g. Fender) so I could also buy my more expensive stuff from them!

Good value

Excellent buy at the price and arrived faster than anticipated, so well done Artist. Bought for home storage (too many guitars, not enough walls!), it is more than fit for purpose.

By: on 11 May 2015
Ordered it in the morning, was delivered to my house that afternoon..maybe the courier lived nearby and dropped it off after his work finished, so i don't expect delivery as fast as this regularly, but same day delivery? It does not get any better than that! And it's a great case too, fits my jazzmaster absolutely to perfection.. I love dealing with these guys.

Artist guitar hard case

By: on 22 February 2015
I ordered this case to fit an oddly constructed 12 string solid body electric guitar - that didn't come with a case when I bought it. It now has a good solid case for the future. The process of ordering and buying it from Artist was dead easy: I did exchange a couple of emails with Ian at Artist and he always replied quickly and with useful information and assistance. So that was good. The case itself is ideal: nice and solid with good locks. Great.

Great Case

Great value

By: on 24 August 2014
Excellent & fast delivery service. Very happy with the product and top class after sales service. There is plenty of room for a range of solid body Fender style guitars. For my telecaster it just needed a couple of extra foam blocks to stop it moving forward. Once locked in position the off-centre handle means the case picks up perfectly balanced. Great value that provides good protection.

Great Case

By: on 31 May 2014
The case appeared from Sydney to Queensland basically overnight. It is a good size, nice rounded corners. The plush interior amazed me. Did think it would be as well padded and nice in appearance. Fits my Artist Guitars Fat Strat like a glove. Awesome price on a great product with really quick delivery INCLUDED IN THE PRICE. Beat that you can't.

REC300RC Electric Guitar Hard Case

By: on 13 November 2013
Having placed an order for the wrong size case (and which was delivered within 24 hours), I took that case back with the guitar for which I needed the case. They were very helpful, finding the best case to fit. The REC300RC Electric Guitar Hard Case is sturdy and fits the Epiphone Les Paul Junior at half the cost of an Epiphone case. I do need to put a bit of packing at the top to ensure no movement, but that just gives me room for leads, pedals, etc. Recommended. While I was there I also got other accessories at best prices I've come across.
