This is a nice looking old school tolex case with black plush lining and a large Gretsch logo. It seems plenty sturdy and fits the Streamliner G2420T like a glove. Just swing your Bigsby all the way to the clockwise position. Instead of a key, there is a hasp on one of the latches for your own lock. Does what it's supposed to do. I felt compelled to write this review because of a one star rating from a previous reviewer. Don't take it out on the case because the wrong one was ordered for your guitar.

Bought this case for my 2622 streamliner hard tail. While the guitar certainly fits in the case, there is around an inch of extra space around the guitar on all sides so it rattles around like a bean in a tin can. Additionally, the case was clearly originally designed for a thicker bodied guitar, the neck rest is so much higher than where the back of the guitar rests in the case that the head and neck actually stick up enough to prevent the case from closing. In other words, if you close the case the guitar will be resting with all of its weight cantilevered between the headstock and the middle of the neck. It also is enough play on the side bouts that the tuning machines hit the side of the case. I could probably remedy the problem by stuffing towels around and under the guitar, but for almost $150 bucks that’s unacceptable. I will most likely be returning the case.

My first impression when pulling the case out of the box was "wow, nice case, then I tried to open it. The top and bottom were stuck together as if they were glued together. After 10 minutes of prying the top and bottom loose came my real disappointment, my Gretsch G2420 fit like an oversized glove with side to side and front to back movement of, about, 1/4". Since the case looks more like an acoustic guitar case I tried my Yamaha FG-180 in it and the Yamaha fit perfectly! That leads me to believe the case is a re-purposed flat top acoustic case. The case will do the job but considering the box the case came in indicated that it came via Fender parts I think it could have fit much better.
