Gator GWE-ACOU-3/4 Hard-Shell Wood Case for 3/4 Sized Acoustic Guitars

The shorter scale of 3/4-size acoustic guitars make them ideal for younger players, or for those who want a compact and comfortable grab and go instrument.

And just like regular acoustics, they will benefit from a good quality case, like the Gator GWE-ACOU-3/4, which is especially designed for its smaller profile.

This is part of Gator's Economy series of hardshell cases, which does not stray from conventional design, made from plywood with plush interior padding and black tolex covering.

Securing your instrument are latches that can be locked via a key.


  • Type: Hard Case
  • Lower Bout: 13.75"
  • Middle Bout: 9.75"
  • Upper Bout:10.25"
  • Neck Length: 19"
  • Overall Length: 38"
  • Body Depth: 4"


Owners are pleased with its overall quality and compatibility with parlor and 3/4 size acoustics. There are plenty of reports of it working with compact guitars like the Gretsch Jim Dandy, Martin LX-1, Yamaha CSF series, Fender FA-15 and it even works with vintage parlor acoustics.


There are a few who wish for a bit more depth space to better fit with fatter 3/4 size guitars.


Get the Gator GWE-ACOU-3/4 if you want to keep your 3/4 size guitar protected at home and safe for travel.
