Purchased for a Deering Goodtime openback 11". Fits really snugly. Likely designed for outward-facing tuning pegs, I had to squash and reposition the provided pads (velcro fitted) to accommodate my models rear facing tuning pegs - The design could be improved by providing a smaller support pad specifically for rear facing pegs. The case has a small compartment below the neck for things like spare strings and tuner. A robust case that will certainly protect my Goodtime better than the gig bag sold as standard. Potentially an opportunity for Eagle music to offer a case upgrade on purchase?

Really happy with the case. Finish isn't perfect inside, hence not five stars. But a good case for the money. Snug fit, well padded and looks great.
