Will a PRS fit inside a Strat hard case?

I'm not a big fan of the rectangular case most PRS's come in. I'd like something molded to the shape of the guitar like this:



Will a PRS Custom fit inside a Strat hard case like this without any bouncing room? Or is there a better option out there somewhere?

If someone here owns a PRS and a Strat with case, I'd much appreciate if they could check for me!

What type of PRS? I'd imagine a Singlecut would fit better in a Les Paul case, but I guess you're talking about a CU24 or something along those lines.

No. It looks like it might but it doesn't.

This might work. There's dimensions listed, you can measure your guitar and see. http://www.skbcases.com/music/produ...set=2&c=82&s=75

Nope. You're going to need to take a hacksaw and remove the upper horn of your prs to make it fit. Also, try using a metal bastard file to get rid of those pesky frets that clog up your neck area in your case. Lastly, take an axe (or similarly shaped instrument, such as a hatchet) and remove that PRS headstock. You'll be left with a collector's piece worthy of any high-end collection. If you choose to sell it you will make money over what you paid for the original PRS.

If you want to go all out, SKB makes a fitted waterproof PRS case: http://www.skbcases.com/music/produ...et=1&c=82&s=75#

Can I ask why you prefer molded cases?

I'm just curious, as I've always liked the rectangular ones because they stack and store easier. My Les Paul case is a PITA because it's not flat anywhere other than the bottom, so nothing stacks well with it. I've also always felt like rectangular cases offered more protection, but that could just be something I made up in my head.

Sorry for the late-response-bump

I prefer molded because I find them slightly more portable. I have a small car and sometimes the bulky rectangular case can be a hassle to fit in along with my other junk. But when I decide to bring my Les Paul, which is in a molded case, I never have a problem.

My PRS's case isn't in the best shape either, which is one of the reasons I wanted to get this figured out before I get a new one.

General consensus seems to be that it won't fit in another case
