^ A prestige or those charvels i mentioned should come with a case. not worth getting a guitar you hate just because it comes with a case (obviously ) but at the same time maybe worth bearing in mind too as a sort of tie-breaker.

Some guitars just don't come with cases new. They're sometimes included at an additional cost, and sometimes the guitar as a package is cheaper, but that's only because it doesn't come with a case. It's easy to ask why a guitar that costs so much more than your current stuff when it doesn't even have a case. But that's because you're getting a better guitar. If it did come with a case, it would just be even more expensive.

But at any rate, get a case whenever possible. It's too good an investment in my experience. It's the only way to carry and store a guitar reasonably safely and still be practical enough to carry around. Yes gig bags exists, but they're never protective enough.

But at the same time, not buying a guitar just because it doesn't come with a case would be foolish. You can always buy a case at a later date.

Absolutely get a hard case. I keep my guitar hanging on a wall hook at home, and I have a gigbag for whenever I want to just throw it on my back and ride my bike to a friend's house for a jam, but going to a gig, or any other situation when it'll be transported in a car, it's molded hard case all the way. More than worth it.

Great advice here. Don't spend a ton of cash on a guitar and put it in a $20 gig bag. Protect your investment and get a good hard shell case.
