Black coffin case for $25 or Gator Deluxe GC-Electric-A for $40. Both in good condition. For my ESP LTD H-302

As of now I'm planning on just getting the coffin since it is cheaper, unless someone has a reason I should spring for the gator.

i'd get the gator just because it doesn't look as cheesey/stupid, but that's me. i would suggest SKB, but that's a lot more than your budget.
