Hey guys!

So I got an LTD V307 not long ago, and I want a case for this bad boy. I have been cruising the internet for a bit and I can't seem to find anything that will fit this thing, I tried to use the case finder tool on Musician's Friend but I am bit skeptical of the results as it said that I could use a Dean fitted V case, but I am pretty sure that it won't be long enough for the points on the LTD.

Any of you folks out there have any ideas? I'm not looking for something I can hit with a bus, I just need a simple hardshell case to tote this thing around. Thanks everyone, I'll post a link to the guitar on ESP's site, but it doesn't have any measurements there and I can't take any at the moment because I'm away from the guitar.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

Wont it fit in Jackson King V case?
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/jackson-jackson-v-series-case-for-rr-and-king-v-guitars

Since V-307 is 25.5" scale and Jackson King V has really long pointy fins just like LTD V's and more or less at same angle too. I would assume it fits in. But then again you know what they say about assumptions...

*edit* The wider 7 string neck might be a problem, depending how much wiggle room the case moldings has.

This was the one that kept coming up, and I feel pretty good about it, I will probably get my GC to get one in and see if it'll work, I just was hoping there some other V owners out there that could give me some input, but it is definitely at the top of my list.

Go to Rondo Music and search for Hornet Case. Looks like they have one that is $73 and is supposed to fit a 7 string. I'd double check the measurements and/or email them to make sure it fits however.

That case if for the "Alexi" shaped Vs. His guitar wouldn't fit. His best bet is as mentioned to find and try some Jackson king V cases and hope for the best since ESP doesn't make the cases for the V-II shape any more.

Thanks guys, both good options, if the hornet will fit that would be very convenient, but the ESP will work if need be

I would go to a decent guitar shop and ask if they can source one, just because the cases aren't being made any more doesn't mean they've all been sold. Then at least if it doesn't fit you never have to part with any cash. There are also cases you can get where you cut the inside to fit your guitar, they're specifically made for people with unusually shaped guitars.

These were also thoughts of mine, I figure if I can fit the width and length I can take of the rest.
