I bought an Epi Dot and I know it doesn't come with a case. I was going to just try the cases they have in the store (Guitar Center) when it came in, but I was wondering if there is any case in particular that will fit it without costing a ton. I think there is an specially made Epiphone case, but it's $110 and it would be nice to get a decent case that's less than that. I would prefer a hard case, but if there's a soft case with reasonable padding that would be great too, thanks.
A friend of mine got a case free with his epi dot, a hardcase i mean. It seemed ok, im guessing that's the same one you're talking about (for 110$) but yours obviously didnt come free. How abut Gator cases? I dont know if they're any cheaper but they're good cases.
I bought a hard case for my dot, only $50. This isn't the exact case but mine works very well, it's a killer deal as all the other cases are 80+. Here's a link:
