I love my Schecter Hellraiser, but need a case for it. Am looking for hardshell, but if a gigbag gets incredible reviews I would consider it.

I was just gonna get this one but my brother has one and its not the greatest value for the money, but I guess it would work. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Schecter-Diamond-Series-TStyle-Case?sku=545147

Stumbled on this too, what do you think? http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Gator-GWE-Elec-Hardshell-Electric-Guitar-Case?sku=546207

This one also caught my eye, hmm? http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Gator-GLElec-Lightweight-FitAll-Electric-Case?sku=546104


No more then $100, open to any suggestions as long as the Hellraiser fits nicely, please post links. Thanks!

slightly disconcerting given they don't know how to spell "investment"

The newer cases from Schecter are nicer than the older ones (blue inner lining).

I have one for my Blackjack.


The biggest difficulty I've found in finding a generic hardcase is because of the length and angle of the Schecter Headstock. On a number of cases I've tried, the tip of the headstock ends up hitting the bottom of the case, either causing it to go out of tune (because a tuner will also end up hitting the bottom, or making me nervous if the case were to just fall flat (neckbreak?). I have Roadrunner cases that are just like the Gator one (your second link), and the headstock would hit the bottom enough that it didn't make me comfortable with it. I think those are much better with non-angled headstocks.

I have a Roadrunner Polyfoam semi-hard case for my Hellraiser that fits it fine (somewhat similar to your third link), but I had to try several cases (even of the same brand) before I found one that fit without the headstock hitting the bottom. I'll probably order another Schecter hard case for my Hellraiser if anything were to happen to the polyfoam one.

The reviews for that case are awful on musiciansfriend, hmm..

I own one close to that and I like it better than my gator deluxe:

They are both fairly nice though. That other gator hardshell you were looking at looked really cheap to me. The gator soft case is pretty nice though.

I tried it at a shop that stocked it. The only downside I can see is that the interior isn't super soft, but it's nothing that will scratch the guitar. I've also had mine for a number of months and it's survived two moves and many trips. The lock works fine and the case closes snug.

It doesn't hold the body snug like a glove would, but I'm actally fine with that as I can squeeze the strap in without having to take it off all the time. When you look at the other generic cases, they don't exactly hold the guitar body snug either and a lot of times have much more space around the guitar.

The outside also seems pretty durable. The last move I did was the roughest and I ended up with a torn and dented case on one of my Roadrunners and a hard shell acoustic case. Not a blemish on the Shecter one (or a Fender SKB one for that matter).
