As I showed in my other thread, I just finished my guitar.



Biggest problem I have now is finding a hard shell case it will fit into. I just shopped around GC, Samash, and two local shops I deal with and nobody had anything.

I may have to find something I can cut the foam in... like a universal case or something.

It's gotta be sturdy enough to get stepped on. I can't handle this thing getting broken.


The body is longer and wider than a Strat, and the neck is roughly the same.


Anyone have suggestions?

Yeah, but it's not just for function. I want it to look professional when I show the guitar off to people. (as this will be part of my business eventually - for now I just do repairs)

By the way, I'm glad to see that the custom build has finished. Looks incredible, genuinely! If you start making them, what sort of price are you looking at?

As for the case...may I suggest that you could looking into buying a rifle case and cutting into the foam? Could be a good idea.

Sure it will fit in a bass case or a coffin case, but this guitar is slightly larger than a strat. It looks retarded sitting in a huge case like that which would also need some extra padding to keep it from flopping around.

So its not just a matter or big enough, its a matter of finding just the right size.

The body dimensions are 20"x13" and overall length is about 39 inches.

When it goes into a bass case, the length leaves a foot of empty space at the head. A Coffin case leaves 6 inches on either side of the body.

Not sure. There's a lot of things to consider, but it will be an expensive guitar.

Thought about it for sure. I just haven't started looking. I'll do that now.
