Hello everyone.  I perform a lot with a range of guitars including my lovely Yolanda (CBG) made for me by Thikwater guitars on here (the lovely Trev).  Anyway, I've been worried about transport damage etc and came across an old rifle case in an antique shop.  Too expensive for me so I searched ebay for modern equivalent gun cases and found some cracking cases around the £50 mark.  Bought one last week and it's absolutely perfect, with space for all my bits and pieces too (strap, slides, strings, plecs, etc).  The foam is cut into small squares so you can create your "drop in" spaces.

I'm not selling or promoting anything in particular, but just thought this might be helpful to some of you.  Apols if this is a well known thing on here - I was just really pleased to find one.  Requesting a custom size should be straightforward too.  Mine's a little oversized but should work well when I get another to pop in too.

Some pics.

Hey that works great - and the plane overhead thing is a bonus!

Yayyy! (-:

Nice one! You just take the squares out and use what's left? Versatile!

hey guys, old thread, but can you tell me what case that is in the OP? it's the perfect size for mine and would like that exact one, or if not, something very similar. I tried to write the OP and ask but the site wouldn't let me PM him.OP calls this a "cracking case" -- what is that? Thanks!
