Hard shell case

Hey everyone, the premium leather Gibson case came with my guitar. It's gorgeous but with having a toddler running around I want to get a hard shell but am having trouble honing in on which one...suggestions please. Thanks - Chris

I bought a Gator case and it's great. Really solid and fits my LPs perfectly

I bought a new low end case from Long and Mcquade up here and it was made by TKL, the same people who built the Gibson case for my ES137. Only cost me $90 CAD.

Go with the Gator case. Muscian's friend has the brown version, as well as black. Some even feature the satin inner-cover.

Got 2 Road Runner hard injection molded cases for my Jumbos. Impervious to the road, nicely lined...should be toddler-proof no matter what they throw at it! About 99.00 if i recall. At GC.

I'm very worried about the headstock. The reason I want to not use the very nice leather Gibson case they gave me is because I feel there isn't enough support on the neck and the headstock sits on the bottom of the case. That's my fear.

I grabbed the roadrunner case. We test fit it before hand on my guitar. Plus I had a 15%off coupon.
