I managed to borrow a rectangular telecaster case and tried ALL of my electric guitars in it. The only ones that don't fit are the Shine ES335 copy (too long and too wide) and the nauseating Aria Les Paul that simply needs too much depth because of the neck angle combined with the headstock back angle. Everything else is very comfortable including the short scale MS-60 VW which doesn't seem particularly that much shorter than a strat.
Then I got to thinking, why not buy a good bass guitar case that would hold a Jazz a Precision or a Sterling. This would surely also be big enough for most of my other guitars too? Would this work or would little electric guitars run into some kind of trouble here?
Anyone out there have a bass case but also a few electrics that they could try inside to see what goes wrong/right?
"What's that terrible noise?" "Well, it's either the Hoover belt needs replacing or Marc Almond's on Jools again."
Mmmm you really want to get away with 1 case don't you? I guess it would be OK, but it might be a bit big and the guitars could move about. You want to get rid of the LP anyway so wouldn't be too concerned about that one. The ES335s body might still be too wide.
Yes, marit . I've given up on the 335 fitting any other case but it would be great if I could ship any of my others around using the same case. I'm hoping I'll find an acoustic case that will take any of my acoustics and the 335. I've got no room for endless cases. I like my guitars out on stands and hooks ready for 'the urge'.
