    i finally received my new Electric XII before Christmas after a 10 month wait, it’s LPB and I’m loving it so much.
    And so I set out to find a hard shell case, ideally a Fender / G&G case if possible, all were not suitable as being too narrow, too short or for one reason or another, finally contacted G&G directly by email and enquired if the could build me one - yep sure, $400 shipped
    If I had an original from the 60’s that would be ok but it’s half what the guitar cost, so no go there, finally the nice folks at Andertons (my local store!) put up with me trying nearly every case they had and we found a ABS hard shell bass case by Tourtech, not a perfect fit but I felt confident to buy the case and alter it to suit (with help from My wife on the fabric) we cut away some polystyrene to allow the guitar to lay flat an added some padding to fill the area behind the rear strap pin - job done!
    I hope this is helpful to other owners as it’s a good compromise and although it’s a bass case it’s not too large. Images to follow later

    Too bad we're so far apart....I bought this on impulse the other day and while waiting for it to be delivered, I started to get the feeling that it wasn't what it was advertised as (strat/tele case), but I thought it would fit my Jazzmaster. Wrong. So I posted on TDPRI and someone thinks its a Fender Electric XII case. So I might be doing some modifying myself since it's an oddball.
