Where can I get a Mustang case?

Post by Logrinn » Sun Nov 12, 2017 8:34 am

I'm assembling a Mustang out of Warmoth parts and are going to need a case for it when it's finished.
But where can a get a case for a Mustang? Is there a SKB case or some such that will fit that you guys know about?
I've searched this forum and on Fenders website but there doesn't seem to be any mention of cases for Mustangs.
Any ideas?

I have a custom made Mustang thinline and it fits perfect in an ordinary G&G strat /tel case - have you tried one of those?

No, I haven't. Didn't know what G&G was until I looked them up on the interweb. $295 seems a little steep though.
And surely an ordinary Strat/Tele case is much too big for a Mustang? I got a 7/8 Strat (with a 24" scale Mustang neck) that I found a smaller case for, but that case is still just a little too big for it.
I guess I could get one of those flight cases with foam inside that you can cut out, but those are also quite expensive. And heavy.

Actually, I think the mustang is longer that a tele and/or a strat. Anyway, I have SKB jazz/jag case. It can fit Jm and Jags obviously, but it also fits my 24" musicmaster and my Squire Duo Sonic almost perfect.

Vintage Mustang cases by Victoria Luggage Co. are fairly common if you want to keep it traditional too.

I had a look around, but it doesn't look like they are in business anymore. Or ..?

in my experience sniping vintage ones off of ebay is actually cheaper than buying a knock off
i've gotten them for $30-$50 several times
i used to be cool

They sometimes blow out the modern black fender branded case. The only reason I have one is that they were £60 on amazon once and my dad got as a gift for me. Annoying thing is, they got no bit's n bobs pocket :-/

Now £60 would be more reasonable.
