I have a question before I flippantly spend $100..

Would my SE Santana fit more snug in one of the Mira/Starla Hardshell PRS cases than the regular Multi Fit case?

Thanks in advance for any help...

Clueless about the case question, but may I ask how you like the guitar itself? And how's the neck width down in the cowboy chord area? Thanks in advance.

I love the guitar.

With that said, I removed every single piece of Korean hardware from the guitar and upgraded to all USA components because I liked it so much. Phase II tuners, PRS nut, McCarty pickups, McCarty switching drop in and US trem w/Mann saddles.

The neck feel is very comfortable for me personally and a big part of why I bonded with the guitar. Easy to play, very little left hand fatigue even after hours of playing. I believe it's a Wide Fat carve. Oh, and the 24.5 scale is darn near perfection. Makes my 11's a little slinkier...

What kind of feel/neck do you gravitate toward?

I have an orange SE Santana on order, so I am looking into hard cases too.
TKL told me their 8830 might fit (http://www.tkl.com/site_item_details.php?pn=TKL%208830&descx=TKL+Prestige+End-Bound+Electric+Guitar+Case), but they are not 100% sure.

If a PSR one will fit good, I would like to pick one up.

The PRS multi fit works well but has a little more wiggle room than i like and i think the Mira shape is pretty close if not the same.. The Mira/Starla case is well priced at an online vendor I used to buy from but i dont wanna waste the cash if it wont fit at all. Shawn? James? Bueller?

I just called PRS customer support and the Mira case will not fit.
He said even the US made Santana guitar is using the multi fit case.
I will probably order that one.

Looks like my guitar may make it by Friday too.
Dealer needs to set it up first, and I am getting the Planet Waves Autotrim tuners installed.

PS, anyone have a link to the multifit case here

I am not seeing the cases listed, and the guy I spoke with said I could either order one through my dealer, or buy it directly from PRS.

Thanks Shawn, I had seen it at that URL before, but I forgot how I got there.
I will ask my dealer when my Santana comes in to see if he can get one, or order direct when they are in stock.

Sounds good Corey. We should have more in stock in about two weeks.
