Question about a hard case for a SE245 ( shawn?)
Ok the new SE 245s are built a bit different than the SE singecut. The older SE singlecut would fit in a LP case or even a USA Singelcut case. Reason being the body was thinner near the neck thus the neck had a back angle on it. one reason you also see all LP cases with foam support near the upper bout as the neck has a back angle.
NOW the new SE 245 has a thicker body and has NO back bow. if you lay the guitar on the floor on its back the neck is straight off the top. parallel to th floor. this will not work with ANY LP case withthe added padding as it causes the neck to stick up out of the case.
SO in light of this so far from what I can gather with all the dimensions i have this case here should work http://www.gatorcases.com/p/16136-220/gwe-elec
Does anyone have any experience with this case for fitting the se245 or what are they using. I wish the neck angle was the same as the USA or older SE singlecuts as then any LP case could work.
This is my boys. One reason I don`t like the gig bag is the constant retuning( major) every time you pull it out of the bag as the tuners always get moved.
