    After hunting for years and not wanting to pony up for a nocaster case I managed to find this online and ordered 2 before they disappear.
    Fit is decent and the strat horn space leaves place for a strap. The handle is real comfy and should balance better than an original case, tweed is a fair yellower than the photos though...

    Wow that looks way better than the one I got from fender with my tele. I won't even use it, don't trust it to protect my guitar..

    Thanks for the model number. I've got a tweed rectangular case, but I love the look of the fitted case!

    OOOOH... very VERY nice looking case. Looks really well made too aye. Nice find and thanks for the info on where to find them.

    Can't decide if I want a "shaped" case or the more typical "suitcase"... my current TKL is a suitcase and I love it, but I really want a Tweed case to match my Tweed C50 and cause I just think they're so gorgeous, what better companion to a gorgeous guitar.

    So any particular benefits or disadvantages to a fitted case versus the suitcase style???

    Cheers

    Dave

    I got a Stagg case with my '70 (don't ask!) - its a floppy hinged fragile POS (the case, that is) - so.......... nice as it looks, what about the quality ..... really?

    It's pretty decent all things considered, not like older Stagg stuff (I used to dread the brand years ago) which could have been made on a different continent by a different factory for all we know. It's stronger than those generic black shaped cases from 15 years ago... those fail quick at the hinges & clips.

    @Dave
    The benefits for me is looks (don't think I have to explain) and size.
    These smaller cases are less clumsy and lighter, comfy to carry around and fit in your car and airplane overhead comfortably. They also lean nicely against the wall and corner. Some guys like the rectangle types for fitting in extra stuff but I am paranoid that one day a boss pedal will escape and smash my guitar. Plus all that crap is a PITA (heavy) to carry in an already heavy rectangle case. Better to put it in a bag on my shoulder.
