Hi Folks,

Sorry to resurrect this thread but I am considering a new case for my 66' Electric XII. I HAVE the vintage case, but it slops all over inside and is no good for transport- I move the thing around in a gig bag which is better.

I contacted G&G but haven't heard back.

Those of you with G&G XII cases, do you have any photos? Does the guitar sit SNUG inside and not slop around?

Thanks :-)

I have two G&G XII cases and both fit the guitars very snugly without them bouncing around whilst moving. Those cases are a good investment.
Yes, that's a Marauder in my profile pic. No, it's not for sale.

Thank you for the feedback! Are there any photos of these cases online?

Mine is a close fit, are you sure it's the case that was meant for it? Not a bass case?

You can also use a SKB Jazzmaster case. My XII fits in there nicely!

What are the external dimensions of your XII case? Although not as sturdy as the reissues it should be a good fit for the guitar. It's not a P/J Bass case is it?

Hey Y'all. Just to clarify, it "FITS." Like it's the correct case and the guitar fits inside and the case closes, it just doesn't keep the guitar very safe. Like, the guitar rattles around inside and the headstock bangs against the sides because the neck support is just flat. The case doesn't hug the guitar like new cases do. Basically, a gig bag is better, and that's no good when you've got such an expensive guitar.

I e-mailed G&G and haven't heard anything back. Are they usually pretty bad about custom orders?

OK, cool re. your original case.

G&G are usually pretty good - give them a DM on Instagram and they'll probably respond on there pretty quickly.
