    No clear info (yet) available on which aftermarket hardshell case fits this little beauty. (2014 SGJ) Have heard that the Road Runner RRMESG cases are not so great (as far as fit, neck support and the headstock angling up into the top of the case. And then there’s the SKB 1SKB-61 which might be a tight (but better) fit? I’ve got a line of one of the SKBs but it’s an older one without the TSA locks, etc. But I am tempted. It’s a long distance sale so I can’t check the fit.

    Any help here greatly appreciated. AND NO, I don’t want to pay Gibson or even Epiphone new HSC prices.

    Thank ya.;)

    Personally I would buy the Gibson case. So I guess I'm no help. Lol

    The TKL mention above is who makes the Gibson cases so that would be close (good tight fit). Still gonna cost more than the Epi SG case, @ $99, I believe.

    Good luck in your endeavor. :smile:

    Gibson SG case.

    Even if its $100 more, its worth it.

    You'll know its the best there is.

    Get all the 800 numbers and call around for the best price delivered.

    The sooner the better, for your guitars sake.

    Thanks everybody!

    That Douglas EGC-450 SG case from Rondo was very tempting but @ $90.00+ (after shipping, taxes, etc.) I think I’m going with a “B stock” (returned) TKL 8826 (and cross my fingers that it fits the SGJ properly).

    And while I’d love an original Gibson case, horrific budgetary constraints after this year of being “guitar buying insane” …simply won’t allow it.

    Many thanks, again.

    You found a TKL 8826? I've been looking everywhere for one. Have a link to somebody selling new ones? I have the 7826 and its fits great but I'd like to upgrade.
