    I got a good price on one of these from L&M for my 50's Tribute:

    It'll be a 4-6 weeks to arrive from the warehouse, but I really wanted something with a nicer handle than the the normal plastic type found on most sub $200 cases. When carrying for more than 10 minutes, those handles totally kill my hands. Never tried this particular model before, but have been really impressed and more than happy with my other Gator cases. At about half the price of a Gibson branded case, I think it'll be worth the wait.

    I got a Gibson case for my 73 Custom (to be able to put the original away) at Sweetwater for 125.00... a few years back.

    MF delivered my SKB-61 in two days. Great case. Plenty of protection.

    I have two.. One for my faded.. One for my 2014 SG special. Not as complete on the neck support as the Gibson case and only three latches, but so far they have held up well taking out on gigs.

    If you're a cheap bastard like me, I just ordered a hardshell case from Guitar Center. It's made for a sg and is on sale for 47 bucks.

    While its hardly the best sg case, I'm sure it will do me just fine.

    TKL case is very nice and very strong. The Gator one looks very good too

    I ordered a CNB SG case from Rondo for my Special Faded back in '08 when I first got the guitar, and it's been a good case. Lightweight but sturdy. 50 bucks.
