Epiphone Casino Case? HELP

Recommended Posts

Hello, my name is Antonio Monterroso. I live in Guatemala, Central America and I bought a new Epi Casino two months ago. The guitar is gorgeous, I am pretty happy with it. The thing is that it is impossible to get a Casino Case here in my country. (the dealer brings the guitar but not the case). And you see, there are no 335 cases anywhere in Guatemala. That's a fact. In fact, the employees of the guitar stores don't even know whats a hollowbody guitar/335.

 

So I've been trying to get a Epiphone Casino case online, tried Amazon and ordered one from this store called Brasswind and Woodwind that provides Amazon (never buy from them) and I found like 1 month later ( it was supposed to be shipped in a week) that its out of stock until who knows when.

 

The item costs 89 USD. and I've been trying to find one, I checked the Guitar Center site and it says that they are out of stock but it arrives on the 6th of November. Same said in the Brasswind and Woodwind site and they simply don't know when its arriving.

 

Checked other sites (music 123, musicians friend) and they appear to have all the Epiphone cases except the one suited for the Casino/sheraton/etc.

 

I've been trying to find other cases (other brands) that can fit a casino and have found a Gator case for 335 style guitars that is 89 usd as well but out of stock.

 

Found another case in Amazon that its 134 usd. (vintage horrible look and it takes 5 weeks to be shipped). I also have the problem that the item must be shiped to a P.O box in Miami. ( A lot of online stores do this but eBay for example don't).

 

There is a soft case that its 34 usd, its in stock.. I am tired, I am a musician and my hard gigging season begins in December. I really need a case.

 

Any good ideas? Help/ Thanks in Advance.

Hey Serge, and Brian, and anyone else looking for a case for the Epi Semi-Hollow.

I found Sweetwater has the same case for $10 cheaper, $79.97.

I just ordered one. Marcos Sanchez called me 5 minutes later to confirm the order. Man they run their business well.

The page mentions 11/06 availability - did you ask about that? I realize that's just 2 days from now, but it doesn't necessarily mean they'll actually have them, either.

Yes, he told me they should be in next week and that he would give me call when they arrived. They will ship it out to me that same day. I was going to wait until they did arrive before ordering. But since every place I have seen has that case for $89, I thought I would order it now in case they decided to raise the price with the new batch of cases coming in. And besides, I've had the guitar for 6 months, what's another week or two?
