Case for a Gibson ES-339

Absolutely true. It was nerve-racking carrying my Nighthawk around in a gig bag for the first couple of weeks after I purchased it. After you're use to carrying a guitar case "suitcase-style", you can't really adapt to taking the extra care of carrying a wimpy gig bag.

One thing to consider is that if the lightweight case looks to the untrained eye like a regular square hard shelled case then there's no chance the flight attendants are going to let you take it on the plane. They've got an unwritten rule interpreting the regulations about musical instruments, and it seems that they don't get quite as put out if they see a soft case. A CS-336 or ES-339 in a gig bag might fit crammed into the overhead (335 or Sheraton just misses). On the other hand, with a hard case you'll have to watch your guitar get handed down from the skyway to the baggage handlers where it will be tossed on top of the luggage in the belly of the plane. Your mileage may vary, to coin a phrase.
