Has anyone here found a case that properly fits a JTV69? It almost fits in my Strat case but not quite. The body shape is just enough different to prevent using that. I plan to travel with my JTV and I don't really want to use the Gig bag when I do.
Case For Jtv 69?

theres a few options in this thread:
Phil even has a link to the exact case that ships with the USA 69 models.

3rd post in the thread from phil:
You can buy the Strat/Tele G&G case (which is what the case the JTV69 comes with is) here: http://www.musicians...-hardshell-case
I don't know about the 59, though. I'm not sure what style case the Us version of the 59 comes with.
I did not see any 69 options there. That's why I started a new thread.

What Strat case do you have? The old molded cases that Fender used to use for the American Standards and Deluxes won't fit the 69, but the newer ones will fit the 69: http://www.musicians...ric-guitar-case
The G&G case will fit, too, of course. But I have tried my 69 in the newer ATA case Fender uses and it fits. It's a little snug around the body, but I'm sure after a while, the foam would loosen up.

I bought an SKB hardshell case that not only takes the JTV-69 perfectly, but all it's peripherals too (with the trem bar removed, of course). Cost under $100 ... check SKB's website. They definitely have several options.

... and lots of acoustic stuff

Thanks - sounds like I have a few options. I have one of the molded Strat cases for an American Standard from about 10 years ago. The JTV almost fits but not quite. The cases that are designed for both a Tele and Strat will probably work fine.

looks like a nice case, but the latches aren't TSA latches... might be important if you needed to put your instrument on a plane...
i actually like the TSA latches although they do seem larger than they need to be.
I ordered this SKB case from Sweetwater. http://www.sweetwate...e/detail/1SKB6/ They say it will fit and the latches look much better than the ones on the cheaper Fender cases.
