    Hi folks..
    So, I have recently acquired a Hamer Firebird, that has no case. Can anyone recommend a case that the guitar will fit (correctly) into? I havnt tried a Gibson Firebird case, so not sure if those will work.

    Any input is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Take it to your local music store, if they have a case on hand, then you'll know if the Gibby case will work.


    Gator made a case that would fit ANY guitar- the odd shapes, like FB, Explorer, V's and such, but it was a massive case to carry around.

    Dunno how similar the shape/dimensions of a Hamer are to a real one, but I very much like the SKB-63 for my FB. Less bulk than the "aircraft-carrier flightdeck" sized rectangular ones and very good headstock protection. I see thery also offer a semi-hsc SKB-SC63 for slightly less $$ and maybe lighter, too.

    IF it'll fit the gibby case, buy the epiphone version. Same case, cheaper covering but I love them (and for 75-80 shipped from musicians friend bucks hard to beat).
