    Looking for a road case for my ES 335, Les Paul Standard and a Mesa Boogie LSS 1x12......My stock case from Gibson is taking a royal beating!!! I just did a three week tour in Australia....lots of flights! I hate lugging my 335 through airports all the time.....Anyone know of some decent cases companies? Are ATA cases made of plastic or wood?

    Thanks for any input!
    peace

    How big is the LSS? And what do you think of the idea of putting the guitars together in a bigger road case?

    I'll measure what I've got in reference to the width of my 335...

    Anvil has some new lightweight plastic that they are using as an option in ATA cases, instead of wood, in order to remove weight. You could research that.

    Check out Calton cases - they're outstanding.

    Thanks for the input....I will check out those cases.....I more than likely will get individual cases instead of a multiple case because believe it or not a lot of times I only take ONE guitar! I never break strings....I know it can happen to anyone anytime but I just can't stand any extra baggage when traveling!


    Anyways!

    peace
