    Looking for a new case for my Ibanez S7420FM

    Hello people

    I need some help. I currently have an Ibanez S7420FM with it's original case but the thing is that it's not a very good one and it causes scratches in the finish in one of the sides just below the tone nob.

    So I'm looking for a new one and I would like some help in choosing a good one that won't damage my guitar. Also, I'm flying to Cologne in a month to play Euroblast (very excited about that!) and I'm a little afraid with getting my guitar into the cargo of the plane.

    A local luthier from my town recommended me these, any thoughts?

    My main concerns are:

    Would my guitar fit ok?
    The plane thing

    Thanks in advance!

    In my experience Ibanez j.custom cases would be your best bet, but only if you can find one made for an S-series. Those ones have inserts in the case to support the body. Because of the curved back any other case will have some movement which is a Bad Thing when flying. Check ebay!

    Thank you very much for your recommendation Stich. I've been looking on ebay but only founded this:

    Etui IBANEZ Guitare S SA PRESTIGE Custom J CRAFT case NEUF | eBay

    I've been looking into the Ibanez cases too buy they are more expensive than the Gator ones. They are these:

    Ibanez - MP100C E- Git. Case f. RG, RG-7, RGD-/, S, SV, SA, JS, FR : Estuches y fundas
    Ibanez - Case M100C Black : Estuches y fundas

    Apparently both of the cases are designed to fit an S series but since I've had bad experiences with the original case of the guitar I don't know what to think.

    I'm still looking into the Gator GPE-Elec-Tsa case, experiences anyone?
