The case my Ibanez Japanese Custom came in is rubbish-thin, flimsy case and it feels cheap too! I'd avoid Ibanez cases. Get yourself a Hiscox Liteflight case-they are brilliant and they're British made! You'll need a 'Guitar Case Model: STD-EG' for an RG, but give them a call and they'll tell you exactly which to order. They make them to order and they're tough as anything (the adverts show five or six men standing on top of one) and yet light-weight. For a little extra you can get one that's a bit different in colour, as I did.

The Ibanez M100c will take most if not all bashing fine.

My issue with the Ibanez cases is the thin outer skin. Its fine for taking loads spread over the whole surface, like other cases being stacked on top, but just pressing ones finger onto the surface makes it indent alarmingly and I'd hate to see what a screwdriver, or similar, dropped onto its surface would do. I think if you want to look after your beloved investment, just spend £100 on a really tough, long lasting and tested case-actually mine cost £80!

Thanks so much for your replies guys!

I liked the idea of BBB'S case most, but the problem was it was going to take a while to get to me.
so I just went with the ibanez M100c..

thanks again everyone

I have two ibanez cases that I'm about to mod by putting some travel luggage wheels on.

i have the m100c case that i keep my jem in, and whilst i was on holiday i left it on the floor next to a thick metal music stand, and when i got home off holiday, i found that the stand had actually fell right on top of the case, but didnt leave a dent, which shows these cases can take quite a beating.

Is it just just me, or does this case have something of a phallus theme?
