The feet on my stock case pushed through the bottom. What is a good replacement?

The '60s style vintage RIC case is about as excellent as it gets.Check it out at the Musicians Friend website.

Is that a 60's reissue? Or an actual old wooden one?

I had the same thing happen repeatedly to my SKB cases and didn't want to fork out the dough for the reissue case since I use a gig bag for most gear schlepping. I still wanted a case for gigs, however. If I wait for the right timing I can always get a good deal at GC, so I went with the Road Runner RRMBG case they carry. Just slightly longer than needed for a Ric but width is a perfect fit. Good storage pockets, and a strap that keeps the neck in place if you feel inclined to use it (doesn't seem necessary to me). Since I only had to shell out a little over $50 I felt good about it. I've been using it for a couple of months and have no complaints. In some ways it seems a lot sturdier than the SKB cases. Really the only thing it's missing is the molded interior.

These are great. What is the price of that vintage look case? It said email for price and I did about 8 hours ago.

They're $230 at Musicians Friend,which seems to be the lowest I've seen,these cases don't seem to be easy to find.
