Rich-the guitar was store inventory, and it was the only one I could source in the UK when the GAS struck! I had to strike quickly otherwise I would have been waiting til May for the next shipment to the UK (or so I was warned-not by the store I bought the guitar from I must add). They had no cases that would fit the guitar, Ibanez or other makes. It actually came in a Fender box, with some bubble wrap, and a cheap bass gig bag, which the store, to their credit, gave me for nothing.
I'm still waiting for my tools, too!
