Find a Ibanez case in London or around nowadays...

Hello guys from England;
I've been looking for an "Ibanez case" for my jem "bfp" but I can't find it anywhere in London... The guys in the guitar shops always have to order it and it is very expensive. (nb : I've already been in the Tothenam court road shops...)

So, don't you know where i can find one directly in a shop, without ordering and cheap if possible.

If not, what is the best case that could fit a jem guitar??? Any brand, any suggestion. Does anyone use another "case" instead of the Ibanez one

Thanx in advance..
JS

4 conclusions :
- Jemsiters from England are on Holydays;
- There is no Ibanez case available in or around London;
- You don't care (that I can understand)...
- I have to be more patient...

Ok, that's life, I'll try to find it by myself...
See ya!

Why does everyone around here expect answers to every question within hours?

Not everyone's life revolves around Jemsite.

Really

Anyway, about the case:
5th conclusion: I have no idea. I've never looked for a case around here.

Ibanez cases are priced as if they were made of gold in Europe
I simply wanted one for my UV, but the money is better spent on a full on Warwick metal flightcase here (same price).

I to have a BFP that I could not find a nice case for........Ibanez flites seem to be as rare as integrity in an English tabloid.....

Anyway - I ended up getting a 'Lite-flite' which is an excellent fit and virtually as good as an official Jem one.......

I got this from Sound Control for a very reasonable price - I'd suggest that you ask for a 2nd hand case where possible as 50 seems to get you a bog standard 'Freestyle' one-size for all type-thing. The case I got was 35 notes and is as good as new!

That is some very good news...
Thanx Markie boy and metalmarty!
Two brands to remember : "lite-flite" and "warwick"
"Sound control" is in Denmark street I think? I'll go there next wednesday anyway.
Thanx again, have a nice week-end.

yup

You are correct, we are all on holiday...

im actually in virginia right now.... off to washington tomorrow!

But yeah, jem cases arent readily available in the UK, you would have to order though headstock distribution, who would advise you of your closest retail outlet of such an item.

I do have an old M1000C lying around... but i think i needed it for something..although i forget what... mmm

Hello PerpetualBurn;
You're lucky. I wish I were on holidays too... It gonna happen in two weeks.
If you don't know what to do with your ibanez case... why don't you sell it to me (for a correct price) and you'll have some more money to travel???
Please, e-mail me ( [email protected] ) or answer me here... I'm living in London (zone 1).
Read you soon... I hope!

Hello R.L.L ;
Whaou... That's great ... Hope it'll work... I mean the trade and the "old neck joint*" in the new case... I do think so anyway because I've already got a m100c for my other jem : a floral who has the "onj*"...
Don't hesitate to keep in touch with me at that adress : [email protected]
Thanx again and see you very soon (I hope!)
