J Craft hard case.

I just bought a JS1200CA. Nearly new and almost mint. Came with an Ibanez MC100 guitar case. Does anybody know if the Ibanez cases with the red lining are available in the UK?

I think Cottam Guitars sells them.

Re: J Craft hard case.

You can't buy J-Craft cases seperately ... so if a dealer has them, it's because he cheated some customer out of the free case. Besides, the 1200 looks better in the blue case.

my 1200 came in the original J-Craft case i bought in UK. Ordered from net so the crafty local guitar shop kinda person doesnt get chance to strip it down I guess.

Re: J Craft hard case.

The first year was before the Team J-Craft, and didn't come with the case. After that, they all come with the J-Craft case. Some dealers strip them out to sell for more money.

Re: J Craft hard case.

As much as some like to rip on Guitar Centers far & wide, when I received my JS1200, they let me cut both shipping boxes open, rather than pawin' up the guitar before I got there.

Then again, I paid cash when I ordered it.

Re: J Craft hard case.

Thanks for the advice. Max Cottam has advised me that the case can only be obtained with the guitar. Mine had a standard Ibanez case so I can only assume that the case was swopped with another at some stage

Ryanb, it's all a matter of personal preference. To me the 1200 looks better in a red lined case. But I know I'm being fussy as the guitar is in a very good quality Ibanez hardshell case and the guitar is fantastic!

I'll swop if someone has a red-lined case

Re: J Craft hard case.

Did you inquire with the original seller about getting the wrong case? What is the serial number on it? It is possible you have a NOS guitar and they actually gave you the case for free when it actaully might not have come with one. Just a thought.
