JEM Cases (molded & shaped) - Help with fitting a JEM case

I'm well aware that there are countless cases that will fit a JEM or UV that you can get from Ibanez, but they're rectangular and I HATE THAT! I reckon if I'm plunking down two grand for an axe then I can be picky about the hardshell I keep it in. MF sells an SKB case (shaped and molded) that "fits most electric guitars," does anyone know if a JEM will fit in these cases? Thanks for help in advance

JEM Cases (molded & shaped)

If they offer the M100c molded Ibanez case I'd go for that. A Jem actually fits in it better than it does in a UV1000c, it just doesn't offer as much protection. *The SKB will work though, it will fit, but not as form fit as a M100 or UV1000.

Also, SKB cases were designed for 22 fret guitars and Jackson style head stocks. The Ibanez head stock will actually poke into the foam and leave about 1/2" between the outside of the case and the tip of the head stock. One good bash on that end of the case and you have a damaged guitar.

I would also go with the M100c.

The M100c looks like it'll "wear" better than the 1000 and it does look cooler because of the huge molded Ibanez logo.

While talking about the M100C hardshell,
Does a RG7-421 fit in there?

It will 'fit', but the tip of the headstock will be touching the inside of the case. Same fit for all 7's. Not recomended.
