Re: JEM's and UV's now in the molded case ;///
I guess I'm missing something here, JEMs and UVs have never included a case, so, how is getting one in a case a downgrade? You still have the option to buy a better case if you want. I guess I'm different, but a good SKB type plastic case is better than a tolex covered case if you are gigging alot. They hold up better when they get thrown in the backs of cars, vans, or trucks and get beat around by cabinets, racks, etc... I'm not abusive on my guitars, but when I was gigging more (back in the old days...), and farther away, guitars got thrown in a U-Haul trailer with everything else and took a 3 - 4 hour ride.
I'm with the Dr too, the thoughts of a $3K list guitar shipping in a cardboard box is disturbing.
