Gig bag/soft case for RG


I have a 1st generation RG550 and am looking for a decent but not pricey gig bag or soft case for it. I have the original hard case and the latches are getting wonky. It still works fine for storing at home but I don't trust that the latches will open when taking my guitar out. I don't need a hard case for the situations I take this guitar into so I was looking for a bag or soft case . I have Road Runner soft case that works decently for my strat and tele, but doesn't have clearance for the angled head stock on the RG. I'd hope to avoid buying something online only to send it back and my local GC has only the stat / tele comparable stuff right now. Any help would be awesome. Thanks !

Yup, the cheap bags are too short/small. I'm partial to Gator the GT is a confirmed fit

Use the CASE ADVISOR if needed, figure 39.5" for the RG with strap button

I REALLY like the Ibanez Power Pad gig bag. They're pretty good and inexpensive. I got two. One in black and one in tan. Retail is about $35-40 typically depending on the color.

Thank you both for the suggestions. Sorry for the delay in responding, had some password issues! Plan on shopping for one this weekend.
