JCustom 20126 Guitar Case

I got a J Custom 20126 last winter. It's an amazing guitar, but I've had only one nagging concern about it. It's about the guitar case it came with.

It's a custom TKL case that came with the guitar, with the purple satin interior. The guitar case is stored lying flat, face up.

The concern I have is that it seems that there's a lot of unnecessary pressure on the guitar neck when you store the guitar inside. The guitar doesn't lie flush with the case like the Prestige guitars do in their cases. Instead it lies at about a 15 degree angle. There is a layer of padding at about the middle of the neck (about 12th fret) and a cradle that holds the neck where the headstock and neck meet. There is a mound of padding under the two "horns" of the guitar, but there seems to be be more contact pressure at the neck rather than the body.

This is just what I've observed. It's been about 6 months now with no issues, but I'm just concerned that there will be bowing problems in the long run if I store it in the case like this.

Any other JCustom owners, or anyone with a guitar case like this, that can give me some info/reassurance?

It's a poor design, but there isn't enough pressure applied by the padded top to do any harm.

Yeah, I thought that too. The first case I got wouldn't even close properly, and I had to go back and get a new case. Kinda makes me second guess the craftsmanship at TKL.

Do you think it will still be ok to store the guitar in the case, lying flat, for the long term?
