TJC Cases fits "too" well...?

Haven't really used the case for my RG3521 Before but I'm doing a gig this weekend so took the case out of the closet.

I have two caveats that "worries" me about these cases.

The case is so snug and it fits the body to the point where I cant have the strap on my guitar while in the case... In my other Premium case that came with my RG821 I can at least align the strap with the guitar body in the case.

The other thing I found out is that the guitar seems to be resting on the heel of the guitar body (by the bridge) and the neck... wouldn't that cause unnecessary stress on the neck joint?

in my World - wouldn't it be better to have the body sitting a little higher - the neck a little more "floating" and more of the resting pressure on the body?

your thoughts on this?

I take all the straps off of my guitars when I put them in their cases. I find that the snug fitting case keeps the guitar safe and sound when transporting. I wouldn't worry too much about the neck joint being stressed as the neck runs along a long support for the case.
