Dear Ibanez, please reissue the old 80's guitar cases (but reinforced)

So I packed up the car for a jam and had to turn to my old guitar cases. The new ones are way to big, and bulky and yeah might be good for flights, but a majority of your customers dont fly often for gigs :P

How about reissuing the old cases but make em reinforced, and stronger. Id buy them for sure

The old cases can be put together in a mirror like formation and they snug nicely into each other like a Yin and yang..

Anyways, its just a thought and I prefer the old skool slimmer guitar case...

Current cases are overkill in size, have to lay them across diagonally in the trunk of my Audi A4. Also the team j craft prestige stuff is annoyingly redundant, we know if the serial number starts with F than its made in Japan, anymore than that is unnecessary. Team J craft stamp on the overlarge cases and back of the headstocks, prestige logo on the front of the headstocks... It seems that they are overcompensating for something.

I'm not a fan of prestige case either. My cases are all M100.
But I like the W50RG case ( the tolex look a like). Never find one brand new in the store..
it looks slimmer than the M100C.

Have you looked at the fender molded cases?
They might work for you,they have the same sort of shape.
