The case that came with my TB-1000S isn't original or spectacular by any means - nor does it fit all that good. Can Anyone recommend a rugged (gig-able) HSC in which a TB-1000S fits well in?

Perhaps even something with a little style...

I've been using a case that I bought from Musician's Friend so that I don't damage the original case; keep in mind that it is not an exact fit but it does fit the guitar well enough to keep it safe:

The other option would be to contact Kevin over at Electrical Guitar Company and ask him if he has anything that would fit your guitar.

I hope this helps,

Jay

Thank for the info.

I should have just contacted Kevin (figuring he's building me a guitar and replacement pickups for my TB-2000s).

Kevin has his cases made here http://www.ggqualitycase.com/custom.html

Earnie suggested this brand a while back when I couldn't find a case wide enough for my TB2000. You can trace your guitar on the back of a cut up shopping bag or wrapping paper or whatever and they'll make one specifically to fit it. You can specify where you'd like the neck rest or storage compartments etc. Plus they have tons of options for outer coverings and inner linings, hardware, handles--- mine has purple tolex on the outside and hot pink fur on the inside. Obnoxiously flashy.

They're really well made and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a case to perfectly fit their instrument. Mine was about $200 after shipping, which is pretty pricey, but not too pricey to protect an instrument as valuable as a Bean. They take about 2 weeks to be delivered.

So for reference - Kevin was able to get me a G&G, custom fit for a TB-1000S for $135, plus shipping. Not bad. My Jazzmasters are all in G&Gs of various types and I've never had a problem - so I've had good luck with the brand thus far.

Kevin is great to work with.

My TB2000 actually lives in an Anvil Flight Case (Which is really big, but what can you do? it fits and it is a safe place for it to dwell).

My TB case is EXACTLY the same as the case the Rickenbacker 360 comes in. I beleive the case is original as well. Dont know if this helps at all.
