    Hello everyone. It has been LONG time since I have posted here, but thrilled that the forum is still active and going strong. I just acquired a '40s Epiphone Emperor with an 18" (plus maybe a quarter of an inch) lower bout for which I need a case. The guitar is just about 45" inches long. Does anyone have one with which they are willing to part? I will consider everything from 1940s vintage to a contemporary TKL and all points in between: the main caveat being that it needs to be fully functional and dependable. I am an active musician who gigs regularly and will be taking this to and from gigs. Secondarily, I prefer as little branding as possible, but will consider any decent option.

    I can/will pick up in the greater San Francisco-Bay area, if not Northern California. Otherwise, it will have to be shipped to me here in SF.

    Thanks in advance for your time and attention.

    Did you check out Gryphon Stringed in Palo Alto? They may have 18" cases for sale. Shipping a case costs about as much as shipping a guitar in a case.

    Hey Nick,

    Have you checked with Tony Marcus? He might have something around.

    Congrats on the Emperor.

    I recently purchased, and find to be excellent, this model case from this Reverb seller (who also lists on eBay) for my Super 400 CES:

    Now if someone would buy my 18 inch Excalibur it already has a good case.
