    Hi all. Looking for a case to fit a John Lennon "1965" Casino. When I bought it from a used store, it came with a third-party case that doesn't quite accommodate the headstock properly. I guess it's because the headstock angle is 17 degrees (vs 14) and also the fact that it's elongated. So when it's in the case, the guitar actually rests on the tip of the headstock, not properly supported on the neck rest, which is not a good situation.

    I'd love to find a matching proper brown case (with the pink shroud, even better), but any case that fits it properly is a step up from what I have.

    Appreciate any suggestions or leads.

    Thanks
    -Jim

    I should add, I tried contacting Epiphone, but they never got back to me.

    Thanks Davis, I think that one looks like it'll fit a regular MiK casino, but the JL has a 17 degree angle on the headstock rather than a regular 14 degrees. So I don't think that would work.

    Also, I'm in Canada. No GC here. :)
