Since I bought my Rg 1570 prestige last year I've always thought I was given an inferior case with it and now what I thought has come to light in some pictures I saw on Ebay of the guitar I bought with the case I thought I was supposed to have been given.

The case I was given when I bought my guitar was a nice but basic hard case, the guitar lays inside it but the only indentation for the guitar is half way down and only for the neck to sit in width wise (about 4" X the width of the neck). The tool pocket inside the case is right under the guitar neck and there is no other slot for anything else. The case is big, rectangle and heavy but does have the word Ibanez written on it in the lower left corner of the front side. The case closes with cheap latches and locks with a cheap key, has no padding inside just cheap felt on the top and bottom.

The cases I've seen are rounded at the 4 corners and inside the padding looks deep and plush and looks to be indented in the shape of the prestige on the top and bottom so when you place your guitar in the case it kind of slides in nice and tight and doesn't move around at all. The tool pocket is to one side of the neck and the other slot for cables or music is to the other side of the neck. It closes with three nice heavy duty latches and has a combination lock.

If you own an Ibanez prestige and was given a hard case with it does yours sound more like the one I described as mine or the other one?

Thanks in advance.

Large guitar chain stores often separate the included case from the guitar unfortunately, but I guess you've found about that now.

Funny thing is - i have a Prestige case and mine is nothing you described above huh.gif I guess they are changing the models of cases all the time. Mine only has 1 tool-pocket, it closes with 2 latches and doesn't have a combination lock. Guitar lays perfectly in and doesn't move a millimeter. And it has rounded corners.

I have a prestige case, but mine is for a 20th anniversary so it's tolex wrapped rather than your standard fare hard plastic. It does not have rounded edges and has metal plates on each corner of the case. it has "Ibanez RG 20th Anniversary" painted on the case. It is plush w/ a form fitting contour of the guitar, the accessories pocket is underneath the neck. I can't recall if it has other gaps off to the side for additional accessories or not as I rarely use that case tongue.gif.

The 20th case is horrible, they should've just made regular prestige cases for them.

Yeah it feels pretty flimsy for sure, I guess it's attempting to look like a case you'd find in '87?

Might be, but they really should have made them better.
