Default WTB? Avalon Sport case

GOOD NEWS/BAD NEWS

Good news is: I'm 100% New to Robin guitars and am considering purchase of an Avalon Sport as my first Robin.

Bad new is: It doesn't have a case so I'm shopping for an Avalon Sport case - ideally NOS or barely used. (Already PM'd Dave... reply pending.)

PLAN B: Would buy a Les Paul Jr case if I knew for sure it would fit a Sport.
All replies welcome regarding available Sport case or knowledge re: LP Jr. case fit.

Thanks!
Mark in CO

Default case

Stratfish:

I did not say "longer"......I said "larger".......

the body is about 1/2" wider all around the body.

So a "tight" LP case will not fit.

There are some 'universal" LP cases out there that fit LP's loosely and may work.....

just sayin'........

Good luck...!

Thanks Dave!
I saw that you had actually said "larger" when I re-read your reply once the caffeine hit my brain. Sorry about that! Realizing my error I deleted the post, but apparently not until you'd already seen it. Worked out to my benefit I reckon - now I know what to look for in a case fit. ~Thx!
