And allow me to add another voice of reason: As I have said here before and will keep saying as long as it takes - if it's worth playing, it deserves a real case. If you really want a gigbag, just carry it in a gunnysack; same (lack of) protection, plus Chuck cred.
Gigbags are the worst invention since pantyhose.
Well, I have lived in a big city (Chicago), and almost every gig I have ever worked has been as a a soundman or stagehand; yes, these days I put my well-cased guitars in my car - but i have also transported them on buses, on trains, and by foot.Lol! That's a hilarious comparison!
Let me disagree with you a little here!
I live in a big city where 2/3 of people can't afford cars, live in minute apartments and don't go on trips with their guitars (they only take them to their guitar lessons or to friends' once a week by bus. And most people don't gig). In that kind of situation, one quickly realises that bulky and heavy guitar cases that take the space of half a room and aren't foldable are a hindrance (bus drivers sometimes even forbid you to get on the bus with a big guitar case during rush hour, while they say nothing if you carry your guitar in a smaller gigbag).
So basically, here, guitar hardcases are a "necessary evil" that comes in handy once every five years in one's life. It should be like cars - rentable. And it should be easier to carry on public transport and to walk and climb / ho down stairs from one station to the next (wheels, shoulder straps, less heavy...).
But I realize most people here don't share the same lifestyle and don't mind storing guitar cases when they are not using them on a trip.
Hi what case is that pleaseI'm pretty sure the case does weigh more than the Casino, but the fit is snug and that make it worth using

Hi, it is this one. About $130 USD, I linked it above. You may be able to find it cheaper if persistent.Hi what case is that please
But to lug them around something else. I'll stay with the Reunion Blue for now. What do you think about the epi lite case?You definitely need a hard case for that. @Darkness showed the right one. I had one for my ES. Nice indeed.
I haven’t seen one, so I couldn’t say one way or the other. I know from experience that the TKL cases I’ve had for Les Pauls were lighter built than the Epiphone cases. And, the Ibanez cases for LP are lighter still. But I don’t know if Ibanez has one that will fit your guitar.Thanks I was going ti get a hard case
