    Can anyone here recommend a case for this guitar? It is too large for the regular Jackson RR/KV case. I looked at ESP, but would prefer molded over wood. I already asked Jackson, and was told that there is no official case for the model--just a gig bag.

    The internal dimensions need to be at least 48 x 19 in. The best that I have been able to find so far is https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002D079Y/?tag=sevenstringorg-20 but it is a bit spendy--especially if I need to buy the foam separately.

    I doubt that you find a molded case for this guitar. Thomann Europe has a case which is called "Xtreme" but the dimensions are slighly smaller than your needs. I got a Kelly 7 string in one of those and it was a perfect fit. It's also not that expensive.

    If you really need a bigger case than you probably have to build one yourself or just get the gigbag.

    Jackson are aware that the RRX and RRXT V's don't fit the standard cases and are bringing out a new case sometime this year (according to my local dealer who contacted their rep). I have the same problem, I've got the RRXT.

    That's good to know. I followed with the rep about custom models, and he suggested having one custom made by G&G, Gator, or SKB. Is there a size difference between the 6-string RR and RRX?

    The 6's are all the same from memory (current ones at least). The Jackson RR case is designed to hold all RR, KV and 6 string V artist signatures (It's even got the details for the Corey sig in it).

    gator extreme case is about the only option that I know of. haven't tried the old ohsc from Jackson, but the gator is the only that would hold my rrx-7 or kelly-7 or my jr-v 7.
