    Im having a custom erg built and would love to get a case that fits its somewhat unique shape.
    Any companies out there that built custom cases?

    Depends on how much you want to spend and what kind of case you want.

    You can probably grab an off the shelf Pelican case and just get a custom insert made, same with Gator and SKB. They all make generic cases that can be fitted with custom foam inserts. If you want to get fancy, custom upholstery is an option. Pelican will build you pretty much anything, there's a quote feature on their site.

    The one thing I'd recommend is trying to go local, even if doing the custom insert in an existing case. So see if there's a case outfitter in your area. You'd be surprised how many there are out there.

    Don't be afraid of makers that don't work with guitars specifically. Guitar cases are super basic compared to cases made for high end audio, video and photography equipment.

    I have no idea to be honest. Everything I've had to order from them has been more of a functional piece than an aesthetic one.

    Why not any case long enough and get some foam. Strip out the original lining. Trace around the guitar and neatly cut into foam.

    Voilla, moulded case.

    I'm going Pelican for the Padalka I just picked up.
    I don't want a nice guitar like this moving around in a universal type hard case.
    Cut the foam and forget it!
