    Any standard strat-shaped case should work, assuming you dont have the baritone version. After that its a matter of preference.

    Tip for baritone seven guitar: bc rich bass case. there bodyshape is often so wide that you can easily fit a normal guitar in there.

    I dunno about ESPs, but the Ibanez 7s have the same sized bodies as their 6 strings. The conklin gt7 i have is roughly the same size as my ibanez bodies, as well.

    You have to go with the guitar to the store, because every producer has its own dimensions :agreed:

    yeah but not the same neck. the bc rich bass case can fit a 32 inch bass, so if you have a guitar with a normal shape but lets say a 28.625 inch scale, you can fit it into a bc rich bass case without problem, Often that's cheaper and simpler then finding a baritone case (at least over here).

    not necessarily. the bodies are the same size, as you pointed out, but the headstocks on 7 in-line 7-strings are 1-2" longer. so make sure the case has plenty of room in the headstock cavity--i've seen strat-shaped cases with tight headstock cavities that won't fit a 7-string.

    Hm, i've never had any problem fitting any of my ibby 7's in a generic case. Well, assuming its not so strat specific it has a shaped headstock area, a generic guitar case SHOULD work.

    I just got a coffin Bass Case, the A-7's body is huge so it really needed it, plus there'd be extra room for the extended scale of the SC.
