Sometimes they just do not make a case to fit. Often companies will produce a guitar that does not fit any of the standard sized cases line that almost every guitar store carries, They suggest using their softshell case.. Well softshell cases do not do well in moving vans and airplanes.
On the old site I recounted the modification of standard-line cases to fit resonators, and parlours as well as the weirdly shaped Seagull S8 mandolin.
The S8 job involved using pool noodles to provide a form to glue faux-fur. The result was snug pet-bed to fit the S8 in a standard Arch-top mandolin case.
The resonator job was simpler; using a standard classical guitar case, I just had to add a bumper at bottom end of case to make it snug. Much like Judson has done for his guitar. See Judson's Case Work :)
The Ibanez parlour guitar is small. Much smaller than an Ami. It floats around in the TRIC Parlour/Grand case. So I decided to create a fit in another standard classical case. This job requires noodle all around, shaved to various thickness, covered with that same faux-fur I got in a 3 for 1 sale I find the black fur on grey plush looks very nice.
So you see , it can be done, you can make a guitar case fit a slightly too large case. When desperate, even a couple towels could be the difference between a crack and a happy road trip.
