    i recently stumbled upon a 2001 New Jet and like it a lot. It cam with a gig bag. Any suggestions on a case that will fit this guitar? Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Both the Gretsch G6238 and Gretsch G6238FT cases should do the trick. Congrats on your acquisition and post pix!

    A Epiphone 335 style case fit my 3161 just right. Not sure of the Jet dimensions though.

    Jets fit perfectly into an Epi Kat case. LP cases are too small. I've used the 335 case for my 3140, too. Prices are great as well.

    The 6114 has bridge posts rather than wood mount? If so the neck angle is more acute similar to a les Paul so maybe a case that fits pro jets, rather than proline jets, may work

    How about some pictures of the New Jet? Unless I missed them.

    I saw this New Jet a while back that someone refinished. I love the color they did but I bet it was a lot of work. I think it came from the other G Forum.

    Call or go to the Sweetwater site. They gave me excellent advice finding the right case for my 5422.

    I bought a case for my acoustic at Sweetwater. I did a chat session and the agent not only found the perfect case but offered a discount as well.

  10. hi Scott, welcome to the New Jet club. when I first got my New Jet, I got a regular Duo Jet case from Willie's American Guitars in St. Paul, Minnesota. it's a little tight, but it works fine.
     
  11. it looks like they changed the original pickups, too. nice color, though.

  14. originally, they didn't. they were sold through Guitar Center and Guitar Center sold them without the case. I'm guessing in order to make make more money by selling the case separate. so, a lot guitars went without cases. mine was one of those, also.
