    I'm looking to buy a case to fit the 1963 blue body Corvette in my avatar pic. I found a nice tweed G&G Fender case online that I like, but I'm not certain the Corvette will fit. The lower bout is 13 inches and at least some Fender cases list their lower bout width as 12 3/4 inches. Does someone here knows if my old Corvette body will fit into a new G&G case? Help!

    12"3/4 = 323mm
    13" = 330mm
    That's 7mm difference, 3.5mm by side : not much.

    IMHO, the lateral foam of the case will easily compress itself so you Corvette will just enter it perfectly.

    I would also check the internal thickness of that case : remember that Fenders have an "in-line" body-neck alignment, not "angled".

    A+!
