Post 2K5 PMG301 Case.
How do you guys feel about the case they are including in the list price? From what I've seen, it looks like a M100 but without the butterfly style latches. I personally HATE SKB cases. I've never had one that wasn't a complete piece of junk. The latches and hinges always break or pull out, and there's no "stuff" box for strap, picks, strings, etc. The list price between 04 and 05 jumped approximately $169, the list price of the UV1000 case. With that increase, do you think we should get the UV1000 case? --Jason

All my PGMs (except anniversary) came with the M100.

Here's a little write up from Rich (IbanezRules.com)

This sucks. All JEM and UV'v will now come standard in the new version of the Chinese made M100 molded "Prestige - J Craft" case that are the "free/included" case with every Prestige guitar. You can't even option out of it for an upcharge, because the molded is included "free" from the factory. To get the UV1000, you have to buy a UV1000 seperate altogether.

Will this lead to the demise of the UV1000? Probably. Although it's not slated on the "discontinued" list right now, how long can it survive if they're going to give you a "free" case with the guitar.

[*Free* - right, the price increases alone are well over the full list price of an M100 to begin with, so as usual, nothing in life is "free"]

What fraction of cost should the case be?

A PGM is $1000.00 and the case is $90.00.

How much more is a top-of-the-line case?

I hate all SKB products. Including their racks. Ya git what ya pay fer.

My LPS came in a nice TKL case.

My HD28 came in an SKB that cracked at the hinge so I replaced it with a TKL, very nice. Lots of latches.

I have an old destroyer that came in a nice case, it's not plastic anyhow.

I got a new UV1000 for my PGM800 a few months ago. List on it is $169, but my local store got me one for $120. I would have paid full list on it just because they are so well made, and fit the guitar so perfect. I told them today to order me another one for the custom PGM I'm working on. There are guys that swear by the SKB stuff, but I just don't see it. I had a plastic case completely came apart on me once. From less than average handling! If you were in a working band I don't see any way one of those things would hold up. I just feel like at the prices Ibanez is charging for top of the line guitars, case included, they should send them in the best case they have. --Jason

I like the snug fit of the M100, but I prefer the construction of the UV1000. Jason listed and paid the standard price for a UV1000.

Check out www.americanmusicsupply.com
Last I remember, the UV1000's were 99.00....shipping at the time was free also.

AMS still carries the UV1000 for $99 with free shipping, but they are out of stock. There is also a $6.95 Oversize UPS fee. Still not a bad price though.
With this other case being standard now, you know it's only a matter of time before Ibanez discontinues the UV1000. --Jason

Sad, but unfortunately true :-(

If this happens....is there a possibility for an EKG case? Hmmmm?
