Hey everybody!

Loving my PRO 2! Now I need a case to keep it safe! Anyone have any recommendations?

Thank you.

I picked this one up for $150 at GC. Fits the Pro2 with another few inches of extra space for cables, a pedal, etc.

Does it fit the width? Gator spec is 12.5", Pro 2 is 12.8". That's the only thing stopping me from buying this case. If it really fits, I'm in.

It fits great! I bought it for a cross country flight, made it there and back with no issues.

Any love for the SKB? It has those weird velcroed corners instead of padding. Looks the same price as Gator's but with better looking exterior to me.

Those of you using the gator case (GKPE-49-TSA) - how did you make it fit? I picked one up today. The PRO 2 is ever so slightly too deep. Were you able to compress the foam a bit to allow it to fit? The foam in my case is fairly rigid.

I just bought the gator case today. It's snug but it works. I moved the top foam pieces so that it would fit a little better.

I picked this case up as well, but I feel it is too tight for my P2.
Width is fine, but it's missing half an inch in the other direction.

After using it for a gig once, I felt much more torsional flex than before.

Not sure i I should cut the foam pieces of just find a case that fits better :)

How did you get this for $150? They have it listed at $199.
