I picked up a 1967 Coronado II a couple years back and the case was covered in duct tape. I hadn't bothered replacing it until the other day I noticed the top was separating and really is not offering any protection.

Any good recommendations for a good replacement case? I thought this thread might also apply to anyone who plans to pickup one of the Coronado reissues in the near future as well.

I like the look and price on that case. Have you tried a Coronado in this case?

How does a Coronado II body shape compare to a Gibson ES-335? I see a couple a of cases that fit 335s as well.

I'd recommend the Mono M80 Semi size case. A bit pricey but considering you're going to be putting a vintage guitar in it I'd think it'd be worth it. They're really good cases. After the guys at music college saw mine a whole bunch of them went out and bought the same case for their guitars.

They've also got a lifetime guarantee, so when one of the internal pouches got a rip in it (totally my fault for stuffing it way too full), Mono shipped me a brand new case to replace my original one.

I use the case everyday to take my guitar around the city and it's been a complete lifesaver, so much easier to transport than a hard case and it offers pretty much the same level of protection.

I'd also been looking for a case for my Coronado (66') I'd heard the 335 sized cases will work but great to hear that verified. Thanks!

I have a gator 335 case and it is much too large. have a bunch of fabric stacked at the bottom. The main problem is the difference in neck/headstock body angle alignment. but it works

^ same deal for me. The Coro body is way thinner. I have a load of padding behind mine to hold it in place. I have an old Westone case that my 330 copy came with and that fits much better.

I have also have a Gator 335 case but it's a nice, snug fit. The body just barely fits and the angle of the neck support is intended for an angled headstock but it all fits nicely and securely. The one I have is bright pink on the inside and brown on the outside (what the MyLesPaul types somewhat disgustingly refer to as the 'cali girl' case).

That's the case I have and would recommend it. Which Gator case do you have, cobascis?

i was lucky enough to find an old italian VOX case that fits it like a glove.

but that might be of little help for you, sorry...
