Hi Göran,

I do not have any case for sale, but you can use an ordinary Hiscox case which you adjust a little by stepping on it on the inside where the alto guitar will not fit into the case. The inside of Hiscox cases is made of a sort of soft plastic which will easily yield to such treatment.
I have an adjusted Hiscox case myself for one of my two alto guitars.

Best regards,
Sten

Thanks very much for the info Sven!

I can see on their homepage that they have three models. Which one did you choose, and did you get it in Sweden or order it from England?

Hello Göran,

I bought a used alto guitar with the case included, so I do not know which Hiscox model should be used.
Probably the Hiscox people know, because many alto guitar builders and owners use Hiscox cases. For example Roger Strömberg, the Swedish luthier, delivers his instruments with a Hiscox case.

Hi Goran,
I bought something like this from ebay:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/High-Quality-Deluxe-Classical-Guitar-ABS-Flight-Case-/250664236493?pt=UK_Guitar_Accessories&hash=item3a5cc0b5cd#ht_1552wt_902

The body fitted perfectly and the neck area is wide enough to make internal adjustments like Sten suggested. The padding is usually polystyrene so you could use a hot iron to mould it to size or what I did was slit the cloth and remove surplus polystyrene with a sharp knife. These cases are not hiscox quality but are adequate for domestic use. If you are a gigging pro I would go for a hiscox.
