Dimension IV 6-string Case Wanted

Post by buck1108 on Fri Jan 22, 2016 2:02 pm

Hi,
I'm looking for an original, clean Westone case for a Dimension IV (6 string guitar),
clean and free from major tears or interior stains, etc.

Thanks!

Ooooh, good luck with that!! Smile I suspect those in here with Dim 4 cases actually have a Dim 4 in said case!!

You could make one?! I've made a couple for pointy guitars: and if I can do it with two left hands, then just about anyone can!!

Failing that, there's a Gator case for just this purpose with a selection of internal blocks though it is quite expensive, at least down this way!!

I agree with corsair, it's a shot in the dark but Ya never know....
Also you can buy a case and gut the insides, spray glue some foam pieces cut to fit you guitar / replicate the orginal, and spray glue the fabric of your choice to finish it off😀 but I'd ask for the length/width of the orginal case from a member who has one befor going this route.

Thanks very much for the input on this!  Smile  Yes, I know that the Dim 4 cases are rare things.  I got my Dim 4 without the case, but it was/is in such nice shape for a pointy guitar. 

Are Dim 4 cases similar (in size) to the seemingly more common Dynasty cases?

Thanks for the great tips! 
Does anyone here have one (with the dimensions)? 

I had thought of using a Dynasty case, with re-cut foam, if that would work.

A Dean Razor-Back case holds my Terminator if you can find one of those maybe. Just remove the logo Twisted Evil

I have a feeling that the pointy cases are appreciably bigger dimensionally than standard cases; I do know I couldn't find anything locally big enough at reasonable cost for my APII U-60 or Electra XV-1, hence I built my own.

Did you build it from the 'ground up,' or modded from another case, etc? 

The thing about the Dimension IV is that, unlike some other pointy guitars (flying v, etc) that are fairly easy to stand against a wall, amp, etc., the Dim IV has that slanty stance which begs for a case, etc.

Yep, go to whoa. I didn't share the building of the cases as I didn't think anyone would be interested!! 

I have 3 pointies that won't stand on their own, and it irks me to have guitars lurking in their cases, so I do try and have them out on display from time to time. I use Woodies guitar hangars as I reckon they're a step up from neck hangars...

sorry about the lousy pics, but…

a dimension 4 will not fit in a dynasty case

Dynasty case on top, is about 3" shorter
outside measurements for the Dimension 4 case - 17 1/2"W x 47 1/2"L x 3 1/2" D

Re Dimension IV Case Wanted

Post by rebuild on Tue Feb 16, 2016 1:51 am

I have to go along with Dimension IV Addict's suggestion about a Dean guitar case...I purchased a brand new Dean case about 2 years ago (model unknown) at my local Guitar Center, took it home and it fits all my Dimension IV's better than the original Westone cases. It's about 5 or 6 inches longer than the Westone cases, but the fit is incredible. Really holds the guitar in place much tighter than the original cases. It was on clearance at GC, and it was towering over the other guitar cases in the clearance pile,(that's how I noticed it), so I checked the interior and just felt like a Dim IV would fit and I was right. Fits like a glove like it was made for the Dim IV. Don't know what model it is though, as I do not know much about Dean guitars and the case I am speaking of is in the back of my pile here at home behind 41 other cases and 2 synthesizers. It's late at night and I don't want to wake the wifey trying to dig it out. But yeah, check into some Dean cases.

To be more specific I was told the case was from a Dimebag Stealth Series..
And it does fit the X4's (if I was told the truth)

Hope this helps, but check it out if you have the chance.
