    I'll probably get one of the former for my cheap Rogue VB-100.

    Read the reviews though, both models need to have the neck support trimmed (which should take less than 10 minutes from the descriptions).

    There isn't much of a description on the samash site, no reviews yet, can't tell how they compare.

    I bought my Icon case from Sam Ash and it fits perfectly without alteration.
     
  5. What's the construction quality like on those?

    Thanks.

    Solid -- a smaller version of my Epiphone Zenith case. Definitely not reinforced chipboard. It;s plush lined and the latches, hinges and handle are solid.
