Aloha everyone, I was wondering if I can purchase a new case for my Spoiler, and how much they might cost.

You can order cases from any Alembic dealer or from us. The retial price is $305. Cases can be shipped ground (but not to Hawaii!), but cost as much to ship empty as they do full since they go by dimensional weight. The shipping cartons are 55x6x22 if you're using rate calculators.
When you order, supply the serial number of your instrument and we'll find the right case for you.
For a flight case, we can make arrangements with our normal supplier. Otherwise, you can contact many of the flight case makers directly and send them a drawing. It's a good idea not to rely on any templates they have on file: most Alembics are quite different from one another. You also need to supply a side-view plan so they know about the peghead angle and where the peghead ends.
Our road cases start at about $900. These are ATA approved, with wheels and a lock. The interior is velvet lined and French-fit (sewn around the form for the guitar). These also have neck supports and a postive latch on the accessories compartment. They are nice cases.
