I reached out to Hiscox about a new Excalibur hard-case. They said they can make one but there would be tooling cost. The case with additional tooling was quoted $214Shipping to the states is steep, quoted $185, but so is the price of replacing a fine instrument. Not sure if anyone else is interested in getting one but now may be the time to inquire. The overall price may go down if enough interest is in the market. They said they could make one as soon as late January. I’m about to reach out to them again. 

I have a down payment on my first Vigier guitar with a U.S. dealer. I have been interested in a Excalibur Custom HSH since I saw a Tina S. video. Can’t wait to get mine. I’m sure the gig bags are awesome but a hard-case is required for me. My family is crazy. Nothing of value is safe, lol.

Hiscox replied to my email. They will be able to make it in February. If you want one too, specify if it has a Floyd. They said this is useful info.

I’m hoping someone with experience can chime in. When Hiscox sent me the pre-invoice of the case I noticed a description of:

1 EF-BIGSBY-B/S
Vigier Excalibur with Bigsby Electric Guitar Case-

I replied asking if this was correct. I figured this was an internal shop description for manufacturing purposes.They responded it has been a wile since they made one and they weren’t sure. This was their response:
“We understand the Floyd Rose can be unscrewed, so this may be the solution but, can you tell us how high the tremolo arm is from the top of the guitar and how long the arm is please?  We will check it further.”

Are the cases the same across all Excalibur models? I am waiting for a Custom with the Floyd. Is the case lid different for Floyd guitars? It would be nice to keep the bar on the bridge but not a dealbreaker. Is there a definitive answer?
Thanks in advance.

We never made the case with the bar installed, the bar is always removed. There was one case for all Excalibur. Our reference was *H-CASE-EXCALIBUR
