an LP case should do the job, it's a tight fit, but works for my Pilsen

Thanks man! But Pilsens I'm not very familiar with, so do they have the same body shape? Looks like it, but I'm not sure

welcome to the forum RRR21

the Pilsen is one of the US made Idols, so, yes same shape, although a little thicker.

Read this thread, about Idol cases...

Good luck with your guitar, come back after you get it and let us know how it's going. Using the search feature will bring up a bunch of threads on the WI-45.

Cheers

Hmmm. LP cases work? Hmm. Cool. I would want to tote my baby around in a hardshell case.
I'll look professional
Thanks for the info!

I don't know if the WI45 has the same dimensions as the WI64 - but my WI64 fits inside a SG case - it is actually a about 2 inches short in the case - but it fits.

My WI66 does NOT fit in either of my 2 LP cases.  The WI66 is too wide.  Anyone know what model Washburn case is made for the WI66?
