My WI66 pro came with a GC40 case.  some people complain that this leaves too much room for the neck to slide
up and down, but I don't really take my guitsr out much.

Other than that, there are the high end Les Paul type cases that the cases that the USA made Idols came in.

My WI64 is in a Hiscox case of some kind and fits fine. Sadly there's no model number on it but I could probably work it out by a process of elimination.

I just bought a Coffin Case Tantrum from Musiciansfriend.com on clearance.  I think it was about $50.  It's a nice deep case so it fits the Idol nice.  Widthwise, the guitar needs to be gently pressed down into the foam...it fits snug on both sides.  They include a little pillow which goes under the body to keep it flat.  I'm going to velcro that in so I don't have to worry about losing it.  My other generic case was too thin and the guitar would rest on the headstock.  These are much nicer.

My WI45 Idol fit perfectly in a standard Les Paul case.
