I have purchased what I consider to be upgraded cases for my LV-03-12 (Guardian CG-060-D) and my LV-03 (Gator GPE DREAD).



I am now looking for a similar case for my OM. The closest I can find is the Gator GPE Classic, which would be fine, but the dimensions are awfully tight:

Body Length    20.75"
Body Height      4.25"
Lower Bout     15.5"
Middle Bout     10.25"
Upper Bout     11.75"
Total Length   39.25"

Larrivee lists the dimensions for the OM-03 as follows:
 
  Upper Bout:    11.75"
  Lower Bout:    15.375"
  Depth:             4.25"
  Waist:              9.625"

So all of the dimensions are less than or equal to but that is an awfully tight tolerance and who knows whether Gator's and Larrivee's rulers might be ever so slightly different.

Has anyone tried this case on an OM?

Does anyone have any other suggestions? I really don't want to spend $500 or more on a $1000 guitar. I really don't plan to be flying with it but after my experience with the Martin, I really want to get good protective cases.
