Guys, guys...

Mike, I just think that - even if the guitar is new old stock - if it originally was supposed to come with a case or bag (in this case a nice padded gig bag), then that should still be part of the sale. That's all.

And I stand by my comment that Taylor is being foolish not sending me a case that will only cost them around $50-60 plus about $20 shipping if it could result in another guitar sale of over $2-3K in the future.

And, as I also said - life goes on and there are lots of other things to be thankful for. 
Mike, I'm sure Taylor shipped the guitar with a case.
Trouble is, you didn't buy it from Taylor.
So I'm having trouble seeing how this is their problem or why they are being foolish.
See what I mean?
Makes more sense to talk to the seller, IMHO.

That's basically what Taylor told me (or implied) in their second response to me - basically, go back and take it up with the dealer/seller, and have a nice day.

It's fine - I'm moving on to other things. The guitar is nice, and plays well.

Thanks for all the replies.

That is what seems appropriate.  I would be asking the store for a decent hard shell case. The gig bags from Taylor are ok, but I would never use them for gigging with their guitars for the prices their guitars command.
