Looks nice :thumbs

I think any Fender-type rectangular case should work. I'd take it to the next shop and try it out right there.

Welcome. Pretty much any case for Strat-style guitars with angled headstocks will do the trick. Just choose a brand like Gator for example.
Practice cures most tone issues.

This thread covered a few options. You don't have to worry about the depth of the case with your Focus because you don't have a tilt back headstock.

The top case is a basic Long and McQuade case (presumably made by TKL?) and should work:

More clearance needed in body area due to Floyd.

Good looking fiddle, BTW! :headbang
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

Nice 3000 and welcome aboard. I always thought that color was cool, but you don't see many of these around.

Did you remove the middle pup or was it like that? Just curious ... I have a Pacer Deluxe, and I use the middle pup a lot, but I've seen other SuperStrats where the middle pup was gone, so I wondered what was the reasoning. Cool color, very uncommon!

I remove de pup and made a cover with a piece of white plastic.
The pups are dimarzio paf and dimarzio chopper.

Thanks for the replies.
I´ll update the thread with pics when I buy the case.
