Having trouble finding one that fits it snug. None of the Guild cases on the Cordoba site will. I bought a Guild case on Sweetwater but ot was too big. Every dimension was a 1/2" larger than listed. NO bueno. I have looked at Gators, TKLs, SKBs and now at Hiscox from the UK.

The case I got with my recent DV52 purchase fits the G37 like a glove, but has no number in it.

Any ideas out there?

I've never owned one, but I have heard good things about the Silver Creek cases. They're basically a knock-off of Martin's high end "Geib" style case, of which I own a couple. They're heavy for sure, but do an excellent job of protecting the guitar, and the fit for a dreadnought is very snug. For $129, it's a pretty good deal. Linky here.

I prefer thermoplastic molded cases, and keep my G-37 in one of those Road-Runner dread cases widely available at Guitar Center. There’s a small amount of north-south play that can be easily shimmed down by the endpin if desired. Personally, I like a slightly looser fit. They run $150 new these days, but go on sale all the time.

Thank you for your suggestions, but I have decided to get some foam and fabric and shim my existing case for a better fit.

I have ordered a Sliver Creek case. It just may fit right, We'll see!

That's good to hear! I've never seen one of these in person, how do you feel about the build quality?
Looks good, that 7 ply arch lid seems very strong and the latches (all 6 of them plus a lock) work well.

I own 3 Silver Creek cases.
They are great cases for a very good price.
My only problem with them was the one that I got for a new guitar build.
The guitar has a hand rubbed Schlack finish and the case reacted to the finish.
I traded cases with my 1982 Martin and now everything is good.
