Default Godin Motif Bag?

I'm buying a Godin Motif and looking for a gig bag, and can't find one. I've also looked for a bag for the Art and Lutherie Ami which is about the same size, with no luck. It's an odd shaped guitar and I have yet to find a bag that suits the guitar. It has a full length (38") but a short body (18") and a lower bout of 13" with an upper bout of 9.5". I suspect that I will not be able to find an exact fit, but even something close would be nice. any suggestions?

Default Found a bag

Evan,

I googled Godin Motif bag and came up with this. Might work for you.

Always learning;

I had not seen the La Patrie bag, I'll be checking it out. As your handle suggests, "always learning." Thank you for the information.

The GS Mini bag works well with the Motif. Trouble is (was) it has Taylor stamped all over it!

Ewalling; Thank you for the suggestion--I'll be taking a look.

Always Learning; The Aklot bag for 40-41 inch guitars has a built in humidifier.
Not sure if it's the right bag for the Motif.

I have a question in to Godin regarding a bag for the Motif.

STOP THE PRESS! I received the Godin yesterday and it will be returned. I've been spoiled by the ergonomic features of my Emerald guitars--the Godin, like the Kremona Sophia, feels bulky and sharp. the neck of the Godin also turns out to be too thin for my taste and hand. As it stands, the Emerald X10 nylon string guitar is my keeper.

Just now seeing this, Evan.
I have a Motif/Ami bag if you change your mind.

TR;

Thank you. I liked the Motif but found the neck not suitable for me. I also realized that I've been spoiled by Emerald's ergonomic and custom features. It looks like I can't go back. I returned the Motive and now looking for an Emerald 7. This hunting is hard work.
