aren't the dimensions similar to a 335? I'd check a local gibson distributor
...that's how it looks to me...The opinion expressed above is my own and does not necessarily reflect the views of this station. Your mileage may vary...

Frank...

If the dimensions are that of a 335, I picked up a SKB case at my local Guitar Center that was collecting dust and that they made me a heck of a deal to get it out of stock. The latch broke a year later, but the cases carry a lifetime warranty and all I got from customer service is where can we send the latch and I had it in 3 days.

Otherwise ebay is always a place to start... 335 type cases...

Here is a very nice Gibson case...

and another one in 3 days, may go cheaper during the week...

Thanks for the info guys.. The Country Gent has a 16 3/4" lower bout. The other models are about 1" too small!! Thanks again for your information and prompt response. Frank Woodard

Frank,
Probably the only place to maybe find a Gibson case is on Ebay. Otherwise you will probably have to get a Gretsch case. The Gretsch case for the 17" thinline models should fit, I would think.

Frank,
You might also try calling Elderly Instruments: 888-473-5810. They carry a lot of cases. They may have a generic case to fit, or maybe they can order one.
