If the lid of a Hiscox Pro II won't close on the guitar you can be absolutely sure that a Visesnut won't be suitable (I speak from experience).

Tangentially, I wasn't aware the Torres made angled necks like that ...?

Crossrock didn't fit either..

Ordered the TKL and that works pretty well. The lid closed at least. So until I want to upgrade to a custom case, the TKL will do!

You should try the Hiscox Pro-II GAD Dreadnaught with a 5" depth but your Hippner will be swimming in it unless you pad out the sides. I would get these 3M yellow sponges, wrap them up in Japanese rice paper and soft velvet to pad it out. Hiscox provides pads if you write to them.

The way Hiscox makes its case the guitar floats in it on pads. Big case though.
