    I suggest you buy a hard case for it with the design you like.

    you remove the 4 or so screws hidden under those little covers, (trying not to lose or damage them), then use a plastic opening tool or guitar pick to take the top plate off. then put it back together. not too hard, but nowhere near as easy as the bottom one, or the swappable plates on the not xl
