I found a Gator bag that fits like it is made for my Electro 6 HP73. It is the Gator G-PG-61 pro-Go Ultimate 61 note keyboard gig bag. https://www.amazon.com/Gator-Ultimate-R ... B00T0OJJFY

I tried the Gator 76 key gig bag that was cheaper, but it fit like a bad suite. Since there are no modulation or pitch bend wheels at the end of the keyboard, the 61 key bags fit the NE6 73. The gator pro is exactly the correct length and has an inch of padding built into all sides. It is about twice the price of the Gator gig bags, but definitely a step up. The Gator GKB-61 may also fit, but I decided to buy the better case with more padding. Keep in mind that the NE 6 HP73 is not the same length as the NE6 D73 with the waterfall keys! I purchased mine through Guitar Center because of there price matching, 45 day easy returns and they have a local store (no return shipping)….tony

The Fusion keyboard 6 bag should fit the E6D 73 quite well. They are well made bags. Just as light as the Nord bag but better padding.

There are some US retailers that sell them.

Thanks twofarmers - I'll check dimensions; wondering if the Slim version would fit the NS2EX73.

I have the Gator slim 76 bag, and it's perfect, with a bit of room. Don't get the 61. It'll be too small.

Same like MonkeyDonkey. I bought the Gator G-PG-76 Slim. Ok, it's a little bit too long, but with the velcro straps, my NE6 73 has never moved inside the gig bag. Until now, no problem. The padding is much better than the Nord official gig bag and the price is right.

This lonely post might be of interest to the OP. The Nord 76 case (with the large front pocket) can fit an Electro 73 plus a 49er comfortably. I use this solution often for rehearsals, it's good for car transport and short schlepps.

I use this one:

it has enough space for my Nord5d/73 and a sustain-pedal.

I will also advise to check out the Fusion Bags. Incredible quality , not the cheapest, but you can be sure it's gonna be safe for your expensive keyboard and it has everything you need - good pockets, stitchery is tough,backstraps (mine goes to 18kg. with all the gear, not a problem), it has paddings on the inside and you can arrange them as you wish.Also there are convinient holders on the sides for 2 people carrying if you're gonna use that it's very useful. I've been using mine for a year now daily it's good as new!

I use ''keyboard 6 (63-73)'' model and it fits perfect on my NE5HP73.

When I upgraded from the Electro 3HP to an Electro 6HP I needed another gig bag. As they no longer make the Nord bag for the Electro HP versions (which deleted the backpack straps which I loved with my Electro 2 bag), I had to go out into the market. I did end up getting one of the Gator Pro-Go-61 cases (I carry a gig bag for cables/accessories so I didn't need the extra length of the slim 76) and have been very happy with it. It is a little bulkier than the Nord, but I also feel more comfortable carrying it out and about and the backpack straps are awesome. It's a remarkably good fit, and I don't feel nervous stacking the stand and throne on the keyboard in my trunk like I used to with the flimsy Nord bag.
