    Replacement latches for '50s Lifton etc. case?

    Where could I find replacement latches for an old Lifton/Geib/Stone case? It's likely a Lifton, but I wouldn't know. I just need one, the case is otherwise in fine (but used) shape. Can these latches even be replaced? I wouldn't know where to begin with the rivets. I need one of these...

    Other people playing your guitars...

    Black EDS-1235 in action

    On Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CIJP9ksnkMz/?hl=en. it is the later version with the soft (non-Florentine) cutaways and the mini-6 pickup in line with the bridge pickup of the lower neck (standard-6). Cool stuff!

    Jazz on a 1958-1961 ES-1235 (with mini-6)

    Whilst perusing Youtube: Stephane Grappelli with Pierre Cavalli; Lady Be Good, 1963. The video includes a guitar solo, though not on the mini-6. Here's another image of the guitar - and a song by the guitarist, though the song is probably not from this album!

    There is hope for rock and roll!

    The internet has led me to reaction videos. It warms my heart to see these reactions and makes me think that the future is bright for rock and roll. Perhaps there is a cynical way to understand these videos - but I choose to ignore any of these notions. I remember the first time I heard Led...
