So my beautiful 60th Anniversary R9 came with the also beautiful Lifton reissue case with the lifton badge inside and the Gibson badge on the outside without the word "custom" on it. Now it seems only the more expensive reissues (murphy lab heavy and ultra heavy aged) comes with them. What's the deal with it? Has it always been like that? All the other reissues come with the other version of the case, without the lifton badge and with the badge "gibson custom" on the outside.

It's a nice case. My favorite iteration. I think they are beautiful. I really like the lifton badge on the inside, a really nice touch. I would guess they started adding that badge in mid/late 2018. In some cases (get it) I can appreciate the case just as much as guitar!

Didn’t know that … my 2018 Historic ‘60 has the Lifton case you are referencing.
