Hello ,

for a very special guitar build I am building a high-class leather case as well .
What I am looking for are the best metal parts, latches and hinges available.
I´d like to call those the RollsRoyce of the latches.
I do not need the usual stamped steel stuff. I want classy, heavy material. Iwant those to be a pleasure to touch.....

Can you name me some manufacturer, anywhere in the world, creating such things ?
I did a www-search, of course - just the cheap parts.

Thank you very much !!!

Look at the ones Ameritage uses if you can find it or figure it out. They are 10 leagues beyond what Gibson uses, though I'm sure somewhere you can find better than that even.

Thanks !

This " somewhere" is exact the place I am searching for.....:eek:la

I want the fine-arts-stuff. Oldschool-heavy, as said before like an old RR....

cheers
