Thanks for the info Tom!
Thanks for all the hard work that went into this post Mike. I see that many of the guitars have their switchtips on, and there are marks in the case lids from the tips - do you actually store them this way with the tips on? (instead of in the internal storage compartment). And is that standard tissue paper you're using to bolster the padding? :hmm
No, hardly trapeze era. That's a later case. My guess is '58-'60.
What does the label on the inside of the lid say?
Mike...or anyone else that might know...I got a four latch case years ago and it has the Gibson logo with star on it. It also has one latch that doesn't have a swing latch on it. You have to press on a raised "button" and slide it to open the latch. As anyone seen one like this? I was wondering how rare these are and what year these might have been made.
I've never seen one. :hank
