This past month, like most, brought some interesting items through our Repair Shop. This beautiful guitar case is just one. It housed a Gibson J-200 which was pretty sweet in its own right, but the leather case – wow! This had a faux calf skin interior and super detailed hand tooled leather on the outside.
You never know what’s lurking in someone’s guitar or mando case (we’ll have to ask Mike H. to recount the shop’s most interesting guitar case find sometime – it’s a doozy). These super oxidized mando strings were from the case that held the great ‘lighter fluid can pickup‘ mando we featured a while back. Still in the delicate paper, but time and air have rendered these Gretsch mando strings pretty useless. Cool packaging though.
