Gibson USA vintage hard shell case from the early 1970's that fits all Les Paul models. My'74 LP custom black beauty slept in it for many years'til I found another the same in better, less used shape so I swapped and do not need this any longer so i'm passing it along to someone in need for their baby. Yes , it is truly and honestly heavily road worn as seen in all the pix but a true vintage piece of Gibson history from the classic rock days of REAL music.
The edges have lots of missing outer material around the bottom side especially from normal moving around, no abuse. Handle and hinges are fine and working, of the 4 latches, all are fine and functional except for the 1 at the headstock end, as seen, that is missing the catch, but the remaining 3 do the job just fine to keep it securely closed tight.All of the steel bumpers on back and sides are there. The Gibson logo in silver paint has long since worn off if it was even there on this older model. The gorgeous plush royal purple interior is in very nice shape with no negative issues and true in color to this era of LP cases. I did some gluing around the bottom back side edge seam where the most wood is exposed to be sure it is structurally sound.
