I've got a 1968 Gibson EB3, I purchased it new, back in the day, I was given the choice of the fitted Gibson case, and an aftermarket case that seems to have some slop in the way the bass fit in it. I went for the extra bucks and bought the fitted case. 45 years and countless gigs later, I'm glad I did.
