Here's the mother of all flight cases: USA Case of Bessemer, Michigan. Fully recessed hardware. Three butterfly latches, plus a lock. Spring-loaded handles. Ball corners. The works: Recessed, spring-loaded carrying handles: Full-length piano hinge: High-density foam interior with felt lining: One of the few cases I've ever found that's a perfect fit for flat-top Les Pauls. I use it for my '59 Melody Maker: Also fits my Custom Shop Les Paul Junior like a glove: This is by far the strongest, most robust protection you can get for your Les Paul. If you've got a vintage Junior, Special, or Melody Maker then you'll want this case. I'm asking $195 for local sale in NYC. I'm willing to ship for actual cost with FedEx Ground, which we can work out later.
