I have a 1953-54 CG and it's case is just too far gone to save.

Where would you suggest I get a case. Also, I'm not wealthy, cost is a factor to some extent.

Advice welcome. Thanks

I've found some of the 54 key keyboard cases short enough and reasonable. I usually look on Musicans Freind first

Thanks, Mark. That's on the list as a possibility.

Does anyone do repairs? Someone who has the tools and know-how might be able to fix it. It ain't me.

Kevin Hatton built me a case for my Fender Custom Triple. I'm very happy with it.

I'll have to contact him to see if he would build for a Gibson Console Grande. He advertises Fender cases and several pedal guitar brands, but not Gibson explicitly.

Good idea, I'll email him.

I think Wade Thomas would be more than happy to build you a case. Very Happy

I don't have any contact info. I searched and found a couple posts on the "old Forum." Do you have any contact info, Erv?
