This 1960's Gibson Melody Maker case is in good condition. The original gator skin covering is in tact, but shows heavy wear. The original latches are still in tact and functional, as well as the original handle and all of the hinges. The edging has begun to separate from around the bottom bout of the lid of the case. The interior of the case is in good shape, with a few discrepancies. The neck rest has been upgraded with some modern foam to protect the instrument. The storage area cover is present but not attached. The back wall of the bottom half of the case is split where the strap nut n the guitar rests. This case is great for a display in your studio, or for keeping a guitar safe around the house. Don't miss the chance to have a period accurate case for your 60's melody maker.
