This Fender Stratocaster/ Telecaster from 1956-1958 is in above average condition. There is moderate wear on the tweed on the exterior of the case, with no major rips or tears. All or the original latches, hinges, and case feet are present and in good functional condition. The leather on the ends of the case is in good shape, with only one significant tear. The stitching and piping is also in good condition, with no signs of pulling off. The interior is in excellent condition, better than the exterior. There are no rips, tears, stains, or funny smells, and the interior maintains it's bright red color. The lining has begun to separate from the interior, but only slightly, which is easily repaired. The original storage area is present, as well as the cover which is firmly attached. All in all, a perfectly viable case for your late 60's Strat or Tele.
