I realized a couple of months ago that I own two customs. Hadn’t thought about it before.
1966 SG and 1982 Les Paul.

For the sake of comparison, I bought my ‘82 custom from a pawn shop about a year and a half ago for cdn $2000.00. Taxes in. That’s about $1500.00 usd. It’s all original and in very good condition. It came in the same kind of case as the op has but I bought a chainsaw case for it anyway.

I don't have the cake for a "50 something" Les Paul, maybe someone here can partner with me to bring this axe back?!?

3rd gen chainsaw case.
