Hey guys,

just want to check with you...does this case look real?

If so, from what year might it be with that style TKL badge?

Thanks in advance,

It is the TKL badge that has me wondering...was that badge used in all the Art & Historic LP cases or did it change to the plastic rectangle shaped TKL badge at some stage?

That's my favorite Custom case. It's legit.

Those tags have changed from time to time.
Some have a leather tab with a 'Gibson' impression. Some say TKL and others are plastic.

I see no rhyme or reason for the difference in the tabs.

Those cases appeared around 1998, right after the short run of elephant skin cases.
