I’m trying to find out what company from Canada made this type of case. Mine has a couple missing pieces and I’m trying to contact the manufacturer for replacement parts. I emailed Gibson CS but they just stated they did not make cases and gave me a list of parts suppliers but none of them dealt with cases. Anywho..

That’s the case. I’m looking for hinges , clasps, and the little leather piece to open the inside compartment. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I think your in for a difficult chase.

I'd buy a nice case for $100 and have a good sign shop take care of the rest.

I can't be certain but it looks like a TKL to me.

+1 on TKL

I think the brown leather tab that opens the case pocket should say "TKL" on it.

I asked about a black case for my M2M LPC, and I was told Gibson didn't have them anymore;-(

Man, I really wish they would go back to using the black cases for R7-R9s. They are superior to the new brown lifton-style cases in pretty much every way.

The latest case I got for an R9 a few weeks ago had the old crappy latches, where only one actually locks in place. WTF?

GIBSON, PLEASE BRING BACK THE BLACK TKL CASE!!!!!!!

.........because they cost Gibson more money.

Check out the Cedar Creek Case Website if you want something nice, with some cool vibe. They are owned by TKL.

You should send a pic to TKL. They can confirm they made the case.

The brown CS case I got on my 2 R8's (2012 and 2016) were very nice; the one I got last month not so much.

mfolet's NGD thread shows a "shallow" brown case, but I am not sure if Gibson is shipping all the 2018s with them, or only special runs.

+1000 They were great to work with, and I've ordered a few cases from them.

This is one of their cases for a Super 400, dual neck blocks, and really good padding. I was able to spec materials and color.
