I didn't see a specific area to post this, so I'm posting it here.

I have one of those Gibson "chainsaw" Protector case for my Les Paul. It is a Gen 3, which means that unlike the other versions, this one has a set of metal latches, which are riveted into the case.

Two of those latches are gone, as in I don't have them.

All of the replacement latches I have seen out there are for other versions of the case.

Does anyone know of a source for those metal latches ?

the only person I have ever seen to have these is a damn crook, documented here and I would not point you to that kind of person.

I did go look at his reverb site and it says he is sold out, anyways.

to me, these metal latches are pretty typical draw latch and something "close enough for rock and roll" might be available at your local hardware store etc. maybe look in the marine section too....

hardcore, thanks for the fair warning.

uncle vinnie, yeah, I got some of those. doesn't present a very professional image.

I have to say that your post was great for a laugh, though. Thanks for starting off my day with a smile.
