Hi All,

I've noticed that some of the Custom Shop Les Paul and SG Junior cases are now coming in a black/gold combination now, along with a black covered CoA. This looks like the shift from 2020 to 2021 years. Anybody hear of a reason for these changes? Thanks.

A search on Reverb just now for Custom Shop SG Juniors at Chicago Music Exchange, Music Zoo, and Rainbow Guitars (Tucson, AZ), show a new black /yellow Custom Shop case with those guitars. For starters...

Cases are changed for a few models

SGs now have 60’s style yellow lining

Cool!

Do the guitars fit in them or do you still have to put a cloth underneath the end of the body so the neck doesn't stick up?

I purchased a Custom Shop Junior with the brown case from a major retailer, but returned it (among other reasons) because the guitar didn't sit properly in the case. According to that store, this is a problem that Gibson Custom has with Junior cases. The new Custom Shop Junior I have now has the brown case and it sits perfectly in the case. The other case was simply a shoddy one, which should be unacceptable in a $3000-4000 guitar.

I think they just ship them in standard Les Paul cases. At least back when I got mine it seemedthat way. (‘01 and ‘06)
