I am curious to know more about these from-the-factory flight cases, as my standard came in a flight case that looks as old as the guitar and has no (brand) name on it to speak.

Has anyone confirmed whether the different colored cases went with any specific model, meaning were the blue cases for artists, etc...? Also, I have several cases that are red. Does anyone know if the red cases are from the Bean factory? Obviously most cases are either blue or orange. I also have a black interior case for one of my basses, but the case is identical to the others in every other way. Wondering.
Thanks

I know that Mark and Travis usually used whatever they could get. I would imagine that if the case manufacture said they were out of blue or black lining and all they had was red, then they would have said fine, use that and send them as soon as you can.
Cliffy(Travis) was very anal about quality on the guitars, but cases were only what the guitars went in. I've seen red lining's in TB cases around `77/`78

the very first cases were made by Harptone in `74/`75 and were an oblong case much the same as some of the Gibson SG cases of that time. Mine(#011) had a nice, dark blue velvet lining.

Could one of the bean geniuses on this board take a look at the pictures of standard number 1415 on the data base and tell me if the case is indeed original. there are many photos of the case. thanks

Check that - I meant to write that is looks to a non original. Originals have Cheney latches.

I dunno, I've seen a few late `70's cases that look exactly like that. One of my best friends had a Standard and his case looked exactly like that one.

I had a wedge and it had the same case vincent is talking about, blue anvil w/ grey interior foam but the foam was falling apart and it was owned by Don friggin' Dokken!!
I also had a white artist that was in it's supposed original case, it was just a standard 70's black hsc, but it was nice and it fit perfectly and had no distinguishing features that would differentiate it from other standard cases of the 70's.
