I bought this case from a vintage guitar store here in L.A. many months ago.
Its in like-new condition. I actually was looking for a case for one of my Jumbo Guilds, when I stumbled across this, and it fit the guitar nicely! I have since found the proper Guild case, so I thought I would put this up on reverb or ebay or maybe even here...but I don't know what year they did this logo on the case. Its for a super jumbo (17") and it's a Canadian-made TKL (has the leather pull-tab on the compartment lid inside, with TKL logo embossed on it) and its interior is blue. Any ideas?

OK...nevermind. I tried 6 times to post a pic. I posted on the other Gibson forum, no problem. Sorry for the intrusion.

. . . just remove the "http://" stuff from out front (your case, above).

I have a tone feel and appearance from 1998. Or so I'm told.

I believe this case first appeared in 1999, when Gibson's acoustic lineup was significantly revamped.

It is exactly like the case my '00 J-100xtra jumbo came in when purchased new. The same "Tone-Feel-Appearance" logo also appears on the guitar's inner label.

Likewise, the logo appears on the case and inner label of my 2002 J-45 Rosewood. At some point later in the decade, the logo was discontinued.

Same logo on my 2005 J-45's case. I think they sopped using the logo, when the modern classic and True vintage designation arrived somewhere in 2007.

Thanks 62 burst with the help on the pic! Much appreciated!!!
And thanks to all who responded....now I have an idea of when this case was offered by Gibson.
It's a well-made case!
