Hi all.

This is in regards to the 90's style case with the (far superior and immeasurably cooler) leather handle. I checked the search and the are a lot of "how to replace" the handle, but nothing about "I caught it before it broke, what do I do to fix it?"

Anyone out there that has fixed one of these, I'd love to hear how. Also how did you get the brass to STOP digging into the handle?

Thanks in advance, I'm new here so, you know. Hey, nice place you got going on. ����

SlimSlashie,

Can you post a photo of the damaged handle?

As you can see, it's not broke YET. But it will be, and that is my concern.
I'm thinking I'm going to have to do something about the brass digging into it, as well as somehow patch the part that's tearing.

(I also have a double neck case that this is happening on. That is... disheartening. I love that guitar.

Thanks again, I appreciate it buddy.

From the looks of that I would say that the 90s style case is NOT "far superior" but quite the opposite. The newer handles don't have sharp brass edges cutting through the leather.

It seems you need to wrap the leather handle in something that the brass won't cut into so fast, sorry I don't have a suggestion as to what that might be. Some sort of heavy duty fabric tape??
