    Default Anyone recognize this case?

    It has a logo, and a distinctive look. But this is only the second one I've seen in 15 years (unless it is the same one I bought at the Seattle Goodwill and later sold to someone else). If I knew where this case came from I would try to get more of them.

    It looks a bit like these two to me. I own the 2nd one pictured. I removed the guts of mine when I got it as it was set up for violin & mandolin. I made the foam form and upholstered it. I still use mine.

    * I just noticed the 1st case I posted is quite different from mine.

    Here's a Harptone double case that is currently on Ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Harptone-do...MAAOSwHOZgQSX7

    I believe this is what my case is/was, same 3 latch system, similar interior design prior to my gutting it.

    Sorry, but neither of those cases is anywhere close to the one I posted.

    What sets this case apart: yellow lining, waffle-textured foam, 30x12 interior, but most of all the black triangular patch with a white stylized guitar image, apparently constituting a logo of some kind. I was wondering whether anyone recognized the logo.

    Paged through a gazillion "guitar triangle logo" images that I Googled, didn't find a match. Good luck.

    I also took a little spin through google images, searching on "guitar logo" and "guitar logo triangle," with very different results (oddly), but not this. That actually may help a little. I think this is therefore not from a major corporation or company, and is most likely a custom job. Yes, that was probably a reasonable assumption from the start, but this is a process of elimination. You haven't a closer picture of the logo, do you? I wonder if there is any writing in that dark horizontal bar.
    But that's just my opinion. I could be wrong. - Dennis Miller

    Well, it might be the same one I bought & sold years ago ... but I no longer have those photos.
