Fender Usa Rare Blue Interior 1950s-1960s-70s Original Hard Case :
Fender 1950s Original Hard Case (Rare Blue Interior). Condition is Used.
You won't be finding them this pristine and well kept!
1950s to possibly early early 1960s Fender case here. This one, I have never seen except for reissues.
Exterior is great for being nearly 70 years of age. As you can see, some rust on the locks and hinges. Nothing a bit of elbow grease won't fix (personally I would keep it on, and it does not hurt the functionality). Also some scuffs of course. Now, those two silver dollar-ish sized rips. I simply stuffed some tissue in them to push them back to shape, and slapped some electrical tape on them, just so they were not such an eyesore. If you don't like it? Simply take the tape off and the tissue out and it will be just like as shown in the picture I have provided!
Now, the biggie...interior.
We all know the Orange, Burnt Orange, White, and Black. But when I opened up this bad boy...blue?! Never seen it. Thought it may have been redone but nope, all original. Everything is tight and tidy.
I did some extensive research and after many Fender forums, I came across an older gentleman who recalls an old buddy of his who got a '61 Fender with a case with the same interior and he hasn't seen one since. Feel free to do your own research as well!!
Overall I give this a 7.5/10 just because or the pure rarity. Sure the metal is in some rough patches but it is all functional and sturdy as a rock. Also can be cleaned up if you wish to restore it to day 1.
Feel free to message me with any questions, and don't be afraid to make an offer!!
