These look so cool. Wish my AV '64 came with one:
Nice. I picked up a (non tweed non Fender) thermometer case for my (non fender) t-style, and I love it. I also found one at a garage sale that fits my Danelectro.
Funny thing is, even with a thermometer case, I’ve had people say “got a guitar there?”
Always loved that style; I have a brown one.
Guess it was only a matter of time before Fender reissued those, once they realized people were buying 'em from other suppliers.
Yeah I like em, might have to get one.
I was looking at them. Any indication that the new ones offer any more protection than the old ones? They are not known for doing much in that department.
I can barley get my guitars to wear a mask... If I start monitoring their temperatures, It'll be mutiny.
I got one with my Tele. Can't stash much gear in it - but it does look cool.
The new ones look identical to the old ones which are essentially a poorly balanced case that offers little protection.
But they do look great.
I only use if for home storage. It's absolutely hopeless as a gigging case.
They are heavy and expensive but I love mine.
Friend of mine plays fiddle, constantly asked ‘got a machine gun there?’
I’ve never understood the fascination with “thermometer” cases. For storage and ergonomics it seems rectangular is better. I’m now storing my guitars in gig bags for easier access and taking up less space.
Myself being a retro-nut, I lusted after one of those for my Tele partscaster. The price was the main thing for me. My 1996 52RI came with a rectangular tweed case, so to me it made sense to 'match'. I finally settled on one of these over at GFS-
I had a Tele that came with one and found that it was very "space-friendly." It was a bit slimmer, if I recall, and very form fitting. Took up way less space than the rectangle. A drawback is that there is no good way to fit all your AV or Custom Shop case candy in it.
I would love one for my AV, but am hesitant to sell the original case. Then I'd have two cases sitting around for one guitar, kind of defeating the purpose...
They look fantastic and make me want one.
the price tag, the weight and rather poor protection though, say nope. spend your money on something more useful.
I do have a Fender rectangular tweed case and a '94 Poodle case, which don't leave the house much.
I'm looking at a tweed case for classical guitar wich would fit my metal Resonator. at least the price is tempting. ah, IDK
Being known as a fragile guitar, the telecaster should always travel in bomb-proof injection-molded plastic with air bags inside.
Just buy a guitar for the empty case. Balance will be restored.
how are the latches on these things? are they made of that paper thin Chinese faux brass crap?
How do you like the case and the fit ? That’s great looking. Thinking the same for my new build
Funny how fender reissued these cases. Guys were getting crazy money for these, fender and aftermarket ones. I was one of the fools who paid too much for one but you could not find one. I bought one to go with my broadcaster just because that’s what it would have come with when new.
$239CAD!! I paid almost double that a few years ago. Yes they are useless in a way but still cool that they released new versions.
Me too, sold off the hard cases that came with my Fenders. Even my acoustic is in a Gator bag.
I've never gotten a guitar with a case, and I've never gotten an amp with the foot switch. Where do they all go? Is there a Switches N' Cases Emporium in Nebraska or somewhere where they sell nothing but those? It's a mystery.
