    The hardshell cases made in the 50's and I believe the 60's were made by a company called Victoria , if I recall correctly . G&G came later and I think they had some connection with Victoria .

    Old thread but:
    You are correct, it is Swedish case.
    At that time Fender cases were quite expensive so Swedish importer had their own cases.
    These cases are considered as the original cases although they are not made by Fender.

    No fender branding as I can remember but it did have that white label in the center. Seemed like it said "Kustom"

    "Koylon" ?
    Looks like the standard 56-57 Fender case.

    It looks a lot like an old (60's) Rickenbacker case.
