    Sinve this is a Tele forum I'm guessing you guys have are familiar with tweed cases.
    What I'm wondering is, is it safe to apply Scotchgard to them?
    I'm just looking for a little water and stain resistance.

    I’m not sure about scotchgard but dang those tweed cases scratch easy
    I guess it’s because of the lacquer

    Un-lacquered tweed? Yeah, you can Scotchgard it.

    Thanks guys. Mine all seem to be un-lacquered, so I'll give one a try and see what happens.
    I guess the worse I could end up with would be a "relicked" case.

    I wouldn't "lick" it to begin with, why would someone "re-lick" it?

    Care? Keep away moisture, dirt, dust or other foreign objects that will adhere to the tweed.
