    Some help please

    I just noticed today that one of the catches on my Annie's case has been replaced

    It's the standard deluxe hard case as supplied in 1992

    The replacement catch is similar to the original but has a more pronounced lip at the top, now that I've noticed it it's starting to bug me a little as it's very obviously newer (& more shiny) than the others

    It's a standard catch not the drilled for a lock one

    A second hand one would be great if possible

    I found replacements on line. Let me do so digging and see if I still have the contact.




    Edit: I could not find my order info, but I found this place that has many different latches including the draw type our cases uses. They have different sizes with diagrams and dimensions.

    I’ll keep looking


    Edit..again: I’m back. I’m pretty sure this is the place. I have a receipt from them for a latch from a couple years ago, I just can’t tell if it was for my Fender case or Gretsch, different styles. I purchased them at different times. They sell both.

    Btw, replacement is very easy

    Find out who made the case and mail the manufacturer if they sell replacements?
