    Tweed thermometer Telecaster case. My Surf Green Tele would look so good in one of those.

    But, it ain’t gonna happen, my old case will do just fine


    My old tweed case, it has seen better days but I like its mojo

    I don't get case purists. As long as the guitar is protected is all I really care about.
    Don't forget the gold piping, tho.

    They have been making the tweed Thermometer case since the ‘50s. This model has also been copied, a lot.
    Check Rondo or Amazon.

    I'm still using the case that I bought back in '82, when I bought my Tele neck.

    It's hanging in there, but really has seen better days.

    Nice to see this new case available, and at $179.

    The new case looks great. I missed the guitar shaped Fender cases and they're even better in tweed. Would be interested to find out how light they are. Gorgeous Teles guys!

    I love the looks and easier to carry guitar shaped cases like my LP case. But, nothing stacks better than the traditional Fender flat case.

    My LP case


    My stacked guitar collection.....Just kidding

    I bought this when I bought the Tele and I had them ship the guitar in it. Pretty sure I could drive my car over it without effect.

    I don’t know. They do make the better quality Fender cases and they also make thermometer cases.....

    I remember a Telecaster forum post I think it was where a new G&G thermometer case scratched a guys new quality Tele. The case had a staple sticking out on the inside and he did not notice it until he noticed the scratches.

    Too bad.
    Nevertheless, normally G&G is top notch. I hate that typical bad smell from fareast cases and G&G are nitro safe.
