Is this an original ES335 case? Early 80's reissue Dot
I've owned my 1984 Dot reissue (Cherry Red) since 1988 and it came in this ragged case. It was whipped even when I bought it back then! Peeling tolex and broken hinges. I added some small hinges and did a hack fix. It's held together all these years, but I was going to buy a set of replacement hinges and fix it right. Possibly rubber cement the loose tolex etc...
Based on the interior velour color, any ideas if this was original to these early reissues?
