handle transplant

about a year ago, the handle for my guitar case broke. i guess that’s acceptable since i had literally taken that case around the world and back. but i don’t know why i resorted to buying another case altogether instead of trying to fix it. i think nowadays i tend to consider the latter first whenever something breaks. anyway, below is the handle for the case i bought to replace my original case which had broken at the handle. i wish i had taken a picture of the actual broken handle before i proceeded to tear it off the case. but whatever, i looks exaclty like the one below – just broken at one of the hinges. here, just to give you an idea.


just about a couple weeks ago, it dawned on me that somewhere, there’s gotta be a place that sells replacement parts for cases. sure enough, google turned up some satisfying results and i was able to order a replacement case handle from Elderly Instruments.

i’ll spare you the story, but this was a hell of a lot more difficult to install than my tap-tempo.
check out the new genuine leather handle. it’s much more comfortable than the wannabe-leather molded plastic handle that used to be there. in fact, i think you can even see the rivet holes where the old handle was.
