Vintage Reunion Blues repairs by Superfine

Post by slipmo » Tue Apr 20, 2021 4:58 pm

Big ups to Tom Rice @ Superfine cases.

I have a vintage original RB SF case in British tan leather with the red interior and my zipper was trashed. Tom was able to repair the zipper and padding and keep the case as original as possible. I just love the patina on this case with its years of use. Now its ready for another 30 years of service.

Here it is with new zipper and leather welting/piping and a matching strap to replace the lost original

Very reasonable rate and quick turnaround. Tom has created an amazing resource for our community

Nice! The zippers on all cases are always one of the weak points. Some cases also have permanently attached straps that eventually go.

Sweet! My zipper has been on the fritz for years now, and the leather stores in NYC seemed a bit hesitant to work on a bag like this when I've gone in the past.
