WTB Original Bach leather gig bag

I am looking for one of these dark brown leather gig bags that Bach sold for some time. I can't find any pics online so I can't show you what I mean.

I think they have been selling them for some years in the 90's and early 2000's. But it looks like they aren't available anymore. Anyone got one of these?

Thanks!

If it's what I had, it was a floppy vinyl bag branded Bach. I gave it away and the guy was so happy to get it.

Sounds exactly like what I am looking for.

It’s a case cover. I think 744 was for the large tenors.

Cascio Interstate Music has one in stock according to their site, but that’s pretty spendy for a vinyl bag... ( I’m not affiliated with the company ).

I was looking for one last night because I have an ugly case that I’d like to cover up. I might simply dig out the sewing machine and see if it can sew vinyl and make one.

Bach had a leather gig bag listed for a while, and my assumption had been that was what the OP was looking for.

There are a couple of Bach "leather" bags at the following links, but they're not the brown style I'd seen in the old catalogs..

Those look pretty similar, but I am looking for an actual bag, not a case cover. But the design and the material are the same.

Thanks for that! But yeah, those are not the same style.
I don't think those are still available commercialy. I hope someone wants to sell his old one :-)
