This case is in excellent condition considering it’s age. We dated it based on the case logo and interior. The “Made in USA” and circle over “R” appeared first in 1973 following the Non Underscored Fender logo that adorned these cases until 1972. In 1979 Fender went to more of a Burgundy colored interior. This case features a dark orange interior and lock in leather “neck strap” snapping belt; dating it to the 73-78 era Fender Case.
