Refurbished Lifton for Sister and DS-150 guitar
Here's a Lifton case from the forties in pretty bad cosmetic shape............ but structurally a fine case made by the Lifton company from New York. Purple Velour interior. The Lifton company logo is in place, all latches and hinges are new, the case is structurally in excellent shape. Latches are old stock Excelsior brand.
The old black tolex covering is removed as well as all the hardware and new real leather with brown crocodile embossed pattern is applied. Embossed leather is cowhide that has been “stamped” with a decorative or exotic pattern. The leather is full-grain aniline cowhide finished with oils, natural waxes and resins. Surface with shiny appearance and ancient effect in color: Cognac. New premium quality real leather brown handle. After restoration a fully functional case with a luxury feel and charismatic looks.
Fits a Sister guitar or 150 model perfectly.
Price: Euro 1450,-
The leather for Slaman cases comes from selected companies. No animals are harmed only to obtain the leather. The cow leather used is of European (Tuscan) origin and a by-product of the meat industry. The leathers are being produced ecologically safe, according to laws and regulations, without AZO synthetic colors. European cowhide is a very clean product with little or no defects. Considered to be the best raw material available.
Sometimes embossed lambskin, also called sheepskin, is used. Again this is by-product of the meat industry, no animals are harmed for their skins so it is eco-friendly by reducing waste.
