I've tried to show these before. Hoping this works better. This is the case that my 1970 Yamaha FG180 came in. Off of Ebay from Nashville. The case was and is a piece of folk art. Hand made, it was unfinished plywood when I got it. Two artist friends of mine offered to take turns painting a side. Here's the results.

That's Very Cool,  I Like it, 
Although, it seems a shame to haul a gutar around in it and have it get banged up.

My wife says I can buy, sell swap guitars and cars as much as I want...
as long as I don't start swapping wives... sounds like a good deal to me.

You took the letters right out of my mouth   

 The only decoration on any of my cases is the one with all the old band and gear stickers on it.

Very nice work by your friends.

Yeah, it just sits on a book shelf in my music room. I change sides once a month. I would only use it on special occasions when I want to connect with my hippy past.  afro
