List price is 25.99....it has been sold online as high as 38.00. LOCK IS SILVER (CHROME) FINISH
This lock is silver finish. Comes with nickel rivets! *
Also comes with a plastic gasket which is might be needed to make the top and lower portions of the lock 'meet' correctly on your guitar case. SOme Gibson cases will require this gasket and some will not.
See pics above. In order to understand the fit and installation process....Please read the whole ad!!!!!
The lock comes with paper instructions on setting the combination. If requested, I will send detailed installation instructions via email. No special tools are required but some understanding of basic shop tools is helpful.
This is a Gibson OEM replacement combination lock for many of the TKL cases that came with silver hardware....for many of the factory models including es 335, es175, SG, Les Paul Standard, Explorer, Flying V and many others. This is not just a replacement...it is the OEM unit that Gibson uses on the cases which are branded Gibson TKL!
Lock can be mounted two ways: When the gasket is not used, the lock mounts as a "flush mount" type. On many cases, the gasket will have to be used in order to make the upper and lower parts of the lock meet correctly.
On some years of the tan/pink case, lock drops into the old space with no mods*. The manufacturer refers to this lock as "LH": (Left hand thumb button) Most Gibson cases use the LH type. The numbers will appear correctly....readable from the point of view of opening the case lid...just as on your old case.
Comes with 6 TKL split rivets for a pro-looking installation ** **We include the rivet size that we have found to be the most standard size which is correct for MOST gibson case depths...if you know the exact size length you require you can email us that. If you discover that you require a different size AFTER you receive the lock, there will be a slight charge to send more rivets. We want to help you get your case back on the road and get you making some good music! The rivet needs to poke through the wood about an eighth of an inch for the correct "clinch". (Many of the original cases had factory screws in the upper hasp....we do not include those 2 screws but a comparable size in brass can be purchased at Home Depot. If you are replacing a broken lock, it is recommended that you reuse those two screws if your case has them).
Directions for setting combination are included....you can leave the numbers set on "000" with the red tag in, or set the lock to your chosen number.
If your case combination was lost and you then had to break into the case, this is your chance to restore your case to factory original.
* This is the exact lock used on many newer Gibson-TKL cases. On cases from some years in the 90's, I have found some of the original locks to be 1/8th inch longer than this new one. The new one will still work as a good replacement on those cases (I have done it successfully many times); the only thing that may be visible is a slight crease in the tolex made by your original lock; two of the holes may have to be adjusted; I have placed many locks in those cases with excellent results. TKL no longer makes or sells the older style lock so this is the best option and, again, it works fine. The last pic shows a lock I installed on one of my own cases where the original lock was 1/8th inch longer...you can barely see a crease created from the original lock...and I filled two holes which were right at the edge of the lock...no one would notice unless you pointed it out. You can call me if you have questions about your installation process.
Measurement: Lock square is 2 and 9/16ths x 1 and 5/16ths inches ---- please compare your required measurement before bidding

**Regarding Rivet Size: I include a set of rivets with this lock that are standard on most Gibson cases. If you know exactly what size rivet you need, please email me and I will include that size with the lock. If you find you need a different size rivet AFTER you receive the lock, you can order a different size at a modest additional charge which will cover my costs.
