This case has a Gibson badge and it fits a J-185 well. A round-shouldered J-45 also fits but it does swim a bit. We're not sure if the case is made by Lifton or Stone but both companies made Gibson cases in the 1950s. The exterior of the case is in good structural and cosmetic condition with a little light scuffing around the edges. The green felt interior is in good shape but it is a bit bunched up and torn where it caught on the end pin. The lid is arched and the bottom is flat. There is no musty or smoky smell.
