How to open a Fender Tweed Case

Messages

I just received my '52 Tele today. Brand new, from the box.
The only problem with it is that I just can't the tweed case open!

It appears to be locked. I've never had a Fender case before, so maybe there's some ridicules easy way to open it. But I just can't figure it out.

I've tried everything!

Please tell me you do realize that the actual lock itself slides which then pops the hinge on the lock itself?

Haha, I used like 30 minutes to try to get it open. I was almost about to brake it open :lol:

Anyway, played it for a few hours now. Great guitar!

Nice guitar! Don't feel bad.

I locked myself out of my Gibson 135 case the day I got it.

LOL! I had the EXACT same experience with mine when it arrived some months ago! I've never felt so dumb! I'm actually glad to hear that I'm not alone with this.. :BEER

I'll refrain from making any pithy comments lest someone bring up some really embarrassing examples of my lack of intelligence... :D

Haha yeah! I've never felt dumber when I asked someone else to try open it. They just pushed the two locks to each side and it opened.

"What the.. I used hours to figure out that... "

Now I know how those people who get nominated for the Darwin Awards feels like.. :p
