Does anybody have an idea where to get a case for a 481? Thanks.

Hello JSoshea
As you've surmised, original 480-481 Series Rickenbacker cases are no longer available. I adapted another Rickenbacker vintage style case originally for a 350V63 model to fit my 480 a few years ago. See this thread over on the RickResource Forum (RRF). I modified the 360 case by moving the right hand side wood block of the Accessory compartment over a few inches leftward, to accommodate the extended horn of the 480 model.

The RRF thread is called "Photographs of the 480 Series"
http://www.rickresource.com/forum/viewt ... &start=225


I've enclosed the pictures from that RRF thread of how the top horn of my 480 gets tucked under the modified Accessory compartment lid.

Correct that typo in the third sentence --- not "360 case" but 350V63 vintage case

Thank you so much.
I have been wanting a RIC vintage case to replace the tweed Strat case that my 481 came in.

I have been wondering which case to get and I knew that the biggest problem was that accessory compartment.

So a big thank you to 8MilesHigher!

I would like it if you would post the procedure for modifying the case. I plan on getting a new vintage case (350/v63) for my 481.
