Does anyone know how to get a replacement key for a hardshell case? I seem to have lost mine and would like to sell the case and guitar and figured I'd get more if I had the keys at least. If it's not a big deal (at GC) I'll not worry about it, but if it is, having the keys would be awesome.

So any place sell replacement keys for case locks? Google got nothing.


Edit: It got unlocked, lock not damaged. Should I get a key or sell it without one?

that works pretty well

naw, just kidding.

i've never heard of that. you should take it to a shop. i'm sure it's not the first time this has happened.

or hey, just pick the lock. or look up the blueprint for it and find a way to pick it from there

been locked out of a case and got it open by popping the hinges off from the back with a clawhammer once actually :P

depends on the type of hinge though..

You can contact the manufacturer typically they can give you replacements.

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

my lock died on my SG case and i just unscrewed the locking latch from the top opening part of the case.

i really dont' see a whole lot of point in locking a case. if somebody is going to steal your guitar, the will likely grab it in the case.

Most guitar cases use a universal key that music stores sell. The lock isn't there to keep people out, it's there to keep the latches from popping open.

Depending on the lock design, the tumblers can actually be unlocked with a screwdriver from a jewellery tool set.

Most of them can just be jimmied open with a pocketknife or even a small scissors. Like I said, they aren't made to keep anyone out.

I'm guessing they are a lever lock type lock, with one lever. The key is probably real simple and a music store will probably get it opened.
