Asked On: 01/27/2019

I have an older continental case that my parents bought me while I was in college. When was the American Case Company sold? I’m pretty sure I have an American made one. Thanks.

SHAR Answer:

Hello Sofia! American Case Company was originally an in-house brand and was manufactured in Ann Arbor, MI, but within the last decade, we have begun to work with manufacturers in China. We are still able to do certain repairs in house, so please feel free to contact us if you are interested in repair or replacement parts for your American Case.

The description states this case comes with a string tube, but when looking at the picture, I was not able to see where the string tube is located. Could you please clarify? I need to replace my old case (which I bought from SHAR over 30 years ago!) ASAP. Thank you!

SHAR Answer:

Hello, Esther. The string tube is secured to the inside of the long exterior pocket on the top of the case.
