Default taylor guitar case handle problem

Hi,

I own a 414ce and have loved it for a little under two years. The handle on the case is coming apart at the hinged area where the handle attaches to the case. Are there any fixes?

I have an '07 414 and have had to have the case handle replaced twice. The second time it took my dealer almost 4 months to get the replacement handle from Taylor (it was backordered). While I was waiting on it, I bought a nice brown taylor case here on the forum that is supposed to have better hardware.
So, yes there is a fix, but you have to take it back to your dealer to have it done. The dealer covered mine under warranty both times, so I can't complain too much.
Good luck
Hal

You might also consider taking it to a luggage shop that does repairs. They could probably do it fairly quickly, although not under warranty.

Are you the original owner (with a warranty). I had a case for a couple years when the handle went ... I got a NEW caase from Taylor. Give customer service a ring !!!
