Sorry for the late comment, but there have been some previous threads about 325 cases, in particular that not all 325s have the same body width and some cases won't fit them.

I recommend measuring the body to make sure that the case will fit that guitar. 8)

Also measure the body width (not thickness) at the upper bout and at its widest point. My recollection is that one of the 320 series I had (maybe the 320 MG with f-hole?) was too wide for a v63/v59 case.

Hi folks,

I have a Ricky Rose Morris 1998 (3 pickup) model from August 1964 and am desperately looking to get a matching case for it. It should be silver on the exterior, blue on the interior and have the badge logo near the carry handle. Can anyone help me source one of these from the 1964-66 era? I really want to get the guitar fixed up and running as a complete package again.....Any help appreciated. Many thanks

Please measure the lower bout. This is slightly to markedly different on just about every iteration of the 310-315-320-325 through the years. For example, the 70's-80's production 320's and 325's (NOT the "reissues") are markedly wider at the lower bout. You can tell because RIC used the same pickguards, so you can see more of the body below the lower edge of the pickguard on the 70's-80's instruments than on the '50's-60's standard production and "reissue" instruments. Also, until the last few years, before RIC switched over to CNC, every version had its own template which was used to hand-saw the bodies. It is this variance in width of the lower bout which will determine which case will fit which guitar.
