not sure if there are 3x6 gtf cases but if you pm az member vinniebabarooch he will let you know. I believe he has all of the remaining gtf stock that IndyQ had and they were the big distributor for them. Very nice cases, btw.

The orig guy from It's George cases, pretty sure his name is Mike Roberts, I think he tried a comeback a few years ago making a new round of It's George cases. Not 100% sure but I think that has since shut down.

good luck

IIRC GTF's were made by J. Barton. He just quit making them. Both of these brands pop-up for sale from time-to-time.

Twenty years ago I visited with It’s George in Shreveport and got them to engrave my name on the cap of my case. Not long after that they dropped out of the business.

I'm 90% sure that It's George made a comeback attempt producing cases in the last 5-10 years.

maybe someone who knows for sure will chime in.

I seem to remember a second round of the It's George cases. I don't know if they were somehow different from the originals- maybe the latch or something? You can find them on e bay almost any given week.

Check Omega Cues, they were the only ones I'v even seen carrying the 3x6 versions.

I have a 'naked' 2x4 Centennial case if anyone is interested. It's never been wrapped.

Under a new owner. He sold a few years back. I spoke to him about buying the biz as did another person on AZB but couldn't work out a deal. Obviously, someone else did

I need the cover (top) for a It's George 1x2. At this point I don't even care if it matches. Any help is appreciated.

They were made for Roy Mallot at IndyQ, the GTF that stood for George, Thomas, & Fallinni, apprently when Roy went to the big Pool Room in the sky.

Vinny bought the inventory.
