Hope all had a good New Year.
I have been thinking of getting a Travelite case for my Gibson A-9 because of the protection quality and the travel convenience it offers at a reasonable price.
Yesterday I was ready to pull the trigger and get one through Elderly Instruments. I checked with the sales person by phone to make sure that the F style case would hold (and protect) my A model well. He suggested I do not buy it, he did not think it would do the job I wanted; the mando would move around and would have too much pressure on it (the case would not close easily on it). He did not want me to be unsatisfied.
Now I appreciated his honesty but it seems I have read discussions on this board that folks have used this case with an A model and were happy. # #Can anyone offer me their experience with using this case with an arch-top A style mandolin? Will this case work for my A-9? Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated. # #I should add that it is my understanding that the interior form is only available for the F style. Is this true?
Thanks much for responding as I am at a loss on what to do…
