I am finishing up a flat-top, short neck mandolin and am looking for a good lightweight case for festivaling. The dimensions are on par with the shorter neck teen's A's (with the 12 fret neck join).
I'd like more protection than just a gig bag, so sturdy foam, but neck dimensions than can accommodate the shorter neck. I was thinking a travelite, but based on some pictures I've seen, there isn't much room to accommodate the shorter neck (about 1.5" shorter than an F-5 neck).
I was going to try the Access gig bag (not sure of its protectiveness), was considering a travelite (concerned about fit), then I've seen other travelite-esque cases out there, but figured I should ask folks who may already know.
Of course, if there are threads out there already, please point me because i could only find one!
